Put some spice in those long office days! By using the /coffeeroulette
[amount-of-guests] slash command in a channel of your liking, you can set up a Zoom call with
some random colleagues in that channel. What Coffee roulette will do is post two links in the channel:
- The first link is visible to everyone in the channel. It's probably best not click this one if you spun
the roulette yourself. If you do, you're already taking up one spot in the Zoom call. This in order to
make sure that you can join your own call.
- The second link is only visible to you. Click that link, fast!
What's so special about al this? Well, the public link will only allow the first [amount-of-people] (default
1) into the Zoom room with you. You don't know who it will be and they don't know who set up the call!
Get to know your colleagues & friends in ways you never knew them before!
