Our team uses mindmaps during all kinds of brainstorming, but also to categorize our ideas.
Recently, I discovered Mind Meister together with Meistertask.
It’s genius! I can create a mind map, then make some of the bubbles into tasks, where I can assign due date, assignee etc. I can also send them to a board in Meistertask.
The next time I log into Meistertask, the new tasks are there.
MUCH BETTER than having to spend time manually write all the tasks down after each brainstorm. Now I can do this directly with the team, at the end of each session.
It also solves a complaint from my employees. They complain that our tasks are lazily written, and that they don’t understand WHY they need to all tasks.
For example, I write “Design button with big icon in the middle”, and they are left irritated and wondering “… But why?”
There are several ways to solve this, and we’re working on it. We’re trying to improve the way we write tasks, but sometimes you just don’t have the time and energy to everything properly.
But if each task is connected to the mind map, it’s extremely easy to understand context.
Button needs to include icon --(Because)—> User needs to have a visual representation of the option ------> Make it easier for the customer to understand the difference between the options ---------> Customer find it difficult to understand and choose between products ------> Make it easier to buy products -----> Increase sales in online store
Now my employees can easily say: “HEY! That’s not a good solution, because this is the real problem”
Do you see the genius of this way of working? I know you included tags for this, but it just doesn’t work as efficiently as a mind map does.
HOW TO SOLVE
I would love Mondays take on the mind map, but I realize that’s in the future. (I imagine having this as an additional view. I’m almost crying thinking about how great it would be).
In the meantime, can you make an integration with a mind mapping service? (preferably Mind Meister, or something else)
Because I’m seriously considering switching from Monday to Mind Meister + Meistertask at this point, as we’re working a lot more efficient in this way.
I want this feature so bad. I’m begging, truly begging.
(Btw, I also really want emojis in board names )
