Flexible Automatic Check-ins

Basecamp 3 is a productivity tool that supports better organization and higher efficiency. For instance, automatic check-ins can replace the holding of status meetings or regular requests for updates. Instead, users can easily post an answer to a question each day, week or month. They can write what they have worked on for that day or what they plan to finish that week. Users can also ask and answer questions that allow the team to know each other better.

The latest version now allows users to pick any specific day of the week they want to send the reminder. They can send it either daily, once a week, every other week, or once a month. Furthermore, users have more option at what time they want to send the check-ins, either at the start of the day at 9am, an earlier time at the end of the day at 4:30pm, or any specific time.
