Manage People

Administrators can add people, remove people, change their info, and even what someone can access. Here's how to do a few common tasks:

If you need to take manage people, first head to Adminland by tapping on the Home button, then tapping on the 🔑Adminland link in the upper right corner.

Home screen with an arrow pointing to Adminland

From there you'll want to tap the Manage people option.


Add someone new to this account

When you've got someone new you'd like to add to your account (and maybe even several existing Projects or Teams) this is the place to do it. First, click the big green button to Add someone new.

Next fill out their info.

Adminland 'Add someone new...'' step 1

After that, you'll get the chance to either add them to existing Projects and Teams on the account, or just send them an invitation email.

Change someone's info

Has a teammate or client contact get a new title? Or perhaps someone made a typo when entering an email address? No worries, you can easily update their info.

First, find the person whose info you'd like to update, and tap the edit link under their name.

From there, you can edit their name, email address, title, the company they belong to, their time zone. You can remove them from the account too.

Note: Once someone (who isn't a client) has joined Basecamp, you won't be able to edit their name or email address anymore—they'll have to make those changes themselves.


Change what someone can access

If you need to add someone (or remove them) from a few (or a bunch) of Projects and Teams at once, this provides a quick way to tweak what someone can see. First find the person, then tap the Change access link below their name.

That'll take you to a screen where you can pick which projects or teams they can access.

Remove someone from the account

When someone leaves the team — or if someone's added by mistake — you'll want to remove them from your Basecamp account. Don't worry though, when you remove someone from your account everything they've posted to the account stays where it is. First, find the person and tap the edit link under their name.

Adminland 'Here's everyone on the account' page with a circled 'edit' link under a person's name

At the very bottom of the edit screen, tap the link that reads I want to remove ______ from this account...

Lastly, confirm that you're okay with all the effects of removing someone, then click the big red Remove _____ completely button at the bottom to remove them.
