Pros

My favorite thing about Doodle is the ease with which you are able to design something. I also like having the ability to find out when everybody is available.
I love the ability to send out a link and get a large group of people scheduled. The simplicity of the software makes it accessible even to our non-tech friendly staff.
I enjoyed it because it allowed me to be creative and I was able to save all of the work in which I did.

Pros

Overall for someone who is always multitasking like me, Google Calendar is a lifesaver and it helps me to manage my routine and time more effectively.
It's very flexible and has an amazing user experience. Google keeps improving it with useful features like common event presets like Meditation, gym, etc.
Over all it is a good product. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good calender.

Cons

The only negative I can think of is that occasionally a recipient's email will block a Doodle poll.
I did encounter trouble when trying to set my availability. When I tried to give my schedule, I found it hard to pull down to occupy the whole time slot.
I hate when it misses an event on my calendar.

Cons

I can not find any disadvantage to using Google Calendar, literally no disadvantage whatsoever.
What is a little bad about the google calendar product, is that the application crashes and does not mark the event as a reminder on the agenda of all participants.
The lack of integration with Microsoft calendar annoys me. I use it because it's free.

Great for scheduling meetings

Reviewed 2 years ago

Doodle helps us focus on the content of the meeting rather than scheduling of it.

Pros

People prefer different calendars such as Google Calendar or Outlook Calendar, and Doodle doesn't make this a problem. Our team members feel comfortable sharing their calendars through Doodle.

Cons

I am not able to change the time zone once I create my Doodle. The added flexibility would be nice.

Perfect tool for scheduling

Reviewed 3 years ago

Perfect on terms of setting a fast schedule check among a group of users. Simplicity and effectiveness makes it a "must" tool, at least for non-professional environments.

Pros

Great and simple tool with major functionalities in the free tier - freemium - easy to set polls, edit, invite - Can connect to calendar on the free tier as well

Cons

- Advertisments on the free tier - not so many features, just basics - integration with google calendar could be more smooth.

Doodle - easy way to find a slot

Reviewed 2 years ago

I used to find slots to play football with 25 friends. Finding a slot became much easier with Doodle.

Pros

I like that the interface of Doodle is simple, so anyone can use it for the first time with almost no doubts. Another positive point is that it is free.

Cons

I think it is a bummer that the connection with Google Calendar for instance is only in the premium version.

A perfect scheduling companion for those without Google Calendar

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've used Doodle many times to schedule meetings with other educators or to create sign-up sheets for fundraisers and events. It takes almost no time to create the events and is easy for new users (even students) to figure out in a few seconds. I have nothing but positive comments to make about this program.

Pros

Doodle is extremely--and I mean extremely--easy to use. Creating an event takes almost no time and is completely intuitive. Additionally, signing up for meetings is even easier. The graphic interface is perfectly usable, too.

Cons

I don't dislike anything about this software. The only con is that Google calendar invites are easier for any company that already utilizes the G-Suite. If a company is not using Gmail and Calendar, Doodle is a great substitute.

Great tool for project / program management, to choose a time to get together, I use it to plan meetings with team members, project collaborators and external suppliers. It would be more useful if more people use it !

The free account gives you the all what you need to plan a meeting, nothing important is missing. This is a website + an app. Very easy to use ! Possibility to connect with another calendar (Outlook, Google calendar, etc.)

Cons

It's difficult to find cons for this useful and very simple software !

Using Doodle polls to arrange remote group meetings

Reviewed 4 years ago

I am the Principal Investigator of a NIH funded study that aims to test the efficacy of digital platforms in providing mental health services to people with serious mental illness. We use Doodle to engage participants in finding a time that works for all of them to deliver remote group therapy through videoconferencing. Participants are extremely responsive in terms of filling out Doodle pools, and they visibly prefer it over calls or emails. Doodle has made scheduling group meetings much easier for us! will continue to use it in our future studies!

Pros

the software is widely known, end-users are familiar with its interface, filling out polls is fast and efficient

Cons

I'd like to see an integration with Google Calendar, in the future, as it would accelerate the translation from a shared plan to a scheduled event

Easy Time Management for Large Groups

A great way for me to organize large scale coordination on dates and times without having to tinker through and figure out how everyone's schedules lineup. Plus google calendar integration is great.

Pros

Doodle has a great app which makes it really accessible to the users of the program. It allows you to cleanly organize and coordinate with large groups to select dates and times for whatever needs you to have. The UI is beautifully done which makes it fun and easy to use.

Cons

It is difficult to keep track of who has signed up when there are a lot of people who are responding to a single thread.

Schedule meetings without losing your mind

Reviewed 2 years ago

I don't stress about scheudling meetings with inside team members and outside clients or vendors anymore. I also use this for coordinating volunteers' schedules at a local non-profit I serve with.

Pros

Doodle makes coordinating calendars EASY. I've worked at a company that uses outlook and that uses Google Calendar. But this only works for scheduling internal meetings. So I began using doodle to schedule meetings with clients, partners, and vendors. This helps me easily and quickly find a time to meet.

Cons

It may or may not integrate with Outlook or Google Calendar. But I haven't made it that far, or at least the platform hasn't suggested that yet.

Difficult to use

It's a great idea, but too difficult to get people to click on the link, fill it out, and view. It's easier with shared calendars.

Pros

I like that this gives people a place to show their availability. The links are easy to send out and get people to access on their own.

Cons

I don't like the look of this software, and it is difficult to use for most people. I would use google calendar instead to view coworkers calendars.

Doodle makes scheduling easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

Doodle makes quick work of scheduling a meeting or gathering time. This saves multiple emails, or google calendar invites and updates. Doodle is clear communication, and everyone can see what works for everyone else.

Pros

I love the ease of use with Doodle. For simple date-and-time scheduling, it is the quickest way to find a consensus. Doodle allows me to see what other respondents choose, and updating the poll is simple if there are changes that need to be made.

Cons

For the free version, I wish there were an option to rank one's choices of available times, rather than simply indicate with a check mark that the time is open.

Absolutely great scheduling tool when setting up client calls. You do not need to go back and forth in emails anymore and figure out the best time to schedule a call. All you have to do is pick time slots that you are available and send it over to the person you are trying to schedule than they pick a time slot that works for them and you are done!

Plan Meetings Effortlessly

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Instead of going back and forth on an email chain, participants in Doodle can select the days/times that work for them for meetings, and you can view the results to pick which works for all (or most) participants!

Cons

Doodle can be exported to Google Calendar, but it's less integrated than say, scheduling a meeting in Outlook. If you have an office that largely uses Gmail, I would certainly recommend Doodle.
