The New Basecamp: Y’all Fix This Now

Dear Basecamp,

The new Basecamp is great, and I know you are working on the upgrading process. A couple things that would be nice are

(1) An option to de-privatize all “Private” items in a projects, in lieu of a method of being able to import them.

(2) An option to notify All Users of a project when it is imported.

I find myself manually doing these two steps on each project that I do import, because not having Private items in the new version is not a deal-killer for most projects (the loop-in feature neatly replaces most of the need for this, although they are do not fit exactly the same scenarios), and everybody does have to be notified when the project moves 🙂 although I appreciate that it is not automatic.

Thank you!

It would also be very nice to have a one-click import for all eligible projects. It takes a while to go in and click on each one, and wait, and click, and so on.

Everything’s migrated except one project… Where I’ve gone through and looked and looked for that last tricky Private item and haven’t found it yet. Aaargh…

Google Analytics: Fix the UI so it remembers the number of rows.

Some of us have 50 accounts in there, and it’s annoying and SO SLOW to keep hitting next, OR having to reset the row selection each time.


Apple: Fix the WWAN status in the menu bar option

…in OS X 10.6, Preferences, Network…

The checkbox never stays checked. And the WWAN status never shows up in the menu bar.

This is for various Verizon/VZW devices, at least the USB720 and the MiFi 2200 Novatel.
