Basecamp was the organizing system for all of our client work. Each client had their own folder in Basecamp, and each folder was shared between the team members involved with that client. Very organized. It brings together everyone involved with a single project, while always keeping each project in its own distinct silo.
  • Basecamp makes it easier to stay organized when you have a large number of concurrent projects, each with its own associated team and needs.
  • Streamlines communication about projects by keeping specific teams of people grouped together as needed, and keeping all project-related files in one go-to location.
  • Gives each project it's own distinct space, preventing clutter and other confusion between projects.
  • I do wonder if Basecamp could be better integrated with other software. We often had to resort to keeping important links in text files in Basecamp folders. I don't know what the obvious improvement is, but that wasn't always ideal.
  • I also wonder if the email notifications could be cleaned up a bit. I remember getting large numbers of email notifications, and you just become numb to them after a while, nullifying the intended effect. If there was a way to lump the notifications into a summary, thereby reducing the overall number of emails, that probably would have been better.
We used this at a creative digital agency. There were many clients, and Basecamp was very reliable and effective at keeping everything organized and clear. Each project dashboard makes it easy to see upcoming deadlines, checking or submitting recent progress updates, and keeping detailed to-do lists. You also have message board and chat features making communication an important feature that is optimized even for remote employees.

We have a Ceridian Dayforce user group that is being administered via Basecamp. I am a part of the group and it is only being used to facilitate communication with the group members. Basecamp is a good tool that integrates information from all questions initiated. It is a good repository of past information.
  • Easy to add new users and access user information.
  • Easy to integrate with email.
  • Data is organized well in Basecamp, by new discussions, calendar, projects etc.
  • Base camp is good for communicating with other users but not apt for project management.
  • It lacks advanced features in project management like milestones, and schedule charts.
  • Many reports or files can be stored within the system and accessed easily. But it is difficult to filter files by document type.
It is a good tool that integrates information from multiple users. It is great to connect with other users. I can review discussions by date if I have been away for a long time. It is easy to view and add comments in response to other questions.

If a question or response is unsuitable for the group, it can be dismissed.

Many consider Basecamp to be a project management tool. In my opinion, it should not be used for project management.

It is being used by an organization to oversee a sales team's activities within a new construction condo project. It helps the director follow up with teh sales team and ensure that they complete their tasks when it comes to contract and document signatures.
  • Shareable documents as a reference tool
  • History of each file or project
  • Creation of new sections for specific projects
  • Rearranging already uploaded documents within Basecamp without having to delete and upload again
  • Limiting permissions
  • Correcting or editing attached documents
it is excellent in following the sequence of a project from beginning to end. Everyone's actions and comments are recorded.

We have clients with multiple locations that require inspections, work, and reports. We started using Basecamp to keep track of the progress and status of each of these different locations. Basecamp allows us to create individual task lists, schedules, to-dos and upload specific files for each location to help organize our projects. Since Basecamp is an online application, we are able to use the program from anywhere without having to log onto our servers. This has allowed our remote employees to collaborate and manage projects while out in the field, increasing our overall company productivity.
  • Allows for a central location to manage multiple projects without having to log onto a VPN or company server.
  • Create schedules and task lists for a project, as well as help organize documents that are associated with that project.
  • It's a little clunky to use and doesn't always fit what our company needs, but it works for now.
  • Wish there was a way to turn off email notifications for when a user is added to a new project so our employees do not feel like they are getting spammed whenever a new folder is created.
It's good for simple organization of projects and allows our employees to use it remotely, but it's not always user friendly. There also seems to be quite a bit of useless notifications, such as seeing that someone changed who can access the project. I'm sure in some cases this is needed, but the notifications become cluttered and annoying at times. Wish there was a better way at filtering notifications or what information needs to be shared will all members of the project.

