The Message Board
When you want to post an idea that doesn't necessarily belong in a text doc or in a Campfire — but you do want others to see it, and for it to have a more permanent place to live — message board! It's a happy medium for those middle-of-the-road conversations.
The Message Board doesn't aggregate conversations that happen elsewhere — it's only for messages and discussions posted here.
To create a new message, enter the Message Board card and click
Post a new message.
The Tool Bar
Format your text with the tool bar.
You can add headings, and bulleted or numbered lists. Click the indent icons (or press Tab on your keyboard) to make a sublist.
You can embed images into your message. Click and drag pictures from your computer into the message to embed them in-line. (JPG, GIF, and PNG supported.)
The camera icon will activate your device's camera so you can take a picture and attach it to the discussion.
Attach a file to your discussion by clicking the attachment icon to attach a file, or click and drag the file from your computer.
To remove an attachment or picture from your draft, just click on it, then click the trash can.
Once you're finished composing, you can click to
Add/remove people at the bottom of the page.
When you're ready to post the message, click the green
Post this message button. If you're not ready to send the message just yet, click
Save Draft and Basecamp 3 will keep it saved for when you're ready.
