Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is a very versatile tool used for all processes in product design
as well as project management / team organization. Use cases include
working alone to sketch out things; together to develop a better, shared
understanding; in presentations to pitch or explain concepts; and as a
tool to support project management artifacts like SCRUM meetings. Some
boards are frozen as a source of knowledge, others are being worked on
continously.
  • huge library of tools/templates
  • very good collaborative working experience
  • usful tooling for different use cases like presentations and votings
  • performance improvements for moving shapes with enabled alignment
  • option to temporarily"hide" stickies from view for the other editors (like Metro Retro)
  • make the (windows) desktop app a first class citizen
  • most of the work from the concept to a concrete product has been worked out in or instrumented by Miro
  • Miro has been a vital part of our SCRUM processes enabling the team to work more efficiently
  • In hindsight there was quite some time spent on going through old Miro boards to find stuff or explicitly mark outdated info
I should skip this, but the survey didn't let me.
Our team is working fully remote and Miro is helping us as the main substitue for whiteboards and similar.

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

Most good scenarios are related to actually working on stuff - sketching, collaboratively creating, supporting meetings. The less appropriate stuff always happens afterwards: finding stuff (especially across multiple boards), figuring out whether what you found is the the most recent version of information, and similar. In general Miro tends to become a archive of stuff, due to it's central position in the workflows, but it's not suited to be an archive.
