About Bridge24 Team

Bridge24 is a complimentary application to AceProject, Asana, Basecamp, and Trello that allows dynamic connectivity to your data which can be viewed and manipulated in ways not possible in the native application. Stay tuned for more exciting features on the way! Be sure to provide us your feedback about what you would like to see inside of Bridge24!

Advanced Filtering using Bridge24 – New Release

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.

Saved Reports using Bridge24 – New Release

Bridge24 provides a powerful reporting capability for Asana, Basecamp, Trello, and AceProject. We now have added the ability to save your Report setup and layout parameters so that multiple report definitions can be used without having to modify it each time.

Charts by Custom Fields for Asana and Trello

Many of you are required to start making year-end reports based on data that resides within Asana and Trello. Bridge24 should be part of your solution to create useful data products such as structured reports, and visual charts. Especially now, given that both support the use of custom fields!

Use Custom Fields to Create Dynamic Charts

Custom fields are a widely used feature within Asana and Trello since they allow you to add fields for your specific workflow. There are so many ways to use them, such as: adding a field to categorize your product, a status field for a special sign-off procedure, a version field for a release, a yes/no for any required action, etc. After all this data has been entered, how can you easily draw useful information to create summaries, or to see trends?

Bridge24 released the ability to use custom fields for grouping in Reports several months ago. Since last week, custom fields can now be used to generate dynamic […]

Reports grouped by custom fields for Asana and Trello

For Asana and Trello we frequently get requests for using Custom field information within Bridge24 (filters, charts, reports, etc). We have begun a process that will take a few iterations before being able to use them throughout the application. The first step is being released today with the ability to Group by Custom field values from within Reports.

Selecting the Custom field to Group by

From the Report parameters, simply select the Custom field from the drop-down grouping field.

You have the option to Group by a secondary dimension as well, that can also be a Custom field.

Report presentation

In the resulting report, the total of tasks/cards that meet the Grouping value criteria is presented. The count of each group is provided and the list of associated tasks/cards is listed within each grouping category.

As with any report, you can now export it to Excel, for further editing, or to PDF directly.

Stay tuned for more improvements coming your way soon!

More Bridge24 Report Enhancements: Including Unlimited Fields!

Sometimes data can overwhelm you. Being able to easily structure your Asana, Basecamp, Trello, or AceProject data in to a presentable and flexible report would be great, wouldn’t it? Well, comments from users keep pouring in and report updates have followed. In the latest update a number of new features are available to add even more flexibility in report creation.

Unlimited fields in your report

No more limit of 4 additional fields. Add any field you want! You can reorder them as well to get that report just right.

Support for landscape and portrait orientation

Change the orientation of the paper to suit your needs! A few extra fields may fit better in your PDF if in landscape mode. If you want to fit even more information, you always have the option to export to Excel which respects the formatting. Using the print options form Excel you can fit width, or fit all, to get what you want on the page.

Wide fields and sorting now available in advanced reports

We receive great comments from our users.  Not only do they indicate what new features they would like to see in the future, but how to improve existing ones, such as Reports. More fields, more flexibility, more comments, add this, add that, if only, etc. We are always attentive and try to incorporate the suggestions we receive. In this latest update, a number of suggestions we implemented and the Reports module has been tweaked and provides more flexibility.

Reports now including Task Description and Comments

Getting all your project or board information neatly placed on a printed sheet of paper is easier said than done. In the first iteration of reports we decided to limit the fields to those containing less information and retrieving only the last comment, etc. Fields such as Task description and comments can sometimes include extreme amounts of information and entering it in a readable format in a one inch or so cell would require a microscope to be useful. These “longer” or wide fields are now available and positioned below the Task […]
