Best tool for note taking at meetings

Just been at meeting today where delegates were impressed at me making mind map of notes and demonstrated the exporting feature and fabulous templates - expect new orders!

Pros

Everything about it is fantastic and the export feature is great to create reports. More praise is superfluous but need to meet the character count!

Cons

there really isn’t anything that I can think of that is negative! What’s the point of adding more when there isn’t anything negative to say!!!

Highly Intuitive and Simple

Pros

It is so easy to use to create maps of various sizes. It is like Visio on steroids and SO much easier to use. Type and enter to add data fast, click and drag to move, multi select, tons of formatting from font to color to cell borders. Plus you can assign people tasks, timelines, create Gantt charts and so much more.

Cons

2018 currently does not allow double clicking to highlight text in a cell but I am told this will be corrected. Otherwise, nothing.

Most loved computer application

I have used this product since its initial launch and it just gets better and better. The support, which I have hardly ever needed, is also great and very responsive.

Pros

I have used this product since it was launched nearly 20 years ago. I love it and use it for all sorts of applications from writing business proposals to planning projects. Would not be without it.

Cons

None...it is just a brilliant product and makes my life easier and more productive. I know that is not a 'con' but that is because there are no cons to this fantastic tool.

Great to illustrate complex estates

Pros

We use this software to visualize complex estate structures for high net worth indiviudals. It works well for this and the clients appreciate seeing it this way.

Cons

I don't like that you have to us the sidebars and bottom bars to adjust your screen view. I wish you could zoom in/out with a roller ball on the mouse and click and drag to move your screen view.

Management in visual way with tasks, projects and complex topics

powerful management supporter in many areas - clear view of central topic, easy way to present relations with context information (notes,attachments,links,...)

Pros

I like MindGenius for templates library very much - it's great time saver and BIG step to start mapping for new users.
MindGenius has advanced tool as Question set - to develop maps very fast.
It's easy to add contextual information to tasks - attachments, links, resources, icons,etc.
User can use advanced options as:
- creating maps based on categories or resources,
- presenting information as Gantt chart,
- sync map with MS Outlook (tasks)
- quick filter map document.

Cons

It would be great to see more options of "document view" - like calendar (except Gantt chart) or opportunity to add tags & group of tags to map topics.

Great for capturing and organizing thoughts for meetings, presentation, projects, and more

Pros

The interface is both fast enough and intuitive enough to support real-time editing with groups of people. The integration with Microsoft Office speeds the process of utilizing the content.

Cons

No Android version and iOS version has limited capability. Web-based version moved away from mindmapping focus to project management (seems great for that use case).

Great tool for improvement and project work

We utilise the software during improvement and project work and this provides a great platform for brainstorming and idea building. Being able to then drop the mind map into project planning tool is fantastic. The report tool is great for internal communication about progress and workload.

Very intuitive and comprehensive piece of software

Great bit of software that links seamlessly between mind mapping, project management and presentations to name but a few. Easy and quick to use with extensive functionality. Very responsive customer service and support on the end of the phone. Would thoroughly recommend using if involved with projects, programmes, portfolios or just simply wanting to facilitate brainstorming / blue sky thinking workshops.

Fantastic tool for brainstorming and project management

At our company we use Mind Genius software as an integral part of our improvement techniques. The benefits to our improvement teams, Six Sigma projects and failure investigations have been one of the main contributors in successfully achieving some of our business targets. The report function is a brilliant tool for summarising reports. We use this to inform and communicate the status of projects. The question sets are great and the templates are good for providing ideas for projects and how to structure the projects. All in all we have improved our business through Mind Genius.

Great multi-purpose application

Great application that allows me to move between creative idea creation (mindmap) and at a click switch to project management 'language' (Ghantt / ressource map). Very intuitive to use.

MindGenius is my 'go to' tool for planning and managing projects

MindGenius is a great tool that helps me plan and manage projects. I use it for almost everything from personal 'to do' lists, when I'm doing research and business planning. I even used it to project manage the extension on my house. Pros - Mind maps easily convert into tasks and there is even a Gantt view. I also really like the exporting feature and often use this to bring in MS project files. Cons - I can only use it on my PC, although there is an iPad version, and I believe they are working on an online version.
