How does it really work

View the exact time tracked towards your to-dos
When they're finished working on a to-do, they can mark it as complete within the app.
The time they spent working on the to-do gets written back into Basecamp 3 as a comment so you can easily see when the to-dos were worked on and for how long.

Hubstaff and Basecamp OAuth

Sync Basecamp 3 Projects and Users Automatically

OAuth Integration for Automatic Syncing
Hubstaff time tracking integrates with Basecamp 3 via OAuth. Once you allow the integration you can easily link projects and users from your Basecamp 3 account to your Hubstaff account.
Once you assign a to-do to a user that you have linked, that user will then be able to track time directly to that to-do via their Hubstaff app.
