Does Basecamp Classic support file versioning?

You can upload multiple versions of the same file and keep them grouped together inside the “Files” tab.

To upload a new version of an existing file, click on the “Files” tab.


Now click the “Upload a new version” link below the latest version (the one at the top with the big icon).

new version

When you upload a new version the newest version will appear at the top with a large icon and the previous versions will be listed below with small icons.


If you upload a new version with the exact same name (as displayed above in the example) we will append the actual file name with an extra character so you don’t overwrite the original file.

Note: This only works within the “Files” tab. Files attached to messages and comments do not work with the versioning system.
