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.

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.

Simple, Easy to Use Survey Software

2018-05-28

Pros

- Amazing for scheduling availability - Works well on both desktop and mobile - Very cost effective - Quick and easy to generate surveys (once you learn the platform)

Cons

- Not terribly robust in features, very modest - Integrations with other platforms aren't great - Take a bit of learning to send out the most effective surveys

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.

I love doodle!

2018-09-03

They also offer little tools like email and calendar reminders once an option has been chosen.

Pros

Eliminate the back and forth of arranging a multi-party meeting!

Cons

I can't think of anything that I don't like about Doodle.

Excellent application of organization and control.

2018-07-30

Pros

This application makes it easier to plan a particular event by sending a notification to users as a survey the availability of attending said activity to the possibilities of time you have.

Cons

It is very practical and easy to create events can be used by various e-mail operators, perhaps one of the disadvantages that it has is that innumerable advertisements are displayed every day which maybe for me is annoying but the rest is a very useful application for the organization of any activity that takes place within the organization.

My Go To Solution for Scheduling Without a Shared Calendar

2018-08-16

Pros

When working with groups who don't have a shared calendar, Doodle is my go to solution for figuring out when everyone can be available.

Cons

It isn't as user friendly to view from mobile, so I always view on a web browser.

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.

I can't do my job without Doodle

2018-08-06

We have a very large campus with a so many different admins that handle calendars for their executives.

Pros

This software enables me to make it easy for admins and meeting attendees to mark out their availability for meetings or events without having to play that horrible email game. I use the free version so there is some functionality I can't speak to, but the free version is great.

Cons

The new interface is a little wonky at times - you tab to get to a time, but then have to space again to enter the time if you're using just your keyboard.

Perfect to organize a large group meeting

2018-08-21

Eliminating wasteful communication and debates over timing and spending time analyzing multiple calendars to find good meeting dates.

Pros

Very easy to setup, enter in date and time options and email addresses and you are done!

Cons

Colleagues have complained that going back in and changing their responses after already confirming openings has been confusing, but I think its an easy think to train/show people!

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.

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

Great for scheduling meetings with several participants

2018-08-21

My overall experience has been positive with Doodle being a valuable tool when scheduling events with more than 5 attendees.

Pros

Pretty easy to use right off the bat.

Cons

I find it necessary to enter email addresses myself as I've never been successful accessing my contacts from within the program.
