By popular demand, today we’re adding a new feature to the 37signals Suite that lets you quickly create a Basecamp Classic project from a Highrise deal. If you routinely create projects from your deals this feature will make your suite a little sweeter.
Before we launched this feature the process of setting up a project from a deal was cumbersome. After you won a deal in Highrise you had to navigate over to your Basecamp Classic account, click the create project button and then copy and paste the deal details into the project form. If you needed to invite some of your Highrise contacts to the project you had to set them up one at a time after the project was created. Since there was no way to import their contact information from Highrise you had to manually copy and paste all that data into Basecamp Classic.
Now you can skip all that busy work – just click the new “Start a Basecamp Classic project” button after you mark a deal as won in Highrise:
When you click this button you’ll see the new deal-to-project form in Basecamp Classic. All the fields are pre-filled with sensible defaults from your deal and you can add people from Highrise with a single click:
When you’ve finished reviewing the form you can create your project and get to work immediately.
This feature was built on the foundation we laid with 37ID (our single sign-on system) and the 37signals Suite that we launched last year. The Suite includes Basecamp Classic, Backpack, Campfire and Highrise in a single monthly subscription. The deal-to-project integration we’re debuting today is only available in the Suite so if you’re currently using Basecamp Classic and Highrise but you haven’t upgraded to the Suite now is a great time to make the leap.
We hope this new integration between Highrise and Basecamp Classic makes the 37signals Suite even more useful for you. Thanks for being a 37signals customer.
