just found Goalscape and like it a lot.
Can I buy either online and/or offline and export a file so I can import it into other, so I can work online with a friend and download it to my desktop if I need?
I think I most like to use a desktop version but on occasion might want to share online, by exporting the file and uploading online.

Thanks for your inquiry.
The Goalscape Desktop license includes a 6-month Unlimited subscription for the Goalscape Online web application. So if you buy a Goalscape Desktop license you will indeed be able to sign in to Goalscape Online to create (or upload) an unlimited number of projects of unlimited size and share them with as many people as you like.
When you share a project with a new user, that will create a new Free user account for the invitee: that person will receive an email with a secure link to set their own password and sign in to the project. You can even give new Free users Edit access to shared projects (1 large editable project per Free user).
The Goalscape Desktop license is perpetual: for the one-time payment of $60.00 you can use the standalone software for life. When your initial 6-month Goalscape Online Unlimited subscription expires you will need to renew it in order to maintain the full functionality and project sharing facilities in Goalscape Online.
Enjoy the journey!

I'm still wondering, when I make a Goalscope on my desktop can I export and upload to the online version, I presume yes because you said so.
But can you tell me when it is altered on the online version, can I export back into my desktop, I don't think you addressed that.

In Goalscape Online you can upload projects (.gsp files) that you have created in Goalscape Desktop using the 'up into the cloud' button at top left of the screen (see screenshot).
You can also use the 'down from the cloud' button to download your online projects as .gsp files that you can work on offline using Goalscape Desktop.
Note though that there is no automatic sync between Goalscape Desktop and Goalscape Online. So if you edit a project offline and re-upload it, you will need to do your own version control and impact analysis (tip: include a datestamp in the main goal name to differentiate the versions in Goalscape Online; and use the same datestamp in the corresponding .gsp filename).
All the best

yes of course I was expecting that, just wanted to confirm.
It's an amazing product - absolutely love it.
I wasn't able to make any of the text clickable - but would like to be able to link to web pages - any clickable links about / now or in the future?

Thanks for the great feedback!
If you are asking about using hyperlinks in the Notes field for a goal, the steps to do this are:
To use the link you need to click it then select Change > Test this link.
In Goalscape Online, you can also use hyperlinks in Goal Comments. Simply paste the URL into a Reply field: it will appear in the Comment history as a link that you can activate with a single click. You can use this facility to link between goals in different areas of your project – or in completely different projects.
If there is anything else you need to know please post again.
Enjoy the journey!

of course once again I should have guessed.
The most amazing interface, very excited! I can think go many uses, my lucky day. I found it https://michaelhyatt.com/7-apps-to-help-you-achieve-your-goals-and-build-new-habits.html scroll to comments Toni Koranic mentions it.

Great list! My favorite goal management app is GoalScape (http://www.goalscape.com). Goalscape's mindmap-like features provide a snapshot of all the goals and sub-goals, their relative importance, and progress achieved. In addition, you can set date triggers, notifications, and add notes and attachments - all within a single visual diagram. Using Goalscape Connect, others can collaborate on the goalscape, a feature that's especially useful for coaching. Thanks!

I did check this app out and initially planned on reviewing it. It is visually stunning. However, I couldn’t quite get the hang of it. I felt the graphical interface was a bit gimmicky. Maybe it’s just that my mind works in a different way. Thanks for your comment.
Well I took to it like a duck to water! It's gong to be used every 5 minutes by me. My number #1 best program. No I'm not looking for a discount, you can put the price up after I purchase.

Thanks very much for the additional background.
Yes, Tony Krasnic was an early adopter of Goalscape – I hadn't seen that post from him though. Funny that Michael Hyatt described Goalscape's UI as "gimmicky"! We have found that most people 'get it' straight away: those who do not may pick it up later – often after realising how good it is for communicating complex concepts with others who do get it immediately.
Interestingly too, although Hyatt describes them as 'apps to help you achieve your goals', the 7 he recommends all seem to be basic task management or GTD apps (most with simple text-based interfaces), rather than goal management solutions that display priorities, detailed plans and progress (as of course Goalscape does).
There are indeed many different ways you can use Goalscape, depending on your goals and the subgoal structure you choose. You may find some interesting ideas in our Blog/News page.
May you achieve great goals!
PS May we quote you?

• The online buttons, information and help are cool.
• the cool hyperlink feature - pasting a URL into the Reply field - but it's not on desktop - of course, if this feature is used online, and then exported to desktop, does it continue to work?
Instead of duck to water (a bit cliche) It's made for me. I've been waiting all my life :) I have to dedicate a monitor so it's with me all the time. I like it so much I bought the company. Take your pick. And because the nice hyperlink isn't on the desktop, I want to ask politely for an online lifetime price, please.
Michael just probably doesn't want to change - the elephant is happy tied to the little stake - and Goalscape probably looks like a spaceship in comparison - but if you want to sell more - have you got a marketing plan? If I may say, you need someone uniquely qualified - who knows the software and has the marketing skills. Not easy to come by someone who is excited as I am who can internet market and bring into focus that special "Aha!" moment. Gee I wonder.
I'd like to suggest a different kind of hyperlink feature, but it's definitely late here in Australia.

As far as the way hyperlinks work is concerned, we are constrained by the functionality available in the Adobe rich text format.
When you download an online project, all Goal Comments are captured in a custom Notes field called Chat Backup (to be renamed to Comment Backup in the next software update). The text in this field is unformatted.

Hello RiHello Richard!
yes it was late last night 4.00 AM!
All joking aside, I have been using computers since the mid 80's and have given up many times using spreadsheet type organisers and resorted to make-shift solutions, but every now and then I "really" need to find a solution - so yesterday I found Goalscape and it was kismet.
For me it's a creative interface, and that makes all the difference. Not only can I see at a glance the big picture, I can dig as deep as I want without losing the big picture. When I am developing I am in a creative process, I jump around with many seemingly unrelated areas but with Goalscape I am able to place all ideas on the table - equally - without the hierarchy of the program determining or controlling that I have to do things in a certain way. Now I can sift through them still being in creative mode and find the best way things work together.
At the same time I am creating a Goalscape that is organised and clear, easily editable and without coming to the proverbial brick wall that causes me to abandon and dump it as I have so many times in the past. Here's hoping!
I have never said this to myself about any previous organiser.
