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.

  1. layers

    Incorporate the possibility of layers.

    E.g. the same root node could have different children on different layers. [They could remain visible by having different levels of transparency (probably a max of 3 layers for clarity here?)] Thus the same root node could be explored in different contexts represented by the layers themselves.

    One example (obviously users can create their own use-metaphors) might be that the root node represents a 'cause' with child nodes representing 'effects'. Different layers could show the effects of the root node "cause", given differing contexts- i.e. the cause has different effects in differing environments. However -…

  2. Ability to publish a map in a public directory

    I'm following up onto http://mindmup.uservoice.com/forums/200447-what-should-we-focus-on-next-/suggestions/3800017-searching-browsing-through-public-mind-maps

    It would be great to be able to share publicly some maps. In the same way a drive document can be private, shared (anyone with the link), or public (searcheable and browseable).

    When a map is made publicly available, a title and tags could be added, along with other metadata (author nick name, last modif date, creation date).

    The public directory(ies) would be browseable by tags, last modification date, title, or words within the maps. Ideally the directory would be indexed by search engines, and maps would be indexed along.

    E.g. 'impact map mindmup" on…

  3. Expand file submenu to match recent filename size

    If the initial node has text too long when clicking on File the "X" is not on the same line as the text.

  4. Create Systems mapping tool

    A big challenge in design is the impact of unintended consequences. Systems mapping with causal feedback loops help you see the impacts of a system in one space. Your tool is very close to this- if you add causal system loops and a few other systems thinking/mapping tools, you would have the best software in the world for this.

  5. collaboration users have own identity by color of text to see who suggest what or makes changes.

    When making changes or suggestions on a map it would be nice to know who suggested ideas or change a line so owner can make choice of corrections.

  7. Insert Tab

    I would appreciate an insert tab where I can add features to my map that I can not access in Mindmup, but can elsewhere. I would especially appreciate being able to insert a graph or table from a spreadsheet.

    Example of an Insert Tab

    Insert Tab
    -From Google Drive
    **
    -Task (for a to-do list)
    -Image
    -From file
    -Google Image search

    **
    -Take you to your Google Drive; select document; select portion of doc. to insert into Mindmup)
    -Allow changes made to portion of selected document to change across both Drive and Mindmup

  8. Export links to Freemind.

    Currently node links export to Freemind as text. (Also, the HTML tags are not closed.) Please fix!

  9. Support OPML import and export

    This feature request (from someone else) was closed before, but resubmitting as requested. This would make MindMup an attractive alternative to MindNode.

  10. Smoother transitions while editing multiple existing attachments.

    To edit multiple attachments, the smoothest process seems to be:

    1) Select node
    2) Press A
    3) Click edit button (don't take hand off mouse for ctrl+enter)
    4) Use mouse to place cursor
    5) Move mouse hand to keyboard to work
    6) ctrl+enter to save (usually multiple times because the esc key is a "delete everything instantly forever" button at this point)
    7) hit esc and begin the process again

    I think a better process would go something like this:

    1) Click paperclip on node: attachment opens, already in edit mode, cursor position saved from last time
    2) Move mouse…

  12. Integrate ge.tt so that one can upload and link to files in the comments of a Knot

    Adding files (word files, excel, etc.) to branches is very useful. It would be great to be able to do so in the comments part. One can currently go to e.g. ge.tt upload the file and then paste the url. Doing this faster through direct integration with ge.tt would be huge. :-)

  13. Allow similar version control integration to bitbucket accounts

    WHY: bitbucket is a great alternative (especially for some side projects with free private repos!) to github.

  14. Alternative key bindings

    I'd like to be able to define my own key bindings.
    I want to use vi-like hjkl to move around but this would also enable freemind/freeplane key bindings

  15. Connection measurement (strength, length, value)

    If switched on, the user will be able to give each connection a value, and depending on that value, the connection line will be longer or shorter. This will enable contextual connections: for example, if the mindmap captures project dependencies, those lines will be used to show the length of time that the child of a node will take to be completed.

  16. Add a '?' hotkey that brings up a help popup, similar to GMail

    In GMail one gets a great popup w/ all of the hotkeys by pressing '?'. It's a great way to lookup a hotkey without taking your hands from the keyboard

  18. Zooming via mouse-wheel (touch-pad scroll)

    Keyboard junkies will thank you for Z and Shift+Z, but most natural / popular and fast way of zooming "around maps" is via mouse-wheel.
    It might interfere with touch-pad scroll/pan, but if you implement both - there will happy users instead of frustrated ones.
