If you find yourself routinely creating Basecamp projects utilizing the same tasks, to-dos, teammates, or targets, project templates are an incredible time-saver. When used, all the pieces you need are automatically copied to new projects.

Because we're in the business of saving time, our Basecamp integration now features a Trigger to create projects from a template. This ensures you're automating additional steps in your workflow, regardless of whether you're creating Basecamp projects from a Google Sheet, CRM, or task-management app.

Here are four great ways to automatically kickstart Basecamp projects from templates. Don't see your app included in the list below? Build your own!

How to Take Advantage of This Update

  1. Register for a Basecamp account, and a Zapier account, if you haven't already.
  2. Connect your Basecamp account to Zapier.
  3. Check out our premade Basecamp integrations.
  4. Or, build your own!

By utilizing Basecamp templates in conjunction with Zapier, time-strapped project managers will be able to facilitate collaboration and boost productivity without lifting a finger (okay, maybe one).
