Donut's Outlook Calendar integration makes scheduling a meeting with your teammates quickly and easily. Once you've linked your Outlook Calendar, Donut will automatically display available meeting times whenever you're part of a Donut intro.
*Please keep in mind that only Microsoft Office 365 accounts can be integrated with Donut; Microsoft Exchange is not supported.
You'll be able to browse and book a time to meet with your teammates and create an Outlook Calendar invite directly from Slack.
Authorizing the Outlook Calendar integration
After logging onto your dashboard, please click your user icon on the top right of the screen. Then click on "Your Integrations."
You'll be brought to the next page where you can authorize Microsoft Outlook:
You will be prompted to enter your Microsoft Outlook credentials and give Donut permission to access your app information:
Turning on Outlook Calendar for your Intro Channel
First, you'll need to toggle on the Outlook integration under the "Scheduling & Meeting" tab for your Intro channel at app.donut.ai.
Log in at app.donut.ai with your Slack credentials
Click the gear icon under the Intro channel to access the settings
Click the "Scheduling & Meeting" tab at the top
Scroll down to the "Calendar Scheduling" section
Select "Groups choose meeting time" and toggle on Microsoft Outlook
Once you've done this, the next time your teammates are introduced, they'll get an option to link their Outlook calendar from within Slack:
Changing the Default Meeting Length for Your Channel
Want your teammates to have a quick 15-minute chat over coffee? Or need a 90-minute brainstorm session? You can customize the length of your calendar meetings from the dashboard.
Click the channel you wish to edit in the dashboard
Navigate to the "Scheduling & Meeting" tab at the top
Scroll down to the "Calendar Scheduling" section and look for the drop-down that says "Calendar meeting length."
Select the default time you'd like to use and save when finished!
