"Doodle Simple scheduling!!"

What do you like best?

I like Doodle for scheduling for clients and within the company. Honestly, have even used this to plan things with friends when life gets hectic. It's straightforward/user-friendly interface is my favorite part.

What do you dislike?

I can honestly say I have no cons at this point. I have never had to even deal with customer service to resolve an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I love how easy this makes it schedule something for multiple people. Simply picking a few dates and times and seeing the overlap of availability for your team makes it so much easier and faster to pick a time for a meeting. It’s is intuitive and very simple to use plus it gives an easy visualization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product is a superb addition for anyone wanting to ease out their programming issues through an accord vote. the benefit of results mental image is fantastic! I feel this could be employed by virtually each team member within the software system trade.

"Doodle to organize your meetings"

What do you like best?

The goal of Doodle is to make it easier for a group of people to choose a time to meet, be it a business meeting or a family dinner. In a minute, you can set up a survey to find a date and time for an event. When finished, the survey will be available online for your colleagues or friends to visit and vote. It's great that people responding to the survey do not need to register in a Doodle account to do so.

As people respond, Doodle records the results and tells you which date and time work best for everyone, or at least which option got the most votes. It is simple and fast. When you are selecting dates and times to offer as options for a survey, you can switch to a calendar view, which may not sound like something to write, but it's the little things that make Doodle so useful.

I like that Doodle is compatible with Google Calendar, iCloud, Microsoft Office 365 and Outlook.

What do you dislike?

I am in favor of getting rid of the unnecessary emails and online discussions about whether a particular time and date works for all the people you would like to see or put on the phone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this simple application, it's worth a lot to obtain it and be part of its community of users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Doodle for years, and my biggest complaint is that it is not used by other people. . Doodle is an excellent productivity tool, and is a choice for anyone who wants to organize their meetings.

"I love Doodle."

What do you like best?

I use this product anytime I actually have to coordinate a gathering among the workplace and out of the workplace. Doodle is straightforward to use for all concerned and straightforward to line up, most of the time, counting on what percentage choices in days and times you're giving a party

What do you dislike?

The found out of multiple dates and times will generally be super arduous to use.I try and get a number of solid times and dates and not provide too several choices, as a result of it will get extremely clumsy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I solved the problem of scheduling in and out of the office. It is super easy to use and it is necessary. I usually get Doodle invitations still from colleagues to line up conferences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Definitely, use Doodle if you're programming any quite appointment or meeting if you've got quite 3 staff or people. I would additionally use anytime I required to schedule a reoccurring appointment.

"Scheduling Meetings and Outings Made East"

What do you like best?

Doodle is a great tool for assessing a large group's availability for meetings, outings, or other scheduled events. It allows you to propose different times, and collect lots of responses in order to eliminate back and forth. It has functionality to collect responses anonymously, so it can be good for scheduling interviews. It also easily summarizes peoples' availability once everyone has responded, so you can find an optimal time. Finally, the site is easy to use and the link to the survey is easily shareable. It has saved me a lot of time and back and forth when trying to assess feasibility of events.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of many things I dislike about doodle. The one improvement I would make is for people to be able to provide comments/propose new times on the doodle. Perhaps there could also be a way to confirm the selected time at the end of the process with all the people who have filled the doodle out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems include wrangling large groups of people and their fluctuating calendars in order to find a time that works best for everyone; constantly reaching out to confirm with people, and having a hard time visualizing availability in a clear way. The benefits include greater ease of scheduling, less time consuming reach out to get availability, and the ability to clearly visualize availability in order to find optimal pockets of time for everyone.

"transforms tedious scheduling into something fun"

What do you like best?

The design is so simple and easy, with one page to walk the user through each step of scheduling. I also like the colors and the ease of logging into the account! The details are always there, such as different time zones and there is immense flexibility in determining the dates and times that we can offer, allowing us to custom tailor different meeting options for different groups.

What do you dislike?

Would appreciate it if it were be easier to change and view time zones, as often participants for the meetings I schedule are scattered across the globe. Selecting multiple options could also be easier, instead of needing to type in dozens and dozens of time slots individually. An option to highlight and/or group select times would be immensely helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle solve all of my problems when it comes to scheduling external groups who are volunteering at nonprofit organizations. These users are giving of their time, so we want to make scheduling as easy as possible. And Doodle really helps with that!

