How to Navigate the Dashboard


The dashboard is your “home screen” in MindMeister and where all your mind maps are stored. The left-hand toolbar includes options to filter your map library and access map templates.

This walkthrough video explains everything you need to know about the dashboard:



Switch from Map Thumbnails to List View


Your maps are displayed as thumbnails by default. To change how your maps are displayed:


  1. Click on the 3 lines to view your library in list view.
  2. Click on the 4 squares to return to thumbnail view.

Change Background Color


You can customize your dashboard background. To do this:


  1. Click on the ellipses in the top-right corner of the screen.

  2. Choose a new background color.


Sort Maps


In list view, you can sort your maps: 


  • Alphabetically (Click 'Name' in the header.) 
  • By the date they were last modified (Click 'Modified' in the header.) 


The order will be retained if you switch back to the thumbnail grid.
