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.

Let Us Introduce To You Our Brand New Mindomo Courses

Mind mapping is growing into a teaching method that you teachers heavily rely on. That’s because you have found the advantages of providing students with mind maps of their learning material: they understand the information better, and they learn it and recall it easily.

All over the world, from teaching Biology, Geography, Language Arts to Computer Science and Environmental Science, you are using Mindomo to work with your students in and outside the classroom. Moreover, your students have to create mind maps of their own to reinforce their learning and thinking skills.
Both you and your students’ efforts deserve our full support, so we created a new solution to ease your work with Mindomo and mind mapping.  So, let us introduce to you Mindomo Courses and how it will help you further with mind mapping:

  • Easy access to Mindomo:  students will easily access Mindomo and their mind map assignments.
  • Easy-to-create courses: setup a course within minutes where you encourage students to mind map on the subjects you are covering.
  • Auto-sharing of mind maps between you and your students: once students start completing their assignments, the mind maps they will be working on will be automatically shared with you.
  • Easy to assist students and to assess their performance: use the course’s clear overview to see how each student interacted within the course, whether he/she faced any problems with the assignment(s) and offer your guidance whenever it is needed.
  • Easy to provide students with learning materials: gather all the learning resources on the topic you are covering and invite students to access them as they complete their assignments.

You can give it a try as we speak. Just log into Mindomo and go to “Courses” in the top left corner of your dashboard. We will be glad to hear your impressions once you’ve tested it.

And since we just released this dedicated solution, we would like to offer 10 teacher subscriptions for free, for a 1-year period. One of these subscriptions can be yours, all you need to do is write a comment below and tell us how you plan to make the most of the subscription.

New Mindomo Integrations Are Now Available

Google Drive integration for safer, easier-to-create mind maps

By connecting your Mindomo account to Google Drive, your mind maps will be backed up and easy to reach from any PC, tablet or phone. Moreover, whenever you want to create and work on a new mind map, you can do it directly from your Google Drive account.

Keep your mind maps safe and within reach with Dropbox integration

If you are using Dropbox, you can connect your account to Mindomo and all your mind maps will be daily backed up to a folder on your Dropbox account. All we ask is your permission to access that particular folder, leaving the rest of your folders private.

Secure your mind maps with FTP integration

If backing up your mind maps with Google Drive or Dropbox doesn’t suit you, you can also choose to do the backup to an FTP account of your choice.

Activating your backups takes 3 easy steps: login to Mindomo, go to “More” in the upper right side and choose “Backup”.
Please take into consideration that these backup solutions are available only for our Premium users.

We’re cooking up something new. Want to join us?

Deeper understanding, fast learning, critical thinking, problem-solving. These are the most in-demand skills of the 21st century. Mind mapping is among the best techniques to develop and improve these skills.
Nevertheless, you can see its real benefits only if you use it efficiently, which proves rather hard especially for first-time users.
So, we challenged ourselves to make mind mapping easily accessible, engaging and useful for everyone. We think we found the solution, and we only need a bit of your help to wrap it up.

  • Are you a K-12 or higher-ed teacher who likes teaching with Mind Maps ? 
  • Are you a visual thinker who believes mind mapping is an efficient way of communicating visually?

We want to assist people in reaching their full potential. If you want to find out more about the details or join our initiative, please contact us at

 Let’s make a difference together!
