The Home screen

The Home screen is a dedicated place for everything that's happening in your company. Here you’ll see three sections for your company, teams, and all the projects you're working on. It looks like this:

Basecamp 3 Home screen

Let's take a look at each section one-by-one.

Your company

At the top of the Home screen, you'll see a space for your logo, your Company HQ, and links to My Stuff (your to-do assignments, bookmarks, drafts, and more.)

Company HQ section on the Home screen


Most companies have a few smaller teams, like Sales, Marketing, HR, Finance, etc. Basecamp's teams are the perfect place for those groups to share ideas, ask each other questions, share stuff they’ve seen that their colleagues would appreciate, etc. These aren’t projects with beginning and end dates — they are perpetual spaces.

You’ll make a project for all the work you’re keeping track of in Basecamp. Think “website redesign,” “marketing campaign,” “fundraiser,” or anything else you’ve got cooking.

At the very bottom of the Home Screen, you'll see a link to review any archived or deleted projects. Click that to restore or permanently delete them.
