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. Free dragging

    The child can be anywhere not exactly beside the parent, I can drag it far or close. This allows me to shape the mind map as i see fit.
    Thanks

  2. move nodes where I want

    I would simply like to have enough control to move the nodes where I want to balance the image and make use of space.

  3. Expand/Collapse node with a single click

    Would be great to expand/collapse a node with a single click, this is standard on all mind mapping tools I have used. Thanks.

  4. Calendar plugin that allows users to set dates to nodes

    Being able to generate a basic calendar from nodes would be very nice. Ideally that calendar would be able to sync to ical and etc.

    eg:
    3DEC
    task 1
    task 2

    5DEC
    task1
    task 5

    etc.

  5. line thickness based on importance in mindmup 2.0

    I find the small lines between nodes quite small. In the official Tony Buzan interpretation of mindmapping:
    "The central lines are thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as they radiate out from the centre."

    As for the organic and flowing part: well done. However, line thickness stresses the importance of a node and as such, I'd like to have it in mindmup 2.0!

  6. Custom color palettes

    The current color palette is limited and not aesthetically pleasing. I'd love to be able to go to (for example) colourlovers.com and find a palette that I like, and apply that palette to my map.

    A good start to this would be to add CSS classes for colors 1 - 35, eg: .mapjs-color-1, .mapjs-color-2, .mapjs-color-3, etc. The color chooser widget should then use these class names to apply the color instead of the explicit RGB code. Then I could grap the color codes from colourlovers and use that to create a new palette.

  8. Freer movement of parents and chidlren

    At the moment you are very limited in where you can place Parents and Children-Perhaps introduce a "free" mode where you can place the Parents and Children wherever you want without everything automatically altering

  9. Link to jump to different node

    Clicking a "link" button on the node jumps to a different node. Much like the anchor tags in HTML.

    It would be really useful if I could do this by clicking specific text within the node. For instance, if the node said "Causes of shortness of breath: Asthma, CHF, Anemia, etc." I would like to click the text "asthma" and it jumps to the parent Asthma node somewhere else in the map and displays all it's siblings.

  11. "Isolate" a node by zooming in, collapsing siblings, and centering on a selected node

    For large trees it'd be nice to have a shortcut key that in one key press:

    1) centered & zoomed on the selected node
    2) collapsed the sibling nodes to "focus" the view on the selected sub-branch

  12. Endless Scroll. Would be great to see endless scroll functionality here allowing you to center the map at any location.

  13. chat window and/or comments in collaboration

    Could we have a chat window incorporated into the collaboration sessions along with a way to add comments that stay with the session after it's closed (without adding a node) kind of like Google docs does now? I think this would improve the collaboration capabilities a lot!

  14. Adding attributes to nodes

    Why: to enrich the nodes with additional structured data, so the mind map can be used for importing/exporting purposes. Freemind has the same feature where you can switch the visibility of the attributes.

  16. 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.

  18. Adding icons from a library

    The text in the node should be complemented with icons of degree of importance, progress, or simply to add images to expand the idea in the node. Every mind mapping software has this feature

  19. Internationalization of the user interface

    As far as I can see, the user interface is only available in English. This is be a big hurdle for those people that don't speak English. The user should be able to choose the interface language and the choice should stick between sessions.

    Ideally the language could be specified as part of the access URL, so we can give it away to our users and be sure they will be accessing the application in the right language from the start.

  20. Node Attachment View

    I already commented on some other idea in this forum with this, but I think this is really important. Many mind mapping tools are using so called notes view (node attachment in mindmup), but they are all doing it wrong. Maybe you think this is a bold statement, but with 15+ years of mindmapping experience I can assure you that notes (mindmup attachments) are integral part of any mindmapping/writing creative process. MindMap is visual way of structuring informations, but equally important is sequential (text) representation, which is after all final product of most export operations. The only software which is…
