Write protect parts of maps?

Hello dear community,

we have designed mindmaps where the users only have to mark elements in different colours
or have to set / remove checkboxes or change progress icons on mindmap branches.
They don't need to change anything else in the files
so we would like to set a write protection to most parts of the mindmaps.

Is it possible to protect an entire map (except a small number of elements)? How can we do this?

We would be glad if you could help us.
Thank you!
yours,
Daniel

Later versions have "Contributor permissions" in File > Info > Content Control settings. This lets you define which information can be edited in the map, but applies across the whole map and not just selected topics. I don't know if this was available in MM18 though.

As you have a group of users who are part of your team, your company most likeley has a Mindmanager Enterprise license for sufficient users.

This means that you are entitled to use the latest version (vs 22). That has as Nick states, a lot of extra's.Your systems admin has received the instructions how to upgrade to the latest version.

Also consider using a dashboard map with submaps that are maintained by other users, and use the suggestions Nick made.
At dashboard level you will always have the complete overview via map roll-ups etc.

Hello Ary, hello Nick D,

thank you for your answers!

I am the administrator - so I should quickly do an update to the newest version :-/.

I will try out the solutions you told me about as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help!
