Customize Your View
Work at the speed of mind.
Rigid, linear tools can leave your best thinking on the table. MindManager lets your brain work with information the way it was designed to — fast & dynamically — so you don’t lose a single brilliant insight or critical detail.

- Add detail and context to tasks as you create them, without stepping out of the flow.

Take the devil out of the details.
Productivity isn’t productive if you’re working on the wrong things. MindManager shows your tasks, ideas, data and detail in a shared context, so you immediately see what’s relevant, what should be prioritized and what you can let go.
- Uncover hidden connections between topics, tasks and data.
- Eliminate redundancies, identify risks and uncover opportunities.
- Make better decisions by seeing the downstream impact of actions before you take them.

- Visually connect related and dependent action items, to eliminate redundancy and encourage collaboration.
