Work Bins Support

Question:

Is it possible to associate multiple basecamp accounts? For instance if we have 2 divisions in our company and I work for both, but we keep them as separate companies, can I associate both to outlook so I can drop what I need to the correct company project?

 

Answer:

Yes, you can merge the ids together that you use to access each account and then use the merged Id to authenticate the Work Bins plugin. This will give the plugin access to all of your accounts and keep you from having to keep up with 2 sets of credentials. The link below describes how to merge a Basecamp Id.

Try disabling Publisher Certificate Revocation in Internet Explorer. I know that your problem is not in Internet Explorer, but Outlook inherits this setting from IE. The setting causes IE to verify the security certificate of the application every time it starts up. Some users have reported that having this setting turned on has caused very slow load times for their Outlook plugins. 

Steps to disable Publisher Certificate Revocation

  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. Click Tools, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under the Security section of the tree view control, unchecked the check box for publisher’s certificate revocation.

Once you have installed the Work Bin plugin for Outlook you can add a column to the Outlook explorer window to allow you to see which Work Bin each email is associated with, without having to open the email.  For some users the column will be added automatically at install, others will need to follow the steps below.

 

Outlook 2010 & 2013 users

While in the Outlook explorer window select the folder where you would like to add the Work Bin column (ex. Inbox, Sent Items, etc..) The folder you select must contain at leas 1 email. Click on the "Work Bins Plugin" tab at the top of the page and click the "Add Work Bin Column" button.