We use Basecamp to manage marketing, data entry, and personal tasks lists for a mid-size regional non-profit. Before using Basecamp, everything was managed through email and Excel. Conversations would digress, attachments would go missing, and the amount of emails going back and forth was simply overwhelming. Once we switched over to Basecamp, every project and every task has its own place.
  • It's incredibly easy to use. I believe the company intentionally doesn't build in a ton of features to ensure that users focus on their work not how to use the product.
  • The product is reasonably priced. In a market where competing tools charge per user, Basecamp gives you unlimited users and projects for one price.
  • Support is fantastic. If you ever do have a problem, their customer service folks get back to you quickly and clearly to keep you moving. No expensive support contracts here!
  • I've used Basecamp since the first edition, now called classic. While the company continually improves their core functionality, they also remove features used and loved by their customers. I give them credit for unapologetically sticking to when they feel is the right direction for their product, but their customers then have to balance upgrading to the new version or continuing to use an older version just to continue their current business processes.
  • No option to pre-select users on a project to receive notifications. When creating a new task/message/event, the creator has to manually select every person on the project who should receive notifications. While this is great for small teams or to ensure that not everyone gets every email, some businesses just work differently and need to involve many people in certain situations.
  • While the product is incredibly easy to use, there is not defined structure on how to use the software. I have noticed that this sometimes causes uncertainty and confusion among new users. It's up to each individual customer, and user to define their own business processes for how they use Basecamp.
Basecamp is an excellent software product for small groups to keep a project organized and discussion to be contained. Additionally, each user could create their own Basecamp projects organize their own personal projects or even their own life!

On the other hand, if your project is complex, has many users, or requires more structure, this is not the tool for you. I would not consider Basecamp if I used a specific project management methodology.

We use Basecamp to manage all projects and clients in the company. Once a client is signed on, a project is set up in Basecamp, and Tasks, To-Dos, and Discussions are created and assigned to the appropriate person or department. Once a task is completed, it is checked off and marked as completed. Any team member can add to the project or reassign tasks as needed, whether it is a review of the task, or required additional information.
  • Easy project set up.
  • Templates can be created for redundant projects or projects with similar tasks or set up.
  • You can easily add users to a project or send messages to collaborators on a project.
  • A task or To-Do can not be assigned to multiple people. One task can only be assigned to one person.
  • It's not too easy to get a round up of tasks or jobs that one person has, or exporting tasks or reassigning them in bulk.
  • There is no rating system to Prioritize tasks or To-Dos.
Copying a template to a New Project is easy, once a template is created. Tasks and To-Dos can be assigned to people quickly. A project can be viewed quickly to see what is left to do, but there is no prioritizing system within a project or by individual projects. It also is not so easy to review projects by the due date.

Basecamp is used by a very small portion of our team. This project management tool is the application of choice for our mobile developer team who work remotely. It helps us communicate with them in a space that they are used to, thus streamlining how we manage tasks, bugs and projects with them.
  • Very simple interface anyone can use
  • Inexpensive if you have a huge team or want to use it for multiple clients
  • An amazing founding company story and vision
  • Can't do the advanced things you can in other project management tools
  • Not the best at forecasting or measuring how many resources your teams have
  • Not as strong if you use it for everything (e.g., file storage and messaging)
Basecamp is a simple project management tool that has the potential to replace other tools you're currently using. Whenever it comes to apps like this you need to think what your team requirements are and how complicated you want your project management to be. If you need simple to-do lists and there's not a lot of volume in terms of users, projects and tasks, Basecamp could be the right tool for you.

In my role, I need to plan much more in advance and seeing the work unfold visually is the most important factor for me, so I wouldn't rate Basecamp as highly.

It is one of the creative tools that helps you in organizing your things and lists according to your choice. Now the projects are not in anymore scattered form, instead, they are in synchronization and listed in a pattern. It helps you by judging which one needs to be completed first.
  • It helps you in assigning tasks to your teammates well.
  • You can add notes or any attachments to your work and project.
  • You can keep the track of your work about how far it has gone.
  • You can make a message board and start talking about how to complete a task by chatting with your mates.
  • It should give notification if any update arrives from any employee about any project.
  • It should be providing a worksheet so that progress can be noted and editions made in the work can be seen as well.
  • I think its price should be lowered so that more people can take benefit from it.
Basecamp is highly suited for your work where you have to manage your work, organize your team and plan your schedules. It allows you to keep everything onboard even your professional conversations about a project like giving ideas and improvement about any specific area of work etc. It helps you in keeping your team together so that best work efficiency could be done.

