Group Chat for Collaboration

Options

Would be helpful to be able to have real time chats with team members as we are working on the mind map. A text box like an instant messenger type communication would be most helpful..

    Hi @Vlv0017 👋🙂

    That's for sure a nice feature request...But...I'm afraid, that's for sure a lot of programming too 😋

    You can already add comments to topics for team communication. I think that's the best way to discuss within MindMeister. But if you would love to have a live chat, programmes like Slack are a very good alternative for effective team communication with lots of functions, that Meister not offers that way.

    The biggest risk with live chats, in my view, is that members quickly lose themselves in endless conversations.

    Best, Jörg

    Perhaps when leaving a note we can do an "at mention" to the person needing to be addressed? I am working on a small project with 2 other team members and it would be most helpful to be able to tag the other person in the note so they will know who is being addressed. In Facebook for example we use the "@" symbol when needing to target a particular person.

    You're absolutely right @Vlv0017 👍️

    In MeisterTask it's also possible to mention team members via the "@" symbol. So it would be a great advantage to implement it in MindMeister too.

    I definitely agree that the @-mention function should be introduced to MindMeister! +1 for that idea. 👍

    I also wanted to point out that we usually use comments to collaborate and converse within mind maps, since this makes it easy to track a conversation and see who said what (in contrast to notes, which just offer a space for additional info in the map).

    You can also set your preferences to get notified whenever a comment is made on a map: https://support.mindmeister.com/hc/en-us/articles/218435767-Change-Notification-Settings
