Here are some add on tips for using Basecamp:

Use bookmarks

Set up bookmarks for your favourite files so that you don’t waste time looking for them over and over again.

Keep an eye on your timeline

This useful little feature is at the bottom of every Basecamp and shows everything that’s happened since the very beginning of a project. If you’re looking for something vital, it’s a good practice to keep track of this.

Subscribe to Project Updates via Email

Sidenote: If you get any notification on a particular thing on basecamp then you instantly receive the current update through the mail but if the user makes any changes to that current thread you cannot track that via mail.
