Merlin – Do a bit of Magic in Reports – Part XVI

Those of you who have checked our new post series about “Merlin report templates” know by now…

Now let’s do some magic with the reports.

Output Project’s WBS
We have posted here in the past ways to display the WBS of a Merlin project.

If you prefer using a report template instead of AppleScripts, feel free to use following custom report template we present hereafter. It lists per default up to 3 levels of the WBS, ignores assignments and milestones, shows the project objective if existing and  resources. Optional you may enable the view of milestones and limit the shown levels.

You may check contained ‘’, “ProjectWBS.wbl” or “Info.plist” to see how we ask for items on the various levels, or how we iterate in their properties for the output.
Feel free to modify this custom report further as you require for your needs.

An output sample:

And the report options:


  • Extract the zip first
  • place the contained mrept package under the following path of your mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Merlin/Reports
  • (in case you have no “Reports” folder please create it first and pay attention to name it exactly as “Reports”)
  • restart your Merlin and
  • call File > New Report… to find the new report called “Project WBS”.
