Syncing Donut with Your Google Calendar
You can use Google Calendar to quickly and easily book Donut meetings with your teammates. First, you’ll need to link your Google Calendar to Donut. There are two ways to link your calendar:
If your team has the Google Calendar integration turned on and no one in your group has ever used it, Donut will include a note at the bottom of your pairing intro message with a button to get started. Click this button to link your calendar.
Once you click this button, Donut will open a modal with instructions for connecting the app with your calendar of choice. Select the calendar you'd like to use.
Once someone has already set up their Google Calendar with Donut, you'll be presented with a list of times that work for them when you are paired. You can browse the times available, and if you click on "Send calendar invite" you'll be prompted to link your own calendar first.
Scheduling Donut Meetings with Google Calendar
Once you've linked your Google Calendar, you'll be able click the "Send calendar invite" button to schedule a calendar event directly from Slack (as long as you have permissions to view your teammates' calendars).
Note: not all participants need to select a time. The Google Calendar event will be created once one person clicks "Send calendar invite" in Slack.
Donut will confirm the meeting time you selected by posting the details in the pairing direct message.
If you need to reschedule for any reason, whoever created the calendar invite can change the details directly from their Google Calendar. Donut will automatically check back in with you once your meeting time is over to ask if you were able to meet.
Customize Your Meeting Length
Want to have a quick 15 minute chat over coffee? Or need a 90 minute brainstorm session? You can customize the length of your meeting from the drop down in your intro message before selecting a time.
