As always, this Thursday I clicked on to mindmup.com to get to the tool and opened a map for my mob to use as note taking tool while demoing mob testing.
The tool had been updated to a visually new version, which mildly annoyed me, but I take that as just not liking tools I like change. There were no problems during the session, the group created a map and all was fine.
After the session, I proceeded to do what I always do: save the map in my gdrive collection of maps different sessions have created. And I couldn't do it - all I was getting was an upsetting info of buying Mindmup Gold.
That sparked both a tweet of frustration that Mindmup twitter account quickly picked up without hashtags or mentions.
Later, I was forced to pair with a friend to "solve my problem with saving the mind map". I wasn't particularly happy. I just wanted to change tools. In the world of options, I felt it was time to move on. If nothing else, the pairing revealed two things:
- Where I went wrong with ending up with a map I couldn't save as I wanted to
- How to work around not being able to save as I wanted to