"Fantastic Collaborative Scheduling Tool"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the ease of using Doodle, even if other people don't have a Doodle account. You are able to easily set up endless time options that everyone will see, and the best part is that other users who are selecting their availability can see how many other people are available and can use that information to best select a date for everyone! Especially when you're scheduling last minute team meetings, Doodle is the perfect solution to let everyone seethe schedule and pick a time accordingly. I love Doodle!

What do you dislike?

I haven't come across any glaring issues with Doodle, actually, although I'm excited to begin trying out their new features like the 1:1 scheduling or survey features that I haven't used.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Doodle is an amazing tool for scheduling many people across a team. It's easy to use, and users don't even have to have a Doodle account to answer a scheduling inquiry. I use this tool to schedule meetings for my sub-team on our school's advertising and marketing team and it is very easy to coordinate across many different students' busy schedules. We all use doodle to schedule anything, from meetings to fun dinner plans and we love it so if you're on the fence, I totally recommend Doodle! It's the best product for scheduling!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While we're not necessarily solving business problems, Doodle is a fantastic tool for collaborating within a team, or even across multiple teams.

"Very helpful and helps keep everyone organized."

What do you like best?

It's quick, easy, and organized. It saves the headache of trying to schedule and organize large groups of people. I especially like the option that users can say whether or not they are available at a certain time but if it may not be desirable. You can email out the link, which is easy for distribution.

What do you dislike?

It can be hard to navigate at times - especially when trying to set up the times. It took me a few tries to figure out how to set certain times instead of having it set for all day. It may be helpful to be able to set higher priority opinions (i.e. the boss' availability has more priority than those underneath him), and an automatic email for those who received the link and did not complete the doodle poll.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It makes it very easy to see other's availability and to schedule meetings with large groups. I especially like the option to choose if a time is available, but not desirable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organization and scheduling of meetings, and opinion polling on availability based on days/times.

"A simple way to organize"

What do you like best?

This tool is very useful when organizing events, especially if they have a large number of attendees. It is very simple to use, with a set of options thought for and for the ultimate function of this resource, being this way very effectively.

What do you dislike?

It can be tedious to navigate among innumerable options; This is easily solved by a good selection of the options by the creator of the survey.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommended for people in charge of organizing events with many attendees. It greatly facilitates the task of matching agendas, quickly and easily. Save time and headaches

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves a lot of time and squares more easily since everyone can indicate on the same platform what their availability is without having to ask person by person by email. In addition, in general, the results are more convenient for all participants, since they adapt to the preferences of the majority.

"Organized and Easy"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the ease of collaborating with others quickly and the simplicity of finding availability from others. We are a large department at our university that serves many different careers and schedules. Doodle makes it fast and easy to figure out what times work best for everyone we're inviting to a meeting, production, or celebration. I enjoy the checkbox interface as well, since it is extremely user friendly and simple it removes any risk of confusion among those who aren't as tech savvy.

What do you dislike?

The horizontal scroll bar. It would be easier to see if all dates on the checklist were viewable at once. There is the expand button, which allows you to see as much as your screen will show, but it would be nice if that were simply the default. The calendar view could be improved upon as well, seeing as it only allows you to see one day at a time. I think if the interface were more similar to a monthly/weekly Google Calendar type of view, it would be easier to use. As it is right now, it just looks messy and unorganized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Jump in! Doodle will save you lots of time and energy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle makes organizing meetings, video shoots, and appointments so much easier. Now, instead of a lengthy, sloppy email chain, we simply fill out our availability and select the time that works best. Less time and less hassle. It also helps to sync schedules on days that we have to work together a lot!

"How we schedule all our meetings"

What do you like best?

I work with a non-profit and our team members are all over the country. Doodle makes it easy for us to figure out when the largest number of people are available to schedule Skype calls, and automatically adjusts times for different time zones so no one needs to do that math in their heads.

What do you dislike?

I would like the option to say how long the meeting will be and then to give time ranges of availability rather than just giving options for the meeting times. If we list all the options starting on the hour or half hour, and team members are available for just a portion of that time, there's no good time to indicate that other than saying "no" or saying "yes/maybe" and then being late or having to leave early.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No more lengthy conversations like the following:

"Are you guys available on Monday afternoon?"

"I am, but only from 3pm on."

"I'm not, can we do Tuesday instead?"

"That sounds great!" "Yeah!"

"No, I have a thing on Tuesday...."

"Extremely helpful for meetings"

What do you like best?

