To-Dos

Divvy up tasks in your Project by creating lists.

Project to-do page

To start a new list, give it a name and click Create to-do list. You can also add notes, files or images about the list.

Start adding to-dos and assigning them to users. When you begin typing their name in the "Assign" field, Basecamp 3 will display matching results.

Assignment interface for a to-do

When you assign a to-do to someone else, they'll receive a notification. Once it's done, they can click in the checkbox next to the to-do to mark it as complete.

To-dos can also be assigned a due date or a span of dates — select the radio button for the type you need. Then, select the date(s). The person assigned will get a reminder notification at 9:00 AM the day before the due date and again at 9:00 AM on the day it’s due.

Leave a note, pictures or files if the to-do needs more detail.

To edit a list or to-do title, click on it, then click Edit at the top left. When you're done, click Save changes.

Move items in your list or between lists by clicking and dragging the small grip icon to the left. Drop them in their new place. You can do this with entire lists, too!
