The MindMeister Add-on for Google Docs

The MindMeister Add-on for Google Docs

MindMeister, the market-leading online mind mapping and brainstorming solution, today announced the release of a free add-on for Google Docs, enabling users to turn bullet point lists into mind maps and automatically insert them into their documents.

Following the long and successful partnership between Google and MindMeister, which produced integrations in Google Hangouts and Google Drive, among others, MindMeister was invited to create an add-on for Google Docs, Google’s web-based office suite within Google Drive. The add-on is available through Google’s just released add-on store, which allows users to install and manage third-party apps and thus add new features to Google’s free web apps.

“During their design and infrastructure engineering phase, Google reached out to us to discuss a possible MindMeister add-on for Google Docs,” MeisterLabs Managing Director, Till Vollmer said. “We brainstormed a few different angles of how such an add-on could look like and what would add the most value to a Google document. Within about a month we developed a working prototype that would subsequently turn into the add-on available in Google Doc’s add-on store today.”

The MindMeister add-on was built using Google App Script, Google’s Java Script engine in the cloud, and HTML Service, which enables the serving of web pages that can interact with server-side Apps Script functions. The add-on is free and doesn’t require a MindMeister account. Inside a Google document, users can discover it via the new add-on store, and get it with only a few clicks.

“The MindMeister add-on is a neat little app that turns any bullet point list created in the Google document into a visually appealing MindMeister mind map,” Till Vollmer explains. “All the user has to do is select the list and choose the command ‘Insert as Mind Map’ from the add-ons menu. The map that is generated adopts the exact hierarchical structure used in the bullet point list. It appears in the document within a few seconds, after which the user can modify its size, position and other features.”
