Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro for project planning, daily task management, making problem trees to break down problems, preparing storylines for presentations, visualizing frameworks, and storing notes. I use Miro to do these solo and easily collaborate on these things with others. I've also used Miro to lead development sessions that involve written exercises, both individually and in groups.
  • Group feedback on problem trees.
  • Brainstorming & voting on solution ideas.
  • Easily creating visual flows, then screenshotting & copying to PowerPoint.
  • Group exercises that people would normally do together in-person on a whiteboard.
  • When more than 10 people are on the board at once, it gets slow.
  • Copy-pasting bullets from Word or OneNote into Miro has weird spaces in it.
  • When there are too many objects on the page, Miro slows down considerably to the point of being unable to use. At that point I have to start a new board, leading me to accumulate several boards when one would have done the job.
  • Improved productivity via small group task management.
  • More creative ideas via unbiased group brainstorming and idea collection.
  • Reduced time to create clear visuals in presentations.
Miro is excellently designed, very user-centric. However, it is frustrating that a single board can get so easily slowed down as you accumulate objects that it becomes unusable. This has an unfortunate effect of making boards become more difficult to use as they become increasingly more valuable and important to use and navigate.
I have tried to integrate Miro with Teams to unsuccessful effect. Unsure whether this is because of an issue with Miro or an issue with my employer's restrictions on Microsoft Teams.
It has been so effective, that I now prefer virtual meetings over Miro rather than in-person meetings with a whiteboard. It's easier to capture larger and clearer information, and edit information as you go along, in Miro rather than an in-person whiteboard. There is also nearly unlimited space on a Miro board. Finally, all users have editing rights at the same time in Miro, eliminating the "tyranny of the pen" that occurs with many in-person whiteboards.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Miro is well suited for group problem-solving using frameworks - problem trees to break down problems, 2x2 return on investment matrixes, project-planning using Kanban boards or timelines. It's also good for asking for written, individual contributions from members of a team before discussing or brainstorming out loud. It is also very adept at quickly creating visually pleasing process flows. Miro is not well suited for advanced task management across a large team.
