automated timeline using excel
is there any way to create a more or less complex timeline in mindmanager fully automated using Excel as a database?
What we want to do is the following:
We identified workflows as well as responsibilities within our company and need to illustrate them. Since these are not finally yet and perhaps never will be, this needs to be dynamic as well as automated in a certain way.
Unfortunately the data is quite complex, it provides for instance information about working packages together with some meta information like "who is responsible and does what in advance" "who is responsible and does what afterwards" "which information is needed to perform work package" "which information is beeing delivered by work package" and so on. All these infos need to appear in a hierarchy corresponding to our companies structure. Finally I would like to import an .xlsm file and create the map automatically.
Since we tried that in MS Visio and are not finally satisfied whith the representation of the data we decided to give mindmanager a try because it looks much better.
Is the above described possible?
