Getting Things Done with Basecamp2 and Yoke

Yoke integrates with Basecamp2 and 67 other apps to help you get things done

About the integration

Yoke uses OAuth2 and secure REST APIs to connect to Basecamp.

Card Types

You can track the following measures in your Basecamp account:

  • To-dos assigned to you in a project, optionally within a to-do list and/or due date within a certain date
  • To-dos assigned to anyone in a project, optionally within a to-do list and/or due date within a certain date
  • Upcoming events in the next 7, 14 or 30 days, in a specific project or across all of them
  • Topics recently updated by others, in a specific project or across all of them
  • Recent updates made by others, in a specific project or across all of them

Alerting logic

Yoke will alert you on to-dos that are overdue.

Slack integration

You can query your Basecamp cards from Slack using slash commands.

Automatic bookmarks in Chrome

The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension turns the to-dos, topics, events and updates picked up by your Basecamp cards into bookmarks in Chrome.

GTD with Basecamp2

Inbox cards

Yoke supports cards to track topics updated by others, and general updates made by others, in a specific Basecamp project or across all projects in a Basecamp account. These cards belong in an inbox list in your Yoke board.

You can regularly review your inbox cards to stay up to date.

Next action and project cards

Yoke supports cards that track to-dos assigned to you in a project or within a to-do list. These cards can be added to a next action or project list in your Yoke board, depending on the level of complexity of the to-dos.

Waiting for cards

If you manage a project, you can track the open to-dos in a project or within a list. You can routinely follow-up on these to-dos to make sure that the assignees have the right level of support.

Tickler cards

Yoke supports cards to track upcoming events in a project or across projects. These cards can be added to a tickler list.

You can review these lists in a regular basis to make sure that you are prepared for the upcoming milestones, demos and other events.