This is by far the best tool for scheduling meetings. I know a lot of people try to rely on google calendars or what not but I've found that a lot of people either don't use their calendar regularly or they use multiple calendars. Using doodle allows you to just ask someone to confirm if they're available and then when everyone fills it out, you can see what days and times work.

What do you dislike?

The site is fairly basic. It could use a revamp visually but it does what you want it to so that is fine really. It's just a minor thing that it would be cool to have it be a bit more aesthetically appealing or interactive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's really helpful for meetings! I'm not sure how people get by without it. It has been well used in all of my jobs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's ideal for scheduling meetings when you don't know who actually uses their calendars or who has separate calendars. I know some people will have their work meetings on a google calendar but then they'll keep their personal calendar separate even if they have a doctor's appointment during the day. If you were to just rely on their calendar, you wouldn't know that. It allows you to let other people tell you when they are available.

"Facilitates event planning and survey creation"

What do you like best?

It is the best online programming tool to find a date and time for many people to meet. Easy, simple, highly utilitarian. You can connect to your existing calendar and the premium version is free of advertising, which means no ads are displayed that distract survey participants. The custom subdomain option allows you to create an individual URL for faster access to surveys, for example, compangxyz.doodle.com. Security is another area where the premium version shines by protecting sensitive internal data with end-to-end SSL encryption. This means that all information is securely transmitted over the Internet and encrypted for both businesses and participants. Comprehensive user management capabilities allow all users to be managed in a perfectly organized format. In addition, it offers the possibility to connect to through an apps (Doodle Mobile) that allows users to access information using their mobile devices and offers a panoramic view of all surveys...

What do you dislike?

One drawback that are presented with some of their versions, is an enormous amount of advertising which can generate the distraction of the respondent. Although it is true that in its premium version is solved should improve this aspect in the other versions of the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through doodle's surveys we can perform market studies or in relation to the degree of satisfaction for the service provided to our customers, is an excellent tool.

"Always my go to for scheduling meetings. "

What do you like best?

I love Doodle. I use this product anytime I have to coordinate a meeting within the office and out of the office. Doodle is easy to use for all involved and easy to set up, most of the time, depending on how many options in days and times you are giving a party.

What do you dislike?

The set up of multiple dates and times can sometimes be super hard to use. I try to get a few solid times and dates and not offer too many options, because it can get really clunky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely use Doodle if you are scheduling any kind of appointment or meeting if you have more than three employees or individuals. I would also use anytime I needed to schedule a reoccurring appointment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solved the problem of scheduling in and out of the office. It is super easy to use and it is necessary. I often get Doodle invites as well from colleagues to set up meetings.

"Easy scheduler for time slot sign-ups and group organization"

What do you like best?

I work for a volunteer organization that helps to produce a no experience required musical theater performance. We used Doodle to help us with a bake sale time slot sign-up. For our bake sale we had multiple volunteers who were asked to sign up for multiple time slots over the course of three days. Doodle was simple to use and made it quick and easy to organize the sign-ups.

What do you dislike?

There is very little to dislike about using the Doodle app. However, nothing is perfect. When using the Doodle we found that our only dislike was that there are only a few functions available for the free version, which is unfortunate. But for our purposes the app functioned very well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not too much, instructions are very easy to follow as long as the app is being used for its specified purpose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems we are solving with Doodle revolve around scheduling and organizing for our different fund raisers for our volunteer organization. The main benefit is the ability to see all responses from the different users for one time slot at the same time.

The app also works for voting, for example voting for a theme for an event. The functionality is similar to that as the scheduling, so it is just as easy for the users. We have used this "voting" feature to help vote for which different fundraising events we would like to perform.

"Ideal for finding time frame for small group mtgs"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to go in and individually select dates and times for meetings. Scheduling get togethers around 5-15 people's busy schedules is difficult but the clean interface allows users to see their fellow respondents' responses in real time.

What do you dislike?

Limited amount of time frames that can be used to offer as potential meeting dates and times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like it. For surveys and scheduling it's very user friendly and easy to learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I find getting together face to face, even if only for half an hour, can be far more productive than two dozen potentially misinterpreted emails sent back and forth among several people for days at a time. By making the process of finding time to meet easier, being able to meet and hash out problems is so much easier. Meeting have become more frequent and more productive while still being attentive to each other's schedules.

"Easier meetings"

What do you like best?

Doodle does simplify scheduling appointments and meet-ups at work or otherwise pretty easily.

What do you dislike?

