Today we’re super psyched to tell you about our newest integration, and one that was long overdue: You can now easily share all your brilliant MindMeister mind maps on Biggerplate, where people from all over the world can find them, view them, leave comments and more.
In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Biggerplate is the home of mind mapping. Their mind map library contains thousands of free mind map templates and mind mapping examples to show how real people around the world are using mind maps every day to improve learning and work more efficiently.
How does it work?
Update: you can find a step-by-step tutorial video at the end of this post.
Sharing your mind maps on Biggerplate is super simple. The first thing you want to do is create an account on Biggerplate, if you don’t have one already.
You can sign up at Biggerplate using your MindMeister account!
The next step is to create a mind map in MindMeister, just like you usually would.
Now, open the Sharing Settings and publish your mind map to the web. Once your map is public, you can use the Biggerplate button at the bottom of the dialogue to share your map with the mind map library.
You will have the opportunity to modify the title of your mind map and add a detailed description before choosing a category for your map.
That’s it – your map is now available on Biggerplate!
If you want, you can also add your map to a matching group. There’s an official MindMeister group, a group for business mind maps, one for marketing and sales, one for MindMeister templates and one for science and education themed maps. Adding a map to one of those groups will help other people find it more easily and get your map more exposure.
