Is there any way to show the next [n] tasks per Project?

Hello 

Is there any way to mark certain topics to be "Projects", and then for MM to only show the next [n] task within each project?

e.g. I might want to have a complex hierarchy of subject areas, and at various different levels of hierarchy to have my "Projects". And suppose I have a number of large projects with say 20+ tasks within each Project, would it be possible to create a view where I only see the next 3 tasks for each Project?

Cheers

J

Again another solution is available. You could use the Map Rollup feature (Advanced tab under Dashboards) to do most of what you request.

To explain HOW you use it, I would suggest you see some webinars, read the manual or helpfiles or  contact a coach.

As a matter of fact Colin has made a video on publishing multiple maps using the Map Rollup functons (and use the MAP for MindManager addin to mke it even more easy)

The example is for publishing, but since you have many projects and this question is on how to show (publish) parts of you projects I am sure you can see the benefits.... Alec Stewart.. or is it still John Smith??

D'accord avec Colin. ResultsManager est à mon avis le meilleur outil pour répondre à votre besoin.
Agree with Colin. In my opinion, ResultsManager is  the best tool for your need.

OK I'm trialling ResultsManager, even though it seem rather expensive for me. 
It's a shame there don't seem to be much in the way of recent explainer videos, as I'm rather dyslexic and only read with difficulty.

ResultsManager had better be good... ! It's GBP 249 - more than I paid for MindManager, although there is a sale on taking it down to GBP179, which is still a LOT for a small company like us. 

Can anyone point me towards any good up-to-date explainer videos for RM?

There seem to be a few videos for using TPAssist with MindManager for doing Getting Things Done... Any strong views?

John,

We will be producing some videos for ResultsManager soon but at present there are none.

However, the add-in does have a very comprehensive set of well-authored help and demonstration maps and I am happy to answer any specific questions if you have any via email. (see below)

Regarding TPAssist I think you will find this has been discontinued since MindManager 14! Possibly earlier.

Hi Nigel

So far it does look interesting, although there is quite a steep learning curve and how well it will work with 400 or will be interesting!

Many thanks
