On the lucid website they write that you can import Mindmaps from different formats. But I really don’t find out the way to import by my own. Can anyone help me how to import a CSV from another Mindmap tool for example?

As it looks like I have to switch from Lucidspark to Lucidchart and I need an Enterprise-Plan for importing CSVs. That makes this product very uninteresting to me.


It would have been a benefit to import all my existing mindmaps from another collaboration-software and completely switch to Lucid.

@dakapo ,


We have updated our core mind map functionality to be a better experience on the canvas, but it does not support import today. In order to access the import functionality, you can go to, select to create a new document from a template, and choose a mind map template. You can also start from here:


You will see the mind map shapes, and the option to import, loaded into the left hand panel on your screen.





Is there any format for importing from CSV to a Mind Map. 

I have all the data in a CSV file, if needed I can modify the columns as per the Lucid Format and upload the file to prepare the mind map.
