‘Connect To My Google’ Privacy Policy

 

What is ‘Connect To My Google’?

Connect To My Google (“Application”) is the MindManager Add-In that integrates into MindManager interface and allows MindManager users to receive and modify their Google Calendar data (events and tasks).

How does this happen?

At the first launch, the Application refer to the Google Calendar service, requesting access to your Google Calendar data. The Google Calendar service opens a consent screen in your browser, offering you to allow access to your Google Calendar data. More information about which data is requested is reported in this window.

What data the Application have access to?

1. View your calendars and their settings.

2. View, create, edit and  delete events on all calendars that are available to you on your Google Calendar.

3. View, create, edit and  delete tasks and task lists on your Google Calendar.

Data use

Via the Application, you can make a queries to receive (events and tasks) data from your calendars by various criteria. The results of these queries are added to your MindManager document (map), and only to the document. This data is not stored anywhere else. You can modify this data in your maps and synchronize changes with your Google calendars.

Please note that your calendars may contain confidential information. From the moment this information appears in your MindManager document (map), access to this information is under your responsibility.

Your calendar data (calendars Id and calendars settings) is stored in the memory of your device during the work session, and after Application work completion this data is deleted.

Task4Maps

Automated Task Maps with a Kanban Style with MindManager!

Task4Maps helps you manage tasks using the Windows desktop version of MindManager/Mindjet with full automation. Based on an extended Kanban method, Task4Maps divides your tasks into three main categories representing Future, Present, and Past. Each of these is then further divided to fine tune the task proximity to the current day.

Task4Maps for MindManager

 

T4M-FocusThe main categories and sub-categories in Task4Maps are contained within Boundaries and as tasks are added or removed from categories/sub-categories the boundaries shrink or grow to accommodate the tasks. This provides you a quick, visual way of seeing which categories/sub-categories contain the most tasks and help you focus on specific categories/sub-categories as required.

Task Automation at your Fingertips

T4M_Auto-ScheduleTask4Maps can be used in two modes; fully automated or manual. When the Auto-Schedule feature is enabled, Task4Maps will automatically move your tasks between sub-categories depending on the proximity of the task due date or its percentage complete.

If you want finer control you can turn Auto-Schedule off and manually move tasks between categories and perform a single, on demand refresh of the map when you want to update.

 

T4M-Focus-MenuFocus…on what’s Important!

Task4Maps contains quick access views for the three main categories, Future, Present and Past. When you use these the map is automatically filtered to only show the category you are currently interested in focusing on thereby giving you more map canvas area to view and update individual tasks.

 

T4M-Topic-EditorTopic Editor

Task4Maps comes with a handy Topic Editor which lets you edit the task information in a small dialog that appears next to the current topic to save you having to move backwards/forwards from the MindManager/Mindjet Task Pane. Once you make changes, Task4Maps updates the dashboard to re-organize tasks if required depending on the newly changed task attributes.

 

 

Set your Default Start Map in one click!

We have also included a feature which allows you to quickly set the current map as the default start map to open and display each time MindManager/Mindjet is started. Simply select the command from the ribbon menu and your current map will open next time you start MindManager/Mindjet. This works with ANY map, not just Task4Maps dashboards and you can use it to quickly swap default start maps without having to visit the MindManager/Mindjet options dialog.

Windows Defender Glitche

Sometimes (once in a blue moon 0-) Windows Defender suddenly blocks MultiMaps setup file.

We are absolutely sure this is an erroneous Windows Defender behavior, so called “false positive”:

All users who faced this issue use Windows Defender as antivirus program. Other antiviruses don’t detect any threat.

  • We checked MultiMaps setup files with the most powerful anti-virus online services: VirusTotal and Kaspersky VirusDesk. Both services did not detect any threats. You can do it as well (see step 6 below) when you have some doubts.
  • Also we checked setup files with Windows Defender’s own online service (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/filesubmission). And it did not find threats as well!
  • After download and install MultiMaps version that Windows Defender considers infected, we checked one by one all the files in the installation directory – with the same Windows Defender. He did not find any threat in either of them. Here is an interesting result – none of the files Windows Defender detects as infected, but.. finds a trojan in the setup file of which this one consists…

So, if you want to use MultiMaps add-in, but Windows Defender does not allow you to download and install it, you can:

  1. Open Windows Defender: click on the Settings icon in Windows system tray and go to Defender Security Center or find Windows Defender Security Center in the Windows Start menu.
  2. Click the “Virus & threat protection” icon.
  3. Click the “Virus & threat protection settings” link .
  4. Turn out the “Real-time protection”.
  5. Download MultiMaps setup file.
  6. At this step you can check the setup file as described above – via online services VirusTotal and Kaspersky VirusDesk.
  7. Or you can immediately install MultiMaps and turn on real-time protection disabled on the 4th step.
  8. To prevent Windows Defender from blocking MultiMaps setup file in the future, put this file in Windows Defender Exclusions. To do this: in the same window as the real-time protection, scroll down to “Exclusions” and click the link “Add or remove exclusions”. In the next window click “Add an exclusion”, then “Exlude a file” and then browse to and choose the downloaded MultiMaps setup file.

