Slack's Whereby Integration
With Slack's Whereby Integration, you can generate a link to your room directly in your Slack workplace with either your Room Name, or picking from a list of rooms using the dropdown option!
Get the Slack integration
- From the Slack App Directory, add the Whereby integration.
Click the Connect account button. This will open up a new tab in your browser window where you can sign in to your Whereby account, or select the account you want to use
- Scroll up to the Apps tab, and click into the Whereby app - here you can see a list of all rooms in your account and a list of the slack commands:
Use the Slack integration
Once you have the integration connected to your account, you have a few options for generating a room link. To get a list of commands, type "/whereby help", and you'll see all the options available to you.
Start a meeting
You can start a meeting with either of the two options below:
You can type "/whereby" to open up a dropdown menu, where you can select a room that's in your account. Click Start meeting to send a join option to everyone in the room!
You can type "/whereby start [room-name]" if you want to start a meeting in a specific room.
Note that if you don't own the room that you're trying to start a meeting in, you'll get an additional notification to let you know about this.
Join a meeting
You can use "/whereby join [room-name] to directly join someone's room, without posting a join link in the Slack channel for others to use. Note that if you're part of a subdomain that you'll only be able to join rooms on that subdomain. Similar to the create option, if you don't own the room you'll get a notification of that fact.
