Basecamp for Project Management Pros
Unlike alternatives to BaseCamp, this smart app lets users keep the feedback from their clients, including their approvals on the record. There is also pings function so that team members can quickly discuss in real time. Users love the instant or direct messages that they can do using it. Another useful feature of the app is that it has the “Work Can Wait” function, allowing users to set their schedule so that they don’t get notifications on the weekends. Also, users can make use of the Campfires feature that let them have a group chat with everyone on the team. And if a team member did a great job, you can simply click the button ‘Applause’ to show that you care. Even if someone is not a part of a project, he or she can also receive anything that shared with him or her. Aside from these, there are other cool features and functions that users will surely love in this app. In fact, it also has Basecamp Timeline, Cascading Notifications and Drafts.
A few BaseCamp reviews noted that the app might be hard to use for first time users. Nevertheless, existing users also noted that it did not take them a long time to understand and use the app. For some, they are concerned with some ‘permissions,’ including the app’s ability to access and find accounts on their device.
