Basecamp 2Create Todo

Ever wish you could turn Slack into the command center for more than just your conversations? This automation can do that for you once it's all set up. It'll trigger with each new message posted to a channel on Slack, automatically adding a new Basecamp 2 todo item to a project list for each one, turning your words into action.

Note: For further customization, try adding a Filter step to limit this Zap so it only triggers when certain words are mentioned in your messages.

How this Slack-Basecamp 2 integration works

  1. A new message is posted to a channel on Slack
  2. Zapier automation creates a new todo item on a project list in Basecamp 2
