AutoSave = AutoCrash?

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Working with new installations of both MindManager 8.2 and 9 recently has led me to conclude that the advice of this 2007 post still holds. If you are using MindManager with an add-in like ResultsManager or MindReader, you can avoid intermittent crashes by turning off the auto-recover feature in the options.

What do I do when I…

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

In a coment on the project management series, Charles suggested MindManager map outlining how to accomplish certain tasks with MindManager, GyroQ, ResultsManager, Outlinker, and other tools in the site. A map might ulitmately work, but I think using a page on wiki.activityowner.com might be easier to put together collaboratively. I’ve pasted in his initial outline […]

MindManager Housekeeping with the ResultsManager Multi-Map Checker

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

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 […]

Updated “New Project Map” (NM) tag posted

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

A MindReader power user suggested by email… Is it possible to add an extension to the nm tag to prompt to automatically run the k tag i.e. do you want to create a new link to a destination map – y/n? I use nm quite a lot but often forget to go and create a […]

Simplify your ResultsManager Map Central Strategy for 2010

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

The typical approach to utilizing ResultsManager to harvest project and next action information from MindManager maps is to set up a central map that links out to each map of interest or to a set of “area” map centrals which links to project maps. While this approach does allow you to navigate down to particular […]
