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

Very positive experience - any successful business would find significant efficiencies and opportunities by moving to 365.
I love how secure the platform is, the software is easy to navigate. I love the fact that it is accessable worldwide.
We utilize all that the product has to offer on a daily basis and are quite happy with the product. It helps us manage our business better and provides the tools necessary to communicate effectively.

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

This is the sort of thing the hard drive resident application never struggled with. Conditional formatting layered up is the sort of thing that causes problems.
Sometimes i get logged out and have trouble logging back in. This is very rare but can be confusing and upsetting as everything is on there.
I hate, hate, hate, hate the fact that you cannot install each app on its own. It is pointless to force people who only need Excel or Word to install EVERYTHING.

Great for Teams

Reviewed 2 years ago

It saves time and gives each person ownership of setting the meeting time. The notification feature is helpful for the administrator.

Pros

Doodle makes it easy and stress-free to set up a meeting. A lot of time is saved because each person can see which time slots are available and choose accordingly, as the software automatically updates as people select slots.

Cons

There is nothing that I can think of, especially now that it integrates with Microsoft Outlook and Zoom.

Why?

Reviewed 3 years ago

It was fine - easy to use and also easily integrated with 365 and Slack. That said, it wasn't the most useful software in the world - nothing a simple survey or sign up sheet in the break room can't handle.

Pros

Doodle is easy to use, intuitive and has some fun features (paid). It's a freemium app, so you can go ahead and schedule your meetings (or softball games) without paying, but if you fork out a few bucks each month you can access logos and branding, integration with Slack and a few other features. Overall, it's a nice app to have if you need to create a poll to ask employees when they want to meet. It's user-friendly, actually has a pretty attractive interface and you can't beat free.

Cons

While Doodle is easy to use and a good way to get everyone's opinion on when a meeting should be held, my question is, "why?" Maybe I'm old school, but one of the perks of being "the boss" is that you set a meeting time and your employees show up. Simple as that. If you absolutely must ask for your employees' feedback, there are quite a few options out there - SurveyMonkey comes to mind first - that...

The solution for busy schedule owners

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is my first choice to think of if I need to arrange meetings with multiple attendees that I cannot have a sense of how their schedules look like.

Pros

It's easy to start and use, simple functions that cover all needs to arrange a meeting time. No registration is needed for respondents making huge convenience.

Cons

It would work even more perfect if it can be a plunge-in function for email softwares, like Microsoft Outlook.

Great productivity tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been smooth transition from our manual work to this software which had helped us improve our productivity and integration within team. Can be used for day to day purposes

Pros

It it a great and simple software to organize events and sync with the calenders for the organization. You can create polls which can be useful for knowing the general perspective of the people working in organization. The setup is easy and the software can be easily adopted

Cons

For its price, it can offer slightly enhanced services like integration with Zoom, Microsoft Teams which I believe should be forthcoming in future updates

Easy way to pick a time for multiple attendees

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very happy with the functionality and ease of use of the application.

Pros

If you've ever had trouble getting a group of people to decide on a time to schedule a meeting, Doodle is for you. Easily create a poll, send it out and get responses on what will work. You can also connect Doodle to another calendar, such as Office 365, so that you can see what dates and times might already conflict.

Cons

The free version gets surrounded by ads, but I guess that's the price to pay for using the free version.

Simplified scheduling for free!

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Doodle enables meeting organizers to create a customized poll within minutes and also makes is easy for the meeting attendees to share their availability, at no cost! It really takes the burden of scheduling meetings off the employees and allows them to focus on getting actual work done!

Cons

One feature I am not so fond of is the disabling of participants' original responses when needing to edit the date/time options in the poll. It would be great if Doodle could integrate with Microsoft Outlook calendars.

I Think Doodle is too young

Reviewed 4 years ago

I think doodle is too young, I may use the free version, but I will not pay for it until the time that developers perform more tests and provide more facilities.

Pros

1- Easy sign up by Google, Facebook and Microsoft or simply by an email address 2- Very good Wizard for starting up with software. The software developer is with the user to help her for doing any job in the software.

Cons

The software has some clear bugs. I think they have not tested it perfectly. For example, when I wanted to save my profile, I faced with a general error comment and after it redirecting to a just blank page with no help with this phrase! “Cannot POST /settings/account”.

Clean, easy, and fast

Reviewed 3 years ago

The purpose of Doodle is to reduce email clutter and confusion. The product in its current form achieves all of that and more. Creating a poll to coordinate a meeting, gather opinions, or create a survey has never been quicker or easier.

Pros

Doodle has come a long way since it debuted in 2007. The platform is now minimal, uncluttered, and directed toward optimizing the user's experience. Perhaps the best part about the software is the auto-complete feature for meeting location. Another helpful feature is the cross-platform integration capability with Google and Microsoft.

Cons

There is little that Doodle has left that needs to be improved for the casual user. When it comes to larger applications involving intermittent meetings involving many invitees, some additional features such as a reminder would be helpful.

Using Doodle for large groups

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I have used doodle for years and have even trained staff on how to use it. Gone are the old fashion ways of getting everyone's availability in several email threads with the tireless back and forth antics. Although, we have the ability to use Microsoft Outlook to view everyone's schedule. It is super helpful to select a few dates, set-up in doodle, and just send the few date options out to a large group via the doodle link.

Cons

I do not have any dislikes. It is easy and simple to use. It is a must to use if you are coordinating group meetings or events and need to solidify a date.

Best way to schedule meetings when using multiple calendars

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

My organization's users use multiple calendar tools such as Microsoft/Google/personal accounts (and some just don't know how to use their Outlook calendars), so we can't rely on calendar-specific tools like Outlook Scheduler to determine when people are actually available for meetings. Doodle's free meeting scheduling tool lets us quickly find a time that works for everyone, cutting down on back-and-forth emails. In addition, it's so easy to use that it requires no training at all.

Cons

We primarily use the free meeting scheduling tool, so there may be additional features we aren't using and aren't aware of. It might be helpful to have auto-generated suggested meeting dates and times (for example, today at 1 pm / tomorrow at 1 pm) instead of having to enter the possible meeting dates and times manually.

Outil utile pour la planification et l’organisation d’événements

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Elle permet aux utilisateurs de créer des sondages pour trouver une date et un lieu convenables pour un événement. Les participants peuvent choisir leurs préférences de dates et de lieux, ce qui facilite la prise de décision pour l’organisateur de l’événement.

Cons

un des inconvénients de l’application Doodle est qu’elle ne prend pas en compte les fuseaux horaires des participants. Si vous organisez un événement avec des personnes situées dans différents fuseaux horaires, il peut être difficile de trouver un créneau qui convienne à tout le monde. De plus, l’application ne permet pas de synchroniser les événements avec des calendriers tiers, ce qui peut être gênant pour ceux qui utilisent des outils de planification tels que Google Calendar ou Microsoft Outlook.
