    Any I can find:
    - overview of topics (learning)
    - overview of incidents (troubleshooting)
    - knowledgesharing
    - Brainstorming

    Pros

    - great feature set
    - elaborate shortcut set (quick entering data)
    - great options to use visual indicators (Icons, numbers, etc.) in the mind maps
    - good export options
    - pleasing visual appearance
    - normal file management, so easy to organize multiple mind maps

    Cons

    is replaced by cloud option - that is not supporting the greatest parts of the feature set in iMindMap yet. Zooming and keeping the overview can be a little challenging, but nothing compared to the benefits of the solution

    I am the director of a national supercomputing facility and Ayoa helps me to plan all the activities that are associated with funding applications, day-to-day management, strategic planning and the supervising of my phd students. I also use it for personal planning such as holidays, etc.

    Pros

    The "now, next, soon" planning feature; ability to create tasks from e-mail.

    Cons

    I actually preferred the old name (droptask).

    I tried using Ayoa for a couple of months but have reverted to using Imindmap 11

    Pros

    The promise of combining a robust task manager to a mind mapping solution

    Cons

    Online only, unable to work while offline.. I use mindmap 11 a lot while flying.
    Limited map formating
    When creating a task from a mind map, the created task is a stand-alone and is not referenced to the project or mind map.
    Storing and accessing maps online

    Response from OpenGenius

    Hi Colin, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Sorry to hear that Ayoa isn't currently meeting your needs. But good news! Organic Mind Mapping (much like the iMindMap Maps you're familiar with) are coming to Ayoa very soon - keep an eye out over the next few weeks...
    In terms of working offline, Ayoa is a cloud-based app, the data is stored online rather than locally and you will require the internet to log in. Once you've logged in you can work offline. However, until you go online again, none of that data can be synced to the servers. This means that anything you have updated wouldn't be updated on other devices until you connect to the internet and the information is synced.
    Working offline can be really useful for when you're on the move or working in an area with an unreliable network, however, to get the most out of Ayoa I would recommend ensuring that you connect regularly to ensure your data is is synced. Hope that helps :)

    I can easily go to Ayoa to quickly check off a task and get an idea of what my tasks for the day are. Adding how urgent and important is a great feature to prioritise when I manage to use it better.

    Pros

    Easy to use interface combining Mind maps with task boards.
    High level of detail and ability to attach files to tasks.

    New Gantt chart feature now in task mode as well as planner means you don't have to add tasks to the planner to see a broad view of deadlines.

    Easy to add and complete a checklist too!

    Cons

    At first having to go to the home page before navigating to another mode was a minor inconvenience but now that the buttons are in the navigation bar that is now irrelevant!

    Sometimes in the Gantt chart it can be hard to identify deadline times for short-term tasks

    Response from OpenGenius

    Hi Anthony, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. It's great to hear you're enjoying using Ayoa and our new feature, Gantt Timeline. I'll be sure to pass your feedback onto the team. :)

    A wonderful tool that we have incorporated into the heart of our business - indispensable to how I work.

    Pros

    SEARCH! SHARING! I compared ALL of the various options on the market, and after spending a long time evaluating each one, Ayoa - which started as a complete unknown - ended up taking the prize.

    We then converted 400 mind-maps into their system, and have been enjoying the new features and working with the development team.

    Cons

    On more than one occasion, a bug has caused some topics to be lost while copying/pasting - this is very intermittent, but has happened.
    I would LOVE a better export/backup option - years worth of work are now contained within the product, and having a good backup would make my anxiety decrease a lot!

    Alternatives Considered
