Question

Has your team replaced Slack with Basecamp's chat?

Thinking it'd be a bit restrictive to only have project-focused chat, but it would be nice to simplify our billing and only have one app for project management and Slack, so wondering if other teams have pulled off replacing Slack with Basecamp.

Very interesting, thanks for sharing that post! Did not realize you can't edit chat messages in Basecamp's Campfire chats. That would get very annoying as I edit Slack messages all the time.

we chose Asana over Monday. Can you assign one task to more than one project? This is a very useful Asana feature.
