Blog / Itsycal Zoom Button Beta

UPDATE: The beta is done and the Zoom button is now live in Itsycal. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

I’m looking for testers for a new feature, a virtual meeting indicator and button. It works as follows:

Itsycal scans the text of event locations and notes for links to virtual meetings. If it finds a link, it will show a small icon in the agenda next to the time providing a visual clue that this event is for a virtual meeting. About 15 minutes prior to the event’s start time, the icon will turn blue and become clickable providing a convenient link to the meeting.

Currently, Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams are supported. The link detection is very basic right now and might miss meeting links. I’m particularly interested in the formats for the various meeting links so I can improve detection.

Please email me with feedback and bug reports. Please do not reply on Twitter since I use email to keep track of issues.
