What should we focus on next?

MindMup is community driven, so we’ll work on what our users want the most. For best results, please:
- Formulate ideas as work objectives (explain why, not just what/how). For example, ‘collaborate with friends remotely’ is much better than asking for ‘google realtime v2.0 integration’
- Do not submit stuff anonymously. We want to discuss your proposal with you if it gets votes, and anonymous submissions don’t allow us to do that. Ideas submitted anonymously will most likely be closed.

What would you like to be able to do?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Write text on links between nodes

    Allow to write text on connections/links between two nodes (e.g. "implicates", "caused by", etc.)

    • nodes around parent node, instead of just on one side

      It's annoying all the children nodes are on one side of the parent nodes. Ideally nodes are around the parent node for better visualisation when revising.

      • Add numbers to nodes of the same level (like numbered bullets in a Word document)

        Add an option to add numbers to all sub nodes of a node, so they re-number when the node is moved. Possibly extend this to all nodes in the mup.

        In the example below, if '2. Another Tree' is moved up, it becomes '1. Another Tree'. If '1.2. branch b' is moved up it becomes '1.1. branch b', and the twigs/leaf a become 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 & 1.1.2.1

        Forest
        1. Tree
        1.1. Branch a
        1.2. Branch b
        1.2.1. Twig a
        1.2.2. Twig b
        1.2.2.1. Leaf a
        2. Another Tree

        • Add multiple documents as attachments to nodes

          Add multiple documents as attachments to a node. Frequently there are documents supporting the information in the node, it would be great to attach the documents OR at minimum add a google docs link to a folder where the documents are stored.

            • User-specific node colour outline for collaboration

              I've been using MindMup for collaborating with people on breaking down large thorny problems into smaller sub-problems while showing reasoning steps.

              Here are two examples of this (which require MindMup 2.0):
              https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3e4kGv2b1RAUklFVFNKdllVd2M
              https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3e4kGv2b1RAakJsaUgyNExPR28

              I would like assign a node-outline colour for users so I can keep track of who is making what recommendations. That way if I want clarification on a line of reasoning I can communicate with them directly. At this point this is performed manually by assigning the person a node colour and then getting them to apply that colour to each node they write. This is a…

              • I came across another program where you can input freestyle several concepts and do the relationships later.

                Freestype inputs and establishing sibling, child relationships later. This has the advantage of not blocking the free thinking side of the brain interrupted by the logical side.

                • Move notes from node to node

                  Can you add the ability to click the note icon and then drag and drop it onto another node. Currently moving notes is done by duplicating the note and deleting the old one. It takes a lot longer.

                  Optionally make a copy (leave the original note in place when dragging and dropping)

                  • Progress - Ability to assign tasks to people

                    The ability to have a list of people and then assign tasks to those people.
                    Then have a way to list or show the tasks assigned to a specific person.
                    This could be added to Measurements with the ability to add a text field that only shows on the last end nodes as you would not want any calculation.
                    You could then download to a spreadsheet as well.
                    Then you would need a way to list only the nodes with a particular person assigned but this is not essential.

                      mindmup is dependent on a desktop and or a laptop but when your a student on the go and needs something light to carry such as a tablet or a smartphone

                      when i open mindmup on a tablet and or smartphone thru mindmup website and i try to move the screen up and down, it accidentally moves the nodes to a different position making it a little annoying to put them back in the correct place when i get home on a desktop or a laptop.

                      • Add "twin" nodes.

                        Provide ability to add nodes which are connected or touching each other, "twins". This would be different from siblings as each sibling is separated from each other yet each twin can branch off with individual child nodes just like siblings. Twin nodes can better illustrate multiple thoughts or processes which are connected together or share common traits other than a parent thought.

                              Currently MindMup 2.0 exports text to SVG as parths, not as text. This means that the text in the SVG file cannot be selected or edited as text. Please export text as real text to SVG (not paths), or at least add the option to do so.

                              • keep first child node on the right (aka map theme for "folder-like" hierarchy)

                                It would über helpful to have a map theme where the first child node stays on the right of its parent.

                                Today, the first child node is on the right but as soon as you add a sibling, the first node goes up which is not what I want. I really want the first node to stick on the right of the parent (on an imaginary horizontal line) and its other siblings to go down.

                                The idea is to have a "folder like" view that you can easily fold/unfold.

                                    I like to use mind maps for Objective Based planning because it allows the teams to determine the required logic behind what needs to take place. This is often a very manual job using a team and a planning wall. Mindmud has most of the required capability such as the ability to add multiple measures to a node (duration, resources, cost, etc...)

                                    What would be required is the addition of linking a measure to a time scale, the ability to constrain a node to a particular spot and the linked notes build from that point on, strait lines that link…

                                    • Implement costs cells (ex 'measurements'), times cells and Gantt chart generation ?

                                      Hello, to be able to write some cells for costs measurements (with an automatic total) and some times cells to have Gantt chart generation could improve this amazing and easy tool to the top of what I need.
                                      Don't you ?

                                        • Generate Gantt charts with dates i/o and costs for common project tasks management

                                          To clic a button to generate Gantt charts with noted dates (begin & end) and costs calculation for common project tasks management could be a very good improvement to MindMup, you don't think so ?
                                          Also of course if the dates can also be linked to Google Agenda in the same time, it could be an heaven !
