    “Warning” Basecamp give all rights to the person who sets it up. If the business owner is not named the “Owner of the Account”, they are at the mercy of the IT guy. Without a court order, BC will pander to the employee/subcontractor over the business owner. I wasn’t that happy with BC to begin with, but it is project management software that the IT guy suggested and now, maybe I know why, with this type of misguided policy. BC is very much designed to create and promote ransomware type situations. No telling what else is in their fine print, if they are setup to be this blatantly biased toward the employee and against the owner. You would think common (not so common anymore) sense would dictate the one who pays, is the rightful owner. Business owners, switch while you can. IT people – New revenue stream, set up business on BC for free, then hold them hostage until they pay. Thanks Basecamp, you’re swell!

    Thank you for the review and overview. I do contract work for a not-for-profit, and when they discovered the organizations they serve were using BaseCamp3, they joined as well. Right now, we are struggling to manage documents in BaseCamp3. Documents can be seen only as icons not files in a list, and we are having difficulty moving documents around from folder to folder or into subfolders if needed. There is a linking to Google documents, so perhaps the management of documents is really meant to be for projects only, while using Google Docs for storing files in a more flexible and complete file storage solution. As always, great reviews from Merchant Maverick.

        I have a small software company and work on different projects and different items everyday. After using basecamp for few months we moved to SPM Live (https://www.spmlive.com). It is a smart and simple tool. The All Projects page and Time Line are the key of this software.
        Problem with basecamp is that you don’t have item wise track in it, I can not see how many items are done/in progress/pending
        SPM Live (https://www.spmlive.com) highly recommended.
