Overall Satisfaction with MindJet MindManager

It is used to capture ideas during brainstorming activities and to organize topics for presentations. It is also used as a high level planning tool in conjunction with MS Project.
  • Using keyboard shortcuts it is easy to construct a map
  • Easy to share with others, even those who do not have MindManager on their computer
  • Access to large number of map templates
  • Offer easier to use or insert graphics
  • More free-form lines and topics. Make it easier to stray from the templates on topic placement
  • Leads to quicker creation of reports when organizing information with MindManager
  • Effectively share information with others in a clear graphic style
MM integrates better with Office vs Novamind. MM is the recommended mapping software for our company. We have colleagues already using MM so it is easier to share maps across the organization.
Our company supports its use. We are already familiar with how to use it. Lower learning curve vs switching to another application is also a factor in renewing.
Does it integrate with existing office products? It is appropriate for brainstorming and quick idea maps.
