Beginning with MS Project 98 and up through MS Project 2007, Merlin understands the file formats offered for this Windows program. Merlin reads MPP, XML and MPX file formats. It can write XML and MPX file formats for Windows compatibility.
Merlin offers rich support for many other file formats as well. Import of NovaMind, Mindmanager, Excel, XML and many other file formats ensures rich data integration.
You can synchronize your Merlin project file with iCal so you can see your entire project activities list in a familiar calendar view. If you want to distribute your team’s project activities, Merlin can create iCal calendars for each assigned resource in your project, which your team members can then subscribe to to keep all their activities updated. Merlin will even update the iCal calendars when you make changes in your Merlin project file.
A project printout is perhaps one of the most important features in a project management application. Merlin's customized printing and reporting functions give you the flexibility to preview your printouts, highlight certain information and produce a polished printout which will help bolster your case to even your toughest audiences. Merlin's reporting allows you to access pre-defined reports templates or one you've created yourself. The reports can then be displayed or e-mailed in familiar formats, including PDF and HTML.
