Overall Satisfaction with Miro

My team uses Miro every week in refinement to break down large bodies of work and document requirements and open questions. We've also started using it to do wireframes and design reviews that help to get all team members on the same page when we are working in a distributed way.

Pros

  • Live editing by multiple users.
  • Integrates well with Jira.
  • Embed live links to documents.

Cons

  • Ability to do calculations within the app.
  • Locking/Editing templates.
  • Additional integrations with other software.
  • Improved productivity.
  • Increased alignment within squad.
  • Better engagement in meetings.
The integration with Jira was very simple and allows for updates or creation within Miro or Jira. Now, it's as simple as copying and pasting the Jira URL to add a ticket in Miro.
The majority of my team is distributed, and this has allowed for a dynamic way for us to interact in meetings. I've seen active participation in discussions increase, and it allows everyone to engage asynchronously in a way that's easy to follow.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro is great for being a virtual whiteboard with light integrations and a suite of templates to use. It's easy to see who's actively working on a page, direct focus to a particular location on a page (through cursor location or automatically), and is a very accessible tool for technical and non-technical users. If you're looking for any sort of guided process where you just enter information and the view is automatically built, this is not the tool for that.
