New feature: Basecamp importer

Postby Philipp » 26.04.2008, 03:32

Im excited to announce that we have implemented a Basecamp import option for our next release.
Our contributor Melih Onvural has provided a class that parses and imports the XML syntax created by the Basecamp exporter.

We have now implemented this class to provide a complete Basecamp importer.
You can read the full story at our blog: http://www.collabtive.o-dyn.de/blog/english/upcoming-feature-basecamp-import/

When I tried it out on my collabtive install, the import worked, but it seems like the passwords for users were hashed differently or in any case didn't work properly. Any info on how this is handled by the importer?

The passwords aren't exported by Basecamp, which is understandable.
Therefore, we set the password to the email address of the user, as exported by Basecamp.
So you may login using the email address of your account at Basecamp.

Alternatively you can edit the user's passwords when logged in as an admin.
We will try and make the import process more verbose about this, to avoid confusion, in future releases.

Thanks for the explanation re passwords. Your approach makes sense to me.
