Send an OutLook Message to a New Project Map

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Often times the first step in processing an email request is to define a dedicated project map to attack it. The latest version of OutLinker has a new send to "New Project" map option. This will create a new MindManager project map, attach the message, message text, and/or link, mark it up based on your […]

forum.activityowner.com returns

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Back in 2007 I briefly experimented with setting up a set of discussion forums to work along side the wiki and the blog. At the time it seemed like spam was going to get out of hand, and there were better alternatives, so I turned it off. Since that time the activity levels on the […]

How to add a "next quarter" keyword to MindReader

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

I noticed this morning that MindReader didn't have a default keyword for setting the due date of a tast to be "next quarter". I thought it would be useful to put up a quick post on how to do this. 1.

Auto OutLinker

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Sometimes when faced with an inbox full of somewhat related Microsoft Outlook messages, the easiest way to proceed is to just process them all into MindManager with OutLinker and then sort them out. Steping through the messages 1 by 1 to accomplish this can be time consuming. The latest version of OutLinker has a new […]

A different approach to marking tasks complete

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Juan has been collecting on his 2008 Next Action Analysis Contest prize with some macro requests. This weekend he asked for a MindManager macro that could take a ResultsManager dashboard with tasks that had been manually set to 100% complete (not processed with the "d" tag or "mark task complete" macro) and process them all […]
