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. Ability to format text inside bubbles like make it bold(at least)

    It would be great if we could format the bubble text like we can use bold,italic,underline,highliigher,different fonts and text color so that while revising the maps we can easily find what we are looking for.

  2. 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.

  4. Ability to dill down on a node to create a sub-mindmap

    When creating mind maps they can become very large with lots of children nodes linking ideas. To help this problem it is really useful to dill down on a child node to create a sub-mindmap, in the sub-mindmap the child become the parent node in the centre, and all its child nodes are shown. This means you can create one large mind map and dill down onto set topics or area you are working on. A software called "xmind" does this but it doesn't link to google drive.

    Keep up the good work guys :)

    while this is getting votes, just a quick note that this is already available as a three-step process:
    1) use ctrl+x (or cmd+x on mac) to cut a subtree
    2) Use File→new from clipboard (potentially in a new mindmup window) to create a new map from the cut tree. Save it and copy the URL from the browser
    3) paste the URL into the original map as a new node – this will link to the new map

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. Draw curve link lines between nodes

    Right now the line you draw linking nodes it´s straight and crosses over nodes, should be better a curve lines like the ones that conects dependent nodes

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Keyboard Shortcuts for moving nodes left and right of the root

    It'd be great if we can move the first level of nodes left or right using Ctrl + → or Ctrl + ←.

    Keyboard shortcuts already exist to move a node up or down (Ctrl + ↑ or Ctrl + ↓).

  14. "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

  15. Provide alternative outline view

    There are times when I visualize things as a hierarchical list and there are other times I'd visualize the tree graphically.

    hi,

    you can create an outline now by doing file→export to local disk→text (or html). the text export creates a tab separated outline, which you can load easily in excel. the html outline creates a doc that you can load in a browser or with word/similar text editors.

    How is the proposal different from the current feature?

  16. LaTex Math or equation editor

    Some way of adding some basic math into our nodes

  17. Assigned tasks with due dates integrated with Google tasks

    Allow a node to be a true task and ideally integrate it with Google Tasks. If not that, create a list of tasks assigned to you as user with due dates and a listing by Map/Project and then a listing with all tasks.

  18. Possibility to freely place graphics or graphic elements on map

    Would be great to be able to place graphic outline elements into the map. For example draw an outline around a group of nodes to create a different kind of more loose connection/grouping. Nice if such shapes could be colored too and placed behind the map.

  20. 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.
