Introducing Task Mind Maps

Many of you have been asking us the same question about the tasks in your maps: ‘will I get an email notification?’ That’s how we realized that you rely on Mindomo to help you follow up to-dos and get things done. So, we developed a new type of mind map to meet your task management needs. Here’s what you’ll get if you start using our task maps:

  • Flexible task management. Just drag and drop tasks to reorganize them from one list to another.
  • Tasks and subtasks are organized hierarchically. This gives you a clear picture of all tasks and their priority.
  • Both you and your collaborators receive email notifications when tasks are completed or updated.
  • You can use the drill-down feature to temporarily hide some of the information to focus on a certain task list.
  • You can quickly set deadlines and assign tasks to your collaborators.
  • You can expand and collapse information to get a detailed or bird’s eye view of your work.
  • Wider, uncluttered map canvas will give you more space for your data.

A task map is not just for tracking task ideas, it’s the central spot for organizing and monitoring your to-dos.
Like always, we’re looking forward to your feedback. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this new functionality, feel free to share them in the comments section below.

Kick-Start 2015 By Increasing Your Productivity

Happy 2015, everyone! We hope you enjoyed your winter holidays, we sure did. Nevertheless, time flies, and now we find ourselves getting back into work mode.
Here’s our recipe to keep our high spirits and start the year fresh:

– we begin by kicking off our 2015 goals. We already went through our future projects and started assigning tasks within the team.

– organizing and structuring our January activities

– joining a book challenge that we hope will stimulate us even more in our work. Naturally, we’ll start with a book on project management. This book just might be a real helper for those who work on personal or professional projects: teachers, planners, parents, executive leaders, entrepreneurs, business analysts, and people who want to become more productive at work.
Apart from its insights on efficient time management and thoughtful production, the book has an easy-to-follow style, and it also shows you how to use mind mapping to structure your management activities.

– last but not least, we’ll have lots of cups of hot cocoa and share some holiday funny stories.

This is how our first week at the office looks like. What’s your secret to a productive, fresh start in 2015?

Give An Edge To Mind Mapping With Mindomo Project

Feeling the need of improvement and being eager to explore new sights are both in our human nature. You might be satisfied with your organizational skills and the way you bridge your daily activities. You might feel that our mind mapping tool serves you well, in which case we are glad. Then again, our latest extension gives you the reasons to feel more than comfortable with the change:

 

Mindomo Project covers for all the necessary means to do your work

Mindomo Project 01You are probably used to dividing concepts, processes, action plans into relevant topics and subtopics, in order to improve their structure, their better understanding.

But what if you could break down processes and plans into tasks and assign them to the right people? What if you could monitor the way things develop and, in the meantime, engage in the team or client discussions that can provide you fresh ideas and solutions? Not to mention the fact that you can add images, links, documents and mind maps which are valuable for your work.

With its easy-to-use menu, Mindomo Project enables you to do all of this, simplifying the job and improving your coordination.

 

Get a clear overview of all your project documents

 

Mindomo Project 02
There is so much variety when it comes to the type of project you can work on, but all projects have contributory documents. The more complex the project gets, the more documents you have. Using Mindomo Project you will easily access all the documents in the project at any time. Moreover, you can easily find them thanks to their chronological order.

 

Be in control of your work

 

Mindomo Project 03

Ensuring comfort while you work on your assignments? We seem to cover our share. Mindomo Project sends you e-mail notifications to keep you up-to-date with all your new tasks. So, do try the comfort of not having to worry about missing tasks or constantly checking for updates.

 

Start your work in shape

 

Mindomo Project 04

No, we won’t live stream any morning yoga class . But we thought a daily digest of what your team had done in the previous day would help. Therefore, each day at 8 AM, Mindomo Project will send you an update on your project development and the team members who worked on the tasks.

You will be able to see how many of the tasks have been completed; whether new tasks have been added; all the comments and all the attached documents.

 

Keep an eye on who did what

 

Mindomo Project 05

You could be working on multiple projects at the same time, or you might want to take a break from work and just relax for a few days. In both cases, catching up will be as easy as it gets. All you have to do is browse through Mindomo Project‘s history.

It will be as you have been there step by step; all the daily changes that were made will be displayed: created, assigned and completed tasks, comments, corrections, uploads, and the people who made these changes.

 

Give value to your work by using Mind Maps

 

Mindomo Project 06

There are some chances you have to deal with rather complicated issues during your projects. If you are developing a project for business use, the chances grow further more. We have spoken in our last post about the advantage of associating your tasks with visual representations for higher recognition and a better understanding.

Using Mindomo Mind Maps in order to easily frame and clarify complex tasks might just be the best idea. While brainstorming for ideas, you will branch out from the central issues into solutions.

 

Share simultaneously all your Mind Maps in the project

 

Mindomo Project 07

More on mind mapping: Mindomo Project stores all brainstorming ideas and visual representations of complex tasks in one place. You will be able to see who attached the maps and when; accessing and sharing them will become easy and efficient.

 

Easily attach your documents by using Google Drive and Dropbox

 

Mindomo Project 08

While using Mindomo Project you will notice the effortless attachment of documents either from your personal PC, or by using Google Drive and Dropbox. Since sharing is one of the essential concepts of our extension, giving access to your documents both to team members and clients will be a piece of cake.

 

In case you missed our blog posts in this last couple of months, now you know what we were up to. Just like you, we occasionally feel the need to level up. The last time we had this drive we started working on this powerful extension that aims to get you more productive. So, start using that “Projects” button on the dashboard or create a fresh account to give it a shot.

Keep in mind that we’d love hearing from you as often as possible. So, whether you want to share your good thoughts, or you somehow stumbled upon some issues while using Mindomo Project, you know where to find us!
