Overall Satisfaction with Miro

The majority of the use that I get out of Miro is that I use it during our software PI Planning events where we have work items that we need to schedule during a specific time block. So Miro allows me to have an easy to interact with visual for putting sticky notes (work items) into time blocks for intended commitments.
  • Simplicity. Miro seems to recognize that it is a tool that people will gravitate to in order to make a task simpler. So it has kept itself simpler so that it doesn't alienate its primary users.
  • Versatility. There isn't a whole lot of predetermined directions a user must take. It is a tool that seems to be open for the user to create in the direction that feels most applicable to them.
  • Potentially identify your use cases that customers are using the tool for. Then, rather than templates that are defined by the "widgets" they contain, have templates that are setup up for your widely used processes. For instance, we use it for Agile Software PI Planning. But I have to make something from scratch to do that. But a template for that use case would be more beneficial than a template just pre-loaded with a specific widget and fancy doo-dads around it. A Kan-ban board (which I believe you already have) is a good example of this, so more things like that.
  • Improved work scheduling efficiency.
  • Improved communication of a timeline for completing work.
  • Improved the start to finish time of work completion.
It was very easy to integrate with our established Microsoft Teams stuff.
It has allowed us to have a visual of a discussion when we are not all co-located in a room with a whiteboard.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Would you buy Miro again?


Well suited for on-the-fly creative discussions around establishing processes or current states of a process. Applications where traditionally a visual representation isn't needed for the final delivery of a discussion. But the discussion itself would hugely benefit from a crude visual representation of the topic at hand that is easily modifiable.

Miro isn't great for a formal presentation. But that's okay. I don't think that should be its intention.
