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. "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

    • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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

                • 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

                  • 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.

                    • 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 -…

                      • 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

                        • Ability to publish a map in a public directory

                          I'm following up onto http://mindmup.uservoice.com/forums/200447-what-should-we-focus-on-next-/suggestions/3800017-searching-browsing-through-public-mind-maps

                          It would be great to be able to share publicly some maps. In the same way a drive document can be private, shared (anyone with the link), or public (searcheable and browseable).

                          When a map is made publicly available, a title and tags could be added, along with other metadata (author nick name, last modif date, creation date).

                          The public directory(ies) would be browseable by tags, last modification date, title, or words within the maps. Ideally the directory would be indexed by search engines, and maps would be indexed along.

                          E.g. 'impact map mindmup" on…

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                    When making changes or suggestions on a map it would be nice to know who suggested ideas or change a line so owner can make choice of corrections.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
