Chaos, Organized

Basecamp is a company spread out across 26 different cities around the world. Our office is in Chicago, but everyone at Basecamp is free to live and work wherever they want. Many of us love working remotely.

How to use BaseCamp 101 is an online project-management tool designed to help people work together on projects. With Basecamp, you can discuss pieces of the project with others, you can assign tasks to others and track their progress, and you see how those tasks relate to your main project goal.When you create an account and log in you'll be taken to a "projects" page where all of your ongoing projects will be shown. On this page, you can choose to create a new project, or access a project you're already working on. To show you a little but about what you can do with a project, let's show you what an individual project is all about.Each project will give you a project name, a mini project description, and everything that's going on inside of the project. To access a project, just click it.Once inside the project, you can control and access a variety of features. Each project can include discussions, which are messages that you can send your teammates about project tasks, to-do lists, which allow you and your team to keep track of what needs to be done by certain dates, files, which you can upload from your computer, and documents, which are written files created directly on Basecamp. Basecamp also provides various metrics that make it easy to organize your project schedules and track progress. This can all be accessed by the options at the top of the screen. The next tutorial will explain these features in more detail.
