2017. MindMeister allows to mindmap in Microsoft Teams

Mind mapping service MindMeister added integration with group chat Microsoft Teams. All you have to do is add a MindMeister tab to your channel, and capture all of your thoughts and plans in a mind map. Your conversation can continue uninterrupted, but now everybody in your team can add their input to the map at the same time, to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. The mind map format is great for visualizing project plans, outlining strategies, brainstorming ideas and taking efficient meeting minutes. With MindMeister for Microsoft Teams, you’ll be able to collaboratively create mind maps without having to switch back and forth between the two tools, ensuring that everybody in your team is always on the same page.


2017. MindMeister introduced all-new public map library

MindMeister public mind map library holds close to 400.000 maps, with dozens of new creations added daily. The all-new public map library boosts a fresh and clean UI that’s easier to navigate and uses a YouTube-similar layout that promotes commenting, liking and sharing. While these features already existed in the old library, they are now much more prominent, transforming the formerly passive viewing of maps into an interactive community experience. The featured maps are now divided by categories, so you can now see the top maps for each category at a glance. Clicking on a map thumbnail now opens the map in a separate map view that offers space for lively comment discussions. The mind map itself can of course be viewed right there on the page, and as always, you can zoom in and out, open and close branches, drag the map into a new position, view attached notes, links, videos and more.


2017. MindMeister unifiers apps for iOS and Android

New MindMeister apps for iOS and Android allow to create, edit and collaborate on mind maps, on the move, and with ease. Both new apps feature our fresh new map selection layout, displaying all mind maps in a grid formation. Clicking between the tabs will provide you with a list of thumbnail previews for each of the enclosed mind maps, making searching for and selecting the right mind map a whole lot faster and simpler. With both apps, users can create and edit mind maps and map folders, collaborate in real-time across the mobile and web versions of MindMeister, share mind maps directly from the device, add icons, colors, styles and map themes, create, view and edit notes, links, tasks and attachments within mind maps, draw connections between nodes, play presentations, export maps in RTF, PDF and PNG format, seamlessly sync maps and folders with your web-based account, use the app as a stand-alone app, without a web-based account.


2016. MindMeister gets new look and feel

The mind map editor MindMeister has received a subtle redesign, with a new look for buttons and a few new arrangements in the top, bottom, and on the sides. It finally got rid of the old icon library which used to be displayed in a popover. Now you can just click on the small gray arrow next to the last icon visible in the sidebar in order to toggle back and forth between the normal sidebar and the cool new icon library. The map settings, accessible via the (i) button in the top bar, now contain the map themes and the map alignment options, as well as the map properties. Instead of the alignment options you’ll now find a recenter button underneath the zoom.


2016. MindMeister integrated with Confluence

MindMeister, the mind-mapping tool, that already provided add-on for Google Docs and the embed feature for public maps today added integration with Confluence wiki collaboration tool developed by Atlassian which offers a multitude of practical features for teams to create, share and discuss work. MindMeister is now available as an add-on in the Atlassian Marketplace, allowing you to create mind maps in our award-winning map editor without ever having to leave Confluence, and seamlessly embed them in your pages.
