Merlin Project Integrations

Quickly link information with Hook

Hook

As an experienced project manager, you are well aware. Even if project management is universally applicable, every industry is different, no two projects are alike. Therefore, you surely are familiar with the following situation too:

You are working on a new project and need information from various sources. Your search on the intranet or internet is sooner or later successful and you actually find everything you need for the planning of this project. Now you want to keep sources and documents together for documentation purposes, or your own filing system, so that you can find them again as quickly as possible at any time. What to do?

Typically, as a Merlin Project user, you will add more detailed information as Attachments. You know that you can define attachments anywhere and at any project line. You have documents which are important and binding for the project in their current state, you can add them to the project via Insert > Attachments > File. In order to get the information about the attached documents quickly, it is enough to select their attachment line and use the options of the File inspector.

Did you obtain special information for your planning from an Internet link? Record its URL by simply calling Insert > Attachments > Information from the menu for a selected line and specify the Internet source in the inspector under the URL field.

An efficient way to create and hold links is offered by the Hook app. Merlin Project 8 users are now able to exchange links with Hook much faster - not only to project files but also to specific lines of a project.

I ran 4 marathons, what did I learn?

Marathon 2021

I ran my 4th marathon some days ago. Because of the Coronavirus, I ran solo, on a route I've chosen, as a virtual race, on the day it suited me. I was prepared and it was hard nevertheless. 42.195 KM (26.2 Miles) are never easy. The route tests your endurance, fitness and commitment. Not only on start, not just by little. It's always a challenge.

So now after having completed the task and the training for this event is done, while the body is in recovery mode, it's time for the mind to do the retrospect and set new goals. What went well? What went wrong? What did I learn? What do I do the next time? Will there be a next time?
