Basecamp is an essential component of many organization's project management process - it's been an absolute game changer for keeping team members on the same page. With that in mind, we've made it easier than ever to stay on top of those activities completed in Basecamp.

How it works

When integrated, these activities from Basecamp will automatically display on your timeline within Timely:

  • When you mark a To-Do as completed

  • When you submit a comment on a given board/topic

  • When you add a new message to a board *this is specific to the “Message Board” widget that can be added to boards

  • When you answer a question posed by a “Automatic Check-ins” widget *this is specific to the “Automatic Check-ins” widget that can be added boards

Pro Tip: In the wider screenshot above you'll see Basecamp memories from two sources, the Basecamp integration and the Memory app.

Integration memories reflect the activities completed in the tool along with the time they were captured - they aren't meant to capture the amount of time spent in Basecamp.

Memory activities include the website or application along with the duration of time spent working there, but might not have the broader context such as the To-Do activity. The integration and Memory work in concert to ensure a complete view of your day is captured!

Get Basecamp connected

  1. Log in to Timely and click the Settings (gear) icon

  2. Head over to the "Ecosystem" tab

  3. Scroll down and then click "connect" next to the Basecamp integration

  4. Click the "Connect new account" button and follow the prompts to sign into Basecamp

  5. Click the "Yes, I'll allow access" button to finalize this process


How do I remove the Basecamp integration?

You can disconnect the integration at any time! Simply head over to the Settings < Integration section within Timely, click the Basecamp icon again, and then click the "Remove" button.

Please note: removing the integration will not remove any memories already created via the Basecamp integration.

How far back will Timely sync over Basecamp activity?

You'll see the last 30 days of Basecamp activity on your timeline.

If another Basecamp user marks my To-Do as complete, will that create a memory on my timeline?

No, Timely will only capture the actions above that you yourself complete in Basecamp - the actions of other team members aren't included at present.

Does this integration work with all versions of Basecamp?

Timely is able to integrate with Basecamp version 4 specifically at this time.
