New analysis feature in next MindPlan version: AND/OR support in filter

The next MindPlan version will contain a few new features in the analysis view area of the product.
The most relevant thing is support for AND/OR in the filter selection of an analysis view:

In previous versions, all the filters in the list were automatically concatenated with an AND operation.
Now you have the choice between AND, OR, NOT AND and NOT OR. To build all possible expressions, the filter list is a tree from now on. If you only add one filter to the list, you won't see the difference. But after adding another filter, both appear indented below an AND node.
(For hardcore users: AND/OR can also be nested, there's no limit in depth)

There are also four new filters in the current developer build:

  • resource (company)
  • resource (department)
  • resource (role)
  • resource (group)


With them, you can filter out activities for parts of your organizational structure (defined in the MindPlan configuration database).

On the categorization page, the list of categories has become quiet large and confusing over the years. Many customers asked for some kind of sorting in the list.
So this is how the new list looks like:

In addition to those dialog changes, we also added a refresh functionality to the analysis views. They now check for new data when you press F9, like it's done for normal maps. No need to close/reopen them any more.

Is there some kind of Roadmap or Release-Date ?

Nothing really official at the moment. We're currently doing some proof-of-concept work to evaluate new features and product variants.
The results will have significant influence on our future plans for the product, so please stay tuned here in the blog until we can say more.
In parallel to the proof-of-concept work, we're constantly adding features for MindPlan. More things than I described above. E.g. we're planning to deliver pre-defined analysis views for different project types that will be added to a newly created MindPlan automatically.
We also did some development in C this week to talk to the replication system of Lotus Notes to integrate replication features in the product. The result is a replication function that has a progress displayed and can be interrupted. The interruption feature will likely also be available for the MindPlan search/indexing.
So the next version will be mainly a maintenance release for stability, hopefully less memory consumption and a few new features. I would say it will be released in a few weeks. The official release of the Mac standalone version is also overdue for some time, because it's very stable and production ready.
One of our MindPlan visions (as developers) is a completely flexible and configurable application that can read any kind of data, not just Lotus Notes documents and that can be extended by partners with their own logic and code.
But that will take a while and refactoring work.
What are your favorite features that you would like to be added to MindPlan?

Hello Karsten,
sorry for the late reply.
Nice to know that you're making progress :-)
Favorite features ? Uhhhh, a LOT !
Most of them are already on your list ;-)
Today's most wanted is:
The build-in Icons/Pictures. It's a pain if you are looking for e.g. the flag of Russia. It's always: Too much trees, i can't see the forest :-)
Categorization is the key.

Yes, I understand the problem. Implementing a search or categorization feature isn't a big thing.
Finding categories or keywords for the 2000+ icons in German and English language is the harder part. :-)
The icons come from { <a href="http://www.iconexperience.com/ " target="_blank" title="Link: www.iconexperience.com/ ">Link</a> } (X-Collections). Maybe their overview PDFs can help a bit, until we find a solution for this.
