Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

I use MindManager routinely to organize and develop ideas for grant proposals, research manuscripts, and project activities. It is the software with which I usually begin each project because it helps create a coherent framework for a range of considerations on any given project. For some projects, I use the task features in MindManager to set due dates, allocate tasks to team members, and indicate progress on tasks. I usually do the bulk of my actual writing for grant proposals, technical reports, and scholarly manuscripts using MindManager.
  • Knowledge Management
  • Task and Project Management
  • Project Planning
  • Unlike working in a wordprocessing document, MindManager allows the user to easily navigate from section to section and reorganize these as needed.
  • MindManager's exporting function allows the user to send the work to other formats, such as Microsoft Word, for final formatting and dissemination.
  • MindManager allows easy placement of links and other external content into maps.
  • The one area where I'd like to see improvement in MindManager is the availability of tutorials on higher-level functions. There seem to be an awful lot of buttons that I don't know how to use, and the existing tutorials tend to jump into these functions assuming that I know things that I do not yet know. I'd like to be walked through from beginner-level tutorials to more advanced levels.
I’m not sure
  • MindManager quite definitely saves me time and frustration in the preparation of papers and reports.
I'm a visual thinker, and so the branched structure and ability to reorganize sections of my proposals, reports, and plans really helps me gain a better grasp on the overall task at hand.

MindManager is ideal for preparation of grant proposals, in which you have specific criteria outlined by a sponsor and then need to basically "fill out" these different areas with your text argument.
