Integrating Workfront Proof with Basecamp

If you use Basecamp for project management you can offer your project team richer review and approval tools using Workfront Proof.

Understanding the Basecamp Integration with Workfront

Integrating with Basecamp allows users to view, review, and approve proofs all within Basecamp. Users can submit proofs to your Workfront Proof account and connect them with your Basecamp project. Your reviewers can comment and make decisions via Basecamp, using the mini proof embedded in your Basecamp message.

When integrated with Workfront Proof, Basecamp has the following proofing functionality:

  • Users can review and approve proofs within Basecamp Classic.
  • Users have review tools readily available.
  • Project review teams receive a message in Basecamp with a mini proof for review and approval.
  • Users can switch to a full-page proof for review and approval.
  • Users can add comments and markups to both mini- and full-sized proofs.
    NOTE Once a comment has been replied to, it cannot be edited or deleted.
  • Reviewers can respond to the comments and markups made by other reviewers.
  • Users are alerted when a new version of proof is available.
  • Users who are not Workfront Proof users can work on a proof in Basecamp.

The integration of Workfront Proof with Basecamp must be set up on two levels:

You can integrate Workfront with either Basecamp or Basecamp Classic. Each version of Basecamp uses a different API and, therefore, requires different configuration procedures.

For information on configuring Basecamp, see "Integrating Workfront Proof with Basecamp" in this article.

For information on configuring Basecamp Classic, see "Integrating Workfront Proof with Basecamp Classic."
