A heavily requested feature for Basecamp 3 users of Bridge24, we are excited to provide access to 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 Projects, and dynamically filter as required. Additionally, a new Calendar view is also now available.
Gantt View usage

The Gant view is based on the Active Search and Filter results currently in the returned selection set. The Gantt view is able to display to-dos across multiple projects. Click on the Gantt view to display the chart.

A heavily requested feature for Trello users of Bridge24, we are excited to provide access to the File Download Manager. This allows the punctual or bulk download for files (attachments) associated to cards (documents, images, other) within a card, a search set of cards, a board, or across multiple boards. It has been optimized to track the transfer status and provides an index and log, in structured zip files. Whether just with a few attachments or a full backup of 10s of GBs of files, this feature is robust and gets the job done!
File Download Manager usage
1) Active Search results
Be sure to create a Search or use the Quick links to access and display your Active search results in the Grid. You can then filter the returned cards as desired to include the cards with attachments that you are interested in downloading. (Option – Use the column Show/Hide […]
A heavily requested feature for Asana users of Bridge24, we are excited to provide access to the File Download Manager. This allows the punctual or bulk download for files (attachments) associated to tasks (documents, images, other) within a task, a search set of tasks, a project, or across multiple projects. It has been optimized to track the transfer status and provides an index and log, in structured zip files.

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 […]
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).
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.
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!
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.
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.

Trello is an online collaboration tool known for its flexibility and awesome collaboration features. At its core, Trello is a system of visual boards, lists, and cards. You can use it to prioritize tasks, assign work, exchange resources, communicate ideas, view your team’s progress, and so much more. You can also tweak your board in different ways to fit the evolving needs of your project. Its simplicity and versatility is what makes it a powerful tool. Trello supports teams of all sizes and is ideal for marketing teams, freelancers, HR teams, product developers, design teams, individuals, and a wide range of other collaborative tasks.
Although Trello has amazing features, it’s not a complete tool by itself. It has some gaps in its features that can limit how you work on your project. Fortunately, Trello allows you to combine it with other third-party tools to fill these gaps. Although there are multiple Power-Ups, some features are still unavailable or aren’t […]

If you want to ramp up your productivity and slash the time you take to accomplish work, you need to get the right tools. Trello is one amazing productivity tool that can transform the way you approach your projects and workflow. It offers great productivity and collaboration features for teams of all sizes. Whether you’re an individual using Trello to plan simple daily tasks or a large team working on a complex project, you can take your productivity to another level by enabling the Butler tool inside Trello.
Butler is a super powerful tool that lets you automate your Trello board. It was founded by Oscar Triscon after he realized that there wasn’t a solution for automating Trello’s manual processes. The tool suddenly opened up an entirely new way of using Trello, and in 2018, Trello acquired it and made it one of the core features of their platform. Remember, there are also other tools that you can combine […]

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. […]

There’s a reason why businesses and teams are choosing Agile methodology – it brings changes and flexibility in the business quickly. Teams can manage a project quickly by segmenting it into smaller, manageable chunks of work that are prioritized and iterated on. In every stage of the project, there’s constant collaboration with stakeholders and continuous planning and improvement. Although initially used by software development teams, professionals in other sectors have now embraced agile development and are actively using it to boost their productivity. And thanks to tools like Trello, teams can now apply the Agile methodology to effectively handle projects and tasks.
Trello is a web-based application inspired by the Kanban system, and it smoothly accommodates Agile principles. It’s easy to use and offers a visual approach to project management. Teams can use Trello’s board, lists, and cards to create visual representations of their tasks. The tasks are moved through predetermined stages to track progress and spot bottlenecks. At […]

Companies are increasingly changing the way they manage their projects. The shift has been fast – more businesses are moving from spreadsheets and paperwork to organizing their work using more productive tools that encourage collaboration. After recognizing the benefits that project management software brings, organizations are now using such tools every day. In fact, studies show that 77% of high performing projects rely on project management to ensure productivity, efficiency, and easier team collaboration.
When scouting for the ideal PM software, businesses look for three main qualities – reliability, ease of use, and ease of integration. One tool that possesses these qualities is Trello. It’s stable, has a simple interface, has no learning curve, and is flexible enough to take on any project. Millions of Trello users rely on it to organize projects, collaborate, track work progress, get work updates, share resources, and much more. Although an excellent tool, Trello isn’t a complete solution. It lacks some features that […]

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 […]
