With just a few clicks you can now export Merlin activities as todos to Things or import todos from Things as activities into Merlin. The two market-leading applications for project management and personal task management on Mac are finally not only complementary on paper but also in practice. An easy and self-explanatory data exchange workflow, implemented in AppleScript, makes this possible.
This article describes the installation procedure of the scripts and the workflows we specifically defined in the latest Merlin 2.7.9 update for the following 2 use cases:
Work in Things. Create todos in Things and name them. Add on those todos, if required, due dates, tags, notes and may click the todos to define that they are completed
As a Things user you have created your todos and want to transfer them to Merlin in order to use them for Project Management. You also have installed Merlin on you mac, and want to insert the todos as tasks in an existing Merlin project.
In case you forgot to open a Merlin project priorly to starting the script, a dialog will appear prompting where to insert the todos.
As a Things user you have created your todos and want to transfer them to Merlin on another Mac to be used for Project Management. For file transfer email communication should be used.
