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.

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.

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.

Go to software for scheduling meetings between large groups

2018-03-12

Pros

It allows me to send scheduling polls to large groups of colleagues or friends whose schedules aren't all aggregated into one calendar. Additionally, the interface is easy for anyone to understand immediately and it makes scheduling decisions easy.

Cons

Enhanced calendar integration would improve the product.

Easy and simple way to make an appoint with people who have complex schedules

2018-04-23

Pros

I like that it integrates with your calendar on its own so it'll add time blocks to your calendar when needed.

Cons

The instructions on how to use Doodle could be more robust. We had an issue where invited users thought they could only choose ONE time, which is the opposite of what Doodle is supposed to collect.

Simple to Use - Make Scheduling with Multiple People a Breeze

2017-07-18

It's the easiest way to schedule meeting with multiple people - greatly reduces the number of emails back and forth.

Pros

The website has a very simple interface that anyone can navigate, even if they have never seen Doodle before.

Cons

I might be willing to pay for a version that would allow me to brand to my company, similar to ShareFile.

Really great meeting scheduler, surprised it hasn't been duplicated by others

2018-04-11

Pros

It's great to merge with your calendar and see when you actually are available to meet.

Cons

One other comment that isn't a con per se, just a note about use: you'll probably find yourself changing the notification settings to match your personal preference.

Very helpful tool to use for polling for meeting availability

2018-06-18

Quick and easy snap shots on availability for large groups to meet.

Pros

One of the best features is the notifications I receive when someone completes the doodle poll.

Cons

I have not run into any cons using this product thus far. I really enjoy using this tool to help organize meetings.

I used this mainly for setting up meetings outside of my workplace, for volunteer groups and boards.

2017-06-07

Ease of scheduling meetings without a lot of back and forth about everyone's calendar.

Pros

This software is so easy. It works immediately and you can be as detailed or as simplistic as you wish.

Cons

We use this at my current employer to schedule meetings that include internal and external attendees and all you need are email address.

Great idea, decent implementation

2018-06-21

Pros

Having the calendar in one place saves a lot of time.

Cons

It is a little clunky, and thus far I haven't seen a way for multiple users to adjust the dates on the same event.

2017-11-18

Pros

I love that it is free and so easy to use.

Cons

The notifications you get through email can be overwhelming and I have to instruct new users how to work the software when they aren't familiar with it

Easy to use, mobile friendly, free

2017-10-17

Pros

It can even be integrated with Google Calendars.

Cons

The second issue that I have is that when users change their availability, it often ends up getting created as a new entry, in a new row, which makes it difficult to track that particular person's overall availability easily.

Actually makes life easier

2018-05-13

Pros

This is an incredibly easy software to use - I LOVE that I don't have to have a login.

Cons

And it's not really a con, but sometimes I get too many notifications when people submit an answer, but I honestly just don't like getting email.

Great for meeting scheduling

2017-11-14

Easy group scheduling and coordination

Pros

The dates can be arranged as a list or as a calendar view, and there's an option to see what times other respondents have indicated.

Cons

Sometimes the frequency of emails that you get about new responses can be a little overwhelming, so if you're polling a large group, that may be the only downside.

2018-02-13

Pros

Free application which can be quickly setup and shared to anyone independent of their corporate systems and saves endless emails.

Cons

Only frustration is that when using with a large range of times and days can be difficult to compare with egg your own work calendar.

Having trouble arranging meetings? This is the app for you

2018-03-15

Pros

It's really easy to complete, and mobile friendly, but also is super easy to create one to send to everyone!

Cons

Sometimes the format of the timing is not understood, so it would be great if you could choose if you wrote the time in "AM" or "PM" and avoid misunderstandings. Also, it would be great if when answering you could copy and paste your answers to another day.
