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
Users are not only viewing, but also editing their data more and more within Bridge24 for AceProject, Asana, Basecamp, and Trello. To complete the basic editing capabilities already available, a new Attachment Uploader has been added for all providers. Now when editing your Task/Card/To do within Bridge24, the upload of documents, images, and any other files is made easy.
To use the Attachment Uploader:
Open the Edit dialogue of a Task/Card/To do
Click on the Attachments tab and click the Browse button to select your files, or drag and drop your file(s) anywhere on the Edit dialogue

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:
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
