What they say[edit]

“Co-editing of Maps

Collaborate easily on maps that support simultaneous, independent editing by multiple users within a workspace.

Instant Meeting

Experience true virtual collaboration through the integration of web conferencing and white boarding sessions.

Chat

Get real-time answers with integrated instant messaging services.

E-mail Integration

Alert team members to workspaces, topics, documents or instant meetings with integrated e-mail.

Collaborative WorkspacesSecure Workspaces

Create new workspaces when you need them, for new projects, new teams and new clients. Then tailor your workspaces with access controls for invited members, locking and versioning of documents.

Personal Workspace

Create a personal place to store your own maps, files and other information without inviting other members to join that workspace.

Workspace Owners

Create workspaces tailored to your business if you are a user with workspace creation rights. Invite members and assign discretionary access levels.

Workspace Members

Workspace members are select users invited to a workspace. Members are assigned access levels upon invitation by the workspace owner.

Workspace Notes

Keep everyone on the same page with workspace descriptions that add context and clarify goals.

Share Documents Across Workspaces

Avoid costly rework by linking maps and documents to other workspaces ensuring that only the most current version is accessed at all times.

Workspace Maps and Files

Collaborate with your workspace members using maps that support co-creating and editing by multiple users. Workspaces can also store all types of files such as Microsoft Office documents, PDFs and others.

Access Levels

Collaborate confidently, knowing that workspace members can be given one of three access levels once invited to the workspace: Owner, Author or Reader.

Version History

Innovate freely, because Mindjet Connect allows you to create a snapshot of maps and documents and saves every version.

Check Out / Check In

Keep collaborators from overwriting each others’ work by “checking out” documents and files so that they can be changed safely. Check In versions and publishes documents.

Document Locking

Workspace owners can prevent members from editing documents by locking documents in a workspace.

Sort and Tag Files

Find the right workspace, map or document right away by tagging your most frequently used and hiding others.
