Basecamp 3Create To-do

When a message arrives in your inbox from an important client, you want to get that action item out of your email and onto your to-do list as quickly as possible. Use this Zapier automation to turn emails into to-do's in a flash. After you set it up, whenever you add a label (like "urgent" or "due today") to a new email, Zapier will add this email to a to-do list in Basecamp 3. Then, take a minute and revel in the calmness of your inbox.
