This weekend we pushed an update that improves the accuracy of the "People on this project" block in the sidebar on a Basecamp project's overview screen.
The block used to list someone's last login time, but if people had their login information stored by their web browser then the last login time could have been weeks ago even if they just accessed a project seconds ago.
The change does away with this inconsistency. Instead of "last login" we now show "latest activity." This way if someone logged in a few days ago, but just accessed a project a few minutes ago, we can show an accurate "few minutes ago" access in the list.
If someone hasn't accessed the site for 30+ days, then we say "Hasn't logged in recently." Important Exception: Part of this update required that we reset the tracking information so everyone that hasn't accessed the site since Feb 24th will be marked as "Hasn't logged in recently." Once people log in and access a project the information will be updated.
This update also makes this data accurate on a per-project basis. The data used to be based on an access to any project in your account. So if someone accessed Project A, and you were looking at Project B's overview screen, you'd see a last access update in Project B even though the person didn't access Project B. This update changes that. Each project overview screen shows activity for that project, not all projects. Now you can tell who accessed which projects and when.
Thanks again for your continued support and feedback. This change is based on that feedback, so keep it coming.
