Doodle for Team Events

Used monthly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-07-14
Review Source: Capterra

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.

Need to find a meeting time, just Doodle

Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Doodle allows us to find the best meeting times (for informal events). Simply select times that are available to meet and set it out to others to fill out their availability. Scheduling has never been easier.

Cons
A tad bit dumbed down and the UI is not the most attractive. Not a huge con but it could use some work.

Review Source: Capterra

As a medical student, Doodle is a great way to schedule meetings with colleagues and fellow students. Once I set up the survey, I can easily disseminate it to everyone via email or group text. Overall, I'm highly satisified with this tool!

Pros
Doodle is an online meeting scheduling tool that is fairly easy to use. The free version has all the necessary functionalities, including setting up polls, scheduling meetings, sharing with colleagues with a simple link, and getting email alerts about responses. Overall, the interface is simple to use and highly accessible. This is a great tool for academic institutions and small businesses.

Cons
I would love if the free option had more options to customize the background, fonts, etc. The mobile version is also a bit clunky to use as compared to the desktop version. Finally, it would be great if Doodle added first and second choice options for participants; this would make it easier to schedule meeting times in case of a lack of overlap.

Makes scheduling easy!

Used monthly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

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.

No more herding cats!

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I've tried a few different ones and Doodle is still the easiest to use.

Pros
Well actually herding cats is easier that scheduling meetings. For cats all you need is a piece of string. People however are another story...Doodle allows you to select times that will work for you and then everyone else gets to vote on what times will work for them - may the best time win! It syncs with my Goolge calendar so I don't have to keep flicking back and forth between windows to see what times to add to the Doodle poll.

Cons
I've changed emails and yet Doodle still won't let me change the email for my account. It keeps reverting to the old email.
