Query Basecamp2 using Slack commands

You can query your Basecamp2 account from Slack using the '/yoke' command.

Connecting Yoke to Slack

Configure a “Slash Command” listed under “DIY Integrations & Customizations” in the Slack Integrations page with these fields:

Once the integration is configured, you can click the “Slack integration” link in the profile drop-down (top-right of the screen) to obtain the /yoke login [user] [token] command which links your Yoke and Slack accounts.

That's it! You have connected Slack to your Yoke board, and can query Basecamp2 and 48 other applications from the comfort of your Slack chatroom. Read more about the Slack-Yoke integration.

Querying Basecamp2

If you are a new Yoke user, you must first create cards that connect to Basecamp. Yoke supports cards that query to-dos, events, topics and updates in Basecamp.

/yoke list shows all the cards on your Yoke board. Here's a sample response:

slackbot10:40 AMOnly you can see this message
Here's a list of your cards:
to-dos in project Foo
events in the next week
updates made by others in project Foo
• ... and card titles from other connected apps

/yoke list to-dos lists the items in the first card.

You can click the links to jump to the to-dos in Basecamp.
