Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is a key tool in our team for generating ideas, building architectures and collaborative workshops. From an engineering perspective we use Miro to build out diagrams for different architectures and figure out how different pieces of architecture and code will work together - it has really smooth object editing which makes building these together really easy. For workshops it's a great tool to allow everyone to get their thoughts down in an organised fashion and generate interesting discussions around certain topics.
  • Works smoothly even with 10+ users on the same board
  • Object creation and editing is very simple and responsive
  • Frames feature is great for making a unique looking presentation
  • I think the board manager could be better - is hard to find the board you were working on if you have lots of different ones
  • Feel like I create new boards all the time, there could be a feature to help segment boards in a better manner
  • Has sped up time from architecture to creating tickets
  • Has made workshops more interactive and democratised
  • Has helped me generate ideas much faster
It has helped people collaborate remotely very effectively. During COVID collaboration was very difficult as we got used to remote working but Miro helped massively with this, and we continued to use it as remote working became the norm. Now we can have as effective workshops as in-person workshops even if not everyone can physically attend a session.

I found MURAL very clunky in comparison to Miro. The design was nowhere near as friendly and the transitions did not seem as smooth. Miro had a real collaborative feel to it whereas MURAL seems a bit more individual. Overall, Miro is a cleaner and better thought-out product.
I think Miro is a great tool for workshopping ideas and coming up with a solution. Whoever is running the workshop can do some pre-prep on the board with ideas and discussion points, and then the attendees can join and add to this in a collaborative and visual way which is very powerful.

It is also great for things like retrospectives where all members of the team can get their points down and be heard in the call to express any important thoughts or concerns.
