Asana and Trello Custom Fields Supported Through Bridge24

New Feature: Custom Fields support for Trello and AsanaWe 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.

Asana

  • Available custom field types:  number, text, drop-down list
  • Allows an infinite number of custom fields and is […]

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

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:
bridge24_export1

Users now have access to the following options for subtasks in the Subtasks Preference dropdown:
bridge24_export_options2

  • Do not export – Does not export subtasks
  • Export in one sheet – All levels of subtasks will be […]

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

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 […]

Asana Introduces the CSV Importer Feature

Asana is a project tracking and management application for teams. It can be used for tracking and managing projects from initiation to closing. Although spreadsheets are still popularly used for project planning, its ease of use begins to diminish once the project starts moving. Spreadsheets are limited and less flexible when it comes to collaborative work, for being shareable and up-to-date. However, using a more suited application can mean starting all over again. Teams do not want that. And they do not have to anymore, with the new CSV importer feature in Asana. For a powerful extension to Asana, give our own tool Bridge24 for Asana a try, or access it on their Integration page.

Asana Advantage Over Spreadsheets

Asana has several advantages over spreadsheets as a project tracking and management application. A project plan in Asana is ready for collaboration. Multiple team members can update the plan to show the actions they are taking for the different tasks. They can assign work, share files, and communicate […]
