SlackSend Channel Message

Not everyone will have time to check Basecamp today, but that won't hurt your productivity if you set up this Zap for automated alerts when new work pops up. It will trigger when a new todo is added to a list in a Basecamp 2 project, automatically posting a message to any Slack channel you want so everyone knows what needs to be done.

How this Basecamp 2-Slack integration works

  1. A new todo item is added to a Basecamp 2 project list
  2. Zapier automation posts a message to a Slack channel
