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. Recent maps

    It would be handy to be able to see active links to the last few opened maps. Maybe they could be listed under the controls in the box?
    I save everything to Google Drive.
    Not sure if this could be implemented given all of the choices you have given us for storage....but it would be handy.

  5. Save to Non-Github git repository

    Save to a git repository with specifying URI "git://~~~".

    I want to save a mindmap to a non-Github git repository. Because Github private repository is not free. Git is not only Github.

  6. Include image size shortcut button for SMALL, MEDIUM or BIG images

    With this shortcut, the user simple click on the size of your desire and increase or decrease image size without thinking in pixels

  7. Aggregate numbers from child nodes

    I really like the way Memofon lets you sum numbers up from child nodes (go to http://www.memofon.com/playground and select calculation from examples). I would love to be able to sum up units from nodes in MindMup, especially in conjunction with with Progress extension

  8. Facilitate use of mindmup for agile story writing

    Each box is a story. Each attachment is a summary of conversations and outline of acceptance criteria or list of simple tasks. Option to print off individual box and attachment as a story and conversation. Introduction of box numbering, and improvement of printing to allow better text files to be loaded as data into Excel to allow pivot tables in Excel. These steps could be added as a feature presented as a "Backlog" of stories output.

  9. 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 -…

  10. Associating metadata with nodes to enable linear sorts and alternative layouts

    Another user suggested alternative layouts like hierarchical views, but another layout that would be useful for me is a linear sort to be able to see nodes in order of when they were created/edited. This would require associating timestamp metadata with each node. I'm not sure if this is already done, but even if it is, being able to sort over this metadata would be awesome.

    The suggestion for alternative layouts is here: http://mindmup.uservoice.com/forums/200447-what-should-we-focus-on-next-/suggestions/4126728-provide-alternative-outline-view

  11. Lock nodes status

    When I use the Progress extension I define some colors to tasks. Then when I go to my taks that are childs of nodes that are ideas, not tasks, the ideas take the colors of the state from the childs and that is not usecefull. Also when you are collaborating with people and you want to let them know that some node should be lock by the moment, somebody can change it if you don't lock it. Could be some other ways that "lock" is a good feature.

  12. Replace ancestors with "..."

    I would like to be able to replace all ancestors of a node with a special node. For example, I click on a grandchild, activate this feature, and the parent and grandparent disappear and are replaced with a single node that looks like "...", or something like that. This lets me focus on a small portion of a map.

  13. copy image of selected nodes to clipboard

    Tools like omnigraffle, and powerpoint support the feature of copying the current selection to a clip-board as image, after which it is possible to paste it to another software e.g. blog, word, powerpoint etc.

    As a project manager in order to create documentation faster I need to copy paste images from my mindmups.

    I know there is a workaround (export the map as a file, select a file name, after which insert image using menu and browsing it from the file system), but this is just too many steps.

  14. A hotkey and a toolbar shortcut to make open "all the nodes" at one go

    This kind of thing will help when the map is big and you want to save mindmup in image(PNG) format

  15. Export a readable image of a small map

    I have a small map, let's say 4 nodes. I want to export it to PNG and use it a presentation. However, exporting ignores zoom level. So I get a small image, which is useless for presentation. The workaround is to capture screen and crop the image in a browser, but this leaves one node with a selection and the background is not transparent.

  16. 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.

  17. Crosscutting Feature with Nodeannotation or Tagging

    Hey,

    there are things which span on a different level across.

    As an example: Think about a Mindmap with Services. Like Web, Database, Email etc. and every one of those 'nodes' need information about how to backup its data.

    What you would do without crosscutting: You would make an backup node on every one of those nodes.

    With an annotation or an Tag, you can add a Backupannotation (with content).

    The benefit is quite simple: you can have an list view where you see all annotations and all nodes annotated with it. It will generate an 'Backupinformationlist' automaticly.

    Perhaps an…

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

  19. 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.