It is frustrating to create a survey for when to meet up. There are options, yes, but it is not user-friendly and requires people to click through all the times they are available. As a user, I feel as if it is better to email them my available times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For business, this software helps get everyone on the same page but they will be on that page for a long time! The efficiency is in the bringing-people-together part, for new users it's a bit difficult, but with a little practice, it can be used without problems

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software is platform agnostic, so it can be used by anyone as long as they have access. The plethora of options that one has to create a survey is astounding as well.

"Benefits of Doodle"

What do you like best?

Doodle is a fast and easy survey maker which is extremely beneficial as a college student. It allows an individual to work with large groups of people and come to a concrete decision, which does not always workout over text. I have used doodle a numerous amount of time while establishing a date for an event or asking my friends what time works best for them to meet.

What do you dislike?

I honestly have been very happy with doodle the only difficulty I have faced is individuals not being able to access the link at times which happens very rarely and can be attributed to the user and not necessarily doodle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has solved my organizations problem of establishing meeting times. It makes it clear as to when we should meet and also lets us know how many people can make it to the meetings.

"Doodle Ease of Use and System Compatibility"

What do you like best?

I love doodle because it has a simple user interface, and it is easy for everyone to use. It is compatible with iPhone, Android, and on Google, Firefox web browsers. I also like the option to select dates that we absolutely need, and it makes scheduling very simple.

What do you dislike?

I dislike it because it takes a long time to make polls, especially if I have many options available and open. It takes time to make each individual time slot, so I hope they implement a system to automatically add multiple time slots at once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend others to use Doodle because it has a very flexible scheduling system that is easy to use, available on multiple platforms, and is entirely free! You don't need to make an account on Doodle to make a poll: you just click on the bright blue tab on the right to make a poll. The user interface is really easy to navigate, and there is a step-by-step process to get what you need done.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scheduling. I definitely get a lot of people who need to schedule a date to rehearse for performances, conduct meetings, or even hang out with friends. The biggest benefit is how easy it is to access: there are NO sign-ins required, and everyone can use it.

"Could be better"

What do you like best?

Doodle does everything I need it to do. It helps me schedule students for tabling events throughout the semester (before I was using google forms and had to go through and figure out availability by myself, which was never good). I like the new double click for "if need be" option.

What do you dislike?

Doodle works great, but I wish it had a notification option for people who haven't filled it out yet. Like, I should be able to send out a notification if I plunk in some emails or something like that. I don't have a definitive plan, but chasing people down to answer a Doodle poll is one of the downfalls of Doodle itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't splurge on the premium package if you don't need to. The free version works just fine!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle makes scheduling an absolute breeze. Before I used Doodle, my students never knew when to show up for events-- now I can just copy and paste the table of their availability into an email and they'll know when to show up. It has made my work life so much easier.

"Doodle is great for setting up meetings"

What do you like best?

Doodle is extremely easy to use and a great tool for finding what time works best for team members to meet. One of the problems with setting up a time to meet with a group is conflicting schedules. Instead of going back and forth, Doodle allows its users to enter a variety of dates and times, have group members abswer the poll, and then figure out what day and time works best for everyone. I use this tool constantly at work and when volunteering with organizations. It has made my life so much easier. Highly recommend!

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is not much I dislike about Doodle. It is a relatively simple tool so it does not have many bells and whistles - but that's the beauty of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle enables a group leader to determine what date and time works best for group members to meet without having to bother with 100 back and forth emails.

"Easy Group Scheduling "

What do you like best?

This website allows large (and small) groups to find the common free time among them to set a meeting time. It is so simple and makes gathering people's schedules and seeing those free pockets of time that line up for everyone quick and easy. This has allowed me to set up meetings as well as fill office shifts with workers because I can see people's availability with ease.

What do you dislike?

If you are wanting to know the availability of people during all 40 hours of the work week, it takes a lot of clicking to set up the poll. Specifically if there are certain times you want to not include in the poll, you cannot click the "all-day" option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A lot of options are being turned into "Premium" only, and are no longer free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Doodle to gather committees together as well as plan staff meetings. I also used it to help schedule shifts for my office workers to insure that each hour was covered by at least one person.

"Doodle my new best friend"

What do you like best?

I like the orderly of the platform, everything is very clean in the user panel, it is easy to interact on the page, there is no way to get lost.

What do you dislike?

There aren't very many cons that I can think of for this software. The main one is that others can see your availability aside from the person who made the Doodle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Doodle is one of the applications that help you manage some tasks that are sometimes difficult to program manually or remember, it is simple and easy to use, in addition to the option to collaborate and see the doodles of other colleagues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this software to schedule dates, work meetings, some calls and tasks in the company. This allows each member to select their availability making it easy to see when each person is free.

