How to start MindManager from Microsoft Teams

MindManager files cannot be opened within the Microsoft Teams app. The only option I found so far is to associate the file open command with a Zapier service.
This is not satisfying. There should be an option to open MindManager files directly in Teams like Word and Excel files.
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

Hi Urs, 

I dont see any options in teams to change the file association. 

Here are a couple of alternative solutions for you to consider - 

1. Install the MindManager Server App for SharePoint Application (Requires a MindManager Enterprise license). All files stored in Microsoft Teams use SharePoint as the storage backend. Our SharePoint application allows you to Views maps in the browser and there is also a command within the application to 'Open in MindManager'. 

2. Add the SharePoint Document library as a Place in MindManager. You can then open any file stored in MS Teams/SP directly in MindManager. 

Best, 
-Marian

We are doing this (until an update comes from either MS or MindJet).  Open from within MM and remember to check-out and check-in (top left of map when it opens)

Do all Team members need to have a MindManager license? I tried to share html-version, but the links did not work. Best regards, Ola Flesland

Good to hear!  Please look at OneDrive integration too  - Im having a lot of trouble with maps that are stored on OneDrive crashing or losing sync.

Thanks!

Thanks, I've reported that you are having issues with OneDrive to QA. Is there any way to consistently reproduce the issues you are having that you can describe so QA can replicate the issue?

My company also having frequent map crashes with OneDrive.  The trigger seems to be clicking on the task completion circle on a topic. Crash reports sent in but no response.  We have disabled MAP add-in (Olympic) to see if that makes a difference.

Thanks Richard, our quality team is investigating but could not reproduce the issue yet. Do you think it's related to the MAP add-in? I don't think they tested it with that installed.

We Are Using MindManager for years now and we recently changed to Teams. Sia, is there an official announcment of the Integration or even a Roadmap/scedule? We don't like to Change to another Mindmapping-tool, but waiting ist also not an alternative. Thanx a lot for an answer.

Hi Jochen, there is no official announcement yet but my guess is that you won't want to switch to a different tool anytime soon. I can't share details publicly at this time, but if you would like to learn more about our Microsoft Teams integration or help us with beta testing please email me at ux@mindjet.com.

Hello Ola

This is a good question. Our policy is not to pre-announce capabilities until at or close to launch. That said, we have a large amount of new capabilities coming and I believe there is something for everyone - even you. Stay tuned.

Cheers... Blair
