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 to a dedicated calendar on your local Mac or on a CalDAV server. Merlin Project uses this calendar for the one-off export, and then publishes it as a project calendar or even on a per resource basis.
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.
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.
