Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is such a flexible tool that is used for many cases across the business, from creating architecture diagrams, planning work and creating timelines, white-boarding ideas, gathering feedback, and creating project debrief or retrospectives.

Pros

  • Ideation
  • Feedback gathering.
  • Meeting management.

Cons

  • User interface when managing sharing permissions on a board.
  • Helped decision making by collaborating in white-boarding scenarios (time saving).
  • Supported cross-team collaboration to highlight team dependencies and reduce the risk of being blocked from delivering work ahead of time.
  • Create quick notes on designs or feedback to improve the product rather than spending more time documenting in a more traditional way (Word, Google Docs, Sheets, etc).
The Jira card integration is good; it would be good to be more customizable to show more information in Miro, such as statuses, creators, assignees, etc.
Miro is very easy to use and collaborate with, especially architecting tech products. Getting all team input and design has helped in building better products for our users. As Miro is easy to share, it's easy for those not in a direct meeting (due to timezone non-alignment) can see and edit the whiteboard and still collaborate async.

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro works well for retrospectives and voting on popular issues and actions. It's easy to use, and for those not familiar with the tool, it's easy to pick up and collaborate with. It's great to use for fun drawing and social games due to its ease of use and hide, reveal functionality which we used recently for a team game. Using Miro as a project planner can be more tricky because of its flexibility, and creating tables with content and editing them can be problematic (over a more traditional project planning tool). It also is not great at capturing and following up on actions - but if this were important, I'd use a different tool for this.
