Basecamp

Basecamp provides an RSS feed that you can import into Flowdock using either Basecamp 3 or Basecamp Classic.

Basecamp 3

Note: Basecamp's RSS feed URL includes a Basecamp username and password. Credentials are visible to all of a flow's users, so we recommend to create a new Basecamp user solely for this purpose.

  1. On a project page, find the RSS link in the bottom-right corner of the page. Right-click the link and select Copy link address.
  2. Next to the desired Flowdock flow, click the gear icon and select Settings.
  3. From the Integrations tab, locate the RSS integration and click + Connect RSS.
  4. On the pop-up, add a Basecamp user's authentication credentials to the link:
    https://ESCAPEDEMAIL:PASSWORD@basecamp.com/123456/projects/12345-your-project.atom
    In the email address of the Basecamp user replace @ with %40. Be sure to discard any extra whitespace.

Basecamp Classic

  1. In a Basecamp project, go to Overview → Project RSS Feed to get the URL.
  2. Go to My Info → Authentication Tokens → Show Your Tokens → Token for feed readers or the Basecamp API.
  3. Next to the desired Flowdock flow, click the gear icon and select Settings.
  4. From the Integrations tab, locate the RSS integration and click + Connect RSS.
  5. Use the token as the username in the URL and construct it like the following:
    https://TOKEN@BASECAMP_SUBDOMAIN.basecamphq.com/projects/BASECAMP_PROJECT_ID/feed/recent_items_rss
    Be sure to discard any extra whitespace.

Basecamp's RSS feed messages will now display in your team inbox.