Good luck!

MultiMaps Ribbon

MultiMaps consists of a few modules.

Datensammlung

The purpose of this module is quite simple – collect data from any number of maps by any criteria:

  • by dates (tasks that are active Today, Tomorrow, This week, Next week, etc…;
  • topics with specified Icons;
  • topics with specified Resources;
  • topics with specified Tags (or tag groups);
  • tasks with given task Progress or task Priority;
  • tasks with given Effort;
  • branches with given parent topic’s name (e.g., your In-trays from project maps);
  • any combination of the above!

You can collect data using Templates or even without Templates:

  • there are predefined Data Collection Templates (you can easily modify them according to your needs);
  • you can create easily your own collection templates;
  • collect data “on-the fly”, without template;

The Data Collection sources can be:

  • Central Map that holds links to maps used in data collection;
  • Folder (and its subfolders) that holds maps used in data collection;
  • Map Collections from My Maps pane.

—————————————————

As a result, you get a dashboard map with all topics that match your criteria.

You will find out that each topic in that map is marked with its source and has a hyperlink to its source:

data_collection

You may edit this dashboard map as you want, and then, when needed, send your changes to original maps in 1 click!

The Data Collection engine is very powerful and has a bit of AI. But… we made it as easy for use as it possible. This is like an automatic gearbox and a cruise control in your car :o)

Nevertheless, if you need more, you can carefully learn the Data Collection Configuration map and its macro language to create your own filters and fine tune them to get all power and flexibility of Data Collection engine.

In the MultiMaps documentation you can find many useful and practical tips on how to organize and take control of your projects with mind maps.

Navigator

This module will help you:

  1. Find and open your maps easily and quickly.
  2. See all the links and attachments in your map (not just topics with links) with one glance; open them and manage them.
  3. Collect links to frequently used documents (maps, any MS Office documents, web pages, any files) and open them with one click.
  4. Bookmark any maps and map topics (like bookmarks in a browser).

Synchronisation

Synchronization module allows you to synchronize topics (with their subtopics, ie, their branches) in the same map, or even in different maps.

If you are synchronizing two topics (two branches), and then change something in one of those topics, or in any of its subtopics, or add or delete something in one of the branches, it will be reflected also in the other branch without your intervention.

You can synchronize any number of topics in any number of maps, stored anywhere!

You can synchronize topics in maps stored on different devices, on network disks (in your corporate network, for example).

Synchronization can be either manual or automatic.

Gemeinsame Werkzeuge

common_listsCommon Lists helps to organize all your resources and tags and easily use them in your maps.

In MindManager, Resources and Tags can reside in the Map itself and in the Template Organizer – Marker Lists. But it is not very comfortable if you have many Resources and Tags, and they cannot be organized/sorted at all.

With the help of Common Lists module, you can organize your Resources by any criteria, say Resources for Project 1, Project 2 etc., Resources for Company 1, Company 2 etc.

Similarly do it with tags – organize them into groups suitable for you

Common Lists are made in the same way as Index task pane, so you are already familiar to work with them.

When needed, you can easily find required resource or tag, and assign it to the topic. And if you need to add the whole Resource or Tag group into your map – you do it just in 2 clicks.

Regarding resources – the module also contains a resource database, in which you can save resource data – email, phone, its standart rate, etc. So, if necessary, you can very easily get all data about the resource from this database.

All is handy, easy and simple. Feel the pleasure from your work!

All is handy, easy and simple. Feel the pleasure from your work!

Projektverfolgung

Leider ist der Eintrag im Moment nur auf Espanol, English und Русский verfugbar

 

Have you ever wanted to see tasks needed to be done today, right at the moment you open your map?

Or on Friday evening, you are planning the next week and want to have tasks highlighted that 1) start in the next week, 2) are in progress and 3) end in the next week? Not filtered, not selected, but precisely highlighted in different colors? And practically without your “interference”.

Or you want to check the workflow and you need to see all tasks that end in the next 3 days.

And so on. There are many such scenarios.

Tracking module is precisely designed for the fulfillment of such desires.

Just one click – and your map become alive, showing you tasks to which you need to pay your attention:

tracking

So your maps became more alive. This module will help you in planning, in project reviewing, in task progress monitoring, etc.

You can use predefined tracking templates, and you can create your owns. You can specify highlight colors for different periods (Today, Tomorrow, etc.). When topic dates match a given period, the topic will be highlighted with given color then.

Highlighted topics can also propagate their color to parent topics, up to their Main Topic. So even in collapsed map, you may see that some Main Topic suddenly became red – that means there is something that needs your attention. You expand this branch and see what exactly.

This is easy to find out, what each highlight color means. As a topic is highlighted, the name for its color appears in Map Index pane:

FillColors

See more about this flexible and powerful module in the MultiMaps Help. Try it, and you’ll love it. Your projects should be alive!

Map Navigator

Leider ist der Eintrag im Moment nur auf Espanol, English und Русский verfugbar

 

begunok

The Map Navigator module consists of two independent functions.

