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. 📬👩‍💻💬🧑‍💻💬👨‍💻💬💡

Email Forwards are enabled by default and can be disabled in the settings:

We’d like to send a big thank you to FarmWave for suggesting email forward support!

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

Bring your Slack team into Basecamp with a 14-day free trial of Field Trip!
