Visual thinking board
I'm a visual thinker, and I couldn't function without a tool like this. I've tried them all and keep coming back to Miro.
It has all the flexibility I need to lay out my ideas, and progressively develop them. Plus, the community templates are amazingly useful and new contributions keep coming.
I am sometimes disappointed or unimpressed by the visual aesthetic aspect, but this is a very light annoyance.
Reasons for Choosing MiroGenerally, at some point I get annoyed at some missing feature, or I find myself reproducing a template from the Miro community.
Reasons for Switching to MiroI was lucky to get an educational licence as a PhD Candidate, which made the choice trivia.

Tracing paper and pen in a virtual environment
With remote working, collaborating on complex design related problems became much more difficult. Screen sharing with snapping images and marking up was a quick fix, however this was slow and a 1-way communication.
MIRO solved all of this and became the virtual equivalent of rolling out tracing paper and having a handful of people developing the design simultaneously.
I think that it would be useful to enhance the sketching experience further. If there could be a virtual tracing paper with variable opacity to contain (group) a series of sketches similar to a frame this would be useful. This is currently possible with multiple objects but it becomes unwieldy. This would also allow the development of a simple layer system.
Partial deletion of a hand drawn line would be really helpful.
(I have in mind some of the user-experience of the Procreate sketching iPad app)
I found MIRO intuitive with no training necessary. You can invite collaborators effortlessly with only browser access required. This has been transformational for me during remote working.
When boards become large, the download process can be a little slow and it sometimes trips up with downloading the content that is currently in the viewer's screen. This can easily be resolved by archiving and starting a new board.
Perhaps an option of local caching some content could be useful.

Well designed and easy to use
Intuitive. Collaboration is very easy. There are some excellant templates for business processes
Missing some engineering style templates. Lack of integration with Visio. No easy way to import Visio diagrams.
