To-do lists

Make a new list

  1. Click "Add a to-do list" Make a new list

  2. Give the list a name, and start adding to-dos. Name the list

  3. You can assign the to-do to someone and add a due date. Dated to-dos will appear on your calendar. Dated to-dos

When you assign a to-do to someone else, they'll get an email notification. You won't receive that email if you assign a to-do to yourself.

Anyone with an open to-do will get an email the day before it's due. If you created the to-do, you'll get an email when someone completes it (unless you opt out).

  1. Attach files to your to-dos by clicking the 'Attach files' link. You can add a file or attach a Google Doc. The file will be attached directly to the to-do. Attach a file to a to-do List with attached file

You can see files attached to to-dos on any mobile device. You can attach new files to to-dos in the iPhone & Android apps, but not on the iPad app.

  1. Reorder to-dos by clicking on them and dragging up or down in the list. You can move to-dos to new lists, and reorder entire lists that way too.

    Reordering your lists is a great way to set priorities. First on the list? Highest priority! Watch a video on how to organize and prioritize your to-dos.

  2. Basecamp 2 doesn't have sublists, but here's a tip! Create your own outline by adding numbers to your main tasks, and asterisks to the subtasks. Click and drag to order your lists the way you need them. Comments on a list
