Basecamp 3 for iPhone and iPad
Getting around Basecamp 3 is easy! Here are a few tips to make you a pro. There are 4 tabbed sections: Home (all of your projects and teams), Hey! (what's new for you), Activity (everything that's happened), and Find... (search for something).
If you’re reading a message or chatting in a Campfire, for example, you’ll always see the name of the project at the top of the screen. Tap that to quickly jump somewhere else in the project. The options menu at the top right gives you quick access to all the actions you can perform on the current screen like Edit, Bookmark, or Add something new.
If you have Basecamp 3 installed you can get notifications on your iOS device instead of emails. You’ll be prompted to allow notifications when you first open Basecamp 3. You can enable or disable notifications later in iOS Settings.
Work can wait
Basecamp 3 allows you to snooze notifications for a few hours so you can focus, set up a schedule to only be notified during working hours, or turn off notifications completely. You can manage these settings from your iOS device while on the go.
Have more than one Basecamp?
If you have more than one Basecamp 3 account you’ll see them listed in the Basecamp menu. Tap to switch to a different account.
Note: Only accounts associated with the email address you’re currently signed in with will be listed.
Share with Basecamp
Enable Basecamp 3’s “share” extension to quickly post photos, videos, Tweets, web pages and more to a Campfire chat from any supported app without having to launch the Basecamp app.
Basecamp 3 notifications are fully compatible with Apple Watch.
We also have a dedicated Watch app. You can now check and manage your Hey! Unreads right on your wrist.
Here are a few things to try if Basecamp 3 isn’t working quite right.

Are you connected to the Internet? Basecamp 3 for iOS must be connected to a cellular data or wi-fi network while in use. Instructions for connecting to wi-fi.
