Basecamp Next – The New Version
The new version of basecamp has a few built-in keyboard shotcuts that correspond to the tabs on the top:
There are five navigational links: projects, calendar, daily progress, everyone, and me. These correspond to 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively. If you hit G+1, you’ll jump to the projects tab. If you hit G+2, you’ll jump to calendar, and so on. Additionally, if you hit G+F, you’ll jump to the search bar at the top-right.
