the tools available in every Basecamp project

“It's in Basecamp.”

Basecamp combines all the tools teams need to get work done in a single, streamlined package. With everything in once place, your team will know what to do, where things stand, and where to find things they need.


To-do Lists

Create to-do lists for all the work you need to do, assign tasks, and set due dates. Basecamp will follow up on overdue tasks for you.

Message Boards

Keep the entire conversation about a specific topic together on a single page. No more digging through email or trying to reassemble a story from a series of fragmented replies.

“Previously we used few different tools stitched together, and all information was always scattered around those tools. In Basecamp, all things have their place - when I need something, I always know where to look.”

-Rolandas Barysas, MB Canarius

Schedules

Every project in Basecamp includes a schedule that displays any dated to-dos and events for that project. Everyone on the project can see it, so they’ll all know what’s coming up.

Documents & File Storage

Every project includes a space to share documents, files, and images. Since everyone on the project has access, people will know exactly where to find everything.

“We can see exactly what needs to be done and when. We were missing tasks and deadlines before we found Basecamp. We're much more efficient now.”

Real-time Group Chat

Basecamp’s real-time group chat (Campfires) lets you ask quick questions and get equally quick answers. All without reaching for a separate app.


Check-in Questions

Stop wasting time on status meetings. Checkins let you ask your team questions on a regular basis, with all the replies rolled up in one easy-to-digest thread.

“I've tried a million things with clients. I work really closely with them, and finding something clients will use to collaborate with me is difficult. My clients just "get" Basecamp, right away, and use it all the time.”

--Nathan Snelgrove, Wildfire Studios

Email Forwards

Important emails shouldn’t stay stranded in an inbox. Forward them into Basecamp where you can discuss with your team.
