H'lo


It's great having a community space again, but it strikes me that you're limiting us to raising problems with the software or ideas of how to improve it. Granted these are the 2 most important things that a software company should concern itself with but I believe that it would good to have a discussion / chat area where things could be raised and mulled over by the userbase.


It would give us a space to share knowledge and work out problems that are not necessarily defects nor well-developed enough to become an idea to be worked on.


What do you think?


Regards

James.

Hello James

From my perspective I don't think this forum is limited to a problems or suggestions channel between Corel and MindManager users. There are many "how can I..." posts, and people almost always get responses from the community. The MindManager community has a much better chance of answering these than they do with product problems, as bugs can only be properly resolved by the developers. Maybe the answer would be to add a few more discussion categories that are not product-specific but relate to higher level topics such as project management, strategic planning and so on.

Morning Nick

I think we're in agreement. You're correct there are many "how can I..." posts, and people do almost always get responses from the community. So, together we are creating a discussion format - I just think it would be good to formalise that in creating a channel to put those discussions into.

I do like your suggestion of more discussion categories that are not product-specific but relate to higher-level topics such as project management, strategic planning, etc. Important to have a General category for questions and discussions that do not fit easily into other categories.

Hi everyone - thanks very much for the feedback. We're continually looking for new ways to improve the community. You're right that it could be beneficial to offer a discussion category. It's something we discussed prior to launching the community, but our plan was to keep it simple and have discussions fit under the questions section. We've had a number of suggestions come in and we are evaluating ways to evolve the platform. Of course any changes will take time, but there is a lot of discussion ongoing about possible future changes. Stay tuned!
