Hi Anton. Thank you for your inquiry. The only place where Mindjet has a 2-way Task Sync, currently, is on the desktop application.

If you complete a task on the mobile or web Tasks application from a task that was created via the Send To Task, this will update back to the map if you view it on the desktop application. No action is required, it is being read into the map dynamically.

If you are asking if this is the case when viewing the same map on the mobile or web application, the answer is no. However, it is coming. Our team is working on developing this for both the web and the mobile devices.

I hope that this helps to answer your question.

I urgently pleaded for this functionality last year, and this is the first I've seen anything about it being implemented (and I don't see that happening my MM2012 desktop app).

Questions:

1) What data is synced?
2) Are you going to add a Send to Tasks button inside the desktop app? This is a MUST HAVE feature, as it is overly laborious to have to open the same map in Mindjet Vision just to Create Task and push it to Action.
3) What's the roadmap here? Are you going to flesh this out so that all data, including comments are synced back to the map? THAT would be truly functional.

Thanks,

Jason

This sounds great, would vastly increase the value of the tasks... any ETA?

The user story of being able to work with tasks in BOTH the view from maps and view tasks is critical. The tasks app's value and use-ability is negated without the user also being able to view tasks within the context of the topics that they are associated with in the map.

My tasks marked completed in the tasks iPhone app are not updating as completed in the desktop app. If I choose the hyperlink on each task it does display in a browser window that the task is 100% complete but there is no way to see this visually in the map. Am I doing something wrong?

This is what I'm doing. I create all of my maps as Mindjet files and check them in and out as needed. I create tasks in the web app and they appear on my Tasks app on my iPhone. I'm marking them completed on my iPhone but there is nowhere I can review projects etc and see what is done. Its a bit of a problem.

Is the task progress updated in the map when you refresh (F5)?

I'm on a MacBook Pro. When I press F5, the map centers but my tasks are definitely not syncing/updating from my iPhone. I've also gone to View--Refresh Mindjet Files without any updates to the map.
