Adding a proof to your Basecamp Classic project
Introduction to adding proofs to your Basecamp Classic project
After you set up your Basecamp Classic integration you can start adding proofs to projects within your Basecamp Classic account.

The reviewers on the proof will then receive a message in their Basecamp account with the ProofHQ miniproof embedded.

Once they open the message they will be able to comment and make decisions on the proof from within their Basecamp account.

Please see Basecamp Classic - reviewing a proof.
