We are back with the third upgrade of this series: integrating the task functionality into normal mind maps. Use tasks to keep your information organized, set due dates for your projects, prioritize your work, set completion rates or assign them to your collaborators. You can now turn topics from your mind map into tasks (Ctrl+K) or manually insert a task subtopic to any topic you like (Alt+Shift+Enter) from the Insert panel. Checkboxes will be automatically added in front of the task topics; checking these off indicates that the task has been completed. If a topic has the option Set as Task checked off, all new subtopics will inherit it and will become subtasks. You can always remove the check mark to prevent newly added subtopics from turning into subtasks. A…

We recently updated our Microsoft Word (DOCX) export. Please see below how it works. 1. The central topic becomes the title of the exported document and will appear at the top with a bigger font size. Your main topics and subtopics will be listed in a headings hierarchy up until the 4th level. After the 4th level, all the subtopics will be listed as normal text with indentation. Notes are exported exactly as they are in the mind map (keeping their stylings such as bulleting, numbering, font size, and color). 2. Comments will appear on the right side of the document, in a column, each comment connected to its topic with a dotted line. The comments will also display the initials of the person who added it and the date…

We are continuously working to improve our tool, that’s why we are happy to let you know that we implemented another highly requested feature: exporting the comments from your Task Maps. However, for the time being, this functionality is available only with the Text File (.txt) and Microsoft Word (.rtf) export formats. When exported, the comments will appear right after the task: Let us know what you think in the Comments section below 🙂 Keep it smart, simple and creative! The Mindomo Team

For a lot of us, going on a business trip is “double trouble”, partly because preparing for this is unlike preparing for a family trip and partly because you need to get in shape for business meetings and presentations. In both cases, being well-prepared is the key, and it will give you that sense of confidence of having things under control. And how to get organized the right way, you might ask? We’ll, there are two things you should definitely consider if you want a solid business travel plan. Plan everything with time management in mind. This will make you focus on your trip’s priorities. Use concept maps for individual or even team brainstormings to put together all business-related to-dos.  Start from the core – your business trip, and enumerate…

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…
