Is it possible to create a template for topics? I want every new topic to have automatically the Progress Icon, so I don't need to add it each time manually.

Hi P.Chon

Yes, this is possible. We included a template that does this to help customers see an example, you can find it in the SmartRules templates



Then choose Basic Task List



In this template any new topic you add has a progress of 0%, this template also has a simplified marker list so the tasks only have 0% and Done so if you click once the task is marked done (instead of percents). Also completed tasks show grey and crossed out.



All of this is done through the power of SmartRules, you can view them to see how they were created. Copy these examples or create your own (note that the 3 SmarRules that are in all maps to start are disabled in this template). Let me know if you have more questions!

It‘s the company’s Laptop and mindmanager was deployed by our IT. I Guess we only have the licences for an older version. That’s really a pity. I will have to add the Progress icon manually. Thanks

You can drag the icon from topic to topic. That saves time.

You could also create a mappart where all topics have a progress icon and reuse those. These mapparts are small templates.

If you have more than 5 users, you normally have MMEnterprise with obligatory MSA (right to get the latest version) We find that IT people have the upgrades and new license keys, but often only upgrade if users ask for it.
