Report2Base is an add-on to Basecamp that can be queried for milestones, tasks, messages exchanged and hours clocked for a given project or a given client.  Additional criteria can be specified such as completion status, date ranges, or responsible persons, to obtain a fine-grained set of results. This is made possible by a wizard-like interface which is highly flexible and capable of accepting complex criteria, for retrieving results. Such user-defined criteria can be saved for subsequent usage, facilitating one-click operations.

The results are presented as reports in a user-friendly tabbed interface, which allows for simultaneous viewing of multiple reports. This enables the same set of data to be analyzed from various perspectives. The reports generated can be downloaded as PDF and CSV files. A saved query can be set up to dispatch the report as a PDF attachment, over email, at periodic intervals. Email addresses for the same can be entered in an auto-suggesting text box, as Report2Base remembers all your contacts.

Report2Base also offers a graphical representation of data in the form of charts, for a more meaningful analysis of timesheets logged.

Using Report2Base is easy, since it logs you in with just your Basecamp account credentials. The rich user interface of Report2Base offers a desktop-like functionality, requiring little / no refreshing of browser.
