Integrate Basecamp Classic

If you track your time with Basecamp Classic, you can import your projects and to-dos into Daycast. And if you use Basecamp's time-tracking feature, you can use Daycast to track your time and send your time automatically to Basecamp. Here's how:

Click the vertical ellipsis at the far right in the Week Panel and select Integrations from the drop-down menu.

2. Select Basecamp Classic

Click in the Basecamp Classic configuration row to expand it. Check Sync To-Dos if you want Daycast to import your Basecamp to-dos along with your projects. Feel free to leave this box unchecked if you only want to pull projects from Basecamp.

3. Enter Your Subdomain

This is the portion of your Basecamp account url just before basecamphq.com. (If you can’t recall, just log in to your Basecamp account and look in the address bar.) Type or copy and paste your subdomain into the subdomain field in Daycast.

Click Add Integration after successful testing. (If you left off part of your API token, Daycast will let you know the test failed. If that happens, just go back and copy your API token from Basecamp again.)

If you chose not to sync your Basecamp to-dos, you'll type your task manually and clock in to track time to your selected Basecamp project.

9. Push Time

If you’re using Basecamp’s time-tracking feature, this integration will push your time to Basecamp each time you close your work session by clicking Finalize Day.
