Gantt Chart View for Trello in Bridge24 – New Feature

A heavily requested feature for Trello users of Bridge24, we are excited to provide access to the first iteration of the Gantt Chart view. This view is very flexible in that it can use any date field as a punctual date or as a start and end dates. This allows you, therefore, to view a timeline of any activity in a continuous calendar across all Boards, and dynamically filter as required.

Gantt Chart View usage

The traditional use of a Gantt chart is in planning, where the user adds and moves tasks in time to view project progression. It is based on a start date and an end date. Trello, until recently, did not have a Card Start date. Development of the Bridge24 Gantt view preceded their release of this new date field, so we decided to allow any date field, including those from Custom fields to be used for either the […]

Calendar Enhancements in Bridge24 – New Release

Your Bridge24 account comes with lots of interesting and powerful features that you may not be aware of. Recently we updated the Calendar view with the unique ability to display different dates on the calendar (not just Due date). 

Calendar View

Many users make use of the Calendar view to get a quick glance at how their tasks are dispersed through time. Prior to the recent changes, only the due date was viewable. Now, select other dates and ranges to view, such as Created At and Last Updated At. This can provide valuable insight at a glance.

A use case may be to filter by User and see all tasks that have been “Last Updated” recently by that User. Or, if you have a ticketing project, you can use “Created At” date to view the spread of ticket creation throughout the month.

If you are a Trello user, Custom date […]

Shared Searches across users in your Bridge24 account – New Release

Bridge24 provides a powerful reporting capability for Asana, Basecamp, Trello, and AceProject. We now have added the ability to use share your Searches for other users in your Bridge24 account to access and use.

Each Bridge24 account comes with 5 users for you and your colleagues to use to create great reports and other representations of your data. Many users create a lot of Searches, and when they add another user, there has been keen interest in the ability to share those searches with the other users. As of today, this is now possible!

Sharing Searches

Setting up Search parameters can take time, and some users create a lot of Searches. When a new user joins their Bridge24 account it may take a lot of energy to recreate those searches for the new user to create/access the same search parameters. The same Searches are usually used by multiple users so that they can display/create similar reports, charts, or exports.

On […]

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.

Advanced […]

How Can Trello Be Improved?

You can use it to prioritize tasks, assign work, exchange resources, communicate ideas, view your team’s progress, and so much more.

The STOP Method and How to Apply it to Trello

The Sequential Thematic Organization of Publications (STOP) method is a technique used to organize and write reports, proposals, and technical content. It brings greater outlining control to the document and improves its editorial standards. The concept allows writers to develop readable technical documents that users can easily digest. Below we will take a deeper look at the STOP concept, and how you can apply it to Trello. Remember that you can unlock Trello’s full potential by combining it with Power-Ups. For instance, you can integrate your account with Bridge24 for Trello to bring advanced reporting and exporting features to your board.

A Brief History of STOP

The STOP methodology was pioneered by the Hughes Aircraft Company (now Raytheon) in the 1960s. The technique was developed after the company faced challenges in creating proposals. The company needed to draft a huge number of proposals, yet they didn’t have enough authors to handle all these proposals. […]

How to Do a Brainstorm in Trello

Brainstorming is a group creativity technique used to generate ideas to solve problems. In a brainstorming session, members of the group can express their thoughts and ideas, no matter how crazy they may sound, without fear of being judged. Some of these concepts and proposals are refined into solutions, while others lead to the hatching of brilliant ideas. Teams in different business sectors and departments use these sessions to stimulate creative thinking and spark innovation. However, team members are not always able to gather around and hold physical brainstorming meetings. 

When team members work remotely or are distributed across multiple states and even countries, businesses need to look for tools that can help them have an impactful brainstorming session. One of the tools commonly used when teams have a physical meeting to conceive ideas is a whiteboard with sticky notes. However, remote and on-site teams can take advantage of Trello too, a digital whiteboard that makes organizing ideas a […]
