Basecamp 3Create To-do

It's common for action items to be posted in chat, but it's all too easy to forgot to move those items to your to-do list. You can use this Zapier automation as a helping hand. After you set it up, new messages in a Slack channel will be added to Basecamp 3 as to-dos on a list. No more scrolling through Slack to remember what's on your punch list!

How this Slack-Basecamp 3 integration works

  1. A message is sent to a Slack channel
  2. Zapier adds that message as a to-do on a Basecamp 3 list
