Better planning = better work

Basecamp is great for projects where a simple to-do list is enough. But if you plan project schedules, juggle resources, and need better control on when things get done, you need Toggl Plan.

Complete control over your tasks

Unlike Basecamp’s to-do lists, Toggl Plan comes with a complete task management solution. Create custom workflows, assign tasks to multiple team members, and manage tasks from both timelines and Kanban boards.

Customize workflows

With Toggl Plan, task status can be customized for every project. You can update the task status on the timeline or simply drag-and-drop a task on the board view.

Multi-assign tasks

Assign tasks to multiple team members. Responsible team members can then discuss and  collaborate on the task using comments and file attachments.

Bring clarity

Give your team clear visual cues of what needs to start when, end when, and who’s responsible. Add detailed instructions so your team knows what needs to be done.

Your work, your way

Unlike Basecamp, Toggl Plan adapts to your team's way of work. Whether you need to plan a project timeline or execute iterative projects, Toggl Plan suits your needs. This means your team can hit the ground running, without learning new ways to work.

“We have projects that crossover. If I have a question...I can’t just message Australia, they’re
asleep. But I can just ping onto their Toggl Plan and see how things are going.”
