Most of us know the all-too-familiar feeling of hunting for a Zoom meeting link before it starts, especially when you're running late. For some of us with many Zoom meetings from various sources, they can clutter your calendar and email boxes, making it hard to find the links when you need them immediately. Lineup gives you a peace of mind by helping you manage your work day in one place, and get reminded of upcoming meetings and when you're running late for them.
What it does
Lineup is a menu bar app that helps you stay on top of all your upcoming Zoom meetings, without having to go to your calendar. Join Zoom meetings straight from your menu bar, see what's coming up across all your calendars, and get notifications for events.
