Starting the import process generally takes 1 to 5 minutes. After you've confirmed the import, the actual importing time can vary between 1 minute to several minutes. This is entirely based on how much data you have in your Basecamp account as well as the rate limits of Basecamp's API.

How to start an Import from Basecamp

1. Find the Import Projects button under your team dropdown and select the Basecamp feature.

2. Once you log into your Basecamp account, select the projects you wish to import. Every Basecamp project will be its own Nifty project.

You can align members from your Basecamp projects with Nifty team members, or invite new members to your team to match the user data.

3. Lastly, select the project data you wish to import, and begin importing.

Imports can take a while -- thanks for your patience!
