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. nodes around parent node, instead of just on one side

    It's annoying all the children nodes are on one side of the parent nodes. Ideally nodes are around the parent node for better visualisation when revising.

    • move nodes where I want

      I would simply like to have enough control to move the nodes where I want to balance the image and make use of space.

      • add support for Image note!!

        currently Mindmup does support attaching Images
        but from my experience, it's only useful for icons of 50 pixels in size!
        because large image would mess up the look of the map

        so I suggest adding what I call "Image note"
        when adding them, they would not appear on map, instead it would add a tiny interactive icon just like when adding notes

        when the user click on it, the Image would appear just the like the note would appear

        • Follow Connection Lines

          On a big map it's difficult to follow connection line from one node to another. Would be helpful to be able to quickly navigate connected nodes from the selected one (like right-click menu 'Go to...' with the list of all connected nodes).

          • Have a sort of circular style for the map themes

            Like the typical mind maps, where the nodes go out from their parent in a radial direction, instead of only left and right

            • theme editor for nodes

              Allow, for example, to have dotted lines for nodes, or outlines with different weights.

              • Ability to have notes displayed on map downloadaed as PNG

                I do not see any integration of Mindmup to JIRA.I can see it only to google drive.

                The only way I can upload my test scripts to JIRA is to download it as PNG and add it to Confluence Page.

                Unfortunately with current application theres is no way to download it with Notes.

                Well, my first preference would be to have integration with JIRA/Confluence.

                Thanks

                • Generate Gantt charts with dates i/o and costs for common project tasks management

                  To clic a button to generate Gantt charts with noted dates (begin & end) and costs calculation for common project tasks management could be a very good improvement to MindMup, you don't think so ?
                  Also of course if the dates can also be linked to Google Agenda in the same time, it could be an heaven !

                  • map background color

                    I use Mindmup every day and I hope this feature will be implemented one day. It would make the maps more colorful and easier to read, which is an advantage for rote learning (among other things).

                    • integrate google calendar

                      Allow users to insert a date/calendar entry into MindMup that syncs with google calendar. That way, when a user sees the calendar entry in the calendar they can click on the file and open the attached mindmup.

                          • add stock icons

                            add stock icons similar to what XMIND has. it's pretty useful to have icons such as 1,2,3,4 to identify priorities. Smileys and flags are also useful indicators. The workaround now is to upload the images as the icons.

                              • Node Attachment View

                                I already commented on some other idea in this forum with this, but I think this is really important. Many mind mapping tools are using so called notes view (node attachment in mindmup), but they are all doing it wrong. Maybe you think this is a bold statement, but with 15+ years of mindmapping experience I can assure you that notes (mindmup attachments) are integral part of any mindmapping/writing creative process. MindMap is visual way of structuring informations, but equally important is sequential (text) representation, which is after all final product of most export operations. The only software which is…

                                • Smart Layout

                                  It would be great to have choices in how the mindmap is laid out. The vertical orientation of the current mind map makes it difficult to see the "whole map" if you are sharing it in a web meeting for insights (i.e., online retrospective). This could be accomplished by some of the other suggestions such as "emphasizing major nodes" and the current collapse/expand subtree feature.

                                  • Ability to place Text Box on the Map

                                    Have the ability to place text box's anywhere on the map. For example, I color code nodes and would be nice to be able to place a legend on the map for others to understand what the colors mean.

                                        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.

                                        • Custom color palettes

                                          The current color palette is limited and not aesthetically pleasing. I'd love to be able to go to (for example) colourlovers.com and find a palette that I like, and apply that palette to my map.

                                          A good start to this would be to add CSS classes for colors 1 - 35, eg: .mapjs-color-1, .mapjs-color-2, .mapjs-color-3, etc. The color chooser widget should then use these class names to apply the color instead of the explicit RGB code. Then I could grap the color codes from colourlovers and use that to create a new palette.
