Merlin Project: Use Dependencies, Remove Static Dates, Stay flexible

Merlin Project Support

With Merlin Project you are free to plan your project in any way you find it more suitable. You can plan in Work breakdown with Gantt, as a Mind Map, a Kanban board. Just pick the view you need and customize it to your needs.

While Mind Map is not focusing on time constrains, when viewing the Gantt of your project, you are interested in its scheduling. So you might already intuitively dragged the activity's bar on the Gantt to fix it to a specific time frame, or entered dates in the Given Start column or the Plan inspector.

And we have to admit, there is nothing wrong about that, other than the manual work you are putting into these actions of setting static date constrains and loosing flexibility.

How to stay flexible for scheduling changes in the future?
The answer is easy; use Dependencies

  • Merlin Project offers following Dependency types: End to Start, Start to Start, End to End, Start to End
  • Dependencies can be combined with a lead or a lag.
  • You can define Dependencies graphically, enter the Predecessor's (or Successor's) number in the according outline column, use the inspector, or the Link toolbar icon. Read here more…

The iPad Is Getting Closer and Closer to the Mac

Professional Project Management on the iPad Is a Reality Thanks to Merlin Project

Merlin Project on an iPad Pro

With the release of version 7.2 yesterday, Merlin Project on the iPad has moved even closer to the Mac version. Another important milestone on the way to the same functionality on Mac and iPad has been reached.

The new features:

  • In the project settings, you can now specify the formats for the outline and WBS codes, as well as edit the value lists for attachments and resources.
  • Via the new item "Edit..." in the view menu you can create and manage your own views.
  • Via the new item "Edit..." in the column set menu you can create and manage your own column sets.
  • From activities with planning conflicts you can now jump directly to the list with all conflicts via the context menu.

Of course, the problems known from the previous version have also been fixed and the general stability has been improved.
