A 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 Asana, Basecamp, 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.
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
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, 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 (Day, Week, Month)
Project management is accepted by most professionals in many companies as a key element in realizing business goals and customer satisfaction. Today’s global business landscape is significantly project-driven. Hence, companies are sorting out and studying about the kinds of project management processes, methodologies and tools to implement in their own teams and organization. Choosing the right PM tool is critical and challenging. The right tool can support processes, boost productivity and empower the workforce. A wrong choice adds to the problem. Choosing the right PM is also challenging simply because of the huge number of choices.
The Top 4
An efficient and reliable project management tool has strong core features but at the same time flexible for different situations. At its basic, it has a solid task assignment, progress tracking and information organization features. Also, its communication and collaboration functions are easy to use. Residing in the cloud makes it highly accessible. Last, the ability to work with other apps through integration provides users some degree of customization. Below
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.
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.
Technology is more a catalyst than an influencer in education today. It is increasingly changing the education landscape. Technology consultant, Gartner projects that this year will see 6.4 billion connected things in use world over, up 30 per cent from the last. Look further at the same number in 2020 and the forecast suggests it will be close to 21 billion.
In a Forrester Research study, over 80 percent of participants said the Internet of Things (IoT) will be the most strategic technology initiative for their organization in a decade.
Managing projects better
In the workplace, elearning has become a norm as it has been proven to reduce costs, make learning faster yet more effective and boost productivity. Choosing a project management tool is one of the more important decisions an elearning team makes. One of the governing factors in making this choice is the tool’s flexibility while remaining fully functional. While there are several tools in the market, there are some that provide standout features. Google Docs pairs with any
As an entrepreneur and business owner for the last 18 years, I remember well what the start-up phase is like; you wear every hat under the sun – from receptionist to doorbell-ringing salesman to production manager to accountant (if you call personally sending out homemade invoices every month being an accountant!).
Fast forward many years down the line, and I now have a large team spread across the country and my challenges are immensely different to when we were in start-up phase. For one, my team works remotely, and I need to know whether they are productive or not. The challenge of monitoring productivity while still running and growing the business, all the while constantly avoiding the trap of slipping into micro-management, has lead me to these findings.
Get the right software to help your team track orders, projects, inventory and invoices. Try and avoid multiple data capturing points as this can increase errors and be an unnecessary burden on your admin staff. Look for a single system that
Even experienced travelers can become jet-lagged, bleary-eyed and disoriented when venturing into unfamiliar territory. To minimize travel anxiety, you can turn to apps that help you plot your journey.
There now are travel apps for practically every conceivable purpose. Hypochondriacs headed to a new environment can take comfort in sick weather, which alerts you — in real time — if you are entering an area known to pose high risk of contagious diseases. For the nervous flier, there’s Am I Going Down? (for iOS and Android), which calculates the probability of a crash on your particular flight. And for the solo traveller, there’s React Mobile, which allows you to share your location with contacts if you feel unsafe.
Working on the go
Taskmasters favor Asana, which acts as a space for team members to discuss projects, delegate responsibilities and create to-do lists.
Something has changed. This change has occurred so gradually that we may be having trouble noticing the shift. This change is that working from home has become – just – working. We are at a point where we can drop the “from home” descriptor that follows “working” – just as we are dropping the “digital” before “camera.” (Or “smart” before “phone”). At a time in the not so distant past the default place of work was the office. The assumption was that paid employment would take place at a place other than home. Working at home was an alternative.
Today, platforms such as Slack and Yammer blur the lines between asynchronous and synchronous communications. Our collaborative work takes place in Google Docs. We use Asana and Basecamp to track projects and assign tasks. Without us really noticing, the technology for distributed collaboration just got much better.
In addition to great features included with Bridge24, it also provides a way to work with Asana and Basecamp in another language other than English. Connect to these applications and view and interact with your information in an interface in your native French or Spanish. Features to edit tasks and to-dos, as well as produce reports and export to Excel are included.
Below is an Asana account connected to Bridge24. All menu items in the left panel, column headers, pop-up dialogue labels and notifications are provided in French and Spanish. Since much of the functionality to update tasks is possible within Bridge24, use this interface to work with your data from Asana or Basecamp. (Also supported for AceProject and Trello)
To select the language of the interface, click on your profile image on the top right of the application, and change the language setting. The following is Bridge24 connected with an Asana account with the French language setting:
3 Reasons Asana is the Right Choice to Manage IT Projects
Asana is my choice for managing IT projects. I’ve managed big IT projects for large government agencies and financial institutions. Indeed, I wish Asana had been available to use on those projects. However, I was stuck using MS Project. That’s a nightmare I don’t wish to experience again. I’ve used Asana to manage projects since then.
Asana and other Software Every Marketing Grad Should Know
I’ve met plenty of people in the marketing space, new and experienced alike, that don’t have experience in or knowledge of even some of the most basic tools. In fact, I’ve met people that have never used a CMS.
If you’re a fresh graduate in particular, I really think there is no excuse for not having sampled at least some of the commonly used and freely available marketing tools on the market. In your career, it’s
To track or not to track? Employee monitoring possible with Asana
It can also be useful to track different kinds of output data, like the number of words you write, if you’re a writer, or your number of Github commits, if you’re a coder (which Exist also collects). Tools like Word Counter, Asana, Trello, Zapier, IFTTT, Gyroscope and RescueTime can work in concert to arm employees with information about how they’re working.
If so inclined, you can use this kind of data to help manage yourself and understand what works for you. But, as with any kind of data collection, it’s going to have its limitations, the number of words you write, or emails you send are easy to measure—but they might not actually be important. Quality can be hard to quantify.
Popular Email Client Newton Now Connects with Asana
Popular email client Cloud Magic is now Newton. Cloud Magic was already a clean, fast, reliable way to navigate and triage email. With a reliable push notification system, and versions for both iOS and Mac, Newton had developed into a mature ecosystem. Now that they have built their app into a huge success, the creators of Newton felt that it was time for the next stage of development.
Among its plethora of power features, it has connected apps that allows users to finish their workflow without leaving their email. They can add important emails to their favorite productivity apps like Todoist, Evernote, OneNote, Pocket, Trello, Zendesk, Salesforce and Asana.