Basecamp is a flexible, cost effective collaboration tool for large teams. In our project we are used it as a knowledge repository. The tool slowly gained traction and now being used across the whole organization. We could upload documents on Basecamp and ask for reviews and enhancements, comments from the team. We could track each team members tasks and ask for updates.
  • It is a great tool for large teams. There is no limit on the number of people one can add.
  • It comes with a good user interface. For people who were used to old tools, this is a god send.
  • It is a cloud application and does not need a big team to maintain it.
  • For a person working on multiple projects, it is difficult to flip between different portals.
  • Reports can be run out of basecamp. They are very basic, there is scope for improvement there.
  • There is no way to track time or record time in basecamp as of now.
We were a large team, so basecamp came in handy in collaborating and tracking tasks. We needed some training documentation to be made available for both internal and external users. Without Basecamp we would need to work with IT department, take several approvals, get a URL and give the training material to IT department, so that they can upload it. With Basecamp, there is no dependency on IT department. We created a portal and uploaded the training material and made it available to the audience within an hour.

I use Basecamp to organize with external vendors and collaborate on projects that are being done by agencies. It allows sharing of documents and ideas that aren't part of internal networks, so this is a way to add some transparency for others who might not have or have difficulty accessing information.
  • Share documents
  • Creating tasks
  • User interface
  • More expansive options to manage projects
It's suited for small teams or projects that are not all that complex. When you start adding requirements, you will look for other solutions at that point. It's also great for cross collaboration on one-off projects between departments or to create visibility for others around the company. Very straightforward and to the point.

Basecamp is being used by our Marketing and Admissions departments to communicate with our outside marketing firm. The platform has allowed us to share files and respond across multiple members of our team. Basecamp addresses the challenge of sharing large amounts of data and content in a format that is easy to access.
  • Provides an email thread that is easy to navigate.
  • Allows users to communicate without having to send multiple emails.
  • Provides a means to share large files.
  • I would love the calendar to be synced to Outlook (please forgive if this is a feature and I have just not figured out how it works).
Basecamp, in our case, is excellent for users at multiple offices or locations. It simplifies communication and storage of projects for access for all members, provides daily updates on the projects, and allows for consistent communication to all involved. It might not be as appropriate if a group/company already has a common method for project management.

Basecamp is one of the superb project management tools that is being used widely all over the world. Indeed a collaborative application for those who work mainly in a team on a daily basis. In order to make certain group projects, assignments and presentation it’s a must-have application with all these amazing features. An interesting feature that I personally like the most is its sandbox-style that gives users a good place to make conversation with colleagues and clients as well.
  • Its messaging board is amazing. It keeps track of the incoming and outgoing messages in a useful queue manner.
  • It is an effective tool.
  • It offers the ability to make to-do lists which decreases my workload.
  • Sometimes there are certain connectivity issues that slow down the working process.
  • Although I like everything in it but occasionally when I have to export my work to excel format as they have no feature for that so I feel a bit annoyed and confusing.
  • Apart from this, I like each and everything about this product.
It is a great product for our company and giving excellent performance. Automatic check-ins are also a blessing in disguise for every kind of organization. This is a simple and interactive application for those organization where there is a need to do many tasks within a team. It is also an effective software that takes less effort to set up than others.

We tried out using Basecamp for a little while for our Customer Success Team, mainly during onboarding new customers. There are lots of steps to our onboarding process, so Basecamp allowed us to track the progress of each customer account while also sharing resources that are personalized for their onboarding.
  • Basecamp has a very simple and effective product that is easy to navigate and not overwhelming compared to other project management type tools out there.
  • Their price point is superior to any other tools out there. You can have unlimited users for just $99 per month and 500 GB of cloud storage.
  • Their campfire chat area is a great alternative to emails. This plus to-do lists saved a lot of time in drafting follow up emails and checking in with accounts.
  • They have virtually no reporting within the system, which makes it very difficult to figure out how to improve systems and optimize.
  • Their integrations feel a bit lacking, especially again with any reporting tools out there.
  • The lack of customization has been frustrating at times. For example, there isn't a way to hide whatever you want in a project, so we've had some customers confused about certain sections where we've had to explain to them to just ignore those.
Basecamp is great if you're tight on a budget and want a simple, yet powerful tool that can handle lots of users. It's also great if you're on a budget, especially as your team and clientele grow. If you have a repeatable process that you can build out into a template of to-dos, then that would be another reason to use Basecamp.

