Hi
We ́re still using MM8 and Catalyst, and we ́re very satisfied. Now we ́re one more at the office. Since it is not possible to buy ver 8 she has to use ver 2012.
Is it possible to use 1 license of 2012, 5 licenses of ver 8 and all collaborating in Catalyst (not Connect)?
It all comes down to if 2012 can connect to Catalyst?

Best regards
/bjorn

MindManager 2012 only integrates with Mindjet Connect, it will not work with Catalyst through the desktop client. However, your 2012 user could log-in to Catalyst from the web version and access maps there. Hopefully this helps.

Here is some additional information regarding Mindjet Connect: http://www.mindjet.com/pdf/us/MJConne... should you be interested in moving from Catalyst to Connect in the future. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you!

So, given that Catalyst is $108/user/year, what is cost to the upgrade to Connect? I've searched the site but cannot find any Catalyst -> Connect upgrade info...

For this year, the price will remain the same. If/when you renew your Catalyst account, you will pay what you paid last year and you will then receive a Connect business account. I hope that this helps to answer your question.

Sort of.

I have about 9 months left in my Catalyst accounts. If I upgrade to Connect now, will that mean I pay nothing until my renewal date in 9 months, then the same $108 per user as my Catalyst account?

Also, can we use Connect with our MM8 installations with Connect like we do with Catalyst? Or would MM8 become obsolete and we'd just work in the cloud with Connect?

Thank you for the quick response Robert. I am going to have one of our renewals specialists reach out to you so that they can discuss this process in more detail with you.

Oh, ok...

I'm not asking for anything "special", mind you. There is an "Upgrade Catalyst" link in my online Catalyst portal, but clicking on it just leads to the Connect sales page of the MM web site with no further info or even a way to upgrade.

I just want to know what that means in terms if dollars and how-to.

Hi Robert. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. MindManager 8 will only integrate with Catalyst. In order to use Connect, you would need to upgrade to the latest version of MindManager. You could also work with Connect in the cloud as an option as well.
