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

Coming from lotus notes I was instantly in love with outlook. I loves its clean and simple interface.
Overall, we are very happy and fulfilled with the Outlook software as it stands now and expect it to only get better.
As a software it is very good option. Nice looking UI, user friendly, good email management, directly integrated in Microsoft office.

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

The worst part I would say however is the app. They developed an app for the apple store and quite honestly it is slow and very difficult to navigate around compared to the desktop version.
Crash , no easy access from my phone , new emails update rate , older emails storage , retriving the older emails or lost emails is a big deal.
The interface has too much going on. There are a lot of useless features that i needed to turn off.

Great for Teams

Reviewed 4 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.

The solution for busy schedule owners

Reviewed 4 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.

Simplified scheduling for free!

Reviewed 6 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.

Doodle

Best way to schedule meetings when using multiple calendars

Reviewed 3 years 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.

L’alleato della tua agenda

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

È gratuita, è la svolta nella vita organizzativa sia universitaria che lavorativa Doodle è utilissima per creare sondaggi e riunioni di gruppo, è uno spazio d’incontro e punto d’accordo. Questo software organizza incontri e riunioni e una volta confermata la data, questa viene aggiunta automaticamente al calendario . Inoltre si può integrare con altre app, Zoom, Microsoft Outlook, WhatsApp e così via

Cons

In fase di registrazione, quando mi sono registrata con Google (con la mia email automaticamente registrata da Google), c’è voluto tanto perché mi arrivasse l’email di avvenuta registrazione, migliorerei la fase iniziale quindi. Inoltre l’app si blocca spesso. Può sicuramente rappresentare uno svantaggio il fatto che Doodle scelga automaticamente come giorno del meeting la data che ha ricevuto più voti sul poll, senza avere la possibilità di consultarsi molto, questo può sicuramente essere un inconveniente

I've seen the benefits of it for use from an academic standpoint since professors would use it to schedule make-up classes. When I've used it, it made scheduling a time much easier.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use and set up scheduling. The interface is much cleaner and easier to see than other software like MS Outlook.

Cons

The software could be used by much more people if it was somehow integrated with other services like Google/MS Outlook.

Using Doodle for large groups

Reviewed 6 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.

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

Reviewed 2 years 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.

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