Rooms are like persistent calls with names. They can be useful for recurring events (standups, social time, etc.) or specific teams (engineering touchbase, design reviews, leadership, etc.).
Rooms live in their own tab:
Rooms are owned collectively by the whole team, meaning:
- Everyone in your team can see all rooms and who is in them
- Everyone in your team can create, rename, or delete rooms
Joining a room
To enter a room, simply click on it. You can only be in a single room (or call) at once: if you enter a room while you're already in another call, you'll get prompted for a confirmation that you want to leave it.
Like any other call, rooms have a capacity of 10 participants.
Viewing and updating room info
To copy a room's link, rename, or delete it, simply click the dropdown menu icon in its top-right corner. If you're curious, this is also where you can see who created a room, or last edited its name.
Creating a room
To create a new room, click on the + icon in the top-right corner of the app. You'll be prompted to pick a name for the room, and that's it! Note that duplicate names are not allowed: you can't create a room (or rename an existing one) with a name that's already in use.
Rooms are ordered alphabetically. If you want to enforce a custom ordering, you can use leading numbers or letters, like for instance "1. Engineering", "2. Support", and "3. Marketing".
We currently support up to 20 rooms per team.
We're still exploring ways to make Rooms more valuable. If you have any feedback that would make this feature more useful to your team, let us know!
