Your team puts a lot of work into Basecamp. Basecamp's reports are based on the information your team enters. It finds people's messages, comments, assigned and completed to-dos, and lets you know what everyone has been up to.

Overdue To-dos

It happens — sometimes you miss a deadline. Basecamp looks at the due dates on your to-dos, and tells you what's late, and by how long.

Unassigned Work

Use this report to see all the to-dos and cards that are not assigned to any users. This page will show you all the projects you have access to. Click the project titles to show all the unassigned items:

Upcoming Dates

Want to know what's going on tomorrow, or next week, or next month? Basecamp can tell you! 

You'll get a list of your scheduled events and dated to-dos, across all the projects you're a part of. The name of the project will be the last line of the event. You'll also see who's assigned to what, and who is involved in an event.

There's also an option here to subscribe to this Upcoming Dates schedule — a great alternative to subscribing to each and every individual project. Huzzah!

When you subscribe to Upcoming Dates, you'll see dates that go 1 month back, and 3 months forward.

This is different than an individual project schedule, which goes 2 years back, and 5 years forward.

And different from My Schedule, which goes 1 month back, and 18 months forward.

To-dos Added & Completed

This report lists new to-do items that were added to your projects, side by side with the to-dos that were completed. Everything is broken out by project. You'll see who is assigned, and who completed the to-do.

Someone's Assignments

Need to know what someone on your team is working on? Head to this section to scroll through everything that's assigned to them in Projects you share.

Just want to see their to-dos with due dates? Click the  Just the ones with due dates  tab and you'll only see the assignments with due dates.

Someone's Activity

Want to see all the Basecamp activity for a specific person? Just select their name from the menu. You'll see all their Basecamp activity across the Projects you share — all the to-dos they've added and completed, all the comments they've added, every file they've posted. Very handy!