"Need to schedule with a lot of people? Use Doodle"

What do you like best?

It is a simple program to use and gets you the result you need. Being able to find a time between a lot of people schedules without having to do a massive email chain is a blessing. I have used this to schedule almost every meeting I have ever done.

Another cool feature is that you can edit your response if your schedule changes instead of having to email the doodle poll creator. It is also very easy to send out to people as all you need to do is email the link out to people and wait for people to respond.

Another part I like about it is that doodle automatically tells you what the best time is and you do not need to go searching for it.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes a lot of clicks to do get all the times and can be a little time-consuming. If you are not using the premium feature you have to look through to see who did not fill it out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to find a time with a lot of people this is the best tool. As you can tailor it to when you are free and everyone fills in what they can do. It also hooks up to google calendar as well for when you fill out doodle pools it can automatically do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding time to meet with multiple people without relying on google calendar.

"Doodle is your event planning Friend!"

What do you like best?

Doodle allows you to see a 3000 foot overview of who is able to join your event on which days! You can see in one line which date is best for everyone. Once planning this event you can even send a calendar invitation to all that have agreed to being free on that date. With the private and business subscription you are able to create a custom domain as well as sub domains. The sky is the limit!

What do you dislike?

The free option is a big challenge to manage all your users. If you want this tool for business I would suggest that you choose the paid option. It can be a challenge for companies that don't have much budget because its a hard justification to pay for a tool you only use for planning events.

I would not use this tool to book customer meetings for sales.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Review your needs, for businesses I would highly suggest paying for the paid plans

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internal business problems is the only thing that Doodle solves for us. We use this tool to plan internal events, whether you are located in the same city or remote it is a great tool that will allow all of us to plan an event/training that we can all attend.

I realized a lot of people don't use this tool internally because they are not aware of the benefits that doodle has.

"Quick, simple way to get things scheduled for large groups of people"

What do you like best?

I have used Doodle for scheduling meetings and events since 2011. It is my go-to website for a quick, simple way to get things scheduled for anywhere from 3 to 100 people. It eliminates the need for drawn-out conversations about "who can do what when" and color-codes dates and times that work for everyone. I love this software!

What do you dislike?

I think the software has gotten a bit more complicated over the years--which would be a positive for many people, although I really appreciate simplicity. I think the early version of Doodle was the best for my personal needs scheduling meetings in a quick and simple way. The current system still gets the job done, however the added features can be confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth signing up and using.

"Easiest way to find a time that works for EVERYONE"

What do you like best?

Doodle is SO easy to use. The site leads you through the appropriate steps flawlessly. Pick the date and time options that may work, send an email to all attendees and wait for the right time to appear. This is a great tool for work meetings, extra curricular activities, personal items and more. You can integrate your Doodle activities to your most used calendar, too!

What do you dislike?

There seems to be less perks on the free version than there used to be. Understandable, but with a tight software budget, it is not at the top of our priority list.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's super easy to try for free, and great for your personal life, too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No longer do we have to go back and forth multiple time to figure out a meeting invite, but everyone still has flexibility to choose what works best for them. I think this works best for extra curricular within the office. For example, a small group on our team works on innovation within the company. While most people's Outlook calendars are up to date, everyone has a different work schedule (i.e. lunch break, when they're most productive, etc.). Doodle makes it easy to be accommodating for everyone.

"Doodle allows me to coordinate with anyone for meetings/events"

What do you like best?

I like that doodle allows me to sync my google calendar and then create polls to see when meetings and events will work best with others.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there is only a limited amount of what you can access with the free account. There are more options when you pay for the subscription. All in all, though, it does allow you to coordinate with others which is the main point of the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure that you have time to play around with all of the nuances of Doodle. It takes time to understand the app, but once you have understood it it is very easy to implement and easy for people to select their meeting time based on the poll. It will simply send an e-mail to the recipients for them to answer the poll.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are several IEP and Teacher Support Team meetings that have to be coordinated with several people throughout the district. Using doodle to coordinate these meetings with many different people allows people to have a say in when the best to meet is, and have it be the least complicated way instead of sending many emails about when would work best to meet.

"Doodle makes scheduling meetings easy"

What do you like best?

