Merlin 2.7.9 | Mac OSX | 46 Mb
Merlin 2 is the leading professional project management software for Mac OS X. Developed by project managers for project managers, Merlin truly delivers in meeting your professional requirements.
Brainstorm with your colleagues and capture information as a Mindmap. Whether you are using Novamind or MindManager, you can quickly and easily take the results of your brainstorming sessions and open it in Merlin as the basis for creating the initial structure of your project.
Beginning with MS Project 98 and up through MS Project 2007, Merlin understands the file formats offered for this Windows program. Merlin can read MPP, XML or MPX files and write to XML or MPX formats if necessary. This helps pave the way free of obstacles to easily collaborate with those using Microsoft Office Project on Windows.
Elements represent one of the most compelling and unique features in Merlin. Elements allow you to attach key data and information to individual activities, milestones, and projects. Take advantage of the six different types of Elements that Merlin provides to integrate into your project plans. Elements helps ensure that all key data, documents, and information is readily available and optimally organized to help you retain control of your projects. Elements also offer a rich layer of knowledge by offering version control, allowing you to trace the history of changes made to critical information during the course of a project.
