Calendar Enhancements in Bridge24 – New Release

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). 

Calendar View

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.

If you are a Trello user, Custom date […]

Shared Searches across users in your Bridge24 account – New Release

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!

Sharing Searches

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.

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.

Subtotals and Totals for Reports using Bridge24

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.

Subtotals for reports

When a field is populated by numeric values, you can now add the ability to view summary information at the bottom, including the sum. This can be used, for example, in a field displaying expenses. The expenses can be summed for each group level, and as well, have a final total. In the example below, the report is grouped by Assignee, and 2 Custom fields from Asana called Budget and Time are added, with sums for each group, and a Total at the bottom.

How to keep track of your project with Bridge24?

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.

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?

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!
