Miro Overview

Mind mapping suddenly just got better with Miro. Introducing an innovative & interactive method to build workflows, diagrammatic representations of your ideas & live brainstorming. Collate, categorise & order your ideas into a unified platform & seek inputs from other team members for effective collaboration. Plan projects to manage, draw out infrastructural details, mark up blueprints, chart & produce sales cum marketing protocol. Be it a storyline, agile planning, design iteration, utilise the virtual whiteboard for vast visual interface support. Add comments, build a canvas, discuss via videoconferencing or chats, presentations, export in high fidelity & apply various themes.

Additionally, auto-arrange, create links, use keyboard shortcuts to save time, embed your maps on external sites, preset configured templates & hotkeys to improve efficiency. Publish, share & distribute content securely, design material with various styles & use integrations for your frames. Implement images & files whilst digitising any notes you make. Use this to teach or draw out affinity or customer journey maps & Kanban boards. Cluster references, tag members & track retrospective progress visibly with ease as well as flexibility. Their API developer program enables data syncing, SDK & move plus customise widgets for that extra element of personalisation.

Miro’s concept is simple & the process is even easier:

1. Click or tap on board to create a node to start a concept
2. Add branches that extend from this central idea & create child nodes by adding them
3. Colour themes segment ideas & the easy drag & drop mechanism mobilises objects

There are issues with Miro though, including:

  • Complex interface functionality with limited featured options in case of reversing actions
  • Less automation & more manual intervention is required when duplicating work
  • Lack of ergonomics makes it difficult to identify how multiple projects are coming along

Apart from these niggles, Miro remains a great platform to manage & plan your projects with many salient features.
