Effortlessly send bug reports and gather user feedback from straight into your Basecamp lists. This guide will walk you through the integration process.

Set up a Basecamp Integration

Add a project

To get started, go to the dashboard and create a project.

Complete the project form by entering a :

  • Project name

  • The website where you wish to collect feedback

  • Select your integration (EG: Basecamp)

  • Select the space within your integration where you wish to receive your feedback

If this is your first time connecting, you need to authorize to use your Basecamp account.

Note: Ensure that you have an active to-do list in your Basecamp project, otherwise you will see a prompt similar to the below

Configure forms

We fetch your native Basecamp fields into your widget form. You can show/hide any fields and preset fields. For example, change the To-do list and/or assign the feedback to a specific person, etc.

Note: members report through the Member form, while Guests and Public Reporters report via the Guest form. More on that in our User Roles Guide.

Install widget

The last step is to install the website widget. We have many options for installing our widget and recommend our manual JavaScript install in most cases.

​Alternatively, install the widget via WordPress plugin, NPM package, or send a request to your developer in one click.

Visit your website, refresh and check that the widget appears.

How it works

Collect feedback

Reporters can submit their feedback directly to your Basecamp project without leaving their website. Their feedback will automatically include detail-rich technical data.

Let’s say the Contact Us button is broken on the About Us page. The reporter clicks on the widget and is presented with a screenshot and a feedback form to complete.

The screenshot can be annotated, and the feedback form can be as simple or as complex as you wish. We recommend keeping the feedback form as simple as possible for your non-technical reporters.

Review issues

In your Basecamp project, you see the feedback arrive with the screenshot and automatically captured technical data, including:

  • Page URL

  • Browser

  • Screen size

  • Operating system

As well as links to the:

  • Console logs.

  • Network requests.

  • Session replay video.

Communicate with reporters

The "Contact via" link opens the Feedback Page, where you can communicate with your reporters. All conversations will be synced with Basecamp.

Synchronize Status

Once you mark an issue as Completed in Basecamp, this will update the status to resolved and notify the reporter via email that the issue is complete.
