On August 17, we will be switching over to Basecamp 3. At this time all Basecamp 2 projects will be converted to version 3. Prior to the switch over, staff should delete or archive projects that are complete or empty by August 14th. After that date projects that are still empty or completed will be either deleted or archived.
We are asking that all projects follow a specific naming scheme. This will help keep projects that you are assigned grouped together, making them easier to scan and keep track of.
All projects should follow this naming convention:
Department Abbreviation (space) Year (space) Title
(e.g., CM 16 Display Signs, DS 16 WiFi Project)
- Remember no underscore or dash – use a space instead
- When done with the project, the project leader needs to archive or delete the project.
- If it’s an ongoing project, like Facebook Team or Branding, it doesn’t need a year.
- When you make a project with a deadline or a program date, include that info in the project’s subtitle and its event calendar.