We use Basecamp internally with team members and external clients. It is being used and has been used company wide as it addresses two key problems that existed before we moved to Basecamp. First is keeping everyone up to date—the information is kept in one place. The second is when someone joins a team or project, Basecamp allows them to catch up without the need to send copies of emails and files as the newcomer can find all the information, discussions and files in one place.
  • File sharing
  • Notes
  • Ability to add or drop members
  • Deeper Google Drive integration
  • Integration with Slack
  • Better search
Basecamp is great for teams. It is really useful for teams that work in multiple locations. The mobile access has been improving over time and has gotten to the point where 95% of my use is able to be done on mobile. Email of notices is great but It is less appropriate for people who prefer to live outside of email and need to be aware of what is happening. Notifications in-app help, but they can become annoying.

Basecamp was used to communicate and track a project when we were working with another development team from an outsourced company.
  • Easy and simple to use
  • Find all project-related info, communications, tasks and files in one place
  • Easy to collaborate or discuss with teams who are not in the same office
  • Free to use
  • Getting updates is easy and documented
  • The discussion thread can become cluttered
  • Unable to sort the discussion thread messages by time, etc.
  • Unable to track/link a task with time
To collaborate on small projects with teams who are not physically present in the same location or in the same company.

We use it as a project management platform to organize different projects and initiatives.
  • Easy to use.
  • Works well on iPhone.
  • Good value.
  • It would be nice to customize notifications to not just be all or none and to select preferences by the project.
Basecamp has been a great tool to get our teams working together and to share information. We haven't been using it as much this past year, and I am not sure why, but 2-3 years ago it was really great for our organization.

We used Basecamp to streamline several processes during the lifetime of the campaign cycle: specifically trafficking creatives, building creatives and creating media plans. As an organization, we were comprised of offices in seven different markets that were all serviced by a centralized digital department and we wouldn't have been able to manage campaigns across the board if it weren't for Basecamp.
  • Intuitive and easy to pick up and start using.
  • Great system of reminders and notifications to keep everyone up to date.
  • The ability to assign to do's and view other's to-do lists is super invaluable to me as a manager.
  • Sometimes navigating to areas I frequent is a bit clunky.
  • I wish I could at least see projects I'm not invited to, though ideally, I'd love to have a setting to just automatically give me access to everything. As a manager, it's always tedious having to request access to campaigns all the time.
I've always used it for project and ad campaign management and I think it excels at both. We used it as a central meeting hub for sales, operations, and creative teams as well as the client in some instances.

Honestly, in all the instances I've used Basecamp it's worked exceptionally well. I'm sure there are instances where Basecamp is not ideal but in the Advertising world, I've always thought it was a great fit for our needs.

I first used Basecamp in college and later used it in an advertising position. It was the easiest way to keep track of client projects and delegate tasks with the social media department, It's very popular with regional clients because it is the one platform that they were able to access alongside the Vegas team to stay on track.
  • Used to delegate tasks - This is so helpful for the internal agency and clients to keep track of ongoing projects.
  • Status keeper - Would refer to basecamp during weekly status meetings.
  • Built-in messaging board - You can communicate through basecamp which made it easier to keep all conversations in one place.
  • Takes time to learn - It's not as straightforward as other platforms but once you get the hang of it it's really useful, it just takes time.
  • Should be easier to create monthly or weekly reminders - To-dos have to be manually put on calendar vs having a reminder.
Having regional clients can be tricky but Basecamp kept everyone in the know. We can separate things out by campaign and it was easy having different people contributing. I also used it in college where we kept track of assignments and upcoming modules to work on.

We used Basecamp to be part of a joint promotion on Facebook - It was a giveaway where 12 various businesses needed to access and share info. it was a great 'all in one' place to keep things organised and to see at a glance what was completed and what still needed to be done.
  • Easy to see what actions had been completed and what was outstanding.
  • Quick way to get a message to multiple users.
  • It all worked really well for our promotion - nothing extra was needed.
We loved the way we could all share our information for the joint promotion and it was really clear of actions and what was still needed to be completed at a glance The joint message thing was sometimes a pain - I would rather just see everyone else's info on the portal but they had the option to share with all which sometimes was not needed.

