Mindjet MindManager 2018 is a richly-featured mindmapping and visual management tool. I was asked to check it out recently and I put together this mini-tutorial on how to create a mindmap. My overall thoughts on the product are at the bottom.
(Full disclosure: I was compensated for this article but the views expressed are my own and this is an honest review/tutorial of how I found using it.)

Basic Features: Creating Mindmaps in Mindjet MindManager 2018
Most people will think of MindManager as mindmapping software – that’s certainly how I thought of the product before I knew it well. So that’s where we’ll start in this review.
It’s easy to create a simple mindmap. It’s the first template suggested to you on the ‘homepage’ screen, so just click that and then choose ‘Create Map’.
The first time you land here you’ll get the chance to walk through a little tutorial, but you can always come back to that later. I didn’t go through the tutorial at that point as I wanted to find out how intuitive the product was.
