Reusable Lists in Basecamp

Basecamp doesn't have built-in functionality to create reusable lists, but here is a workaround that I'm using.

Create a new project and call it something like "List Templates".

A project called List Templates in Basecamp

Since this project is only going to be used for having list templates, I will start by disabling all other tools "To-dos". Click on the three dots in the top right, and then on "Change tools".

Turn all tools off, except for "To-dos".

All tools turned off, except for To-dos

Create a new list and add all the items that you want to have in it.

My list template

Now when you need a new copy of this list, you just open it up, click on the three dots in the top right, and then choose "Copy". You can now choose which projects you want to duplicate this list into.
