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
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
Bridge24 is a free and powerful reporting add-on (and more) to popular project management solutions. It provides added flexibility and control, as well as export, of one’s data when using PM software like AceProject, Asana, Basecamp and Trello.
Most of our work recently has been on the backend of Bridge24, preparing for our next phase of development. This being said, you may have noticed a few small enhancements that have been added to your Bridge24 experience over the summer. Take a look below!
Trello is a visual application of boards, lists and cards that enable users to flexibly manage the simplest of tasks as well as the biggest of projects. In fact, projects do get very big, to the extent that it needs to be broken down to more manageable pieces. In addition, some tasks or cards depend on other cards’ completion before they can move forward. These are dependencies, and people refer to them as parent/child relationships. In agile development, they use the terms epics and stories.
Substantial, a digital product studio, uses Trello for managing their software projects. In their work, they have encountered difficulty in seeing a high-level view of their project’s progress. They also run complicated projects that outgrew their workflow. They have always wanted to create parent/child relationships in their boards. But instead of using existing plugins, they created the Hello Epics Power-Up. Now, they see all related items, and quickly realize what work is left to
Trello project management and collaboration software helps teams organize and prioritize projects in a highly visual and flexible way. The challenges of work seem to be always evolving.

Asana Custom Templates promote the idea of time-saving. Teams do not have to reinvent the wheel, to start from the very beginning, every time they initiate a new project. Indeed, teams who have been doing common processes for a number of times may have already figured out what works and what do not. Therefore, it is not necessary to always set things up from the very start. They can create a

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. In order to emphasize the purpose of a post, users have been prefixing the subjects of their posts with different types of emojis. For instance, they put a loudspeaker emoji in front of announcements. Similarly, they put a
