How do I insert a simple checkbox toggle for task lists?

I would like to be able to scatter check boxes (or some other form of to-do list toggle) around my mind map.

 

I have found icons that look like checked boxes, but I can’t seem to find an interactive way to check things off by clicking.

Hi @Hal ,

 

whats about placing an kanban near your mindmap - here you can drag and drop tasks from one region to an other:

A additional workaround could be to use the Visual-Notes section for your questions:

Or add comments to each node - you could then flag them as “Resolved”

 

Thank you for your quick reply!

And thanks for the pointers.

I am sure one of these will work.

I had need for a simple toggle checkbox tool from day one. After getting over the surprise that there isn’t one, I now place a shape next to the thing I want a binary indicator associated with and set the initial parameters to stroke and no fill. Then when I want to indicate the state has changed (eg, the task is done) I change the shape to fill and no stroke.

Works perfectly for me, hope that helps.

A really good idea to work with.

Thanks for sharing

I simply use color coding for indication if one branch is already done in the Mindmap. But maby a simple checkbox would be helpful, as well.

 

 

Anyway it would be nice to get a connection between a Kanban and a Mindmap, mapped by the name of the task.

Took me a while to find working Checkboxes in the Wireframe Library app, but it works well. Hope that saves others some time!

 

I use Miro to take notes during user tests. I would find a check box very useful to track task completion. It needs to be a quick interaction that I can check to indicate whether the user could complete the task or not.

Hi @Josiah Lybbert. Did you try the suggestion posted by @Daniel Herrera? Should be swift enough of you set it up in advance. 🙂

@Henrik Ståhl Wow, I didn’t see that one. Thanks!
