You can create conference calls on the fly for direct messages, group chats, or channels in Slack by sending the
/skrum command to the conversation via the message text input. A dialog will open to quickly configure a conference, and once settings are saved, Skrum will call each participant on their listed telephone. No external application is required!
A free Skrum account is required to add the Skrum app to Slack. The app will authenticate the first time you run the
/skrum. Help is available via the
/skrum help command.

This command initiates an instant conference. All participants in the conversation are called by Skrum and put into a conference room. The conference will be given a default title of "Skrum Conference" and the conference length will be set to the default conference length specified in the Skrum Account Dashboard. Slack will post a confirmation message when the conference is successfully created.
This allows you to pre-fill the title in the Skrum dialog the
/skrum command generates.
/skrum now "title"
This allows you to set the title for an instant conference.
This command will display some basic help with Skrum in the conversation.
