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. link to another mind map

    It would be really nice if we could link a node in mind map to another mind map with a relative path . eg if we have many mind maps in a folder ..
    > Transport
    > Air
    >plane
    >Land
    >Car=>Link to=> "car.mup"
    >Bus
    >Van
    >Water
    >Ship
    >Boat

    Eg in above example if we could click on car and go a mindmap called car.mup somewhere in the folder . it would be a clean ,navigable and much more maintainable map. esp we are have huge maps.

    Note : map files could be accessed using relative paths eg : ~/folder/folder/car.mup

    • Ability to filter which nodes are visible

      Ability to filter which nodes are visible - based on status - eg don't show complete, or only show completed, or only show status > 10 etc

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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

              • Bubble and text styles

                To allow using styles to define bubbles' colors, shape, etc.

                • 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

                  • 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

                          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?

                        • LaTex Math or equation editor

                          Some way of adding some basic math into our nodes

                            • chat window and/or comments in collaboration

                              Could we have a chat window incorporated into the collaboration sessions along with a way to add comments that stay with the session after it's closed (without adding a node) kind of like Google docs does now? I think this would improve the collaboration capabilities a lot!

                                Keyboard junkies will thank you for Z and Shift+Z, but most natural / popular and fast way of zooming "around maps" is via mouse-wheel.
                                It might interfere with touch-pad scroll/pan, but if you implement both - there will happy users instead of frustrated ones.

                                  • Adding attributes to nodes

                                    Why: to enrich the nodes with additional structured data, so the mind map can be used for importing/exporting purposes. Freemind has the same feature where you can switch the visibility of the attributes.

                                    • Stop userAgent sniffing and use feature detection

                                      Currently your site does userAgent sniffing on page load, which is a web anti-pattern (see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Browser_detection_using_the_user_agent, https://css-tricks.com/browser-detection-is-bad/, https://www.sitepoint.com/why-browser-sniffing-stinks/ and plenty of other resources). After all, a user can just override the user agent string.

                                      Instead you should use feature detection to either shim when a feature is unavailable or then block until that browser supports the feature.

                                      For the record - the app works fine in Edge with a userAgent that tells you it's actually Chrome.

                                      • Make child the same color as parent by default.

                                        To make life a lot easier than having to color each node individually

                                        • Copy and Pasting on Multiple Nodes

                                          Currently when you select multiple nodes then paste, nodes from the clipboard appended only to the first selected node.

                                          It would be a time saver if MindMup can paste on all selected nodes instead of only to the first one.
