mindjet_mm_logo_sm.png Your Mindjet Account

In a Mindjet Account, you are assigned a role that defines your rights within the account for using maps and files.  You can be a user in multiple accounts - your own, and other accounts that you have been invited to.

When you sign up for Mindjet, you create a Mindjet Profile, which contains your basic information, your email preferences, and your password. You can update your profile and manage your account(s) online using the Mindjet web app.

What do you want to do?


Understand account roles


Mindjet Accounts have an Owner, Administrators (optional), Members, and Guests.

Note: Your role in the account, and your access rights for items within the account determine your ability to use certain online features in Mindjet.  If performing an action is not permitted, the command will be disabled.  (For complete information about the different permission levels, see Understand access rights.)

Manage your account and account users

To view the details for the accounts you belong to:

  1. In the Mindjet window menu, choose Share >  Account Management.

  2. In the Mindjet Files window menu, choose Account Management.

The Mindjet web app will start in your browser, and when you log in it will display the Account Management page. You can manage the account's details and users. Your ability to use the account management features depends on your role in the account.

Log out or work offline

To enable online features in Mindjet for Mac, you log in.

When you want to disconnect from Mindjet, you have two choices:

Your choice will depend on whether you still want to access local copies of your maps and files. Mindjet creates local copies of online Mindjet Files that you can edit offline when you check out a document. It also caches a local copy that you can view (read-only) when you view or edit a document from Mindjet Files.

Log out

If you are using a shared computer, you can protect your Mindjet Accounts from unauthorized access by logging out of Mindjet before you close Mindjet for Mac. By default, Mindjet remembers your login settings. You can set a preference to change this to protect your account.

The connection indicator on the main menu changes to mjcoffline_32x32.png (disconnected).

When you log out, your login settings are cleared, and any locally-cached copies of your documents are deleted. (Documents are cached by Mindjet when you view or edit them.) You retain local copies of documents you have checked out.

To re-connect to Mindjet you must log in again.

Note: If you are using a shared computer, you should also disable the automatic log-in preference for Mindjet Files under Mindjet > Preferences.

Work offline

If you want to continue working on maps and files that you have checked out, or view the cached copies of maps and files, you should use the Work Offline feature:

The connection indicator changes from mjcconnected_32x32.png (connected)  to mjcoffline_32x32.png (disconnected).

In offline mode, the locally-cached copies of maps and files are retained, and you can still use the commands in the Mindjet Files window. Items that have not been cached are grayed to show that they are disabled in this mode. Items that have been cached (that you can view or edit) are shown in normal type.

You can edit and save maps and files that you have checked out, and you can check them in when you re-connect to your account. Other users cannot edit these documents while you have them checked out.

You can also view any other maps and files that you have cached. Note that these local copies may be out of date: they were created automatically the last time you viewed or edited the map or file, which may have been edited subsequently by another user.

The connection indicator changes from mjcoffline_32x32.png (disconnected) to mjcconnected_32x32.png (connected).
