Brainstorm, outline, share and discuss concepts and idea with mind map and link to UML.
Great ideas come quick and leave as quickly as they come. When brainstorming, having a way to record and organize those ideas can make sure your creativity is well captured. Mind mapping is a tool to help you keep and organize ideas. Ideas are layout in branches, which is extremely reader friendly and can drive you to think of more ideas in detail.
Indicate collapsed nodes in Mind Map diagram by showing the Expand resource icon next to them.
Link related ideas and concepts by using a link connector.
Set icons to nodes to represent different kinds of idea and concepts.
Concentrate on brainstorming without moving between mouse and keyboard. Hotkeys are available for creating mind map solely with keyboard.
Nodes are automatic colored in a way to clearly identify the different branches of ideas.
Record your clients' needs during a meeting through a note-taking feature called "Brainstorm". During the meeting, you create notes in a corkboard -like diagram. When the meeting ends, you can organize the notes and derive a diagram from them.
