SlackSend Direct Message

If you're only looking to keep an eye on what's happening over on Basecamp, you don't even have to log in: Set up this Zap and we'll message you with all the activity you want. This Zap will trigger whenever there's activity of any kind on Basecamp, sending you a direct message on Slack for each and every event that happens.

Note: You can use a Filter step to limit this automation so it only triggers with specific types of events.

How this Basecamp 2-Slack integration works

  1. New activity happens on Basecamp 2
