Collapsible branches on the mind maps


Userlevel 7

To me, this is the most glaring of the missing features on MIRO right now.  This app keeps getting better and works seamlessly, but that one missing feature is really holding us back from going all-in.

NEED this. Agreed: It’s the main limitation, and may ultimately be a deal breaker if not. I have many ways I want to Collapse my mindmaps. They do not fall into the established structures xmap offers. I want more control when creating relationships on what levels can be collapsed.

There is a taskade. Able to turn.
But there have its own problems - the rolled tasks seem to disappear from the system.

Agreed. This feature is NEEDED.

This would be a really great feature. Do we have any idea if/when this will be implemented?

Essential features currently missing; collapsable nodes + insert images into nodes. Adding them will be very helpful indeed!

Every month or so I peek back in here. No luck yet. See you in 30 days!
 

The rising vote count gives me hope.

@all:

Not only in MindMaps - even in all branch-oriented use of miro it would be cool:

Hope this core feature is coming soon

The following, in order of importance top to bottom.

  1. Collapsing/ expanding branches
  2. Auto sizing nodes ( even 2 chanceter text wraps for me but that could be user error!🙄)
  3. True custom layout for nodes, as opposed to enforced layouts
  4. Add pictures to nodes
  5. Customisable level formats,colour, font,font size .…

Any updates on this one. What's the status?

This is such an important feature! Makes organising your thoughts easier and focus on what you want while mapping your mind! Hope this will be introduced soon!

Any news on this feature?

What is the update on this feature?

Some teammates are already using another tool just for mind maps.

You are one of the mos expensive mindmap tools in the entire world. How can you miss such a basic functionality as the "collapse nodes" one? It is simply essential do deal with more complex mindmaps!

Looking forward to this, since I'm really interesting in buying the "Team Plan".

Hello,

I agree with the need of collapsing/expanding nodes. The interest of MindMap is to give an exhaustive / Huge map about a theme, But with the possibility to compact a part of the map during edition. One big advantage is the “multiple node” search tools. Just now missing expand & collapse ;)

Best regards

@carlosdalla:

First: Miro wasn’t and hasn’t the intend to be a MindMapping App - It startet as a collaboration tool Realtimeboard and has a rudimentary MindMapping function inside of it.

This hasn’t changed till now - Its better than it was before but in comparision to all other longer existing MindMapping tools its like comparing WordPad with MS Word: You can’t create a serial-letter out of Wordpad … and whoever had worked with MindManager or iMindMap or XMind knows miro cannot offer the same

But: It offers other tools - so the choice is here to make:
Use it - or ... use other tools.

F.e.
I decided this sunday to create a special document with my old iMindMap version because I come to a faster more timesaving process as if I would create this in Miro - although it hurts deep inside :cry: to do so … but I need a faster, timesaving :date::chart_with_upwards_trend: result - and this is everything thats counts for this document …

Definitely need this feature.  Mind maps help visualize complex nested relationships in order to communicate.  Need to be able to expand/collapse each node to enable effective sharing of the concepts.  

I was looking for a online replacement for Freemind. Saw Miro and thought, man that looks cool. Tried the mind map feature and it doesn’t collapse. Bubble blown, sad face. Do I bother to evaluate the other features when the community has been asking for this for a year? 362 votes and nearly 8,000 views this is obviously a sought after feature.

I’m really busy and need a solution, NOW. I’m going back to Freemind so I can focus on what I was trying to do. Make a mind map. If you can't do it properly, don’t do it!

Interesting that with so many votes the feature still does not exist. Does it take really a year or more to figure out what other mindmap can do? come on? now more then ever people use those online tools, please act

Developers, please tell us at what stage is this function? Let us know at least something!

Six month ago I asked the support about expanding/collapsing nodes on the mind map and they told me that this feature is on the backlog for the developers. Now, a half year later, I am back at the customer where I first encountered Miro and this feature is still not available. @Miro, it would be great to get an update on this.

Collapsable branches please!!

Please take a closer look

 

For sure will pay  if miro have this function
