Here is the signup form for Basecamp Classic: https://signup.37signals.com/basecamp/Free/signup/ I just registered an account and it works, but I don’t know for how long it will be still available. Update: as of 4/12/2012 the link for sign up looks down. It's unfortunate, especially since there's no API for the new basecamp. Update2: As of May 18th, 2012 ...

We have the ability to send Basecamp Attachment to Dropbox and also Sync New Dropbox File to Basecamp.

Open word, create a hyperlink, copy and paste it into the basecamp editor then you can get a nice MyLink Make sure you clean up the garbage code added by Word. Yes, this is how you roll on basecamp. I think they believe the user should implement suboptimal features so they don't have to build (and maintain) the ideal ones.

When the New Basecamp launched, there was an article or blog discussing the editor; but for the life of me I can't find it now. Yet here are the basics of what it mentioned: The editor is meant to be WYSIWYG, and does not interpret Textile or any other markup language.

Outlook can easily be set to use HTML by default rather than Rich Text. You could ask your users to make this setting. I stopped using Rich Text years ago when I realized it's not very compatible with non-Outlook clients. If you're having Basecamp problems even under HTML mode, I would run this by 37Signals Support. You could forward them an example email ...

You're in good company - a lot of people miss the Private facilities (nice write-up here). In one of 37Signal's early communications during the release of the new system, they stated that they are "rethinking" Private, and that they may add support for this in the future. When you look at their "New stuff" link, you can tell that they're working hard on ...

We've started using internal user accounts as psuedo-statuses. So we've created backlog, ready to test, ready to push That way, we can keep the tasks organized in their original to-do lists, even if backlogged (assigned to the 'backlog' user).

Basecamp has 3 levels of hierarchy: Milestones -> ToDo Lists -> ToDos (though a ToDo List doesn't necessarily need to relate to a Milestone). You can change the Milestone that a ToDo List relates to by Editing the ToDo List and selecting a different Milestone, as follows: You can also change the ToDo List that a ToDo belongs to. Under Basecamp's To-Dos ...
