Search and Filter

1. Searching for Mind Maps from Your Dashboard

While you're in your dashboard, you can search for mind maps (their titles and descriptions) as well as keywords that are contained within your mind maps. 

Simply navigate to the search field at the top right of your dashboard and enter the keyword you're looking for.

As a first step, MindMeister will search the titles and descriptions of your maps for the keyword you chose.

If you want to search the content of your mind maps, switch from "Title and Description" to "Contents".


2. Using the Search Field Within a Mind Map

While inside the map editor, you can use the key shortcut Ctrl+F to search your mind map, or simply click into the search field in the upper right corner of the screen and type in your search term.


If you click on the small triangle next to the magnifying glass, a dropdown menu will open where you can specify what you want to search for:

Idea caption: This searches the text within topics.

Editing user: If you type in the name of one of your map's collaborators, this option highlights all topics that were edited by that particular user.

Task owner: This highlights all tasks assigned to a specific user.

Icon: This searches the map for specific icons used within topics.
