Is it possible to add a Slack call to a Google Calendar event?

When I invite a co-worker to meet with me, I often want to meet via a Slack call. It is easy to add a link to the calendar invite for a Zoom call, a Hangouts call, or even a Jitsi call (we use Google Calendar and there are integrations for all three). I am wondering if there is some way to achieve the same convenient “hop on the call in one click” when using Slack.

How to delete an entire Slack conversation between two people

I’m a member of two work Slack channels.

An old Slack channel from a few years is now being re-used. When last in use there were a lot of difficulties between myself and another colleague, and to my embarrasment the conversation history from two years ago is still there. A lot of vitriolic things were said on both sides, and I’d now like to wipe the slate clean with this conversation.

So… any advice on how I can remove, hide or archive a Slack conversation history between myself and this other colleague? I guess this is not possible!

No sound playback during call in Slack – Ubuntu 20.04

I’m on 20.04 and downloaded Slack using snap. I downloaded Spotify via snap as well as my speakers work. Not sure why Slack isn’t working. I tried every single sound source.

Is it possible there is another volume control setting for Slack application that was missed out? It is sometimes hidden deep in the Sound Settings under Applications.

I had a similar experience with Zoom for Linux. I could not hear a sound at all. The main system volume was all the way up. The app was connected to the device’s audio correctly. I reconnected a couple of times. Only to find out later on that there was yet another set of input/output controls for Zoom that was not so obvious. I only had to turn it up to hear sound during a call. By default it always seems to be at 0 when I join a call, which is weird.
