The Construction Schedule As a Tool For Planning A Construction Project

Construction Schedule with Merlin Project

The construction schedule, also known as the construction calendar, is an aid for the construction manager who has to coordinate the construction process in such a way that the work of the individual trades can run smoothly and interlock without long, time-consuming breaks. The construction supervisor makes all entries in the construction schedule that are necessary for a secure time schedule. Deviations from the construction schedule are often associated with high costs.


Merlin Project 6.1 Is Released

News about Merlin Project

We have just released version 6.1. This version is not only a maintenance update, but also brings you new features on the Mac and iPad.

Merlin Project on the Mac

Exported files can now be shared directly from the export dialog via e-mail, messages, AirDrop etc. The menu item "File > Send as e-mail..." is therefore no longer necessary and has been removed.

The HTML export has been significantly enhanced in some places: All web resources such as images, CSS files and JavaScripts can now be embedded in the generated HTML files. Likewise, multiple views can now be exported to a single file. And last but not least, an exported file can be given its own header.

Of course version 6.1 has also received a number of quality improvements.

Merlin Project on the iPad

Version 6.1 allows the export of project contents. You can now export your projects in the following formats: Image, Text (CSV), formatted text, MS Project, Free Mind, Mind Manager, HTML, OPML and XML.

In addition, there have been minor adjustments for light and dark mode on the iPad. The Inspector can now be displayed with a light background, just like on the Mac.

The iOS version has also received a number of quality improvements.
