For the past several months I have been using MindView 3 Business Edition for some of the projects that I have been working on and have had a chance to delve into the Calculation feature. While the Calculation feature is powerful it may not be initially intuitive to figure out, for the first time user. Once you get the hang of it and understand how it works you will see just how powerful it is and how it can help you budget and estimate the cost of your projects. Not only can you enter values into your branches but you can create formulas with those defined values that automatically calculate for you that can be rolled up to help you look at the big picture. Since a picture is worth at least a thousand words, I thought it would be easier to show you how to use the Calculation feature in MindView 3 by creating this short screen cast. Click here to view the screencast. Having entered values into your mind map then gives you the option to Export these values to Excel which generates a complete report. So take the time to look at the video and let me know what you think. I think you will see the value in learning how to enter values into your mind map which is great for costing out projects that you may be working on.
