Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro to help drive brainstorming/ideation sessions, as well as other team workshop events. Miro helps teams collaborate with each other in a shared workspace that is much more dynamic than a shared word document. Having timers and the ability to allow others to follow you as you navigate through a board is extremely beneficial in adding/maintaining the structure of a workshop.
  • Allows for cross-functional teams to better work together remotely
  • Helpful templates to get a workshop started and have actionable insights afterwards.
  • The ability to share out or look back on is helpful so that things are never lost
  • Allow for integrations that can be built in-house.
  • Sometimes a board can be overwhelming. Have the ability to easily break different parts of a board into individual tabs to help keep organize things afterwards.
  • Lacks the ability to hide content from certain users.
  • Improved productivity of the team as a whole to generate new ideas and build plans off of
  • It has improved collaboration with cross functional teams
  • Helped workshop through a major data problem that the team was facing by being able to reverse brainstorm
Miro is extremely easy to implement since it is SaaS-based. You do not need to download anything and any modern browser can easily handle running it. The hardest part will be deciding which plan to choose and how many seats you will require to get the most bang for your buck.
You can easily connect with Slack or many other tools that you may already have set up. This will only help streamline your current workflow and not add an additional hindrance on productivity. There is also an app store with many more integrations that you can easily search for and find. These only take seconds to integrate.
Our team is scattered across the globe in multiple different time zones. With Miro, we are able to easily collaborate either synchronously or asynchronously. We can all agree to meet together virtually at a given time or plan to work on a Miro board individually if we do not all need to be together on a call.

  • MURAL and FigJam
Miro is much more feature-packed and easy to use. The user interface is top-notch and I can easily host a workshop with users who have never used the software before. FigJam is still too early in its lifecycle to be able to compare apples-to-apples. Mural is very similar, but feels much more clunky because its features aren't as intuitive as Miro's. For instance, the voting mechanism is a lot harder to get right in Mural than it is in Miro.
Figma, Slack, Microsoft Visual Studio Code
Miro is great for easily gathering everyone's thoughts and ideas in one place, whereas a word document can easily become overloaded and become multiple pages. With Miro, you are able to move content around and group ideas together that may share a similar theme. Miro is not great for sharing concise feedback with stakeholders. You would most likely need to take the learnings from the Miro board and apply them to a separate word document or slide deck.
