You plan your projects with Merlin Project? Then you already know that you can add your project activities and work with them in various views. Typically, you'll use a work breakdown structure with Gantt chart, when you are interested in the scheduling of your project. Many of our users choose a Kanban board, for a more visual approach and focus on the tasks and their current status.

In the following, we will show you, how you can filter activities and view your Kanban board by priority, to ensure you are not overwhelming your team and taking care of significant activities first.Read more...

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:

- 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.
