Donut's video integrations make it quick and easy for teammates to start or join Donut meetings, directly from Slack. If your team uses Google Meet or Microsoft Teams video, you can select them as your default option for Donut meetings.

With Google Meet / MS Teams video integrations selected, Donut will automatically include either a Google Meet or MS Teams video link in future Donut calendar invites. Read on to learn more about how to set your default video conferencing option.

How do my teammates use Donut's Google Meet or MS Teams integration once it's turned on?

Donut will remind team members when it's time to meet so that they can simply click the link in their calendar invite to start their meeting or start it directly from Slack.

Please note that Donut will create different types of video links depending on the type of account linked with Donut:

  • G-suite G-Cal accounts will create Google Meet links.

  • Personal G-Cal accounts will create Google Hangouts links.

  • MS Teams Outlook accounts will create Teams links.
