What is MeisterTask?
MeisterTask is a secure online task management tool that integrates with MindMeister via the Meister Suite. Use MeisterTask in tandem with MindMeister to turn your brainstorming sessions into actionable tasks and to-dos.
In order to link and create tasks in your notes, you'll need to be logged in to both MindMeister and MeisterTask (with the same account). Users of MeisterTask Basic can create and manage three projects completely free of charge.
Visit the MeisterTask homepage to find out more and start managing your team's projects and tasks!
Create a Task out of a Mind Map Topic
Once you've logged into both MindMeister and MeisterTask (with the same email address), you can easily turn any mind map topic into an actionable task:
- Right-click the topic you'd like to turn into a task.
If you don't have a right mouse button, select the topic and click the ellipsis (...) which appears.
- Click the Actions icon.
- Click Task.
- In the next windows, choose a project, section and assignee for your new task.
- Your new task is now created in MeisterTask. Changes made in MeisterTask will also be immediately synced to your mind map.
Tasks created from MindMeister take the following form:
The name of your mind map topic will become the task name
Notes attached to the topic will be added to the task description
A link to the connected mind map will be displayed on the right side of the task window under “Integrations.”
View, Edit and Open Linked Tasks
Once you've created a task out of a mind map topic, the task assignee's user avatar will be displayed in the topic bubble. To open and edit a linked task, click this user avatar and select Open Task from the pop-up window.
