MindManager 2012 is the latest version of their leading visual mapping software and has been designed to be easier to use and at the same time more powerful for our over 2 million users.
Analysis View: Make better decisions by prioritizing and categorizing your mapped topics using the new Analysis View. The tool allows you to place topics into a predefined series of 2×2 analytics charts. Standard charts include Cost vs. Opportunity, Urgent vs. Important, SWOT and others. Unlike standard “table generation” products (like Microsoft Excel) which are typically based on quantitative data, the Analysis View allows people to create and dynamically move different alternative topics in the chart that reflects the team’s qualitative feedback.
Enhanced Hyperlinks & Browsing: Based on popular demand, you can now assign multiple hyperlinks per topic. We’ve also made it easier to use MindManager’s browser to conduct research. While you are using the built -in browser to navigate web pages, you have new right click menu functions to send images, selected text, or an entire page to your map as topics. You can now set a home page for the browser that you use in MindManager.
Gantt Chart Improvements: You can now drag and drop topics onto the Gantt chart to make them tasks. Printing of Gantt charts is easier with print preview and the ability to select a specific date range for printing.
Faster and More Productive: New users can get started faster, and experienced users will be more productive with a new getting started pane and enhancements to the MindManager interface.
New “Getting Started” pane – A series of videos and images with text guide a new user through the basic tasks required to create their first information map.
Improved Ribbon – The Home tab on the ribbon now contains all of the most frequently used mapping functionalities. More advanced functionalities are now grouped in more intuitive categories on the other tabs.
New templates – 36 new templates are included with the product, as well as access to an online Gallery and selected content from the “Maps For That!” community site.
