How do I enable two way task sync between Mind Manager desktop and Mindjet Action?

I just watched the Mindjet Agile Planning webinar and saw the presenter do the following actions, which I've been eagerly waiting for, but do not see happening in my Mindjet account with MindManager 2012:

1) Send a task from Mind Manager desktop directly to Mindjet Action (without opening the map in Mindjet Vision to use the Send Task to Mindjet Action function).
2) Two way task syncing, with changes in Mindjet Action being sent back to and reflected in the map in Mind Manager desktop (or Mindjet Vision for that matter).

I checked for updates, and it says there are none available.

Please advise how I can enable this LONG-awaited feature set. This has been my biggest frustration with Mindjet since you enabled integration with CoHuman/Action, and I really want the frustration to end!

Thanks,

Jason

I'm afraid there is only one short answer to this: you'll need Mindjet 11 for Windows (the successor to MindManager 2012)

Bummer. Do you have a link for the upgrade? I don't see it on the website.

Also, this question has been asked numerous times in the forums, and I haven't seen any announcement or answer to those queries asking for two way sync. Y'all need to take care of that so your customer base is aware.

At the bottom of Mindjet Shop page (http://www.mindjet.com/shop/) you will see options for current customers to upgrade

There's only a subscription option? Can't I just pay a one time license for the desktop app upgrade? The two way sync is the only feature I'm making this upgrade for.

We only offer a subscription based model now. I asked a Sales Rep to reach out to you on Friday to discuss your situation

Is this true about two way sync? Jason, is there a link to see this webinar after the fact, or was this a live webinar only? I have been waiting for this for quite awhile as well and have been checking to see if (and when) it's implemented.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tim

Tim,

Here's the link to the webinar recording.

http://blog.mindjet.com/2013/04/agile...

It seems that Mindjet forgot to notify all the users that have been asking and waiting for this feature, and now we have to upgrade to get it.

Not very good customer support in my book. Quite disappointed.

Still waiting for a reply to my last question on options.

Thanks for the link Jason. I had been following the comments on this link from many months ago:
https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet...

If you could share (or anyone else reading this post) can provide feedback on a main comment that this thread was asking based on "True integration of Action and desktop apps is a must-have", this would be great.

If anyone can confirm that there is true integration and round trip communication between vision, action and the desktop, this feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Tim

Currently the two-way sync of Mindjet desktop and Mindjet Tasks is only available on Mindjet 11 for Windows so not on Mindjet for Mac.
