Adding a Proof to a Basecamp Classic Project

After you set up your Basecamp Classic integration you can start adding proofs to projects within your Basecamp Classic account.

After adding a proof to a Basecamp Classic project, your reviewers will receive an email notification which will contain a link to view the proof in Workfront Proof and a link to open the message in their Basecamp Classic account.

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

For more information, see "Reviewing a Proof in Basecamp Classic."
