"Ultimate MURAL fangirl"

What do you like best?

I love the integration with Post-It Plus. It's super easy to get real-life post it notes into MURAL without typing everything up. Just take a picture and it's uploaded. I also love how easy it is to collaborate virtually, even with people who don't have a MURAL login.

What do you dislike?

I wish that MURAL included simple flowchart tools like the ones in Draw.io. For example, I want to easily create flow arrows between things, and the current arrow doesn't have the same smart snap/angle like Draw.io.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used MURAL to: independently conduct analysis during an alpha launch for a product, facilitate a remote retrospective with a distributed design team, facilitate a remote subject-matter expert workshop about the gaps/pain points of the current state of an experience, create a customer journey map, record an Impact/Difficulty matrix from a LUMA session using the template, and record and analyze post it notes made during a live in-person stakeholder workshop. All of that is just in the last 3 months!

"Visual communication and collaboration"

What do you like best?

I use mural to organize and convey concepts on a global team. When key ideas risk getting lost in translation, I depend on MURAL to help align my co-workers and allow people to contribute to a project. I also love that MURAL is flexible - I have used the tool to organize events, create project plans, and host virtual workshops.

Their team also hosts fantastic webinars to make sure you get the most value from the tool. I've been inspired to use the tool in new ways.

What do you dislike?

There's a learning curve to using the tool, so you do need to introduce people to MURAL and get them comfortable before diving in with a team or group.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the "getting started" guides to make the most of the tool and get some tips about virtual collaboration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virtual collaboration - saving money on travel and still being able to have contribution among team members. Visual communication helps reduce confusion and align the team.

Thanks for letting us know!

"Usa Mural para organizar tus ideas."

What do you like best?

Me gusta que no haya restricciones en cuanto a la distribución de los objetos que vamos añadiendo. También me gusta que el mural se va guardando automáticamente a medida que lo modifiquemos, y podemos invitar a otros usuarios para así trabajar en grupo. Lo que más me gusta es que todo se cifra para preservar la privacidad. Otra ventaja es que tenemos la posibilidad de descargarnos una copia de seguridad de las pizarras en formato ZIP para poder restaurarla por si elimino las pizarras por error o hago cambios no deseables.

What do you dislike?

Mural nos deja mantener dos de estos murales virtuales con hasta cincuenta colaboradores de forma gratuita, aunque hay planes de pago a partir de 12 euros mensuales que nos dejan gestionar de 20 a infinitas pizarras según nuestras necesidades, por lo que ofrece es un precio un poco caro. También deberían añadir una demo para poder saber utilizar Mural porque al principio puede ser un poco confuso porque la aplicación es muy poco intuitiva. También suele ir un poco lenta la aplicación en dispositivos antiguos, esto sobretodo ocurre al añadir nuevos elementos y al modificarlos. Por todo lo demás es una aplicación muy completa y útil que no me ha dado ningún fallo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una de las mejores herramientas que puedes utilizar. No necesitas descargar ningún software sólo necesitas utilizar un navegador web con conexión a Internet. Lo puedes utilizar en todos tus dispositivos incluso lo puedes utilizar en los dispositivos móviles utilizando su app. Además puedes utilizar el periodo gratuito que ofrecen para saber si cubre tus necesidades este programa !!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mural es una herramienta ideal para trabajar con mis compañeros y plantear proyectos colaborativos donde todos puedan participar y aportar sus ideas. Puede ser de gran utilidad tanto a la hora de organizar los equipos, como a la hora de presentar los trabajos. Algunos proyectos que puedes llevar a cabo son biografías ilustradas de escritores o personajes históricos, herbarios digitales, guiones de cortometrajes u obras de teatro de nueva creación. Ya sea para organizar un proyecto entero o para hacer un simple brainstorming, esta puede ser una herramienta a considerar.

"Helps me create layouts for video ideas"

What do you like best?

I love the mood board layout. I utilize it to create different videos for our website. By being able to place photos into specific categories, I can create videos for certain purposes (holidays, recent events, introductory vids,etc).

What do you dislike?

It would be great if I could take the mood board layouts and then turn them into videos. But just having the ability to create layouts before I turn them into videos is helpful

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a fantastic tool! So many uses for any business! I'm still learning what it has to offer each day! I highly recommend using this tool!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made making videos for our website much smoother and they look even better! It is helpful to have the ability to layout all photos before creating a video.

I can also share current projects with other users and they can add to it or change it, that is very helpful. There has been a lot less "I'll send you those pics" because they can just quickly and easily add it to the layout/project.

"Working with collaborative roles"

What do you like best?

