3, Collaborate to edit a mind map file

When a user who satisfies the condition 2 opened a collaborative file, mindv automaticly enters the real time collaboration mode:

  • A file can be opened by many users and be modified by many users at the same time. MindV will combine all the changes according to their happening order;
  • If a topic is modifed by other user, the current user can see the changed topic flashing;
  • If a mindmap's topic text content are all very long, in order to prevent changes by other users at the same time, your teams members had better make a agreement that everyone is responsible for a branch of this mindmap.

In below picture, the "1" topic is being modified by others, so the topic's focus cursor is flashing.


To save a collaborative file:

  • The user who first open and modify a mind map will check out , and will be responsible for saving it;
  • So even if you have modified a mind map, mindv's "Save" button may be still disable. But do not worry, the user who check out will be responsible for saving it.
  • If current user made more than 50 edit actions, mindv will save this mindmap automaticly;
  • Mindv will save every edit action even everyone forget saving this mindmap ; But in order to open this mindmap as quickly as possible, if the save button is enable, be sure to save this mindmap file when you finished it. When you export your mindmap to other format , such as Word,PDF or PPT, mindv will ask you to save all the changes first.

In below picture, in the status bar, it tells that the current mindmap is checked out by user "person", person will be responsible to save this mindmap file, so the other user need do nothing when finish it.
