Basecamp 2Create Project from Template

Use Harvest to create projects and push them to Basecamp 2 or project management, team collaboration, and project discussion. Use this Harvest Basecamp 2 integration to generate a new Basecamp 2 project using a previously-created Basecamp 2 template that Zapier can pre-populate teammates, to-dos, and more.

Note: please ensure you have a template already created in Basecamp 2 prior to attempting this Zap.

How It Works

  1. A project is created in Harvest
  2. Zapier generates a new Basecamp 2 project with a template