I like that MURAL allows to unify the work team and entrust a specific role to each member of the team, in this way all contribute equally to the project in process. The use of templates for each project or occasion makes the whole process much more creative and unique. The advantage of adhesive notes that update automatically is unbreakable, it is a fantastic tool; all this contributes to have a fast software, easy to use and configure, besides being true and efficient in all its functions.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning it can be a bit complicated to understand, it is necessary for an introductory demo in this way when starting to use the software you can start using it almost instantaneously with all the basic knowledge. The rest has worked magnificently and without problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to join your work team and integrate them to do a better job, I recommend that you use MURAL and that you exploit all the creative and professional potential of each member of your work group.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Facilitates communication and teamwork, allows the progress of projects and the integration of all in a simple way in which each member joins to contribute their own ideas. So we move faster at work and everything becomes much simpler.

"Fantastic tool for remote workshops"

What do you like best?

The ability to import images and use software like the Post-It Plus made MURAL the perfect platform for remote and in-person teams to share answers and collaborate. We used the Post-It Plus app to take all of the answers from the physical attendees and post them on the MURAL board. We displayed the MURAL board on a TV so all teams could view each other’s answers and discuss their findings.

What do you dislike?

There were a few bugs when zooming, causing the mini-map on the bottom right to disappear. Using Cmd – or + on Mac worked most of the time, but it caused issues here and there. Board exports are sent as a link in an email when it would be easier to download directly to your computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into Post-it Plus or MURAL Scan as a great way to integrate physical post-its with the digital ones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our UX team needed to conduct workshops with our stakeholders, and was required to accommodate remote participants. MURAL allowed both in-person and remote teams to share answers and collaborate effectively. Keeping remote participants engaged is a challenge, and MURAL made it possible.

"Mural has allowed us to evolve the way we work"

What do you like best?

My team and I regularly design and lead design thinking workshops and design sprints. This tool as allowed us to offer these to teams who cannot travel to one physical location. We've recreated the "whiteboard in a conference room" effect. My favorite feature is the voting tools - it's allowed us to help teams make lighting fast decisions that would actually take longer in person.

What do you dislike?

The sketching with apple pencil and iPad pro is not quite there yet, but improving.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have an actual project you can test it out against and if you don't know where to begin, just try to recreate everything you would do if you and the team were in the same conference room.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

redesigning the intake process for an operations team, designing a live online chat experience, redesigning the recruiting experience, redesigning an audit team's processes, redesigning the processes for sharing data insights, building an online knowledge sharing community and many more...

We engage at different stages of projects. Depending on the situation, we have helped teams understand their business and user problems, ideate solutions against known problems or test and validate solutions.

"Great for virtual collaboration (consulting and client work)"

What do you like best?

I’m a big fan of the voting functionality which helps the team quickly prioritize or narrow down options. Another favorite is the built-in frameworks which are great accelerators when I’m building a new mural for a meeting. I love the integration with LUMA so I can easily drag and drop those templates into my MURAL.

When I use MURAL, I notice that team members are much more engaged because they have a clear role and contribution to make to the meeting rather than passively watching someone else edit content or take notes.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve the first time people are on it and it can be a bit clunky at times. For example, clicking into elements to edit them sometimes drops an unwanted sticky note into the mural.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I’ve prepared murals for team ice breakers when a new team is forming – each team member can add pictures and answer questions to introduce themselves in a more dynamic and memorable way. I’ve used it for brainstorming sessions where all team members simultaneously capture their point of view, quickly spotting similarities and differences.

"Use it remotely or use it in-person!"

What do you like best?

Mural nails the balance of flexibility and structure for collaborating on design projects while involving people from all across the company. You can do just about anything you want in there, but you can give it form and function too. Oh, and the real-time piece.

What do you dislike?

Some people have a hard time learning how to fly around the canvas. Some people even struggle just to gain access to a shared mural. Where I feel totally natural using Mural with ease, they have a hard time getting into it because they don't know how to get around easily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you learn how to easily pan and zoom before you try anything else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have teams of people from all over the world who need to work together, sometimes at the same time. Mural enables us to think together, visually and eliminates the guessing games.

"Idea Management "

What do you like best?

MURAL really appeals to the designer in me (and was first shared with me by our design team). It’s easy to upload images, to create “post its” for tracking, and to share with others collaboratively.

What do you dislike?

Fairly slow interface; adding new elements is a bit of a pain at times, and I've had to partition some elements across multiple MURALs just for the sake of functionality. I also feel like the zoom function is a little intractable at times. I like the product from an entry-level user perspective, but feel relatively little desire to learn more abou tit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly we’ve used it to keep track of CX problems, which we then share with the design and system teams (many of whom are remote). It makes for easier sharing than, say, a spreadsheet or a Google doc. Categorization is supported through multiple dimensions, and is pretty easy to enforce.

