Uploading Files
in Basecamp
From the files area of your project, click the "Upload files" button. The size limit for a single upload is 10GB.
Drag and drop a file from your computer into the browser. Or use the "Select files" link. However, dragging and dropping is not supported in internet explorer.
Once you've chosen your files, click the green "Upload" button. If you accidentally upload an incorrect file all you have to do is delete it.
You can also attach files to comments and messages.
The "Edit" link on a stand-alone file will let you update the privacy setting to hide the file from the client on the project. It won't let you edit the file contents, though.
Also to upload a file; you can simply click on a task in the 'to-do-list', then in the 'discuss this to-do' click in the box that says - 'Add a comment or upload a file ...' this opens a dialog box with easy to use instructions for uploading a file.

Attaching Google Doc Files
First off to access a google doc file from basecamp, you must have permission to view it. Permissions are set in your google account.

Set up:
In the file upload menu, click "Google Docs".
You'll see a menu that lets you connect to a Google account.
Sign into your account, and authorize Basecamp's access. You'll need to authorize access if you use a new browser, or a different computer, if you switch Google accounts, or if you sign out of Google.
You can also attach files to comments and messages.
The "Edit" link on a stand-alone file will let you update the privacy setting to hide the file from the client on the project. It won't let you edit the file contents, though.

Updating Files
Attaching Google Doc Files to Basecamp Instructions:

Once that's set up, you'll see a menu with all your Google Docs. You'll only be able to attach Documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Forms, and Drawings to a Basecamp project. Other files added to your Google Drive won't be visible.
Google Docs work just like other files. You can add them to discussions, comments, or attach them on their own. They can be part of active projects and templates. Delete a file if you don't need it anymore. Deleting Google Docs from Basecamp doesn't remove the file from your Google Drive account. Google Docs don't count against your Basecamp storage limit.

Basecamp is an easy to use and essential application that allows you to edit and manage text documents with you and your group. Whether you want to collaborate on a blog together, take notes together, work on a project together, or brainstorm ideas together. Basecamp is also available on the go on any mobile or tablet application.

4. There is a history section all the way on the bottom of the page and you can click “By-the-minute history for this document” to view what changed or restore to an earlier version of your text document.
