What is MindMeister?

MindMeister is an online mind mapping tool that allows users to capture, develop and share ideas visually. As a MeisterTask user, you can log in to MindMeister with your existing email address and password.

 

Once you're logged in, you can use MindMeister to create mind maps with your team, brainstorm ideas, plan projects visually, outline strategies and much more. When you're ready to move from brainstorming to getting things done, use the MeisterTask integration to create actionable tasks from your ideas. 

 


 

Attach a Mind Map to Your Tasks

With the MeisterTask-MindMeister integration, you can attach mind maps directly to your tasks. Simply:

 

  1. Open a task.
  2. Click Add Attachment.
  3. Click MindMeister – you might be asked to log in to continue.
  4. Click on the map you'd like to attach, then confirm your choice by pressing Select map.

Create a Task out of a Mind Map Topic

Once you've logged into both MindMeister and MeisterTask (with the same email address), you can easily turn any mind map topic into an actionable task:

 

  1. Open a mind map in MindMeister.
  2. Right-click the topic you'd like to turn into a task.

    Tip

    If you don't have a right mouse button, select the topic and click the ellipsis (...) which appears.

  3. Click the Actions icon.
  4. Click Task.
  5. In the next windows, choose a project, section and assignee for your new task.
  6. Your new task is now created in MeisterTask. Changes made in MeisterTask will also be immediately synced to your mind map.