"Using MURAL will change the way any team approaches collaboration, idea generation, and alignment"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the application. Training is nice but it is not required. MURAL has a feature set that does not overwhelm its users and is powerful enough to be used for facilitation of very large workshops.

What do you dislike?

The MURAL application works best on Chrome and the user experience for Microsoft browsers is steadily improving but not as good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration with remote teams; collaboration with local teams; visualizes thinking; 50% less time is needed to document our workshops; energizes stand ups; strategic planning and goals setting; Requirements specifications; project alignment;

"Killer Way To Digitize Design Sprints"

What do you like best?

It's extremely free form and easy to get ideas onto a canvas quickly. It accepts multiple inputs (even websites) via drag and drop. Group voting is a great feature too (especially for remote teams).

What do you dislike?

It's quite expensive and they don't have a free version. Larger teams may have to lobby to get it paid for. It's totally worth it if the team uses it though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you'd start or end any part of your process with post-it notes on a whiteboard, Mural is the digital replica of that thought. On top of that, it's a great way to organize ideas, features, research, competitors, etc. visually. Plus, group voting tools help your team prioritize all of these things with ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collecting everything from research and input to ideas all in one place is massively helpful in ensuring everyone on the team has access to everything they need from day one. Questions of where "X" is and the lack of information intake can derail a project. Mural knocks all of that out at the very beginning.

Being able to track, sort and prioritize things just as you would on a whiteboard is absolutely killer.

"Vital for promoting remote collaboration and free thinking "

What do you like best?

The flexibility of the tool is unlike any other; it's seamless at doing whatever you want it to do! I love that we can adapt all kinds of frameworks for remote meetings amongst our distributed workforce and still feel like we are all in the same room.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult sometimes to onboard new users into MURAL and get them familiar with the toolset. I also wish that the alignment guides worked better sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just explore all of the ways that you can use it upfront. Again, it's an EXTREMELY flexible tool, so it has a ton of power for literally every corner of your business, but it's kind of up to you to figure out how you can best maximize its value. I would encourage everyone to start off with just playing with the tool at first, and make sure that you give others a chance to play around with it BEFORE you actually have a meeting or anything, so as to reduce technical hiccups and discomfort.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using MURAL across the board, from the Executive level down to entry level employees for anything from facilitating strategic vision meetings, to interdisciplinary collaboration workshops, to moderated user research and design brainstorming. MURAL makes it possible for our distributed workforce to collaborate effectively with one another across the country, saving hugely on travel and logistical costs for in-person meetings.

"Mural is a great tool for remote collaboration"

What do you like best?

We use Mural to get people from different locations out of the stale conference call atmosphere and into a collaborative, visual space. It helps us think more visually and analytically and document ideas much faster than in a normal conference call. It also helps us get out of powerpoint in order to be able to critique and edit. We also share and analyze user research findings in Mural and this is a great way to allow all user research observers to share their perspective on what they saw.

What do you dislike?

It can be a little hard for brand new people to learn to use the tool quickly enough to feel comfortable in a meeting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improves collaborative culture, speeds up complex problem solving, reduces travel cost

"Gran ayuda"

What do you like best?

Ayuda al equipo a priorizar rápidamente o restringir las opciones. Los marcos integrados son excelentes aceleradores cuando tienes un nuevo mural para una reunión. Se pueden fácilmente las plantillas en mi MURAL.

What do you dislike?

Hay que proporcionar algo de aprendizaje la primera vez que la gente participa porque les ha resultado complicado algunas veces.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hemos preparado murales con un nuevo equipo: cada miembro puede agregar imágenes y responder preguntas para presentarse de una manera más dinámica y memorable.

"Simple, clean and worth it."

What do you like best?

Like how easy it is to bring together ideas with the team. The auto alignment on sticky notes is a little perk that I enjoy over other similar products out there.

Love the templates for different projects (although I wish you could edit every aspect of a template. Some areas seem to be permanently locked and can't be updated.)

What do you dislike?

Price per seat.

No clear way to auto align or adjust multiple pieces on a given mural board.

Limitations to board size.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplifying projects, gathering team and client feedback,

"A godsend for a virtual work environment"

What do you like best?

It's now difficult to think of how we might collect and share ideas virtually without MURAL.

What do you dislike?

Add limited functionality free membership available rather than restricting to 1 month trials.

Would love to have the option to engage a broader body of people on an ongoing basis rather than restricted by the # of user seats.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improving the consumer's experience is a continuous process therefore frequent engagement with a broad body of colleagues is critical. Rather than being restricted by trying to co-locate physically to push through problems, MURAL has enabled us to continue momentum even when we are apart.
