We wanted to create a tool that allows you to create fully customizable reports from Trello data by combining charts and text fragments.

What it does

You can construct a report and store it as PDF or schedule it to be sent to your colleagues via email or Slack.

How I built it

We first built a chart editor which allows creating custom charts such as line or bar charts. We also developed a List view which allows creating lists of issues. Finally, we created a report editor which allows combining charts and task lists into a report.

Challenges I ran into

There were no ready made chart libraries that would work out-of-the-box so we ended up customising the charts quite a lot. Turning a HTML report into a PDF caused a few headaches as well.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The editor is simple yet powerful. The final reports look beautiful.

What I learned

With the right team, anything is possible

What's next for Screenful Reports

We'll add things like more complex layouts, new widget types etc.
