Mindjet 11 for Windows now includes an AutoCalc function. This allows you to perform a few statistical rather than mathematical operations on the topic properties of subtopics and display the results in the topic properties of the parent topic (easier to see below!). You can display the sum, average, count, maximum and minimum values.
You cannot perform arithmetic functions e.g. price x quantity or price + tax or price – discount. Use the Mindjet Spreadsheet or Insert Excel Range to display these type of calculations.
The basics are:
- Create a parent topic and the subtopics the calculation is to be based on.
- Apply AutoCalc to the parent topic, create the value and calculation type.
- Edit the subtopic properties to add values and see the result.
- Add more properties and edit value names if required.
