Functional goal setting isn't as easy as it sounds. In fact, you've probably tried dozens of techniques to achieve that utopian balance of organization and success. You've tried list methods, graphical methods, hierarchical methods, GTD, and yet you still haven't found a system that is truly effective.

Or perhaps you are a member of a multi-disciplinary team and need to accurately communicate your goals, project information, and completion status with others immediately - in a secure, controlled environment.

In either case, Goalscape Connect is the solution you've been seeking.

I like pie. You like pie. Who doesn't like pie? And now, pie is the name of the game when it comes to managing your projects, because Goalscape Connect organizes all of your goals into a dynamic, intuitive, multi-level pie chart. It's beauty lies in it's simplicity -- just take a look at a screenshot to see what I mean.

Getting started is easy. First, enter your goal categories (like "Business travel") then break those categories down into smaller to-do items (like "Book tickets", "Arrange hire car" and "Essential items for every trip"). Each of your categories appears on your Goalscape Connect pie chart -- just click on any one of them to expand it and see your goals and tasks in that category. Simple. Effective. Easy... Pie!

What makes Goalscape Connect superior to other goal management apps is that each of your tasks has a visual context, and you can control this visual context using simple, intuitive on-screen controls. Slide the importance of a goal higher, or drag and drop the corner of its slice: that goal gets larger in proportion to the others. Want to focus more on Web Sales than Direct Calls? Your Goalscape Connect pie chart slice for "New Customers" will reflect that. The goal map itself immediately displays the relative importance of any goal to any other goal.

As well as the Importance slider, Goalscape Connect has a progress slider, which shades in your goals to show how complete they are. Progress entered in bottom-level goals (maybe individual actions) reflects upwards into their parents in proportion to their importance. With Goalscape Connect, you can see your progress in all of your tasks and overall in a single powerful image.

Need more than just text? Goalscape Connect also provides the ability to include additional detailed information as file attachments, including documents, spreadsheets, images, or even video.

Perhaps the best part about Goalscape Connect is the fact that everything is online, allowing instant, full collaboration between team members, regardless of where they are physically located. Just click Share, enter your contacts' Connect usernames and specify their access levels, and voilĂ ! Everyone can see where everyone else is on the goal map - and what they are doing. You can even show your goalscape to the rest of the world by making it 'public' and emailing the URL to whomever you please. Then anyone can view it (read only) even if they do not have a Goalscape Connect account.

And because all the processing and data are online, you can access your projects from any computer, anywhere in the world. Shared projects allow individual access level settings (View, Edit, Admin).

New Features! Goalscape Connect now includes a powerful Goal Chat instant messaging system. It is accessible on individual goals and includes 'in line' attachments and email notification options! And Goalscape Connect feature increased security with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for all server communications.

You can download your projects as DOCX or PDF reports or XLSX or CSV files. There is also a Report Preview screen where you can pre-edit PDF reports (and images) and download to MS Project XML or MindManager MMAP. You can also upload MS Project XML and MindManager MMAP files to see, edit and share them as Connect projects online.

Goalscape Connect is completely compatible with Goalscape Desktop. You can upload goalscapes (with attachments) from Desktop to Connect and download snapshots of your Connect projects and open them in Desktop - or just as backup. (Please note that changes to projects in Desktop apply only to the local .gsp files for those projects, not to the central online version.)

After you purchase Goalscape Connect, it may be used for 6 months.

Bruno Verschraegen Hi Goalscape Team. We purchased Goalscape at the end of 2010 and used it for a while before reverting back to using mindmaps for project creation/tracking purposes. I still find the Goalscape approach very innovating and would eventually like to start using it again. A question specifically for Connect... What happens if two or three of us try to explore and/or update the same file at the same time? Does each person have its own view? How are changes dealt while multiple people are working on the file? Sorry if I overlooked information that is already available on your site, but I searched your Knowledge Base and Discussions and could not find the answers. Keep up the good work!

Richard Parslow Hello Bruno

Thanks for your inquiry.

As long as all the collaborators have their own Goalscape Connect accounts (identified by email address as username) it is fine for everyone to access (and update) the same project at the same time. If two people are in the same goal at the same time, they will both see a warning about making concurrent updates *of the same attribute* (if there is a conflict, the latest change will prevail).

In such situations you can use Goal Chat (per-goal real-time instant messaging) to discuss changes and any conflicts with the other person. Set the email notifications appropriately and anyone involved will receive an email about it; replies to emails will appear as Chat messages.

Enjoy the journey!

Stephen User Does the Goalscape Desktop version include licenses for both a PC and a Mac? I use a PC for work, but have MacBook for the road and at home.

Richard Parslow Hello Stephen

Yes, the Goalscape Desktop license (see BdJ promotion page here: allows you to install and activate the software on two machines concurrently. Since Goalscape Desktop uses Adobe AIR, it does not matter if the two machines use different Operating Systems.

If you are likely to be using more than two machines, or if you want to access the same project(s) on different machines you should use the online version Goalscape Connect, since all your projects are on our secure servers and you will always access the latest version.

The two versions are fully compatible: you can upload your Desktop goalscapes (.gsp files) to Connect and download 'snapshots' of your Connect projects as .gsp files as backups or to access them when you are not online.
