If you’ve ever flown Southwest Airlines you know that getting checked in as soon as you can is key to not getting stuck at the end of boarding group C and ending up in a middle seat in the back of the plane. This awesome Powershell script (courtesey of Bill Grauer) allows you to set a scheduled task to automatically check in your flight for you, so you don’t have to mess with calendar reminders or forgetting it entirely.
The script takes 3 parameters: First, Last, and Conf. Schedule it to run 1 minute before your checkin time and it will loop through for a few minutes or until you’re checked in. I also updated the log location to be my Dropbox folder, allowing me to validate that the check-in was successful from my mobile device (or anywhere else with Dropbox access).
