Context: Trying to create one-touch Join Zoom Meeting icons for iPads that will be provided to isolated tech-challenged seniors to help them make it through the current COVID crisis.
Using Apple Configurator 2 I can create custom “Web Clip” icons that launch a particular Zoom meeting via the Safari browser. But the user then has to allow Safari to open Zoom, and then has to select Computer Audio. I would far prefer that the icons be truly one touch.
Webclip icons can launch many other apps and pass parameters using a URI (like a URL). I am hoping that I can pass in the meeting ID and password similarly to Zoom. And ideally I would also like to force computer audio so that the user does not have to choose that each time.
Has anybody done that?
I am a retired developer of embedded software. My available development platform is Xcode in Mac OS Catalina. I can write something using the Zoom SDK if I have to. But my learning curve would really slow things down, and I want to get these iPads set up and in the hands of users as soon as I can. The webclip route should be much more efficient IF it is possible to launch Zoom with a URI.
