Synchronize SugarSync storage with Basecamp project: instructions and benefits

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 SugarSync can greatly simplify asset and document management for Basecamp users.  Just enable cloudHQ synchronization between Basecamp and SugarSync.  And that’s it: set it and forget it.

All of your Basecamp projects will be stored on SugarSync secure servers and on your local PC. 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. 

Here are step by step instructions on how to setup CloudHQ to synchronize your Basecamp projects with SugarSync.
