Product Announcement – ProjectWizards of Melle, Germany has released Merlin Project 4.2, an update to their market-leading project-management software for macOS. If an architect in the planning office wants to coordinate activities with the site engineer, this can now also be accomplished with ease via a shared Dropbox folder. But whereas users of other applications have to deal with the hassle of conflicting files, project managers who use Merlin Project can now go about their work with a smile. The unique synchronization function in the software (patent pending) doesn’t just synchronize the projects; it also gathers up conflicting files and resolves these automatically in the associated project.
As support for the popular cloud service is now integrated into both applications, everything works just as well on the move with Merlin Project Go on iPhone or iPad as it does on macOS with Merlin Project. On the Mac, you just use the familiar Dropbox integration in Finder on iOS you just need to link your Dropbox account, and off you go.
It’s now a breeze for project managers who use multiple devices or who work in small working groups to now keep their projects updated via iCloud Drive or Dropbox – even if they’re not running Merlin Server themselves. Merlin Project 4.2 synchronizes all changes automatically, making them available to every project participant.
The seamless integration of Dropbox makes Merlin Project the first choice for anyone who always works in a team, albeit only occasionally, as part of their job. For users with advanced requirements, such as automatic sending of emails, Merlin Server remains the best option.
Merlin Project 4.2 is free of charge for any licensed Merlin Project 3 or Merlin Project 4 user to update to version 4.2. The latest version of Merlin Project Go will be made available automatically via the App Store. If you’re a project manager and you’re interested in trying out Merlin Project 4.2 for Mac, you can download absolutely free of charge for 30 days.
