Greetings all,

I am using Mindjet Connect; why am I unable to create folders? I want to be able to organize my maps in folders. I used to be able to do this; but now the menu option is disabled...

The ability to create folders in Mindjet Connect Free is not a feature. This is available in the Connect Business Edition. I have included the link to our feature comparison guide. I hope that this helps.

If we have more maps in Connect Free, everybody must sort these maps in a way. I only can do this with the file names. If I would change to the Business Edition and now can use folders, I have to rename all the maps and all my links in the maps are broken. Not very good!

I ́m a single user. Even if I want to have the folder and so I want to buy the Business Edition, it is so expensive, because I have to buy more than three licenses, round about 450 Euro???? This I can ́t understand...

I am not sure that I am fully understanding your question. If you move from a Connect Free to a Connect Business account you should not have to rename your files. Are you currently experiencing problems with this? Please give me a little more detail and I would be happy to assist you further. Thank you!

There are two issues.
1. To set up a hyperlink to a Connect Map, you have to "copy as a link" then paste as "absolute" hyperlink in the MAP. If you subsequently re-arrange the Connect files into folders in a business account,then the "absolute" link is broken. if the links were "relative" within a folder they would still work.
2. I think this issue is that the minimum number of users for a business account is 3. If like myself and "gerwinschalk" you want to use Connect to store Maps which you can access from multiple PCs, (For example a home desktop PC and a company PC), and you wish to arrange them in Folders, then you end up having to pay 3 times more than you should.

Yes, why is there no way to buy the Business Edition for 1 user????

I don ́t have to rename the map files, but if I can use folders I would like to renname my map files. Now I have to integrate the folder name into the file name. Not a good solution!!
