What is a smart mind map?

A mind map is a diagram that shows the relationships between content items. Smart mind maps provide users with a way to map out, edit, and repeat similar content as map items. Smart mind maps offer less customization than combining icons with text boxes, but enable users to more efficiently add and edit repetitive content.

Overview of mind maps

  • Easily add shapes (the mind map layout automatically updates to accommodate new shapes)

  • Lines are connected to shapes (no need to manually adjust lines after moving shapes)

  • Copy/paste styles (easily update the style of a mind map by copying styles from one shape and applying them to other shapes)

Where can I find the smart mind map?

You can find smart templates by searching for the word "smart template" and then scrolling. Look out for the green Smart Template label. Click here to access all the smart templates.
