Is the External Reference Smart Map Part still supported in 2017? I use to be able to create a link in one map (project master) to the individual task update branches on other maps and then choose a tool "Convert Hyperlink To External Reference". That way I could update individual task maps and then see the consolidated updates in my master map.

I have never used that External Reference Smart Map Part - did not even know it was available.
But to update individual task maps and see the consolidated updates in a Mastermap you have several options.

There are Add-in's like TopicTracker from Olympic-Limited https://www.olympic-limited.co.uk/mindmanager-add-ins/topic-tracker-mindmanager/

or The Light version that is part of the MAP add-in.  https://www.olympic-limited.co.uk/mindmanager-add-ins/map-for-mindmanager/topic-actions/ (scroll down to topic actions)

Another option is to use the Map Roll-Up function that you find under the Advanced Tab.
WIth that you can achieve most of what you want.

Thanks Ary, Map Roll-Up covers off exactly what I want.
