Create User Groups Within Your Team

Only Business team admins can create user groups

Organize your team into user groups to quickly share mind maps with specific departments, squads or sub-teams within your organization. 

What are User Groups?

Creating user groups allows you to quickly share mind maps with a specific group of users within your team.

User groups are particularly useful for larger teams, as it allows them to:


  • Quickly share or un-share mind maps with multiple team members at once.
  • Streamline the onboarding process. When new employees join your team they can be added to a specific user group, granting them immediate access to all mind maps shared with this group.


Create user groups for different departments, regional offices, leadership groups or sub-teams within your organization.
