Doodle for Team Events

Reviewed on 14/07/2020

This is a good program for a team project to delegate and see what everyone will bring to the table.

This is a good program for a team project to delegate and see what everyone will bring to the table.

Pros

I liked how I could create a Doodle Event and have everyone share things that they would be adding. This was an easy way to share with a team to make sure no one was doing the same exact thing.

Cons

This product seems to continually improve and so I cannot think of anything I don't like about this software.

How else do you schedule your meetings?

Reviewed on 13/12/2021

I use Doodle to schedule meetings with large groups when I do not have access to others' calendars. It is an incredibly simple tool for both the administrator and the user. It allows you to suggest available times and for others to indicate their availability within those selected times. It saves so much time and back-and-forth.

Pros

We have shared calendars within our immediate teams but when we are scheduling across teams or with external vendors, Doodle is the fastest and easiest way to find a consensus time. I go to Doodle before any other system because of the ease of use and everyone's familiarity with the product.

Cons

The system is near perfect. It serves its function about as well as it can and I don't think it needs to be overly complicated. If it were possible to add meeting information (i.e. zoom links, agendas, etc) and when consensus was met, to send the calendar invitation, that would be nice.

Alternatives Considered

Google Calendar

Reasons for Switching to Doodle

We use Google Calendar for our calendars but it does not have a feature that will help identify shared availability the way that Doodle does. Doodle also works when you are working across calendar platforms.

I've had a wonderful experience with Doodle so far, and hopefully this will continue! Doodle has made scheduling so much easier for me and my organization, I also use it outside of my work and in my personal life. It has also saved me so much time in having to talk to people and organize stuff which takes forever!

Pros

I looveee using Doodle when I'm organizing an event (be it a meeting, a work event, or even an after work hangout!). It is just so convenient to send the link to everybody with some suggested times and they fill it out, then we find the one where all or most people can attend, rather than going around and asking for people's availability which takes so much time and effort and is so inefficient. It also helps convert the times if the link is sent to someone in a different timezone which is amazing. Doodle is just so simple to use and efficient that gives me an incentive to take the lead in scheduling events!

Cons

I think the user page is quite basic, and could look a little better in terms of design, artwork and colors. Sometimes, I also find it quite difficult to look for an event after I've put in my availability, imagine how messy it will be with many Doodles going on at the same time. I just wish there was an easier way to store all the events in a more organized way that is easy for me to find them.

I had seen this application with one of its partners and I said to myself "why not try it", immediately say immediately do. I tried the free version and it was a real surprise but a little disappointed because ads but otherwise it's really good.

Pros

Advantages:

The software is free, ergonomic and functional
Registration is not compulsory
One can easily choose a meeting date that suits all participants.
Possibility to see the answers of other participants
Possibility to carry out polls and the poll can be exported in Excel or saved in PDF.
Does not require online registration
There is no limit to the number of participants to invite.

Cons

Its disadvantages:

Creating the form is tedious and not easy for a beginner.
Cannot attach a file.
And there is too much advertising.

Doodle: A Go to For Surveying Professionals on Availability

Reviewed on 06/01/2022

Pros

We use this software frequently to gather information from internal staff as well as external clients. This makes it incredibly simple to gleen information as it's available to anyone, in any time zone and organization. In other words, I can create a Doodle Poll and send it to folks within our organization as well as others outside of it in order to schedule meeting times that work for all.

Cons

Duplicating/Copying one meeting to another is not user friendly. I've found it easier to create a whole other poll then to try to add/subtract information from a previous identical poll.
