How do I use Zoom for video chats in my Donut meetings as an individual Donut participant?

Donut’s Zoom integration allows you to start a Zoom meeting directly from within Slack, plus it will automatically include Zoom info in any Donut calendar events (with Google Calendar). Here’s how to sync your Zoom account and start using the integration for your virtual Donut meetings:

Please note: each individual user will need to authorize Zoom for their account in order to use it.

Once your team has the Zoom integration turned on, Donut will include a note in your intro message with a button to get started.
