Advanced Filtering using Bridge24 – New Release

Bridge24 provides a powerful reporting capability for Asana, Basecamp, Trello, and AceProject. We now have added the ability to use advanced multi-field, multi-criteria filtering. Set date ranges and relative selects on all date fields, include/exclude values on text fields, and more!

Accessing advanced filters

The terminology and process have been modified slightly for filtering. The first step is to create your “Search” (or query) to retrieve the active dataset that you will want to filter. The Search is done on the left panel usually through a Custom search to retrieve multiple projects (including completed information) and displayed in the grid.

A new Filter drop-down is available in the header area and can be used in all views (Grid, Calendar, Charts). Use the “+” to add and name a new filter and set parameters. Filtering is available on all columns including custom field dates and values for Asana and Trello users.

Subtotals and Totals for Reports using Bridge24

A report provides a structured and formated way to view your cards, tasks or to-dos. You can Group your report to easily segment the information into categories down to 2 levels. We have now released the possibility to tally up the information in your fields to each grouped level as well as other operations! Those needing reports using Custom fields in Trello or Asana across boards and projects should be happy with this latest enhancement.

Subtotals for reports

When a field is populated by numeric values, you can now add the ability to view summary information at the bottom, including the sum. This can be used, for example, in a field displaying expenses. The expenses can be summed for each group level, and as well, have a final total. In the example below, the report is grouped by Assignee, and 2 Custom fields from Asana called Budget and Time are added, with sums for each group, and a Total at the bottom.
