Our integration with iMindMap (the only Mind Mapping software endorsed by the inventor himself, Tony Buzan) is taken to another level with the most advanced version of the software launching soon. In iMindMap 9 you’ll experience the responsiveness of an all-in-one digital workspace, where you can explore all corners of your mind and let your ideas run wild before launching them into action in DropTask. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect to see in iMindMap 9…
With four visualization views (Fast Capture, Brainstorm, Mind Mapping and Presentation) iMindMap 9 goes hand-in-hand with the visually captivating nature of DropTask – making them the ideal duo for visual thinking and boosting creativity. With the ability to seamlessly synchronise between views you’ll be able to find the perfect outlet for any stage of your creative process.
Sometimes, moments of inspiration and break-through ideas occur when we least expect them. In iMindMap 9, you’ll be able to capture your ideas effortlessly with the all-new Fast Capture View. Using cutting-edge technology, this view provides a tangible space for your ideas to flow instantly and the self-organizing bubbles mean that your distractions will be kept to a minimum.
The Brainstorm View is back – and this time its design is even more innovative and powerful than ever before.
With a range of new customization and formatting options such as canvas backgrounds, a smart clean-up function, and relationship arrows and icons to visually categorize ideas, you can bring order to your brainstorm while giving it that special personal touch. There’s also a brand-new Outline Panel (available in Fast Capture, Brainstorm and Mind Map View), which will display your work in list format so you can easily organize and access ideas.
iMindMap 9 lets you share and save work in more places than ever before by introducing new integrations with Evernote, Google Drive and Dropbox. And let’s not forget the two-way integration with DropTask PRO, allowing you to export your DropTask projects into iMindMap if you’re looking to refocus your energy on further brainstorming and Mind Mapping.
A great idea is just a great idea until you act on it. By integrating iMindMap with DropTask PRO, you can transform free-flowing ideas from iMindMap Ultimate into tasks that can to be actioned in DropTask. With our refreshingly visual and fluid approach towards task management, you can envision the finish line like never before. Use practical and powerful features in time management, collaboration, and prioritization to manage your overall project with ease, and give focus to the areas that need it the most.

We’ve all been there, we receive an email that needs to be actioned, but before we know it a whole stream of new emails come flooding in and we lose sight of those to-dos from earlier emails as they get pushed down our inbox. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a way for us to manage our emails in an easy and productive way?
Well now there is, with our brand new DropTask for Outlook integration feature, which has already undergone early beta testing by some of our PRO users. DropTask PRO user Lori Junkins, gave us her thoughts on the beta, “This new integration gives me the functionality I need to be able to handle everything at once, saving me time and making it even easier to manage my tasks. I love it!”
When you have DropTask for Outlook installed you can ensure that no more of your to-dos get lost or forgotten about in your ever-increasing inbox, instead send them straight to DropTask where they will transform into tasks and wait for you to put them to action. Sounds simple, right? But how exactly does it work? Well DropTask does all the hard work for you, so when you transform an email from Outlook, the email subject will automatically become the task title and the body of the email will become the task description, but that’s not all…
It’s always the way, everything comes at once; which can make managing your emails a bit of a balancing act. With the ability to select and transform up to 50 emails at once, you really can save time and manage your mail when you integrate your Outlook account with DropTask.
So you’ve been sent an email that requires action, the next thing to do is decide where it belongs. You can choose to send it to an existing project or if it’s the start of something new, you can even create a new project to send it too – all from within Outlook. Get even more organized with your emails by sending them straight into a new or existing group, all without leaving your mailbox!
Set Task Attributes
Some emails require more attention than others, that’s why it’s important to recognise this so that we can correctly organize our workload and put our time where it is needed most. With DropTask for Outlook you can select the attributes for your email as you create the task. You can set the urgency, importance, effort and due date and then when you send the task to DropTask the visual indicators for these attributes will automatically update on the task.
If you’re using DropTask PRO, ensure nothing gets left behind in your inbox by sending your email attachments straight to DropTask. Having everything in one place makes way for a more productive workspace, where all you have to do is go to that task and everything related to it will be sat waiting for you.
Ensure that you stay on top of your mailbox and your workload by seamlessly integrating DropTask and Outlook. For more information on how to get started, take a look at our support article which will help guide you through the installation process.
Google Tasks sync may be enabled for any one of your DropTask projects. All tasks in your Google Tasks account will be copied into the project, and vice versa. Any changes made on either will then be synchronized between the two.
