Really good for group work

2017-06-22

Excellent app which is used on a statewide basis for the managers and works extremely well. Easy to communicate with each other, provide ideas and brainstorm with everyone.

Pros

Can have hundreds of people on the system.

Cons

Sometimes there's group emails which can get annoying if people don't opt out of certain convos.

Gets the job done but could improve

2019-02-12

Pros

can easily assign tasks w/ all relevant info and due date to a user and can keep convos contained at the task level.

Cons

i don't like that comments can only be made in the string as the newest comment vs. you being able to comment off another comment and create a thread within the task.

A good tool for our Facebook group to plan projects outside other platforms.

2018-07-19

Pros

Putting chat, calendars, files all in one simple place. Nothing gets lost in email, nobody can use "I didn't notice" for missing deadlines, nobody can say "I don't have that file".

Cons

The message board seemed simplified and not good for long extended convos over time.

Keeps Everything in One Place!

2018-11-02

Pros

The final convo is located where everyone can see it and I'm assured I have all of the latest information about a project.

Cons

Would like it to be more ascetically pleasing. It's pretty straightforward.

Big Basecamp Fan

2019-03-19

Very good.

Pros

You can tailor Basecamp functionalities to your exact project/company needs, whether it be as involved as assigning deadlines to various stakeholders and having one centralized place to exchange files, or simply just one place to streamline convos. Keeps everything organized.

Cons

Mass email alerts (but yes, those can be turned off).

Much Easier Alternative to Email.

2017-02-01

I also love the ability to tag specific people in a convo to make sure they see certain comments.

Pros

Super easy to use, nice interface. Very responsive support team.

Cons

The only thing I wish Basecamp did better was with their name tagging ability. Right now you HAVE to use the @ sign to start a tag. I wish it would realize you typing in someone's name and suggest to tag that person similar to Facebook.
