Quick Help

PlannerX shows your Basecamp plan in an outline / list view. You can navigate using arrow keys. You can add / update / delete plan items using keyboard shotcuts or toolbar buttons at top. Top level items in PlannerX outline are milestones, second level items are todo-lists. Tasks are at the last - third level.

Watch our 5 minute video demo to learn all the basics of PlannerX.

Concepts / Icons, Keyboard Shortcuts and Meanings
Outline   A nested, hierarchical list of items in your project.

  A Milestone in your project, Level 1 item. Milestone due date in parenthesis (YYYY-MM-DD). Gray indicates no todo lists for this milestone.

  A todo-list in your project, Level 2 item. Gray indicates no tasks for this list.
  A todo item / task within a todo list, Level 3 item
Assignee   Person or company responsible for this Milestone or Todo item. Use initials, first name / last names / full name. PlannerX will auto complete them when you save. Basecamp does not support assignees for lists.
Editing Double Click Double click any row to edit it. Use arrow keys to navigate between cells. Press Esc to cancel editing.
Navigation Arrow Keys Use Left / Right arrow keys to move between Name and Assignees of an item. Use Up / Down to move between outline items.
Reordering Drag Drop Drag and drop items to reorder them in your plan. You can drag across milestones and tickets.
