tags for nodes
tags could be used to see the connectivity and also search through the map
Tags would be highly beneficial.

I add my vote to this request!
Adding multiple tags could be useful, but I'll settle for one!
- label something as a task, label that the task is done/being waited on
- it would be great to associate images with tags too
- highlight or list labels with a certain tag
Tags like # tags in Workflowy would be really a big improvement! So would integration with Worklfowy
I was just going to enter this as an idea and thought to search for it, first. Thank you. Being able to select by tag would be such a godsend. It would enable one to look at the state, progress, relationship of all nodes related to a task, topic etc... in one swoop without having to remind one's self what one should've been looking at on the map.

Tagging, combined with filter by tag, would be extremely useful. A simple use would be to identify nodes as requiring action (thereby adding a whole level of 'todo-list' functionality) but I'm sure there are many uses which this would open up. Nice to have would be automatic association of tags with colours or badges for a rapid visual confirmation of the state of the map

Hi, I'm using mindmup for finance breakdown. The use case for this is you can tag a node for expenses or income and then process the measurements by the tag.
Sorry for my bad english, Thanks in advance
What I would like with this is a way to tag a node with something like #impact or #goal or #screen or #systemaction.
I could do this by editing a node and typing a string preceded by a # symbol as the first element, for example "#actor System Adminstrator". The node would then display the tag in a discrete box on the node itself so I could see at a glance which nodes have been tagged, and what that tag is.
I would then expect some kind of tag manager where my created tags show up and I could filter the nodes shown by tag so that all nodes and connectors that don't match the tag are set to 30% opacity for example - still readable so I could follow a path, but toned down enough that they don't distract from my focus on the tagged nodes.
I could also use the tag manager to set default colours for my tags, so if I was creating a user flow I could tag user interactions, screens, system actions etc, and they would be automatically coloured for clarity.
Trello uses a similar system and I find it immensely useful as a way to organise information and bring clarity to projects.
and add a view filtering by tag, to toggle item visibility - node or connector
