Google Docs to Basecamp setup steps

1. Select Google Docs

Click the Google Docs icon to select it as your source of tasks and events.


2. Connect Google Docs

Note: Google Docs setup requires a two-step process to 1) connect your account, and 2) authorize access to specific Docs.  

Grant permission to connect TaskClone to your Google Drive/Docs account.  You will authorize access to specific Docs in a later step.  Be sure you're authorizing the specific Google Docs account you want to use. When you are returned to TaskClone, click "Next" to continue.


3. Select Basecamp as your destination

Click the Basecamp icon if visible or select Basecamp using search field. Click “Next” button to save and continue.


4.  Authorize TaskClone to access your account

Once logged in to your account, you will be prompted to allow TaskClone to add tasks.


5. Select a Basecamp Project and Todo List

Select a Basecamp project and todo list to receive tasks from the two drop-down lists that appear.  


6. Finish 

Click Finish button.  You're now connected, but there is one more step.


7. Authorize Individual Google Documents

Because Google Docs requires granting access to each specific Doc you want us to process, we've built a simple Google Docs Add-on to make that easy from within Google Docs.  Install our Google Docs Add-on just once (see instructions) and then use the add-on whenever you want to grant access to one or more Google Docs (see instructions).
