Is it possible to save my mindmaps on my private NAS so that other people - with the right to read on my private NAS - can use them directly with MM 2018 ?

Thanks for your answer.... but my question was not good written...  sorry  :-) 

If I understand rightly if I save my MM with example DROPBOX and other have the right to write on it, with mm its possible to check out the version. So teh others must wait until the map was checked back.

How can I use this "check out" from MM if I use my NAS (synology).
In MM I can only save by DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE, ONE NOTE, Sharepoint and BOX.
How can I add my NAS ?

Thanks a lot.

Again.
Normally you save your Mindmaps on your Harddrive. When you select save from the file menu, you see LOCAL as the default.
If you don't specify where you want it, MindManager even creates a MyMaps folder in your My documents folder.

Using the same LOCAL you can get to your NAS as well. I suggest you create a folder on your NAS where you store youe Mindmaps and name it so everybody recognizes it.
And if your colleagues have acces to your NAS they can find you Mindmaps folder on the NAS and are able to open those maps.

Now.... to allow your colleagues to READ ONLY you have to encrypt your Mindmaps and give them a read only password.
This is HOW
When you have your mindmap open you go to File => Info and select Encrypt Document.
Don't forget you passwords ;-)
