Google Meet integration guide
You will need a permanent Meet link for this integration.
Google Meet doesn’t promote permanent Meet links, but there is a workaround:
Open Google Calendar and create a recurring event, with no end date. Click the “Add Google Meet videoconferencing” button to generate a link. Put it in its own sub-calendar so you can hide it if you like.
The link will only persist as long as the events continue in your calendar. Copy the link.
In Olark, go to Dashboard > Settings > Shortcuts. (Note: Shortcuts is a paid feature.)
Input ‘meet’ into a new Shortcut.
Paste your Meet link into Olark Shortcuts.
We also recommend including a greeting like:
Hop on a quick Google Meet call with me: meet.google.com/aaa-bbbb-ccc
Whenever you want to call up this invitation, just type ;meet into your chat.
Then hit return.
Then hit return again. Boom, invite sent!
They’ll see a seamless greeting and link.
Then start Google Meet using your recurring link and have a great video call with your chat visitor!
