To help save you valuable time, Base offers Digest Preferences. Instead of formatting each new Digest you create, you can now set preferences for how Digests are formatted within each workspace. You can choose to always show event locations, display calendar colors, include the time and date on individual events, and so much more! 

Your Digest Preferences are tied to each individual Workspace, meaning that you can format your Digests for each executive you support. Just as your work may vary between execs, their preferences may vary as well.


Define your exec's email, which is used as a default setting when you send Digests via email. You can add additional email addresses or override the default when sending a Digest. Additionally, define the email address for Workspace Replies and Notification Emails. This is likely your email address.

Event Blocks

You can select which time zone you would like to view your Digest and calendar sidebar in, within each workspace. We know that converting the time zone when your executive is in a different location is tedious and confusing. Base's time zone preference makes things a little easier and can be changed at any time in case of travel or relocation. Choose the timezone in which events should be displayed, as well as options for showing start time and end time on the digest.


Choose how you want event dates to be displayed, as well as how you want Base to handle dates with single events and multiple events.

Event Details

Choose which event details you want displayed by default on a Digest. Do you always want to show location? Pro Tip: Toggle on Insert Event Description if you always want the notes in the calendar event to pull into your digest. You can always add or remove on individuals events. Note: This sets the default settings, which can always be changed on individual events.

Advanced Formatting

When adding events with descriptions, this settings allows those to be hidden in a collapsible section, allowing you to include important details without making the digest appear overwhelming and daunting.
