PlaneIt - One link to everywhere!

Overview

Have you ever felt that there should be a solution to the never-ending task of bookmarking at the start of every semester or finding each lecture link via email/whatsapp for the first 5 minutes of a lecture during online classes?

Well PlaneIt is that very solution.

So what does PlaneIt exactly do?

PlaneIt is a schedule automator. It basically stores all the links of your lecture classes, regular online meets or literally any link of your choice which you want to open at a specific point of time. Then it stores all these details on MongoDB's Serverless Atlas Database and provides you a simple link which you can use to fly your way to all the scheduled events!

Sounds interesting... What all do I need to signup?

Hmmm... nothing! All you need is a Google Account, no username-password creation. Just sign-in and set your schedule in the colorful-and-friendly UI inspired by Google.

Enough talking, give me the link

Ah, here you go: PlaneIt
[This might take a moment to load because of heroku, pardon me for that!]

Side Note - Other Use Cases

If you are a schedule freak like me who lists down every single to-do before going work, this can also motivate you to make that colorful schedule of yours! Go automate your schedule now!!

Also, just in case if you are worrying, PlaneIt is responsive enough to work on mobile devices and iPads too ;)
