Present your project plans, strategies and reports using MindMeister’s built-in presentation mode. Turning maps into slideshows takes mere seconds.

Export & Embed

Include maps in your project plans by embedding them in your Confluence pages, or exporting them as Word documents, PDFs or text outlines.

Media Attachments

Attach spreadsheets, PDFs, charts, designs, videos and other project relevant files to the topics in your mind map to keep everything at a central place.

Comment and Vote

No need to use a separate chat tool to discuss ideas - collaborators can leave comments directly on the topics in your map, or quickly vote them up or down to give feedback.

Project Management

Define to-dos in your mind maps and then export them directly to MeisterTask, our Kanban-based project manager for teams. Tasks stay synchronized between both tools.

Using Mind Maps for Project Planning

Mind maps come into play at the very beginning of your project, when you need to figure out where you’re going and what needs to be done. But it doesn’t stop there. Here are some of the things MindMeister is best at:

Idea Development

When it comes to ideation, there’s no better way to get your team’s creative juices flowing than to conduct an online brainstorming session. MindMeister fosters a free flow of ideas and helps your team members build onto each others contributions, resulting in more innovative projects.

When it comes to generating ideas and working through creative tasks, mind maps are 30% more efficient than linear documents.

Research and Analysis

Thorough research is the backbone of every successful project. With MindMeister you easily collect all project-related information in one central space, enabling you to see the big picture as well as the details of the task. Conducting analyses has never been this simple and efficient.

Meeting Management

Ensure every team meeting is engaging and productive by using mind maps for effective meeting management. Create clear agendas, take visual notes and follow up with assigned tasks, all using mind maps.

Whenever we start a project, there are so many meetings, ideas, and conversations that take place – it’s vital that we have a way to organize, group and prioritize them. MindMeister is a great way to visualize our thoughts, ideas and priorities.
