You can escalate your Slack instant messaging sessions into live audio and video conferences with data sharing.
StarLeaf’s Slack App delivers seamless integration between Slack instant messaging and the audio and video conferencing experience of StarLeaf.
How the StarLeaf Slack App works
The StarLeaf Slack App is a Slack integration developed and supported by StarLeaf, which allows users to easily escalate instant
messaging sessions to audio and video conferences by simply typing the /starleaf command in Slack.
In any Slack channel or direct message, type the /starleaf command. This causes all participants to receive a message, which contains a link that launches a StarLeaf Breeze call with audio and video.
The message also provides a code to use if users prefer dialing in from a StarLeaf room system and global dial-in numbers
so users can join from their telephones (if required).
Each Slack channel has an associated permanent StarLeaf conference. This ensures that, where there is more than one channel, participants join the correct conference and this operates as a permanent space for collaboration.
How to install the StarLeaf Slack App
The StarLeaf Slack App will soon be available in the Slack App store . In the meantime, just get in touch with our support team and they can send you a link to an “Add to Slack button”.
Simply click on the button and approve the installation on Slack. That’s it! From then on all Slack users in your team are able to use /starleaf to escalate to video calls.
