In Tasks mode, easily rearrange your Workspace by dragging branches to adjust where nodes are located, and organize them into logical paths. Quickly create, edit, and delete tasks (and subtasks) right from your view!
Creating and deleting tasks
Select a List node
+to add a new task
Write in the task title
Moving tasks from one location to another
Click on the branch of the task
- A diamond will appear at the end of the branch
Grab and move the diamond to the new List
The color of the lines in Mind Maps is correlated with the List color, and then the status of each task.
In the photo above, the List color is red, and then the task status colors are blue and purple.
Filtering Mind Maps
When a filter is applied in Tasks mode, all empty branches will be hidden - leaving you just the results from the task filter!
In Blank mode, you can create Mind Maps where nodes don't have to connect to any task structure. Create as many nodes as you like for reference points and quickly convert them to tasks in any List in your Workspace.
Creating and deleting
There are two forms of node creation within the Blank mode: the node toolbar or your keyboard.
Click on a node
Use the icon on the bottom to create a sibling node
+on the end to create a new child node
Deleting a node within Blank mode can be done in a couple of clicks.
Click on a node
Click on the trash can icon
Drag and drop
Move a node and its connected branch by dragging it to any other node.
Alternatively, you can use the same method outlined in Tasks mode by clicking the branch and moving the diamond to a new node.
Sibling Node Formatting Issues
When adding a sibling node, if you find that your Mind Map's formatting begins to overlap, you can fix the formatting by grabbing the root node in your Mind Map. Then, position the nodes however you like, and their location will be preserved.

Share your Mind Maps publicly with anyone outside your Workspace to keep everyone up to date on how your project is progressing. Public sharing allows the Mind Map to stay updated with those who are viewing it.
