  2. Paste a Zoom meeting URL in Alfred, press Command + Enter, it will start a new meeting. And put the URL of this new meeting into your clipboard automatically.
  3. A new keyword “zm” is used to start a new meeting.
  4. Append an existing Zoom meeting ID after the keyword “zm”, it will join this meeting. For example: `zm 123-456-789`, `zm 123456789`
  5. Whether or not there is a meeting ID after keyword zm,press Command + Enter will always start a new meeting.

Hi, I really love this script. But it seems somewhat overcomplicated.


Instead of doing all the complex things with apple script etc... why not just use this:



open "zoommtg://zoom.us/join?action=join&confno={query}"



Hey @bertg, I've played around with that but it seems that this URL does not work with meeting ID aliases, only when you have the meeting number :(

This is great.. is there a way to have say  `zm n` open zoom and start a meeting using my default PMI?


This is exactly what brought me here. I was trying to create my own workflow to solve this.

I basically copied my personal zoom URL, and open a tab in chrome and paste the URL. In the Zoom preferences, I have it set to copy the meeting URL to my clipboard. This Zoom setting will apply to any Zoom session, and will definitely save some time.


I would love to see this workflow updated to include something Tony mentioned.
