Basecamp Calendar is one of the ultimate appointment management services around. You maintain complete control over which other users are able to view or access your calendar. An event that is added can be collaborated on and discussions will be saved to the event. Files, documents and presentations can also be saved to the event. Basecamp will send you (and any other users you choose to list) email reminders for each event. The interface is simple and scrolling through events over multiple years can be done in seconds, no need to browse month-to-month to find prior or future events.
Basecamp is efficient and organized. The service uses single-page projects to keep all aspects of the project organized in one area for simple use. No need to search through databases of files, Basecamp keeps everything in one centralized area where it can be accessed from a single page. The single-page project management is very efficient for managing case files. Each project can be given a name and a description. Below this is a discussions area for collaboration with coworkers, legal aides, sources and clients. All comments and discussions are saved to the project.
Below the discussions area is the To-Do lists. Anything that needs to be done is in this area with a checkbox beside it. Once an assignment has been completed, the box can be checked and the entry will be greyed out but still visible. Below this area is the file storage area. Each file is shown with the option to download or to view the file with discussions so it can be collaborated on with others. Text documents are stored below the file area and can be viewed. Drafts, notes, ideas, concepts- anything that is entered in text related to the project is saved here.
Basecamp mobile allows users to take Basecamp with them anywhere they go. The downside is that the developers only created an app for the iPhone, users with other platforms must login through the web browser, although there are several third-party apps that bring Basecamp directly to these platforms.
