Well this a cool feature, you can just say
/zoom meeting standup and it will automatically create a Zoom call from within Slack. There are a few tricks though:
- Connect to Slack with your main administrator account so that you are not using a personal one if you are in a corporation. Then you have to loosen up the settings so you don’t always have to logged into that account to make a meeting happen.
- You have to set these at the website not in the Zoom applications. Go to settings
- You have to make sure to set, the follow, “Allow Join Before Host”
- Then all the way down, make sure to unset “Waiting Room”
This opens things up enough. There is still a password required which you have to manually enter, but it is pretty good. Basically two clicks for users.
