What is the difference between "Express" and "Power User" modes?
Express Mode has simpler dialogues and fewer options. Power User mode has more choices in the dialogues and options: Power User Mode enables access to the following features:
My recently used maps list in the File menu is scrambled
MindManager keeps track of recently used maps, and displays a list in the File menu so that you can reopen the latest ones without browsing. Unfortunately, when ResultsManager visits a series of maps during the creation of a Dashboard map, MindManager remembers these instead and overwrites your recently used list with the maps that ResultsManager has accessed. So each time you generate a Dashboard with ResultsManager, the recently used maps list is effectively trashed. The workaround is to make sure that you have links in the "My Maps" task pane for maps that you use frequently, so that you don't need to rely on the recently used list in the File menu. Refer to the MindManager documentation for details of using the My Maps task pane.
When I press F1 for help, MindManager help appears as well
This is a known issue that we hope to resolve in a future version. Just close the MindManager help window to see the ResultsManager help window.
Can ResultsManager be used together with MiniProject from MindManuals.com?
Yes. To use it with MiniProject, you should
as MiniProject does not understand either of these features. You should explicitly assign owners and categories as required per task, then MiniProject can be used to calculate schedules for project networks, and ResultsManager will use the dates that MiniProject calculates in its dashboards.
MiniProject is less useful for scheduling Dashboards as they contain little information about the logic of projects (predecessors and successors), and usually only contain next actions.
Can ResultsManager be used together with other Project Management applications?
Yes. The primary difference between the way that ResultsManager normally interprets maps, and the way that other project-management tools understand MindManager maps is that ResultsManager uses the "Funnel Timeline" layout.
This can be turned off so that ResultsManager does not calculate next actions from the subtopics of an activity. Change to Power User mode, click the ResultsManager tab | Options group | Options | ResultsManager Options | Dashboard Options and disable the "Funnel Timeline" option. ResultsManager will now behave as follows:
ResultsManager has stolen some of my Icons!
In addition to its own custom Icons for Projects and Results , ResultsManager also uses some of the stock MindManager Icons for its own purposes. These are:
When the Edit or Dashboard commands are used, ResultsManager steals these Icons and renames them if they are already in use in your map. You will find them in the Map Markers set after using the Edit or Dashboard commands.
If you have already used these icons for other purposes in your maps, you will need to reassign them to avoid confusion. The Map Markers task pane in MindManager makes this easy.
ResultsManager will not open some maps because "lock files" exist
If you are using Shared maps in ResultsManager Professional Edition, ResultsManager will not open maps where a lock file already exists, because another user could already be editing it. If this is not correct, i.e. if a lock file has been left behind by an early termination of MindManager, or by failure to use the command File | Close and unlock shared map (when using private lock files, with MindManager X5 and 6 only), then the solution will depend on the locking scheme you are using:
None of the above applies if you are using ResultsManager Standard, or if you are not using any shared locations.
The keyboard shortcuts do not work reliably
(MindManager X5 and 6 only). For the keyboard shortcuts to work, the required command must be visible in the MindManager menu. This may not be the case if you have MindManager configured to only show the most recently used commands. To ensure that the keyboard shortcuts always work, click Tools | Customize | Options and check the option "Always show full menu".
