The Bridge24 user account is now available and required for all users.
This provides Bridge24 a centralized place to store all parameters for your user. Before, the settings were stored within your browser’s local storage, meaning that it could only be accessed from that same browser on the same computer if you wanted to keep your settings. Now, once logged into your account, the same experience and settings will be used from any of your devices and browsers.
The next time you access Bridge24 and for new users, it will request that you create your user account:
A confirmation email will be sent. Navigate to this email and click the activation link and you can finish the sign-up process by adding your name and creating a strong password (min: 8 characters, 1 upper, 1 lowercase, 1 special character or number) :
We are pleased to announce the support of custom fields for both Asana and Trello within Bridge24. Asana and Trello released their custom field features a few months ago and support for them instantly became the most requested feature from our users. We decided to implement this feature as fast as we could since we found that supporting custom fields would add amazing possibilities for reporting and exporting.
What are custom fields?
Custom fields provide a way for users to tailor their experience by adding more project fields that can qualify tasks or cards. This opens up many possibilities for workflows. For example, you can now create and use a field containing an accounting ID code, or a drop-down list of values to choose from. This flexibility opens Asana and Trello up to being much more than simple task management solutions.
Available custom field types: number, text, drop-down list
Allows an infinite number of custom fields and is available in paid subscription accounts
In this recent iteration of the export functionality, the ability to export multiple levels of Asana subtasks to Excel and CSV is now possible. This addition was based on user feedback that we received. Asana’s subtasks are regular tasks that can be nested up to 5 levels deep. There are many use cases that we have learned about and have offered 2 subtask export options for users based on these; full task list (including subtasks in the main task list), and separate sheet per level of subtask (Excel only). If you are using custom fields within Asana, those are treated like any other field and will also be exported.
To access from the Grid, Kanban or Calandar view, click on the Export icon on the top right:
Users now have access to the following options for subtasks in the Subtasks Preference dropdown:
Do not export – Does not export subtasks
Export in one sheet – All levels of subtasks will be
Ever think to yourself that “there must be a better way to get the information I want out of my application?”. This month in Bridge24 we are releasing the ability to export your information from your connected AceProject, Asana, Basecamp, or Trello application to Excel or CSV. Many programs do not allow control of the information exported, such as: not exporting comments, a limited quantity of tasks, not exporting subtasks, or only bulk download of all of the data. Bridge24 allows you to filter and visually format your information across all your projects and easily export.
You can now, for example:
Filter one or more projects between certain dates then export
Export a filtered list of your assigned tasks, to-do’s or cards
Group by project, by user and more into a coherent and structured list, then export
Show/hide and arrange columns that you want in the export
From the Calendar view, export the items from the current period displayed

Jason Fried received his Bachelor’s degree in Finance at the University of Arizona. However, he was already writing and selling software during his student days. One of the first ones he wrote was a music collection organizer in FileMaker Pro on a Macintosh computer. He wrote it mainly for his own use, but then decided to upload it in case others would buy it. And others did. Basically, that is how his software business started, which led him to starting Basecamp.
The Basecamp Software
Basecamp is a web-based project management tool created by a web design company based in Chicago originally called 37signals. The PM tool initially was for their own use and the co-founder Jason Fried decided to make it available commercially when their customers and other people expressed their interest to use it, too. In 2014, the company renamed itself Basecamp after its flagship product, with a focus on maintaining and improving its project

Recently, they launched Message Types and List View as the latest features available in Basecamp 3. For a great extension to Basecamp, we recommend you use our own tool Bridge24 for Basecamp.
Previous Workaround, Now A Feature for All
The latest innovation-turned-feature was a workaround that users in Basecamp themselves have been doing.

For instance, they put a loudspeaker emoji in front of announcements. Similarly, they put a

A refreshing redesign of the Bridge24 interface is now available. We have worked hard to improve the look and feel as well as increase load speeds and make more fluid. Simply login to the app to start using!
A flatter design was chosen to bring it more up to date, and to make it clearer and lighter to view and navigate the interface. A number of settings have been re-positioned and modified slightly to be used more efficiently. Standardizing the design allows us to more quickly integrate new features moving forward.
Not only has the design improved, but general performance has increased as well. The grid is now smoother to scroll as well as transitions between views are much more fluid.
On loading information or refreshing, progress bars were greatly improved to provide better knowledge of the state of the application.
