We are back with a series of upgrades to our tool, one of which is reorganizing our Multimedia panel from the left toolbar. Our existing Multimedia panel has been split into three specialized panels: one for images, one for videos and one for audio files.

Use them to quickly add multimedia resources to your topics, without the hassle of navigating through a complex menu.

The new design even comes with a bonus: you can now add an audio file on the same topic where you already have an image/video. You can find the audio file under the “play” icon. The videos and images added to a topic are still interchangeable (the video replaces the image previously added to your topic and vice-versa).

Image panel

Attach images to your mind map in a variety of ways:

  1. Add a URL that redirects you to the image’s location on the web
  2. Upload images from your computer/Google Drive/Dropbox (Drag & Drop or Browse)
  3. Search for images on the web
  4. List of images previously uploaded to your Mindomo account (it only shows images, the uploaded video/audio files are now located on their own panels)
  5. Select an image from our gallery

This panel also comes with something new: progressive loading of the images previously uploaded to your account.

Your uploaded images can be found under the Attach Uploaded tab. If you have many uploaded images, they will become visible gradually, as you scroll down the list. Click on any image to add it to your topic.

Video and audio panels

You can add video links to your topics, attach videos from your computer/Google Drive/Dropbox, add them from YouTube/Vimeo or from the list of videos already uploaded to your account:

Besides adding audio links to your topics, attaching audio files from your computer/Google Drive/Dropbox or browsing through the list of previously uploaded audio files, you can also use our Sound Recorder button to add your own audio notes to the mind map.

Click on the icon, give permission to the browser to access your microphone and then click on Record. You can then stop the recording, play it or change its name.

Comments panel redesigned

The Comments panel has a new structure and it was moved under the context menu of your topics:

Here you can vote the topic (replacing the Like/Dislike buttons), assign it to someone, set its due date or add multiple files (images, documents, videos, audio files or URLs) from your computer/Google Drive/Dropbox to it.

Another novelty is being able to notify someone by email about your newly added comment. Choose People from the drop-down menu.

Any file attached through the comments panel will appear as a resource to your topic. Click on the Attachments icon to see a preview of all the files belonging to the topic. Click on each file to open it in full-size view.

The Task Info panel was also added to the context menu of your topics, as a result of having recently merged the task functionality into mind maps. But this is something we will soon give you more details about.

Please give these features a try and let us know what you think in the Comments section below.

Keep it smart, simple and creative!

    My organization uses accessibility tools like Read&Write for Google Chrome for features like speech-to-text. While Mindomo is a great mind-mapping tool, it is frustrating that there is no way to interface accessibility with Mindomo.
    In the older toolbar, I was able to direct people to use accessibility in the Notes field, then copy and paste into a subtopic bubble on the map. Unfortunately Mindomo removed the Notes tool with this new update!
    Are there any plans to have accessibility a priority for students who may struggle with writing to get their ideas onto a mind map?

    • Hello Marcus,
      and thank you for reaching out to us, we really appreciate it.
      Our Comments panel was indeed integrated into the context menu of your topics, but our Notes panel is still available and can be easily used with the Read&Write extension.
      I will make sure to also follow up with an email with further details.

  4. Thanks, this is great!

    When is images coming to comments and notes? (You got videos, math formulas and links – and audio notes, but why not also images?)

    • Hello Torgrim, and thank you for your feedback.
      Actually, you can add images on the Comments panel, from your computer/Dropbox/Google Drive, if you click on the attachment icon (the “paper clip” icon), on the lower right side of your comment box. The added images will appear as resources to your topic (please see the last 2 screenshots on the blog post).
      Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.
