Can I import from basecamp?

We're moving to Confluence from Basecamp, basecamp offers an HTML and XML export option. I see an "DOC" type import for Confluence in the 'Tools' menu.

Are there any other options for importing basecamp info (aside from basecamp export -> manual re-format in MSWord -> Import word doc to Confluence)?

Hi David -

No there is not a direct path - and depending on your content formatting in Basecamp between pages, you might have different results..

On the HTML / XML question - see this.

Anyways, I would do some tests, and find to smoothest path as you have described above.

If you'd like some help with scripting the effort, if you have tons of pages - let us know.

Otherwise, while tedious - manual at least allows you to scrub and sift through/polish your content on the way in (or delete pages you don't want to move).

So consider your options / strategy...
