Some minor issues with alerts, reminders & notifications in the distant past but no recent problems.

Great organizer

2019-08-28

I sounded more professional when I started using doodle planner.

Pros

The concept feels very simple and the interface is also impressive.

Cons

I think the doodle API thing needs more step by step guide to make people more familiar about it.

Simplicity does the job

2019-09-30

Also, it provides the organizer with feedback about other people's replies, making it possible to have real-time updates.

Pros

Doodle is easy to use, meaning that any contact of yours will find it intuitive to use it.

Cons

Integration with one's calendar is not as smooth as you may expect, but still it's more than manageable.

Easy Time Management for Large Groups

2019-09-17

Plus google calendar integration is great.

Pros

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.

Best, but still not great

2019-07-27

Used regularly for business and social scheduling, saving multiple messages and emails back and forwards.

Pros

Especially like the integration with my own calendar.

Cons

The design is not easy on the eye, it doesn't seem to fit well on the screen; the whole UX is therefore flawed.

Organise more efficiently with Doodle

2019-09-13

It helps me stay organised and keep track of my tasks.

Pros

You can also link people to those schedules to send out notifications. It is a really great solution to stay organised.

Google Calendar integration could be better but I rarely use that.

Excellent Way

2018-04-18

Pros

Easy way to schedule times for groups of people or for a time with a group in which you do not want overlapping times scheduled.

Cons

Doesn't integrate into your calendar so you need to input the dates - there are platforms that do this for easier scheduling.

Using Doodle polls to arrange remote group meetings

2018-11-22

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!

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

Love Doodle!

2019-09-17

I love that it takes the back and forth out of planning a time

Pros

I love that it takes the back and forth out of planning a time and you don't have to rely on the accuracy of an outlook calendar.

Cons

I actually rarely use this in a professional setting and wish maybe it had an integration with outlook calendars?

Doodle in an Educational Environment

2019-04-22

Pros

Doodle is a good tool for scheduling meetings and finding acceptable common times to meet. It allows each invitee to select from times offered that will best meet their schedule options.

Cons

The product has changed some over time and used to integrate better with our Google Calendar system than it does now.

Only tool I use for scheduling

2019-11-05

I use Doodle mainly to plan activities for the office and to see when everyone would be available.

Pros

This is the best tool to use to plan office activities in my opinion

Cons

I tried using the feature where you can integrate the tool to Slack, but after a few embarassing attemps at adding the Doodle to our channel, it kept failing and I ended up having to just send the link instead.

An almost perfect service to arrange any meeting

2019-04-18

Pros

I especially like the feature of being able to select time options just by dragging the mouse on the calendar.

Cons

The only con I'd say is a direct integration from Google Calendar. There is one the other way around (getting to doodle.com and logging in), but in a company that's using Gsuite an automatic feature that would suggest timeslots when none of the people invited are busy, would be just perfect.

Doodle saves a lot of time in setting up meetings.

2018-06-03

I manage my meetings in a blink of eye without the hassle of teaching my team mates how to deal with it.

Pros

Its user interface is amazing and simple which makes it easy to just send the link to the other employees without teaching them how to use it.

Cons

They should integrate more features as the premium is useless actually but i don't count this as a con.

We use Doodle for collaboration for meetings and events between college university departments.

2018-06-08

I really like that this software allows for sending reminders and requests, sends general messages and links to the Doodle in question, is ad free, and as a college we can create branded feeling custom designs.

Pros

This can be used for multiple activities, meetings, events, and general polling for preferences.

Cons

That even if you're a "member" if you are added to a Doodle by yourself, it doesn't show up on your account. I can only see it if I was invited by an organizer.
