Click the Add an event button.

Enter the details about your event. Events can be single day or multi-day. You can have full-day events, or events with a start and end time. Select the members who are involved. Basecamp 3 can send them a notification about the event. Add a note to give your team more info.

For all-day events, you'll get a reminder at 9 a.m. on the first day; for events with specific times, you'll get a notification one day before, and one hour before the start time.

After you save your event, you can add it to your personal calendar, using the iCal options.
