Using OmniFocus with MindNode
November 5, 2020 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
Are you faced with a large project? Do you have more ideas than you know what to do with? Mind mapping can be very helpful.
Before creating projects and actions in OmniFocus, it’s a good idea to have at least some sense of where you’re going and the scope of the work. Mind mapping can be a very helpful way to bring form to scattered ideas and can help make even the loftiest of goals manageable.
Featured App: MindNode
This session features MindNode, a beautifully crafted, intuitive, and highly functional mind mapping app for Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
We make extensive use of MindNode at Learn OmniFocus. Appropriately enough, this session and much of our content began in MindNode. It’s also the app that our friends at The Sweet Setup selected as the best mind mapping app.
Free MindNode Editor and MindNode Plus
MindNode offers a free editor, that includes many of the features that we’ll be showcasing in this session. You also have the option of subscribing to MindNode Plus to tap into their full feature set, which includes Visual Tags, Focus Mode and Quick Entry.
MindNode is available on the App Store (iPhone, iPad) and the Mac App Store. You can upgrade to MindNode Plus through an in-app purchase. MindNode Plus is also included with a Setapp subscription. Visit MindNode’s pricing pagefor more information.
Everyone is welcome. No previous MindNode or mind mapping experience is required.
You’re very welcome to attend even if you’re new to MindNode, and mind mapping in general. This session includes an overview of mind mapping, practical examples of where mind mapping can be very useful, and an introduction to the MindNode app. Most notably, we’ll look at how MindNode can be used alongside OmniFocus.
