    If you're having trouble keeping teams on both Basecamp 2 and Trello in sync, this Zap should come in handy.

    Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import already starred Slack message, only new starred messages once its been activated.

    Tired of using your inbox like a task list? We can filter out the information you need with a simple click on your part. If you set up this automation, it will react every time you star a new message on Gmail, automatically adding a new todo for it on Basecamp 2.

    This will catch emails starred by hand or with Gmail filters, giving you an easy way to track and take action on all of them.

Every time new Trello cards are created have the information copy directly into Basecamp 2 as todo items.
