  2. Find your intro channel and click the gear icon to go to settings

  3. Click "Scheduling & Meeting" settings at the top

  4. Scroll down to the Zoom integration and toggle the feature on/off

  5. Click "save" when finished to save this setting!

1. Click the "Get Started" button to link your Zoom account with Donut.

2. This will open a modal to link your Zoom account. Click the button that says "Link my Zoom account" to go to Zoom.

3. Once you are signed into Zoom, you'll need to authorize Donut to access your Zoom account. Click "Authorize" to continue.

Once you have completed the authorization, you'll be able to start a Zoom meeting from directly within Slack.

If you also use Donut's Google Calendar integration to schedule your meetings, any Google Calendar events you create with Donut will include Zoom meetings.

Once you've set up the Zoom integration, Donut will remind you when it's time to meet so that you can simply click "Start Zoom meeting." 

While you're active in the call, your intro DM in Slack will display who is on the call.
