We’ve previously explained how useful it is to take notes before, during, and after meetings — and how to use Hook to do that.
Now with Version 171 of Hook integration, you can link Zoom meetings to anything. Zoom meetings can become a hub for documenting meetings. You can instantly create a new linked note, in the app of your choice, that is linked to the Zoom meeting.
Suppose you’re in a meeting and want to take notes about it, just launch Zoom and do
Hook to New... > and select a template. Some useful templates to choose from include:
- A single document (Craft, OmniOutliner, Pages, .txt, whatever)
- A folder containing templates for meetings
Or in the same meeting, use Hook’s ⌘N to create a default note-taking document.
You can also now of course use Hook’s
Copy Link to copy a link to a zoom meeting. Send it to friends, family, colleagues. Hook it to contacts, and more.
This means that during a meeting you can instantly navigate between Zoom the zoom meeting and items linked to it.
This could be one or more of the following:
- the meeting agenda
- meeting minutes you are taking about the meeting
- minutes from previous meetings
- reference materials (web pages, emails, PDFs, projects in your task manager, Merlin Project plans, OmniPlan documents, etc.)
- anything else that is linkable
For instance, if the meeting involves reviewing a website, then you can link the zoom meeting to the website.
This works in all languages, though the link title has “Meeting” in it.
- Zoom link names are of the form
Zoom Meeting <meeting ID>. The spacing in the meeting ID matches how Zoom formats meeting IDs.
- Zoom URLs have the form
Want the meeting link to be more meaningful? Then simply invoke Hook in the meeting and do Title menu > Rename (or ⌃⇧R , which is the standard macOS keyboard shortcut for renaming items).
Hook automatically bookmarks.
You can search for all your Zoom links by using any of the following incantations in Hook’s ⌘F search:
url:zoom*: will match any link the URL of which contains
zoomfollowed by 0 or more characters.
zoommtg: any link containing
zoommtgin its title or URL followed by 0 or more characters.
url:zoommtg: any link containing
zoommtgin its URL followed by 0 or more characters.
other variants can work.
Please note that Hook’s search is tokenized.
Hook’s automatic software update (if enabled) automatically updates Hook’s integration scripts without you needing to relaunch Hook. Using Hook’s
Check for App Updates and Update Scripts command also updates the scripts, without you needing to relaunch Hook.
