A few questions

Hi, I have a few questions so I thought I'd ask them all at once.

1- When I send a task to MindJet Tasks, I'm the only one who is able to edit the task, is there a way to provide edit access to different people in the same map for all of my MindJet Tasks?

2- How can I set the task information so that by default all of the tasks show up in weeks? The default is set as workdays (which isn't very useful for us), and whenever I select to 'show years in task info', the duration shows up in minutes.

3- Is there a way to have at-risk and past-due tasks automatically code in yellow/red without having to roll up task information? The automatic coding would be extremely useful to us, but the rolling up task info isn't.

4- In the MindJet Browser under tasks, I see 'Waiting For', what is that tab used for?

Thanks in advance for the support.

Hi Yassen, I'll take a stab at some of your questions:

1- When I send a task to MindJet Tasks, I'm the only one who is able to edit the task, is there a way to provide edit access to different people in the same map for all of my MindJet Tasks?


If you add others as followers, I believe they should be able to edit the task information.


2- How can I set the task information so that by default all of the tasks show up in weeks? The default is set as workdays (which isn't very useful for us), and whenever I select to 'show years in task info', the duration shows up in minutes.


1. There isn't a way to set the default to weeks yet.
2. Can you provide the steps that you take to make the duration show up in minutes? Also, which version are you on?


3- Is there a way to have at-risk and past-due tasks automatically code in yellow/red without having to roll up task information? The automatic coding would be extremely useful to us, but the rolling up task info isn't.


Not yet. I agree that it would be valuable, I'll look into this.


4- In the MindJet Browser under tasks, I see 'Waiting For', what is that tab used for?


What do you mean Mindjet Browser?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry about the late reply, I figured I'd try replying here before starting a new thread.

2- How can I set the task information so that by default all of the tasks show
up in weeks? The default is set as workdays (which isn't very useful for us),
and whenever I select to 'show years in task info', the duration shows up in
minutes.

1. There isn't a way to set the default to weeks yet.
2. Can
you provide the steps that you take to make the duration show up in minutes?
Also, which version are you on?


I go into task information using the task pane in the right hand side and i click the center of my map and select 'show task info'. The task duration immediately gets switched into minutes unless I manually set it to weeks. The version I'm on is 11.2.185

4- In the MindJet Browser under tasks, I see 'Waiting For', what is that tab
used for? 
What do you mean Mindjet Browser?

I'm sorry about the confusion, I'm referring to the internet application of MindManager as opposed to the desktop application. When I log in through Mindjet.com on the left hand side I see 'my Tasks' "Recent' Activity' and 'Waiting for', I'm unsure what the 'waiting for' is for. 

Thanks!
