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. TAGS

    It would be very useful to use tags in order to reorganize the map on tags

  2. Visually distinguish supporting and opposing reasons not just by color

    The edges between nodes in argument maps should visually distinguish supporting and opposing reasons not just by color, since many people are red-green colorblind.

  3. Auto-fit and formatting

    It would be great if you had a function that allowed the mind map to auto format so that all nodes would auto-arrange to fit the screen/map. Currently when nodes are created you need to manually sort them around the centre point. This can take time and never looks accurate. Also would be helpful to be able to change the size of the nodes or the font size in them.

  4. Integration with Google Doc

    Ability to create a linked Google Doc, eg. an indented bullet lists and or styled titles. Changing the map change the doc and vice versa.

    The use case is : mapping the content of an article within MindMup and quickly jump to text editing without export / file management headache.

  7. Import an other MindMup project in a node.

    If it's a big project sometimes we create a lot of Mindmup files. Then if we want a unique Mindmup for the entire project it would be a great feature to integrate all the MindMup files in that new MindMup as new nodes. Here every nodes would be a MindMup files that we could extand with the shortcut "/" .
    So the main interest is that in one file we got the entire project !

  9. Read mindmap with google spreadsheet

    I would like to be able to edit a mindmap and read all of the "directory paths" from a google sheet. For example:
    Column A:
    Grandparent
    Grandparent/Parent
    Grandparent/Parent/Child
    Grandparent/ParentSibling
    Grandparent/ParentSibling/Child
    etc.
    The use case here is that I would like to be able to use this list in autocomplete validation, so a row in a spreadsheet could refer to a particular position in a taxonomy that is easily editable as a mindmap.

  10. Having the possibility to Copy and Paste detached images instead of browsing

    The current problem is that we have to browse images from our folders and attach the images to nodes. I would like to be able to Copy and Paste images from Google onto a random place on the mind map. This will be more easier because we wouldn't have to adjust the size of the image and we will e able to freely move them around the mind map.

  11. Ideas for customizing boxes and text

    It would be great to introduce the following:
    - left- or right-align text, it's centered be defualt now
    - format text to bold or italics
    - save custom formats for boxes and text and apply to other boxes with text (like copying and applying text format in MS Word)

  12. Make it possible to have two/more parnt nodes that connect to the same child node(s)

    WHY: using concept mapping for this throws off the entire mindmap and makes it harder to navigate through it. It should be obvious that multiple thought processes can end up in the same place -- mindmup should provide the ability to display that efficiently.

  13. Stop userAgent sniffing and use feature detection

    Currently your site does userAgent sniffing on page load, which is a web anti-pattern (see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Browser_detection_using_the_user_agent, https://css-tricks.com/browser-detection-is-bad/, https://www.sitepoint.com/why-browser-sniffing-stinks/ and plenty of other resources). After all, a user can just override the user agent string.

    Instead you should use feature detection to either shim when a feature is unavailable or then block until that browser supports the feature.

    For the record - the app works fine in Edge with a userAgent that tells you it's actually Chrome.

  14. Drag and drop all selected nodes

    Currently, when multiple nodes are selected and dragged on another node, only one of the selected nodes is moved.
    It would be better to be able to move all of the selected nodes to the destination node at the same time (like with Freemind)

  15. Please extend the search to text within node attachments

    It seems we can only search the nodes but not the text attachments. It is difficult for us to use mindmup as a note taking or collecting tools because we cannot easily search those note recorded in the attachment before. Can you help?

  16. 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.

    hi – just noticed this one (sorry for a late reply, somehow it fell off my radar). what would you get from a firefox app that the existing chrome desktop app does not provide? I don’t mind supporting firefox if it’s something that is a blocker for people, but if it’s just duplicating the work that you can already do through chrome, we probably won’t be able to justify it.

  18. 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 -…

  19. 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

    This allows a mindmup to be used as a procedure for…
