Mind Map Sharing Permissions

When you add people to your Mind Map you can control how they interact with the content. You can make these choices when first creating the Mind Map, and you can update them at any time in the settings.


The options are:

Admin - These users can make any changes to the Mind Map, as well as rename the Mind Map and invite and remove others.

Default - By default a user can edit and create branches. You can change the default settings so that default users cannot delete other people's branches and cannot invite other users to the Mind Map.

Read-Only - The user will be able to view the Mind Map but cannot make any edits to the Mind Map.