At the company level, Basecamp serves as primarily as an information hub. We are starting to implement more project management processes with tasks and project boards. At the department level, Basecamp is our project management tool in Marketing. We track projects and tasks, share information, and manage reviews. We also use Basecamp to project manage and share information with external agencies.
  • Information sharing and communication
  • Simple user interface
  • Great mobile app
  • More sophistication in organization
  • More tools/widgets within project boards
  • Add resource management
Basecamp is great for companies seeking to centralize internal communication, while also providing the opportunity for special teams to operate within their own project hub. Basecamp is not super overwhelming for users, so this works great for companies that aren't not familiar with sophisticated project/resource management tools.

We use Basecamp for our team projects. It's used by our marketing team and sales team. It allows us to better manage our time and get tasks done in a timely manner.
  • Accountability for tasks: it's clear who is responsible for what.
  • Team communications: we use Basecamp to communicate so we don't waste time scheduling extra meetings.
  • We would love to see more integrations -- we use HubSpot for our marketing activities.
I like how easy it is to use Basecamp, but we decided to switch to HubSpot completely because they have their own project management system now. I would say if you are a small company with small teams, Basecamp can be your go-to solution, but once you grow bigger and need more integrations/features, you might want to find something more advanced.

We use Basecamp for project management in my department. We also use it with our 3rd party vendors to manage and edit projects as necessary. We are solving many business problems using Basecamp. We save time and resources by allowing multiple members of our team to manage and edit projects on an as-needed basis.
  • Flat monthly fee
  • Chat availability
  • Easy to use
  • You need to pay for additional features
  • Export feature is difficult
  • Learning curve can be long for some
Well suited for small teams wanting to collaborate and edit projects on their time. Not well suited for larger teams and departments that need to manage big projects. The discussion forum is difficult to find and the chat feature isn't always personalized. You need to pay for additional features that could be needed for your team, so it's best to decide what your teams need beforehand.

We were collaborating with a US-based company for our marketing efforts and were using Basecamp as a collaborative tool to share various documents, meeting recordings, and discussions. We only use it for our department but considering its ease of use and utility, we have been pushing to get it in other departments too.
  • Document sharing
  • Discussion around Basecamp is great
  • Flat pricing seemed good, although it was the client that was paying for it
  • Reporting is not very comprehensive
  • The interface is slightly cluttered
  • Highly customizable features confuse the admin at times
It is great for ad-hoc projects where you need quick collaborations and on the fly reporting and discussions but you need an admin to do the initial setup and handling. It may not be very suitable for comprehensive project management and collaboration and an absolute no-no if you need something for just the end-users.

Basecamp is used to organize tasks and increase transparency and accountability across the administration of the company. Each department uses the program to manage the way that works best for them. For my department, I use it to track current digital projects, including a new website revamp, social media campaigns, and sales and marketing alignment activities.
  • Seeing who's associated with a project or task.
  • Understanding how much has been accomplished.
  • Ability to move around tasks to different projects.
  • Better tutorials/education on best practices.
  • Templates.
  • Personalization.
Basecamp is great for managing tasks with specific goals with deadlines. I wouldn't use it for business planning or strategy. Perfect for small companies or teams as it might get unwieldy for bigger groups.

About Basecamp

Basecamp is a web-based project-management tool developed by 37signals in Chicago and launched in 2004. The Ruby on Rails framework was extracted from the Basecamp project.

Basecamp offers features standard to project management platforms, including to-do lists, wiki-style web-based text documents, milestone management, file sharing, time tracking and a calendar, and a messaging system. Mobile accessibility is supported. Notably, it supports unlimited users. It also offers integration with 37signals' own Campfire product, which expands the group messaging functionality of the core platform. Customization, accessibility, and functionality are extended further by the broad range of apps available for free from 3rd parties. A 2-month free trial is available. Pricing is dependent upon space requirements and the number of concurrent projects, not the number of users.
