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.

@Viet Anh : 100% agree!!

Please add collapsible branch. With out this it just box and arrow. For many use-case where we use Mindmap to document complex process, no branch equal almost no value.

 

I love Miro and will keep paying but please put this feature into development pipeline.

I started a campaign on Linkedin to upvote this feature. See below. If you like/comment on it, more people will see it and we will have more chance to get this to the top of the list, and then HOPEFULLY get this delivered!

Great! Though I’m not using Miro anymore right now because of such limitations: I don’t trust to create a big Mind Map in the hope that basic features will be added...sooner or later…

Still monitoring the App anyway: Miro has lot to offer.

@Farkas Imre :

A very good idea!

After 1 year this basic feature is still missing.

Too bad!

As the others, I really find that feature fundamental. Have you some news about the release time ? It sincerely prevents my team from going on a paid licence as we rely on huge mind-maps for work.

 

I hope the dev team can add it as soon as possible, it would be game changing.

 

Thanks in advance

Please add this feature, it is a must for mind maps...


It is not a must for MindMaps:

It is a standard functionality in MindMapping-tools like

fontsize changing in a Writing - Tool like MS Word is standard.

As long as it is not included you cannot call Miro a MindMapping tool …

Imagine Word without fontsize changing … Would you use it for writing …?

Any idea when would the collapsible feature be available ?

Hey, thanks for your feedback! In fact, it’s very timely –  we’re researching how we can improve mind map right now :) 

This research is taking a lot!!!!! Ufff…..
Would me amazing positioning yourself as a company if this feature would be or not be available for use!
a little clarity and transparency is basic to develop a relation with your customers!
I would love a feedback from the product team!

This seems like a very basic convenience feature. I hope you can add this on time. We would like to get rid of our separate mind mapping tool.


 

Guys, this is really disappointing. Mind maps without the ability to collapse nodes are difficult to manage.
I'm using another tool for Mind Mapping. This is frustrating.

Just adding to the long list above that we need this feature…just got asked for this by an Exec, embarrassed that it didn't have it especially since i've just convinced them to invest in an enterprise licence :/

For sure will pay  if miro have this function

Please take a closer look

 

Collapsable branches please!!

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.

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

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

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!

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.

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".

@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 …

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
