Merlin Project works perfectly with other applications. Regardless of where your data comes from, Merlin Project will import it completely. In fact, Merlin Project can also export data to many other file formats and applications as well. Here is a summary of integrations with other applications and technologies, and how Merlin Project works with them.
Publish your schedule in the calendar in macOS or via Calendar.app directly on a CalDAV server. Merlin Project uses this calendar for a one-time export, publishes it as a project calendar or, if desired, even per resource.
Import your contacts as potential resources into Merlin Project. Simply drag & drop them from your macOS Contacts or the Library and access them in Merlin Project. Merlin Project even supports Microsoft Outlook as well as LDAP servers.
Simply attach emails to your project, the activity, or the resource using drag & drop. You can continue to read the emails in your preferred email application.
Publish your schedule to a dedicated reminders list on your local Mac or on a CalDAV server. Merlin Project uses this list to sync all updates automatically to a project calendar or even on a per resource basis.
Dropbox & others
Merlin Project automatically synchronizes projects shared on any cloud service including Dropbox, Box.com, and iCloud Drive. Even simultaneous changes by several users are integrated easily, making file conflicts a thing of the past.
Merlin Project offers full saving and editing of projects stored in shared folders. Even simultaneous changes by several users are integrated easily and without any data going amiss – including shared folders on a local Mac.
Start your project either as a Mind Map in Merlin Project or use Freemind for macOS or Windows. All you need to do then is import the result into Merlin Project. The other way around also works, of course.
GrandTotal creates invoices and quotations in the twinkling of an eye. In Merlin Project, copy and paste your transactions into the item list of an offer or invoice. GrandTotal monitors the invoice until full payment is received.
Start your project either as a Mind Map in Merlin Project or use Mindmanager for macOS or Windows. All you need to do then is import the result into Merlin Project. The other way around also works, of course.
Exchange information between Merlin Project and Microsoft Excel based on .csv and .txt files with ease. Applications such as Apple Numbers, OpenOffice, and more also support the format fully.
Import your contacts as potential resources from Microsoft Outlook into Merlin Project. Simply drag & drop them from Microsoft Outlook or the Library to access them in Merlin Project. You can also use Microsoft Outlook to open calendar files exported from Merlin Project.
We probably don’t need to tell you this, but Merlin Project also works perfectly with Microsoft Project. Import Microsoft Project mpp, mpx, and xml file formats and export your changes to Microsoft Project in the Microsoft Project xml format.
