ResultsManager Tune-Up

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005
I enjoyed a productive ResultsManager coaching session today with Nick Duffill, and Nic Tipler of Gyronix. These guys created the powerful add-in to MindJet's MindManager that allows you to visually manage your projects and actions.

As you know, I'm a big fan of MindManager and MindMaps. I've been working with ResultsManager for some time, however, I've always been aware that I was not using the program to its fullest potential. After today's tune-up, I see several new ways that I can use ResultsManager as a part of my planning process, weekly review, and for project management.

I'd like to eventually integrate ResultsManager and MindManager into the way that I use Lotus Notes so that I can visually map the information in my eProductivity template. The folks at MindJet and Gyronix are supportive of my efforts to do so, and have offered assistance in the process.  Last year, I evaluated a few commercial tools that provide Notes <> MindManager integration. At the time, I did not feel that either was ready for prime time - at least not for what I wanted to do. I'll revaluate both in the coming weeks. Hopefully, I'll have something exciting to show before long.

One neat thing about working with Gyronix team is that they are open to suggestions, and they are responsive. Already, several features that I have recommended have made it into the current product.

If you currently use ResultsManager, be sure to update to the latest version. The new ResultsManager Wizard simplifies many things. If you've never seen or tried ResultsManager, click over to gyronix.com. You can download a 21 day trial of ResultsManager and MindManager from the site.

Eric - what version of RM is the new one?

I'm running 2.5.1 and have been for a while, but it tells me I'm current. An maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not seeing any wizards. Are you running a beta?

Latest version of RM

Rick,

To clear things up, you are running the latest "official release" of ResultsManager, Eric is running ResultsManager 2.6 which we expect to release in the next couple of days (we are making a few subtle changes following our great call with Eric)

I will add a post here when 2.6 is released.

Eric,

Thanks again for your support & great input.
