Now you can have a different email address for each Basecamp account. Just log into a Basecamp account, click “My Info” and edit the email field.
How to: Merge multiple 37signals IDs together
We launched a feature that lets people merge/link different 37signals IDs together. This is helpful if you’ve created two or more different 37signals IDs by accident. Or maybe you created separate identities on purpose originally but would prefer a single ID instead.

“At our university, we use Blackboard as a Learning Management System, and I can’t say that it’s good at all. In this post, I outline the most important shortcomings of Blackboard, the benefits of Basecamp and Campfire, and why the latter would be a better fit for our classes…The thing is that [37signals] products are not designed for education, they are designed for business. Yet, Basecamp and Campfire would be a much better overall fit than the Blackboard we currently use.”
