To add some clarity - I have Box A that splits into Boxes B, C, & D.  I then need to show both Boxes B & C connecting to single Box E as an output of both resources. Is that possible? Thanks ...

This is an example of a many-to-one relationship which mindmapping software isn't so good at as it is based on a one-to-many paradigm. However there are various ways to do this, for example through the use of relationship lines.

I wrote an article on how to create expandable and collapsible many-to-one relationships on my blog: https://sociamind.wordpress.com/2015/... While this is probably more than you require at the moment the post does describe the different approaches that can be used.
