Your Mindjet Account

What do you want to do?

Note: The online features Mindjet Files and Mindjet Tasks are no longer offered to new customers. However, if you have a MindManager Plus, Mindjet for Business, or ProjectDirector account, you can turn them on using Options.

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 ProjectDirector web app.

Log out or work offline

To enable online features in MindManager for Windows, 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. MindManager 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 MindManager for Windows. By default, MindManager remembers your login settings. You can set an option to change this to protect your account.

  1. On the bottom status bar, click .

  2. In the menu, click Log Out of Mindjet Files.

  3. The button changes to .

When you log out, your login settings are cleared, and any locally-cached copies of your documents are deleted. (Documents are cached by MindManager 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.

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:

  1. In MindManager desktop, on the bottom status bar, click .

  2. In the menu, click Work Offline.

  3. The button changes to .

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 Mindjet.

You can also view any maps and files that you have cached locally (as indicated in the Mindjet Files window Files list). 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.

By default, MindManager remembers your username and password and logs you in to your account automatically. You can set an option to change this.
