Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

I use MindManager extensively for documentation, projects, and creating presentations. I have shown it to numerous students and people I work with. I wish I could have a $1 for every referral I made to buy MindManager prior to this last version.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Education & Training
  • Knowledge Management
  • Meeting Management
  • Problem Solving
  • Task and Project Management
  • Project Planning
  • Visualizing an overview of a recently read book.
  • Walking thru a process.
  • Importing large MS Project files to see visually.
  • In 2021, they removed the export to PowerPoint feature. They were good to provide me a refund. I will stay with 2020 until the feature is put back.
  • It seems that after the Corel purchase they have lost their way. I am looking for an alternative product and really like Lucid.
  • Ability to import in a Word document.
  • MindManager 2020 saves me 3-5 hours for each presentation.
  • Building curriculum saves me 2-5 hours on a 30 hours course.
  • To export to PDF saves me 30 minutes a week.
A great tool to collaborate on brainstorming a sprint. I used the tags feature to quickly create roadmaps and plans.
Mindnode will be my choice if MJ opt to keep the expert to PPT feature out.

Yes

Would you buy MindManager again?

No

Version 2020 would have gotten a 10. Version 2021 has features removed. Great for reviewing large project plans provided they can be imported. 2020 is a great tool for creating curriculum and presentations, then exporting them quickly to MS Powerpoint.

Yes. The 2021 MJ did not have the feature we needed so we stayed with 2020.
Yes - No. The export to PPT feature has not been restored.
Yes. They were good to let me know the feature was not included. "Understood and I sent your concerns to Product for attention unfortunately I don't have any ETA for any changes to add PPT back into 21. You can certainly request a refund."
