Only admins and the account owner can create companies.

Creating companies and groups

  1. To add people to a Company, go to your "Everyone" page and click the "Make a Company" button. Name your company and add users. As you type names, Basecamp will suggest people in your account.

    Only existing users can be added to companies or groups. Make sure you've added someone to your account before adding them to a group.

    Add to a company

    Tip: Add new people to an existing company by clicking "Everyone," and then the company's name.

  2. Create Groups within your Company by clicking the "Add a group" link below the company. Give it a name and select the members.

    You'll need to add people to the company before they can be in a group.
