Integrate Basecamp with Online Forms

Formsite’s integration with Zapier gives form owners ways to send form data to thousands of other services. Our integrations search area allows for searching by service name or type, then quickly enabling the integration. An example is Basecamp, awesome online project management software for keeping teams on the same page.

Formsite Basecamp integration

Basecamp lets teams view schedules, to-do lists, chats, contribute files, and so much more. See statuses and daily schedules, configure notifications, and set up recurring reminders. With Formsite, the productivity opportunities have never been greater.

Design the Basecamp Strategy

Connecting Formsite forms to Basecamp through Zapier is simple, so here are some tips for getting there:

Formsite Basecamp Zap settings
  • If you are a current user of Basecamp and you want to automate actions based on form results, some things you can do include:
    • Find or create projects
    • Create to-do
    • Upload file
    • Add person to a project
    • Find people
    • Create schedule entry
  • If you have a Formsite form and you want to add Basecamp, consider making a form to add team members to your projects. The custom integration makes it easy to create a Zap to automatically find and add people.
