The Map2Excel tool has been converted to an easily installable MindManager add-in. More information is available here. The add-in also incorporates Map2Table and Map2Outline.

To download the add-in, visit

Note that the ActivityOwner Tools Add-in is also fairly functional now and ready for testing and feedback.

    Hi Cesar — Its possible the issue is that you are using 18.2 and it was compiled for an earlier release. I just recompiled it with the latest mindjet version installed on my machine. Give it another try.

    The IT Admin is asking ‘…what directories/files need to have admin rights for this program to be able to function properly?…’

    Could you provide that information?

    Hi Cesar — The install program puts the program and some jpegs in C:\Program Files\ActivityOwner.Com

    After installation it shouldn’t need special rights to any location I don’t think.

    Just downloaded map2excel and am pleased with the export capability. Unfortunately, when I import an exported excel file I lose all the properties. Are there import options I don’t know about. The properties seem to be labelled “custom”. In any event, additional info would be appreciated.

    Hi Rich — Can you give some specific example of what you want it to do? The addin was developed quite awhile ago and mind manager may have evolved to have more/different attibutes than it was attributes originally designed for.

    Thanks for getting back to me. We are doing an analysis of a set of 12 complex development projects and are using MM to correlate observations and develop findings. We will most likely have 1500 or more observations to track, and we are guessing that we will need some statistical and other tool support for collection, analysis and presentation. Excel seemed an obvious tool to provide that support. We have been using tags, but thought properties might provide an easier means of recording and dealing with information like dates, and so forth. Therefore I was disappointed to find that properties came out labelled as custom in the spreadsheet, but were ignored when we read the sheet back in. We are using 2019 version, and I think we will be able to use tags exclusively, but really would like the option of properties.

    Oh – in addition, it was the ability to import using a spreadsheet to add information that was of particular interest of us as well, as we get observations in batches, and filling in the spreadsheet is easier than cutting and pasting and then manually creating and adding tabs.

    I’ve now officially purchased the product, and so am very interested in your response:-) One other issue we have found is that tags that are imported lose their hierarchical organization. Again, don’t know if this is because of the 2019 version or is just too difficult.
    Look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Rich — I’ve got my development system working again so can have a look at this as time permits. Can you pick a feature to prioritize to meet your needs?

    Just purchased Map2Excel. Can’t wait to try out the capability to import Task Info from Excel in MM2020.

    Installed Map2Excel MM2020 32-bit.
    Performed export Table with Details (no issues), and then Import the same Excel file (to test).
    – New map generated from the import
    – Process complete message window popped up
    – Click “OK” on the process complete message, MM2020 quits (or crashed?)

    Tried the process with small map (10 Topics) and large map (100+ topics). Same scenario observed.

    Any setting I need to adjust?

    Captured the error code this time.. Applications error – “The instruction at 0x000…01E2EC4A reference memory at 0x000…094. The memory could not be read”

    Found a work around to this import issue.
    Just add any text or number (just not a date or empty cell) in the first cell following the last row. The import process is basically expecting to read another date, the text will cause the import to error out and stop the process. Import is basically completed and get the job done without MM2020 crash. Cheers!
