New from Mindjet: MindManager for SharePoint
We’ve got news, great news!
Mindjet is pleased to announce our newest member to the MindManager family of products:
Microsoft SharePoint Server is one of the world’s leading business collaboration platforms that helps teams connect and manage content throughout its information lifecycle. SharePoint solutions, deployed both on-premises or as hosted services, makes it possible to cut costs by lowering development costs, training and maintenance expenses and increasing IT and end-user productivity, all within a governable and compliant platform.
SharePoint sites tend to grow rapidly within organizations which sometimes cause challenges for users when they try to find and update their documents and tasks. Search and navigation throughout multiple sites is time-consuming. It’s also not possible for users to create and interact with aggregate views of SharePoint content. That’s why we created MindManager for SharePoint.
MindManager for SharePoint provides faster and easier ways to find, organize and update SharePoint tasks and information. With MindManager for SharePoint, you can create personalized interactive views (maps) of SharePoint data to save time accessing and updating your content within SharePoint.
You’ll enjoy all the power of MindManager with the new capability to display synchronized data that lives inside SharePoint.
Instant Dashboard Views
With a click, you can build a dashboard to display all of your assigned tasks & issues across multiple sites. Update % complete or task priority directly in your MindManager map and it’ll instantly update in SharePoint or use the topic link to open and edit the record directly inside of MindManager.
Interactive SharePoint Site Maps
Create your own personal dynamic SharePoint site map to one or more sites. You can annotate topics with icons, tags and text notes. Add new SharePoint content with the special ribbon command or create private subtopics that contain your ideas and research before adding the information into SharePoint. The freedom is now yours.
Custom Project or Process Dashboards
Organize and layout SharePoint content the way that you want to see it. Each branch of your map can use custom filters to dynamically display content that meets your needs.
Here are a couple of dashboard examples. The first, displays project information collected from three SharePoint sites and presents it all as one aggregated view that you can use to update status, filter and focus attention on top priorities that cut across multiple projects.
The second map, organizes information by people. This example illustrates how a manager can quickly consolidate tasks and issues for each of their staff and use the map to align priorities, monitor progress and resolve issues as a team.
They’re both fast and easy to setup and the best part is that you’re the boss. You decide what content to include in your maps!
Project & Program Dashboards
Facilitate Staff Meetings
Visual Search Results
Users can also search for keywords across one or more SharePoint 2007 sites. Results are displayed within your map with active links to each record.
In addition to the new capabilities above, you get the power of MindManager to brainstorm, solve problems, conduct research, facilitate meetings, develop strategies and plan and so much more…
This release is immediately available in English, German and French.
