Get Basecamp Email Forwards in Slack and Hangouts

Field Trip now supports Email Forward notifications in Slack and Google Hangouts Chat

You’ve just received an important email, now what? If you happen to be part of a Basecamp team, you can forward emails into a Basecamp project to share and discuss privately.

We know that Slack and Google Hangouts Chat can be powerful notification centres for your team. They can bring activity to where your team works and help everyone stay in-the-know. Even that teammate who never checks Basecamp.

We’re happy to announce that Field Trip now notifies your Slack and Google Hangouts Chat teams about email forwards in Basecamp! This brings more people into your discussions, sharing knowledge, and taking advantage of your team’s diversity. 📬👩‍💻💬🧑‍💻💬👨‍💻💬💡

They’ve even written about how to use Basecamp email forwards to simplify customer support with a shared inbox.
