The powerful visual features of MindManager also include conditional formatting within calculations. For example, limit values can be set quickly and easily, and when these are exceeded, the branch colour is automatically changed, making it immediately identifiable as a warning. This means that the user can recognise at a glance when defined values have been exceeded or not met, and take swift, appropriate measures to resolve this.

Reports and presentations

Reports and presentations

The ability to create a range of views and detail levels means that MindManager can also be used for reports and presentations. It is possible to display information filtered by target group from as-yet open questions or individual branch views of subordinate aspects, for example. The interactive presentation mode improves attention compared with conventional slides and allows changes and additions to be made even during a presentation.
