Olympic Unlimited has released a new version of their Microsoft Word export add-in for Mindjet 14, MindManager map files.
Named WordX, this add-in allows you to assign a specific Word template, mark topics for export then export your map.
As many of you already know, I use Mindjet 14 (MindManager) extensively to document SharePoint designs. The built-in export tools, found in Mindjet 14, do work but they provide limited functionality. I need the ability to specifically mark topics for export and assign specific export attributes.
I have exercised WordX extensively, with maps containing more than 5000 topics, and it works like a charm!
If you are a Mindjet user, this is a must have add-in.
I will write more on this topic in the near future. In the meantime, download a trial copy and give it a shot. I think you’ll be hooked…
The Silicon Valley SharePoint User Group (SVSPUG) would like to invite you to our next meeting:

SharePoint 2013 Collaboration in the Cloud – Office 365
In this session, – Ulysses Lugwig, will discuss the following topics:
Office 365 has come out strong in 2013 with many organizations choosing to add Office 365 in their enterprise agreements with Microsoft. Where SharePoint 2010 and 2013 on premise both have promising features for external collaboration, many companies instead use box or dropbox due to firewall limitations, security, and complex forms based authentication that simply make SharePoint too complex. However, with this surge in Office 365 subscriptions, now pushing 100 million users’, there’s an incredible opportunity to start using SharePoint as an external collaborative tool. In this presentation we will show you real world examples of how organizations are using Office 365 for external collaboration including items such as branding, automatic document uploading, external sharing caveats, and, of course, custom application development.

Join us at the Silicon Valley SharePoint User Group, on February 20, to learn more about SharePoint 2013 App Model development techniques. Brian Prigge, from Ramp, will be delivering our session, discussing how to leverage SaaS applications using the SharePoint 2013 app model.
This should be an interesting and informative discussion; we hope to see you there!
|Speaker:||Brian Prigge (Ramp)|
|Topic:||Leveraging SaaS Applications Using the SharePoint App Model|
|Description:||Historically, SaaS applications have been disparate causing end user confusion and leading to poor user acceptance. With that advent of SharePoint 2013 and the new App Model, developers can bring those applications under one roof in either SharePoint Online or SharePoint Server without disenchanting end-users or frightening the IT pros. As with any new development model, there are significant benefits, but also significant challenges. I’ll review experiences from real-world projects and how to integrate SAAS services with SharePoint 2013. Attendees will learn important tips and best practices for how to leverage the App Model to augment a SharePoint Server 2013 or SharePoint Online environment, while maintaining a consistent look and feel, emphasizing searchability, and ensuring security.|
