New in Basecamp 3: Profile Cards and the Latest API

By Jose Maria Delos Santos | September 19, 2016

logo-basecampBasecamp recently announced a feature that helps users express themselves more. The new Profile Cards allow people to express their status with a little personality. Busy people usually want to describe what they are currently working on. Sometimes, they want to announce to the rest of the team they are out of the office. The web-based PM tool now has a creative way in providing this information. Also, the latest API is now available for interested third-party integrators.

Unexpected Job Titles

The team at Basecamp noticed an interesting trend since last year. Apparently, the Job title field is being used in a more creative way. The field is supposed to contain information that describes a member’s official position or responsibility. For instance, a member’s Job title could be iOS Designer or Customer Support Manager. Instead, users put in more colorful descriptions such as Respectable Citizen or Quiet Optimist. Moreover, some are putting in what projects they are currently working on, out-of-office messages and even graphics.

Basecamp Helps Master The Art Of Effective Delegation

Master The Art Of Effective DelegationHave the owner track the delegated task via Basecamp. Ensure you have a structure in place so communication is honest when a project/task needs to be rescheduled or deadline renegotiated. Most of my clients find dividing a complex project into a series of smaller projects increases visibility, and ensures that weekly deadlines keep momentum. Then, if a deadline needs to be moved the impact isn’t as severe, since the deliverable is much smaller. Set a standard for renegotiation when a deadline will be missed. Most of my clients have a 48-72 hour advance notice when it appears a deadline is in peril.
