MindManager 7 Setup Tip

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

While it can be character-building to hunt around the new MindManager 7 menu for things like My Maps, Map Markers, Task Info, Map Parts, and the Library, you can save yourself a lot of time if you go in and immediately reactivate the MindManager 6 sidebar tabs as shown below: This was mentioned in the […]

ResultsManager 7 Preview

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

It’s not actually “ResultsManager 7” — the humble folks at Gyronix have only incremented their 3rd digit (2.7.7 to 2.7.8) — but for a free upgrade, their upcoming MindManager 7-compatible release provides a significantly improved interface and adds real day-to-day value. While experienced users may have some difficulty generally adapting to MindManager 7’s Microsoft Fluent […]

MindReader 7

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

The recent ActivityOwner.Com review of MindManager 7 mentioned that a big downside of the new release was a bug that prevented the file operations in MindReader macros from working correctly when called by GyroQ.

As most ActivityOwner.Com readers are likely aware, Mindjet is launching MindManager 7 on May 31st. Marc Orchant and Chuck Frey have enumerated the new features of the program in detail, so I won’t go into them here. I would note that the upgrade pricing from version 6 has not been announced, but given that the […]

Linking Projects to Next Actions — A ResultsManager non-issue

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

Kelly Forrester posted a new pod-cast she did with David Allen on the difficulty people have with the idea of not being able to link their next-actions back to projects easily. David rightly points out that if you are in the hardware store, you are much better off reviewing your next action list for that […]
