Good evening,
How does one collaborate and share maps with those who do not have a license?
Example: I export a mind map and share it with someone who has downloaded the android software. How does the recipient import it and use the map within their android app and also Is this feature only for those who have a license?

Save the map in Dropbox (maybe other cloud services). Import from there to Android app. requires a license.

iThoughts on iOS will connect to many different cloud services.

Thank you but inside the android app I do not see an import option.
Is there any documentation on how to import a map?

Convoluted work-around here:
Needs: Both parties to have a shared dropbox folder with the map file in question IN that folder (just sharing the dropbox link doesn't usually enable both to edit the map).
Dropbox installed and logged into on android device

In Mindjet android app, go to menu>settings>other>check Dropbox. = Dropbox now shows up on initial screen along the top.

Map can now be opened from the dropbox folder. When the are changes to the map AND the map is closed With the android BACK button, Changes are saved in dropbox folder and visible to the other user of the folder when they SUBSEQUENTLY open that file.

1) you switch to a different app before backing out of mindjet map
2) you turn off the phone without backing out of the mindjet map
3) you swipe the app out of the recent apps list without backing out of the mindjet map
***some formula and tag information has been lost when a map with that information has been opened on the android app. I haven't checked to see if they fixed that since I had the issue a year ago.

Only one person can revise the document at any one time and changes are not visible until the map is saved by backing out of the map.

Hope that helps someone
