Set It and Forget It – Real Time Synchronization between Dropbox and Basecamp

Basecamp is a very popular web based project management tool developed by 37signals.

Dropbox  is a service that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders from their computers with others across the Internet.

When you’re managing projects in Basecamp, there’s the common issue of attaching and then downloading files to view and edit documents from different team members, contractors, clients and freelancers.

We think that cloudHQ for Dropbox can greatly simplify asset and document management for Basecamp users.  Just enable cloudHQ real time synchronization of files between Basecamp and Dropbox.  And that’s it: set it and forget it.

All of your Basecamp projects will be stored on Dropbox secure servers and on your computer (PC or Mac). Furthermore, when you add or modify a file on your local hard disk, it will be automatically uploaded into a Basecamp project. No more worrying about whether your local copy is different from one in your Basecamp project. And, last but not least, you can access all your Basecamp projects directly from your mobile phone via Dropbox mobile application.

Real Time and Continuos Synchronization by cloudHQ will keep track of files for changes and copy files with a very short delay after the change has occurred.

Here are step by step instructions on how to setup cloudHQ to synchronize your Basecamp projects with Dropbox.
