Search and Filter

1. Search for Mind Maps from Your Dashboard

While you're in your dashboard, you can search for mind maps (their titles) 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 of your maps for the keyword you chose.

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


2. Filter Mind Maps on the Dashboard

Using the navigation bar on the left, you can also filter your mind maps.

Click on "Recents" to show the most recently created mind maps.

Click on "Favorites" to show only mind maps that you've marked as favorite (you can do this by dragging & dropping maps from your map listing onto "Favorites").

Click on "Public" to show only maps that you've made public.

Click on "Trash" to show maps that you've moved into the trash. 


3. Use 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.
