Benefits

Log in with Slack (SSO)

Calamari allows you and your teammates to log in to Calamari by using your Slack accounts. There are few rules that you need to understand:

  • One Calamari company account can be connected with one unique Slack team.

  • Each employee is matched by email, that is why you need to have the same email in Slack and Calamari.
