Basecamp Classic

Author: FreshBooks

Note: the Basecamp integration only works with Basecamp Classic. Those using the current version of Basecamp will not be able to use this feature in FreshBooks.

A new way to collaborate on projects

Basecamp is a clean and simple way to collaborate with your team, and manage your projects. Connect Basecamp to your FreshBooks account and use FreshBooks timesheets to keep track of your projects, or create FreshBooks invoices directly from your completed Basecamp projects.

How it works

There are two options with the Basecamp integration. If you're already tracking time to your projects in Basecamp, you can pull your projects and time entries directly into an invoice, set your rates and send your invoice off to your clients. Or, if you're looking to take advantage of the time tracking features in FreshBooks, you can pull your projects and tasks into FreshBooks and use the FreshBooks time tracker as you work on your projects.

Basecamp - summed up

Basecamp is great for teams looking for a new approach to project collaboration.  Share files, meet deadlines, assign tasks, centralize feedback, and make your clients smile. Basecamp tackles project management from an entirely different angle: A focus on communication and collaboration. Basecamp allows your team to effectively communicate the work they've been doing, and helps keep your clients in the loop.
