Using Basecamp to Organize your life
Basecamp is a team communication and project management software. A few months ago , they launched a personal version of the software with a few limitations, but still powerful with the core features being offered for free.
Here is what the free version includes
- To-do lists ( replaces every other ToDo apps - was big fan for Microsoft ToDo before this)
- Docs & Files ( replaces google docs, but for spreadsheets, still need Google docs)
- Schedules ( replaces your calendar)
- Automatic check-ins
- This is the best feature, that sends out a notification scheduled time asking what happened that day/week.
Above all is a project( free version offers 3 projects)
How I use:
Created 1 Project for my self.
ToDo : Lets you create multiple lists, that I way I can have a list for each for my personal projects I track
Docs : All Google docs gets linked here, so that i can track them easily here.
Auto Check-ins : This is to track the daily happening, which can replace any journaling software. Mobile app sends out a notification at scheduled time and use that as a trigger to jot down your daily journal.
Knowing that they are not a fly by night operator, I trust Basecamp than any other free tool there in the market for this purpose. Of course, I can export data out when I no longer want to have my data there.
What I wish It could also have offered:
A personal CRM for your contacts and sync data from Phone book.
