Export to Excel or CSV of Multi-Level Subtasks for Asana Now Supported through Bridge24

By Bridge24 Team | December 2, 2016

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).

To access from the Grid, Kanban or Calandar view, click on the Export icon on the top right:

Export button

Users now have access to the following options for subtasks in the Subtasks Preference dropdown:

export_options_asana

  • Do not export – Does not export subtasks
  • Export in one sheet – All levels of subtasks will be placed within one sheet with tasks
  • Export to separate sheets – Every level of subtask will have its own sheet

Export Tasks to Excel and CSV for Asana, Basecamp, Trello and AceProject

By Bridge24 Team | December 1, 2016

Export-Excel, a powerful feature available in Bridge24Ever 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

Kanban Boards for Asana, Basecamp, Trello and AceProject

By Bridge24 Team | September 22, 2016

Kanban Boards Supported for Trello, Asana, Basecamp and AceProjectA Kanban board is a visual representation of tasks and workflow, making your operational experience that much easier by centralizing information. Bridge24 has released its first iteration of this valuable tool. Now users of AsanaBasecamp, Trello , and AceProject can visually change the state of their tasks by dragging from one list to another. The list represents the status, or process step (workflow). In an instant, a user can see work to be started, that which is in progress and completed.

We know Trello already has a light Kanban-style board, but we offer some behaviors not present in Trello. For example, you get the card count for each list, a list can be collapsed to free up your screen, and a lot more.

Collapsible Columns/Lists

Sometimes there are many lists and your screen fills up very rapidly. Scrolling to get access to the last column is sometimes tedious and sometimes not all columns are required to be viewed, since perhaps only a few

By Jose Maria Delos Santos | November 10, 2016

trello-logoTrello is a project management app that helps users organize and prioritize information in highly visual ways. Just recently, it announced Slides integration for the Google Drive Power-Up. In general, a Power-Up is a way to enhance or expand Trello’s features by integrating with plug-ins, add-ons and 3rd party applications. In the past, users are able to attach docs, spreadsheets and folders from Google Drive into a Trello card. The latest Slides integration allows users to turn a board or set of cards into a presentation easily.

Trello for Google Slides

With this latest integration, users can make a Slide deck quickly out of Trello cards. Work information that is already outlined on the board can be easily turned into a presentation in just a short amount of time. Aside from the time savings, it is a great and handy tool for many important situations such as:

  • Company meetings
  • Sprint retrospectives
  • Design feedback

Asana and Microsoft Teams: Turning Conversations Into Actions

By Jose Maria Delos Santos | November 4, 2016

asana-new-logoAsana is a popular task management and work tracking tool. Teams from small and large companies across the globe are using it to figure out what needs to be done by who and by when. In spite of its popularity, it does not consider its application as a one size-fits all solution. Instead, it has equally worked on with its ability to integrate with many third-party apps for a more complete business tool. And a few days ago, it has announced an integration with another very recently launched platform, Microsoft Teams.

Announcing Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace within Office 365 that enables teams- with their conversations, content and the tools they need – to easily collaborate together. At the moment, it is available in preview to commercial customers on certain premium Office 365 plans. This chat workspace provides teams with persistent and threaded chats, visible team conversations, integrated voice and video conference tools and other modern tools. It is also customizable with its open

Asana News: Custom Fields + API = Inspiring Integrations

By Jose Maria Delos Santos | October 28, 2016

asana-new-logoA couple of months or so ago, Asana launched custom fields that enable users to track anything that needs tracking. The new feature reflects a continuing commitment to empower teams and help them do great things together. More recently, it was announced that users can also work with custom fields using the API. This is opening great possibilities that will result in even better integrations. Indeed, users can now use custom fields in scripts and integrations, making apps work better together.

Unito Syncs Asana and GitHub

Asana’s partners and 3rd party developers are busy trying out this new feature. In fact, Unito is one of those who tried out the custom field usage using the API. Unito is an application that works in the background allowing users to sync their different project management tools. The partnership brought about a tool that allows a two-way sync between Asana and GitHub. GitHub is a code repository site. With the new tool, GitHub issues and Asana tasks are now automatically synchronized.

Elevate Your Company’s Culture with Asana

By Bridge24 Team | October 17, 2016

Company culture is changing drastically. “Casual Fridays” are now a week long, and companies like Google are pushing the limits of employee benefits by offering perks like on-site doctor visits.

As an entrepreneur and digital agency owner, hiring the best and retaining top talent is fundamentally based on the culture our company provides. By creating a culture that blends work and non-work life, I’ve seen the success in the autonomy and leadership in our team that builds a solid foundation for growth.

Work-From-Home Days:

While not for every business, work-from-home days are becoming increasingly popular. I’ve seen companies leverage this perk to cut down on parking costs in metropolitan areas for their employees and create more room in already full office space. With account management software like Asana to internal communication software like Slack, collaboration can expand outside the office space.
