For fully remote or partially distributed teams, Donut meetings are a great way to stay connected and facilitate relationships.

You can change your intro message from the Classic default messaging, to our pre-built Remote messaging. The Remote intro message helps set expectations for remote teams to help make Donut meetings successful for teams working from home or across the globe.

How To: Toggle on a Remote Intro Message

You can visit your Donut dashboard any time to view or change the pairing settings for your team, including the intro message.  Here's how:

  • Login with your Slack credentials at
  • Click the pairing channel you wish to edit
  • At the top of the settings, click "Advanced"
  • On the Advanced Settings page, scroll down to the bottom
  • Toggle on the "Remote" intro message
  • Hit "save" when you're finished.
  • That's it! Now Donut will send the remote-friendly intro message the next time it pairs people from your channel

You can also customize the message with an upgrade to one of our paid plans. Learn more about what's included in our paid plans here. Want to see some other suggestions for making Donut more remote friendly? Check out our blog post on making the most of Donut when working from home.
