Basecamp was just reimagined and redesigned from the ground up. Here's a list of some of the great new features in the all new Basecamp.
Nope. Your existing Basecamp account stays the same. The Basecamp you've been using has been renamed Basecamp Classic. The all new Basecamp is now called Basecamp. Both versions will live side by side as separate products. You can continue to use Classic, you can switch to the new Basecamp, or you can use both of them together. It's up to you.
No. You only get a new Basecamp account if you want one. If you don't do anything, or you don't care about the new Basecamp, everything remains the exact same for you. If you do want to try the new Basecamp, follow this simple step-by-step guide to get started.
Nope. Switching to the new Basecamp is entirely optional for current Basecamp Classic customers. No one is being forced to switch or even forced to try the new Basecamp. Basecamp Classic is not going away. If you prefer Classic you can keep using Classic.
Absolutely. If you're a current Basecamp Classic customer, you'll get an unlimited-usage 60-day free trial on the new Basecamp. Check out our step-by-step guide to see how to import copies of your current projects into the new Basecamp.
Nothing changes in your current account. All your data, projects, users, files, and everything else are untouched. Everything is the same as it always was. Classic and the new Basecamp don't share data - they are completely separate products. Changes in one won't affect the other. You can keep using both together or pick one after your free 45 day trial on the new Basecamp.
If you'd like, yes. For example, you can continue to use Classic for your existing projects but start up new projects using the new Basecamp. Or you can dive right into the new Basecamp and copy all your Classic projects over. It's entirely up to you. What you do in Classic has no effect on the new Basecamp and vice versa.
You can import projects from Classic into the new Basecamp, but you can't import projects from the new Basecamp back into Classic. The import is one-way from Classic into new. You can choose to copy projects one at a time or all at once. It's entirely up to you. When you copy a project from Classic to the new Basecamp, it's archived in Classic for safe keeping. Nothing is deleted in your Classic account.
Basecamp Classic and the new Basecamp don't offer the same features, so some data in Classic won't make it into the new Basecamp. We list the data that won't be imported during the actual import process so you can review prior to doing the import.
If you decide to import projects from Classic into the all new Basecamp, we'll copy your users over at the same time. People will only have access to see the projects they could see before - no one sees any projects in the new Basecamp that they couldn't see in Classic. If someone was an admin in Classic, they'll be an admin in the new Basecamp too. Your users will be able to log into the new Basecamp with the same username and password they used to log into Classic.
Data in Classic is separate from data in the new Basecamp. A change in one doesn't affect the other. If you copy a project from Classic into the new Basecamp, it's just a copy - the original stays in Basecamp Classic. If you decide to manage the project using the new Basecamp, the version in Classic stays just as it was before you copied it over.
Classic and the new Basecamp are entirely different products. They have a similar set of core features (to-dos, messages, files, and a calendar), but the features are executed differently in each product. The new Basecamp also includes dozens of brand new features that Classic doesn't have, but it also doesn't have some of the features that Classic has. For example, at launch the new Basecamp doesn't include time tracking. Over time we'll be adding more features to the new Basecamp. At this time we're not sure if we'll be adding time tracking. We may decide to integrate tightly with an excellent third party time tracking product, we just aren't sure right now.
Your Basecamp Classic URL (which looks like yoursubdomain.basecamphq.com) stays the same. New Basecamp accounts are hosted on the basecamp.com domain. New Basecamp accounts don't have subdomains, so all accounts are at basecamp.com.
Depending on which plan you have, the all new Basecamp is either totally free or deeply discounted for you. Review the special pricing page to see how it works. The discount is automatic, too.
Regardless of what you do in the new Basecamp, all your data in Classic remains safe in Classic. If you try the new Basecamp for 60 days, and you just don't like it, you can just go back to using the Classic account you already had. You can just pick up where you left off. Everything that was there is still there - all your projects, data, users, etc.
The majority of our design and development efforts moving forward will be focused on the all new Basecamp, but we'll continue to support Classic as long as customers continue using it. We expect that to be for many many years.
We don't have public roadmaps, but we do have a lot of great things in mind that we weren't able to include in the first release. We're already working on some of these new features. We'll also be listening to customer feedback to see what people want. As always, we'll consider customer ideas and suggestions when deciding what new features to build. We'll be taking our time when designing new features to make sure they're very well built and super easy to use.
