Create Todo

Basecamp 2 is a web-based project management and collaboration tool. This action allows you to create a new todo item for a particular todo list. To achieve this, add this action to your canvas, and configure it. Select the appropriate access token for Basecamp 2. If you haven’t created an access token, select ‘Add new’ to create one. 

In the ‘Username’ field, enter your Basecamp 2 username. Provide the ID of your account in the ‘Account ID’ field. You can find this ID in your Basecamp 2 URL. Then, specify the ids of the project and todo list this item belongs to. Provide the label of the todo item in the ‘Todo Content’ field. Under ‘Assignee’, enter the ID of the person responsible for the task. Mention ‘Type’ as person if you are assigning it to a person. Once you have entered these details, click on ‘Next’, test the workflow, and click on 'Done' to return to the canvas. Then click on the 'Run' icon present on the top right-hand side corner of the canvas to run the workflow. This will create a new item in the specified todo list.
