Overall Satisfaction with Basecamp

Basecamp was used at my organization for the marketing team/department. It makes project management and collaboration easy for our creative teams. We also used it in collaboration with external agencies such as our web developer, SEO and content partners.
  • Create specific projects with customizable access to each.
  • Discussion/message board keeps all content for one topic together.
  • Lots of add-ons to expand its capabilities.
  • Easy to use.
  • No tags/labels to categorize work.
  • No time tracking.
  • Tons of notifications! Wish it were easier to opt out/customize.
  • Basecamp improves efficiencies of our team by keeping everyone on track and also staying aligned with our external partners.
  • Helps us streamline projects.
Asana has an expanded list of capabilities over Basecamp. If you're looking for a simple tool, Basecamp is your go-to. If you need something that makes it easy to schedule recurring tasks, dependencies, mass updates, seeing a project map, and capacity of your team, Asana is the way to go.

It's a great project management tool if you want to keep things simple. Communication features and ability to keep track of who is working on what and when is great. Although it has its limitations, it’s a decent tool for the price. If you're looking for an all-in-one tool with time tracking and extended features, you might opt for a different tool.
