Design Decisions: Calendar Notifications

One of the joys of building the new Basecamp was using the new Basecamp to quickly iterate on a design problem. Because I’m in Colorado and the rest of the team lives elsewhere, we rely on a combination of tools to share files and work through ideas. And while we might have used Campfire in the past, we now use Basecamp messages to quickly work through ideas and keep the conversation focused.

During one design session, I worked with Jason and Ryan on a particularly thorny problem on the calendar: notifying people about a new event.
