One of the main responsibilities of a PM is to report regularly project relevant information. This could be the project’s current state, cost forecasts, current balance between budget and actual costs to name just a few. When you use Merlin for project management on Mac OS X, there are various ways to create these reports out of your Merlin projects:
- You may export your project as a CSV file to drop in a spreadsheet and calculate further using the planned, expected, and actual values.
- Export into iCal files (ics) and have your project events transferred into calendar applications.
- You can also go the obvious way: File > New report… and select one of the report templates Merlin offers*
Just another possibility you might not know by now, is…
- To select your Merlin columns, copy them as rich text and paste into a text editor (like Pages.app, TextEdit.app, or even Mail.app)
