This really is the best project planning application ever, I'm so glad my friend referred me to use this for my project. — Dobrila May


Kanban Board in Merlin Project

Agile waterfall is not a swear word

Project management couldn't be simpler than in the Kanban view: Collect your tasks in the left column as cards. As the project progresses, move them to the right until they finally end up in the Completed column. If you switch between the kanban board and the work breakdown view, you experience the magic effect: The Gantt bars fill automatically. This is hybrid project management.
