Sometimes mind maps can grow quite fast and get a bit complex. In MindMeister you can quickly turn a large subtopic, with lots of ideas, into its own mind map. You can automatically generate a link to the new map and a back-link to the original. The original map is then used as an overview of topics. We call this an ‘index map’.
One of the biggest benefits of the mind map format is the great overview it provides of a topic. So, creating an index map with multiple related sub maps is a simple way to keep things organized and ensure that maps don’t get too cluttered or too complex.
Linking your mind maps this way will enable you to quickly jump back and forth between maps without having to search for them in the dashboard.
A system of connected maps is ideal for creating business plans, where each branch in the index map represents a department of the company. Each sub map can in turn hold any number of links to sub maps of its own. There is no limit to the number of maps you can connect.

Very usefull indeed – however, the mobile apps (I am speaking about iOS specifically) should use the same logic.
I like it but I want to be able to LINK subtopics from several mind maps into ONE mind map, not simply create a new mind map from a single subtopic. Is that possible.
Hi Don, thanks for your feedback. Maybe you can work around that problem by simply copying the topics in question and inserting them into the new mind map. Once you\’ve done that, you can add links (http://www.mindmeister.com/help/links).
Really important for dashboards to roll up the task % complete from the linked maps. Possible?
Hey Jack, sorry, I\’m not a hundred percent sure what you mean. Could you give us an example?
To be able to link topics to a topic in another map and automatically bring across the percentage complete from the sub map to the first map. Thereby gives the ability to create summary dashboard maps that show the percentage complete on various related or linked maps that contain quite deatiled projects.
