HOw do I get this content, and its titles and folder names print to PDF to share with my team?
I appreciate the complexity, having worked and programmed many collaboration systems all the the way back to Lotus Notes and SharePoint. Discussion threads become important as well.
To be clear, some kind of input and output is being thought about, because people have quite a lot of notes in various mind managers or bullet lists that it would be nice to especially import.
Understood. Collaboration method is fine when available. The fallback of installing Causality to open a read-only version is OK.
There's currently no way to share the research area. Of course, when collaboration is ready, you could simply bring people in as guests.
But on printing, it's not 100% clear how to actually do this, because there's potentially a LOT of information in there, including multiple versions of beats, and later, multiple document types in parallel. I have some doubts that the output is useful, because it would be like sending people a phone book that they would struggle to dig information out of. If you've ever tried to export a mindmap to a linear document like Word, your eyes just glaze over, a linear format is not good at presenting tree-information unless it's very short.
I agree that it would be nice to be able to output something. But I think it would work best when you're restrained in what is being exported. Including the beat text with versions, for example, will instantly turn this into a 200 page document that nobody actually reads.
I think that collaboration is the best way to share this kind of information, because it isn't overwhelming. Perhaps, in the meanwhile, send people the Causality file and tell people to open it in the free version. They'll be able to navigate all of it, they just won't be able to modify it.