1. Map Content

This is very simple but useful function. As your map grows up, it became hard to browse through it – you have many branches opened, and have no complete view of the map. You need constantly scroll the map to reach the needed place, or collapse branches to get the overview of the map.

The Map Content does very simple thing – it shows the list of topics in the separate window as a tree, allowing collapse/expand levels in that tree. The map itself is kept untouched.

When you click a topic in the Map Content window, the clicked topic in the map becomes visible and selected.

Map Content window is fully dynamic. Once you alter a topic in the Map, it is immediately reflected in the Map Content window. Or if you modify a topic in the Map Content window (yes, it is possible!), it will be immediately altered in the Map.

If you switch to another Map (without closing Map Content window), the Map Content window will be immediately refreshed to show the content of that map.

2. Bookmarks

MultiMaps Bookmarks do exactly the same as bookmarks in Browser, bookmarks in Word or Notepad and in any other program.

You can say that there is a function in MindManager named Labels, and this is nearly the same. Yes, Labels are a kind of bookmarks. But they work in the current map only.

MultiMaps Bookmarks allows to bookmark topics in maps in the same way as Labels does, but you can access them even if the map is not opened. MultiMaps has its own Bookmarks database that holds bookmarks from different maps. Just in one click you open the target map and navigate to target place in it.

As well as for Web browsers, you can organize Bookmarks into Folders. For example, “Reports” folder can keep bookmarks for Reports topics from different project maps. You don’t need to remember where this damn report is, and how to navigate to it through a map.

bookmarks

There is also a special bookmark group named Favorites. You can put the most often used bookmarks there. Just imagine how quickly you can now access to the most required topics!

All in all, everything is simple. Bookmarks are bookmarks. They are always useful, they allows you never loose needed places in needed maps, and save your time and mood when you search these places – one can become very nervous spending a lot of time navigating through a huge map 🙂 .

This is what to be applied to different maps.

Now… to make it easy working with a specific map, especially with a big map, we added a very useful feature named express bookmarks. Nevermore creep through a map like a snail. This is the time to run through it like a cheetah!

Free your mind and your time from unneeded routine things. Allow Bookmarks to serve your needs. Twice the efficiency of your job!

Synchronisation

Leider ist der Eintrag im Moment nur auf Espanol, English und Русский verfugbar

 

sync

Synchronization module allows you to synchronize topics (with their subtopics, ie, their branches) in the same map, or even in different maps.

If you are synchronizing two topics (two branches), and then change something in one of those topics, or in any of its subtopics, or add or delete something in one of the branches, it will be reflected also in the other branch without your intervention.

There are many applications to topics synchronization.

For example:

  1. Your map contains the description of some processes (business, or technology, or procedures, or instructions, etc.). Some of the processes or their parts contain exactly the same steps as the others. Or this process is duplicated in the other map. If it changes it is necessary to change the same in the duplicated process. So, all you need is just set up synchronization between needed branches, and Synchronization will do the rest. Your work is halved right away! As you change something in one process, the changes will be immediately reflected in other.
  2. In your Central Map, you want to see overall outcomes from different project maps. To do that, create a topic named Report there, and add subtopics, one per each project. Then synchronize these subtopics with required (summary) topics from your project maps. Now the “Report” branch reflects the most actual data from required summary topics. Automatically. Without that, you would need to copy such data manually, and this would take time (and errors). Now Synchronization does it for you.
  1. You are a Project Manager and need to assign tasks to certain employees. You make a map, each branch of which is the tasks for such employee. Then you synchronize these branches with certain branches of employees’ maps (named, say, “Chief’s tasks”). Now just add tasks to your map, and they will be shown in employee’s map. Cool? I’ll say!The same way you may receive their reports, as the synchronization is two-ways. As soon as the employee reflects his activity in his map, you immediately see it.

You may ask: how is it possible to synchronize with maps that are not in my computer?

Well… we have applied a very interesting method that allows doing that. With our (Super)Synchronization module, you can synchronize any number of topics in any number of maps, stored anywhere!

You can synchronize topics in maps stored on different devices, on network disks (in your corporate network, for example) and even in Mindjet Cloud (Mindjet Files).

Two more points the Synchronization can do:

  • sync can be Automatic as well as Manual. You don’t need to bother that you may forget to synchronize something. As you set the synchronization up, it can automatically send and receive updates. Automatic synchronization can be turned off either globally or just for each particular topic.
  • sync can be either two-way or one-way. In most cases, you will want to use two-way synchronization, but this is not always the case.

In the above example Chief sends tasks to his employees, synchronizing his topics with employees’ topics. And in this case is very convenient to use one-way synchronization. Chief does not want employees to be able to modify his tasks and send modifications back to Chief (saying “This is what it was” 🙂 ).

—————————–

Accidentally, we found one more application for our Synchronization: a chat inside the map! Yes, you can chat with your colleagues in real time!

Just synchronize your topics. This is as simple as that! Probably we will add specific “chat”-related features in next releases.
