Earlier this week we launched a big Basecamp update that allows people to attach files and leave comments on to-dos and milestones. Great uptake so far: About 10.5% of the comments posted in the past 72 hours were comments posted on to-dos and milestones. More details at "Basecamp comment improvements: 72-hours later" [SvN].
Some love from customers at that original announcement post:
Bruno Bergher: "This is great! To-do deep linking is a great feature by itself, but being able to attach a layout to a to-do list or comment on it is just great. We’ve been waiting for this.""
Philip Arthur Moore: "Wow. Up until now I had been really frustrated with the disconnectedness between the messages and the to-dos. You guys have truly outdone yourselves this time around. Thank you for making all of our businesses run a bit more smoothly."
afruit: "This is an example showing how the addition of a feature can actually make the overall system seem simpler. Instead of working around the concept that I had to always rely on messages for ongoing dialog, I now can just settle on the concept that I can create a dialog anywhere."
Tearful Appreciation: "I do believe I’m going to cry. Yes. Yes, now I’m crying."
Chris Nagele: "This is a really big deal. A single feature changes Basecamp from a communication tool to a task management system. "
Chad Davis: "I came across the todo comments yesterday and it absolutely made my whole day. Thank you so much, it really makes a big difference."
Richard Frost: "Love this update, already found it very useful and only been using it 1 day, keep up the great work!"
Jonas Cronfeld: "AWESOME – it changes the whole way we use basecamp. And it’s so much for the better!"
Chance Bliss: "I’m very excited about this update. With direct linking, I think I can get many more people to use Basecamp in my office because of it. Great job."
Elizabeth Saloka: "This is outstanding! Seems like such a little thing, but what an impact. Great job."
Great to hear guys! Glad you're enjoying.
