Merlin Project: Report With Project Objective

Merlin Project Support

We received following question just recently:
I’m using the latest version of Merlin Project. I have created a draft project file for a client who has requested regular status report. When I generate a report there’s a field with a heading “Objective” which shows blank on my reports, but is filled-in on the reports from your built-in templates and the help guide. Where can I edit the field in my project as this would be useful to have?

Summer reading tip for Project Managers

books

Summertime and a summer leave offers professionals much-deserved time to think and grow. It's when many of you have the breathing room to reflect on your work methodes. You can now catch up with all that you've set aside for "when I have time" and it is available to you in the internet, blogs, books or other resources.

As a PM, if you start to plan your professional learning for the summer, take a look at this recommended reading list we have assembled for you. For the talented in leaning languages among you, we include book tips in English and German that cover a wide range of Project Management topics. But we have to admit, some books work just as well in winter time.

Our special summer reading tip?

A casual sentence of a supervisor leads to a project that should be planned, documented, and realized in time without exceeding the budget. A difficult task, no doubt, but a clever project manager knows how to help himself. With the right tools he can make the project planning easier, reduce risks and ensure the success of the project.

This book illustrates how this all works smoothly and easily with Merlin Project.
