This week Basecamp launches a new, freeware layer of its project management software, called Basecamp Personal. Initially, Basecamp was created for small businesses, offering convenient features such as chat, internal message boards, group files, shared schedules, and more in one place. However, it usually costs $ 99 a month, which can be extremely expensive if you are just looking for something to help you manage tasks in your personal life or with a smaller group of people.
Basecamp says Basecamp Personal was created "specifically for freelancers, students, families and personal projects" and with it you can create spaces for up to three projects, work on those projects with up to 20 users and store up to one gigabyte data in these projects. The new layer appears to put Basecamp in direct competition with free levels from other project management tools like Asana and Trello, as well as workplace chat software like Slack and Microsoft Teams.
I tried to sign up for Basecamp Personal and it was very easy. All I had to do was sign in and then I could start working on projects ̵
