Create a bi-weekly recurring task in Basecamp

I have a similar issue, except with Basecamp 3.

I’d like to set up a recurring to-do that recurs ever 2 weeks. After finding out the Zapier scheduler doesn’t actually have a bi-weekly setting, I read about a workaround using google calendar (and set the task to recur in google calendar).

However, I’m stuck at the due date field as well. I’d like the due date to be the the date of the event on google calendar, as opposed to the day the zap was run. Is there a simple way to do that?


Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @Diaz ,

Thanks for reaching out- sorry you are running into an issue with the due date here!

Would you mind sharing a screenshot of your configuration so we can see how your Zap is set up? 

Hi, these are the screenshots:

1st one is the google calendar

2nd one is the basecamp due time

Hi @Daiz 

It looks like you’ve already got that set up correctly to use the event start date - how long before the event start have you configured the zap to trigger?
