A report provides a structured and formated way to view your cards, tasks or to-dos. You can Group your report to easily segment the information into categories down to 2 levels. We have now released the possibility to tally up the information in your fields to each grouped level as well as other operations! Those needing reports using Custom fields in Trello or Asana across boards and projects should be happy with this latest enhancement.
Project management is a continuously growing industry with more teams joining it and online collaboration tools being developed. In fact, according to the Project Management Institute, there were only more than a hundred of this software back in 2000. Today, more than a thousand are available options for project management teams. It is believed that one of the reasons for this is the temporary nature of projects. This means that every project is unique and each of them may require various tools. Another reason is user satisfaction wherein a user will keep using a tool for as long as it meets its needs. With this, it can be concluded that what project management teams need is a tool that can adapt to the different types of tasks and hold many features that are easy to use. These can be found in Bridge24.
What is Bridge24?
Bridge24 is not another project management tool in the market but is an online application that bridges various project management software. Thus, it […]
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 […]
The use of cloud-based project management software has become increasingly popular, thanks to the convenience and ease-of-use that these tools provide. Many project management teams have taken advantage of the benefits that using these can bring. In fact, a good number of them vouch for the higher productivity that they have achieved ever since they started using these project management tools. The market today already brims with numerous software of this type and every company and team seems to be able to find one that suits their needs. And among the software that is being used is Asana.
Asana started in 2008 and was founded by Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein as a way to address many business’ methods to coordinate more smoothly. It understands how collaboration becomes increasingly difficult as an organization grows. The most basic function of Asana is to provide a ‘workspace’ where teams can track the progress of their projects. Users can create tasks and assign them to specific members, set due dates, and […]
Bridge24 is an innovative application that enables users to manage their projects, tasks, and reports much more easily. It enhances the reporting and exporting capabilities of online project management tools such as Trello, Asana, Basecamp, and AceProject. Recently, it launched another free Chrome extension, the Trello Chart Suite Chrome Extension. When added to Chrome, Trello users will be able to create charts in one click. This nifty reporting tool helps them understand better and quickly the distribution of cards. Similarly, they now have instant access to useful information in a visual form.
Features and Benefits
Trello Chart Suite uses the same reporting engine that runs under the hood of Bridge24. It is the same program that creates interactive charts from Trello data, as well as other project management tools that it connects dynamically with. Users on Chrome browser can generate a horizontal bar chart from their current Trello board, with counts per list, in one easy click of a button. Thus, they are able to see, not only […]
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.
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!
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.
Interchange wide fields for columns […]
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 […]

Bridge24, a powerful reporting and exporting application that integrates with Trello, Asana, Basecamp, and AceProject, has launched Trello Export Excel Suite. It is a free Chrome extension that easily exports card data of a Trello board in Excel format. It is now very easy for Trello users to have their card details and other project data viewable in Excel. There are situations when they need to share their tasks, status, progress, and other project information to stakeholders and partners who are not in Trello, or who prefer data in spreadsheet. Now it takes one click to accomplish this task.
