Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is especially useful as a team tool for projects, such as cross-state groups, or multi-institutional groups, that need to collaborate in near real-time with document creation and editing. Miro helps us to collaborate in almost real-time, across large geographical areas or even across multiple floors in a single building. Scope depends on the project.
  • Sticky Note Boards
  • Team Breakout Groups
  • Document Sharing
  • Flow Chart Templates
  • Slow speed
  • Cumbersome interface for Adobe Users
  • Lack of how-to guides for new users who are unfamiliar with this type of program
  • Needs more thoughtful categories for templates
  • Improves team productivity with diverse teams
  • Reduces some project completion times
  • No impact on overall productivity, though
  • Novice users gain traction quickly
It was fast, easy, and intuitive. Our systems administrator was handling most of the onboarding process, but she was able to send out an invitation to each user, who was then able to create their own account within our system. The process took only minutes before a new user was able to get the program operational. The fast pace of onboarding was helpful and allowed us to add key users who needed access rather than a blanket process that captured all users, many of whom may not need the tools.
Miro's process was quick and straightforward. We were able to add this program to our staff toolkit with ease. Onboarding was a simple process. Training new users was minimal. Experienced graphics specialists were able to hit the ground running. The program fits well with our mix of software, granting easy graphics ability to a large group of users with speed and agility.
Miro has helped our teams to integrate across geographical locations and physical boundaries. Project groups can come together with ease to work jointly on a document, process, or flow chart. We also have used the Sticky Notes for large-scale projects, such as Journey Mapping, to create a quick and professional-looking output document after the collaboration phase is complete.

Asana is better for time tracking, whereas Miro helps more with developing graphics from templates. Both are excellent collaboration tools and reach users easily, depending on their project needs, timelines, and other aspects. Miro's graphics capacity and simplicity were key factors in adding this tool to our mix. It offered a lot of value for the dollars expended.
I like its flexibility and the easy new user adds for team-based projects. It is easy to add images and graphics to share with others on the team. Templates are good, bright, and colorful. It might be more helpful to expand categories for templates. However, the program has a somewhat limited capacity for output. Often it is faster and easier just to create something in Adobe to share, rather than building on your site, if a user is adept with Adobe. For novice users, Miro is the way to go, as there is very little learning curve to being able to produce a professional-looking document in a reasonable time frame. Saving time otherwise spent on training is a boon to any organization.
