About the Versions Toolbar

 

When anyone makes a change to your mind map, older versions of the map are saved automatically in the versions toolbar. This is intended to help you: 

 

  • Track edits over time and see the development of your map.
  • See which users made changes to the map and when changes were made.
  • Make copies of older map versions if you wish to store or edit them separately.
  • Restore older map versions in case unintended changes were made or deleted.

Your Mind Map Copy

You can open the copy of the older map version from the prompt at the bottom of the screen. The copy will also appear in My Maps on the dashboard.

Tip!

Rename the map to avoid confusion with the latest version: changes you make to the copy will not be transferred to the original version.

Restoring to an older version will overwrite the mind map at its current state. Do not worry though, you can still view and even restore to previously overwritten content as all of your Versions will be stored in the versions toolbar.
