Guest access and User-Resources

Project files contain important and confidential information. When required you can define access permissions to your documents in Merlin Project.

In every new project the default resource permits you access to the project. This resource is also implemented to control guest access and cannot be deleted.

A new resource can be defined as a user, in that you enable its 'Is user' option. Click once again onto the 'Set password…' to define the password for this user-resource.

When you insert the very first user-resource into your project, Merlin Project prompts you if you want to keep or disable the guest access. Disable guest access, to forbit other access and permissions than those defined for your user-resources.

Have you allowed guest access to a project and would like to disable it later on?

Call a Resources view of the project in question. Select the Default Resource. Disable its 'Is User' option. From this moment onwards you'll need to enter a user-resource and its password to open this project file.

Reoccurring tasks

Is it possible to split an activity? No, this is not possible, but there are two options in configuring something similar in Merlin Project.

Following steps allow you setup reoccurring tasks in Merlin Project.

Create first one activity within you can manually insert children activities.

By a given start date, you can schedule individual activities and distribute them within the activity group. In case they always occur after a fixed amount of time, link them to each other and select all dependency lines. Now you can enter the amount of time as Lead.

Expand or collapse the group as desired.

Another option to record reoccurring tasks in Merlin Project would be to use events. Select an activity and call the "Insert" menu. Select therefrom "Attachment > Event".

In the Details (the secondary project view) you can schedule the individual events and insert new as desired.
