Offline Files and the link to them

Dear all

I am a new user of minjet and I want to handle my offline files (Excel, Powerpoint, Word, other types) within mindjet maps.

Already knowing the function of file-hyperlinks to link to the offline files, I am worried about the assurance of my structure I intend to create.

Imagine you would have hunderds, even thousands of offline-files that are related with a link in mindjet-maps. Now the file-folder-structure changes, mindjet won't be able to handle the files anymore and the structure you set up in mindjet ist useless.

How did you - or how would you - set up such a structure with a minimal risk of loosing offline-file-relations?

Thanks for your input an have a great day,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

If you just add links manually to your map and then move the source locations, the links will not find the files.

If you use the Mindjet File Explorer map part it's possible to generate a dynamic branch of your files that can be refreshed so new files are added automatically and deleted files are removed. You cannot change the structure though. You can tag and use markers though to categorize / add context to the topics.

Hope this helps.

thanks,
Michael

Thank you for your answer.

I think my offline-files would be within the cloud, what, until know, I try to avoid.
The only tagging system I know is the one I can use within branches in the mindmap. Where do I find the tagging system you mention?

Thank you in advance and BR,
Daniel

I was referring to markers (text or icons) which can be applied to the topics. Then you can filter (e.g. show me all topics/documents that are related to Project X). You can apply and manage markers via the marker pane.
