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.

Roadmap

New years bring new resolutions and new plans. When planing projects you combine content with persons and goals. A roadmap matching short-term and long-term goals with specific solutions to help meet those goals can be easily developed using Merlin Project.

Here are the steps, showing how you can develop a roadmap for your projects in Merlin Project.
Just start a new project.

Enter first the roadmap goals and tasks as activities. Define the planned duration required for the goals to be achieved. Link them afterwards accordingly to each other. This defines the order in which they should take place.

Using styles you can color your roadmap as desired.

By a secondary click on an activity, you call the context menu. Select there 'Style' and 'Bars'.

Using Tags in your conditions, you can define custom colors for your individual bars. Use the Styles inspector to select a higher value for the min bar height, to get higher bars. You'll find a detailed guide to the styles and tags in the related quick guide on our website.

Now you see the roadmap in its full splendor.

To bring the Gantt chart to paper, just use the print options of Merlin Project.