Doodle makes scheduling meetings extremely easy, even when you have many attendees. Some of the best features of this program include:

1) You are able to customize options for meeting times - the times can be different each day of the week. Also, if you wish to have some time slots longer or shorter than others, that is an option.

2) The poll automatically converts to the respondents time zones - this is an amazing perk when you work with people in many different (including international) time zones!

3) You can receive a convenient notification to your email each time someone responds to the poll, making it easy to track responses.

4) You can allow respondents to reply with "yes," "no" and "if need be" - this helps if you have extremely busy respondents and are having a hard time finding an option that works for everyone.

5) It is free to use!

What do you dislike?

The layout can be somewhat clunky and cumbersome for replies if there are a large number of time options. However, this is a very minor issue!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work with a lot of very busy people who are located all across the globe. Before finding Doodle, trying to schedule conference calls was a nightmare. Doodle is easy to use as the person setting up the meeting and is also easy for respondents.

"Doodle Poll - 110% recommendation!"

What do you like best?

The extent to which this software can be used for free is incredible, as is its functionality. I have planned many an event in many a capacity using Doodle Poll. The functionality of Doodle Poll on the whole is incredible specifically because it is scalable to specific usage needs. If the only thing necessary is to examine what days people are available, Doodle can do that. If, on the other hand, you desire to examine people's preferences, Doodle can do that too. It's a wonderful piece of freeware.

What do you dislike?

Just about the only thing I dislike is (again, using for free) the ability for anyone to change anyone else's answers. I've never had it personally be a problem, but I can see the potential for malicious use there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is tempting to use WhenToMeet in Doodle's place due to the ability to highlight specific times you're available. Don't underestimate Doodle's functionality in such instances - you may find that Doodle is able to do such things better!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle allows for effective scheduling of meetings by not just seeing the quantity of people able to be at a given meeting time but also the specific people available at specific times.

"Doodle makes scheduling so easy!"

What do you like best?

I use Doodle very often. It makes scheduling so easy. I often need to schedule meetings with a large group of people, and Doodle polls make it very simple to find a time when the most people are available.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes a long time to enter multiple time windows in as options, especially if they are staggered by 30 minutes. It would be nice to have an auto-fill type option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend using Doodle to schedule meetings and events. It makes life so much easier. All responses are aggregated in on place, and the website shows me which day/time slots work best for the group.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Doodle to schedule meetings with large groups of people. People click a link that I send via email, select times for which they are available, and submit their response. I am then able to see all participants' results and can easily find a time that fits everyone's schedules best.

"Scheduling at the tip of your fingertips"

What do you like best?

I love using doodle to coordinate large events which may otherwise be near impossible to coordinate and schedule on your own.

What do you dislike?

I absolutely dislike when doodle is used to schedule a meeting or event time but a huge polls is used. When the poll and options are too vast, it makes scheduling a huge hassle. Doodle should be used with a limited number of options to help narrow and schedule more efficiently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use doodle to your advantage, it is a great toll but please do not make huge polls, keep it sweet, simple and to the point. That is when this software really shines.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem that I am solving with doodle is scheduling important meetings and training sessions with new and current employees. It helps to narrow down a time and place that works for (almost) everyone and helps us get the show on the road.

"Encuestas más eficaces"

What do you like best?

Se trata de una aplicación gratuita, muy fácil de usar y útil, sobre todo a la hora de planificar eventos y reuniones con numerosos asistentes. Me parece útil el hecho de enviar a los asistentes la invitación para participar en la encuesta a través de un enlace, sin necesidad de crearse cuentas. Las opciones que ofrece la aplicación son adecuadas a su propósito, haciendo que su uso sea intuitivo.

What do you dislike?

La aplicación, así como su diseño, puede resultar demasiado simple para los usuarios más exigentes.

A veces, cuando hay muchas opciones de fechas y horarios diferentes, o incluso muchos participantes resulta incómodo mirar rápidamente todo de un vistazo, pues es necesario navegar entre dichas opciones, que no aparecen agrupadas en una sola pantalla (hay que deslizar). También se producen, en raras ocasiones, problemas con la sincronización de la app de calendario.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo muchísimo este software a cualquiera que tenga que planificar reuniones con mucha gente. Eso sí, la persona que realice la encuesta tiene que pensar detenidamente las opciones que va a proponer: que no sean ni escasas ni abrumadoras. ¡A ahorrar tiempo y quebraderos de cabeza!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desde que usamos Doodle en el trabajo, la organización de eventos con los compañeros y elección tanto de horarios como de fechas se ha vuelto mucho más sencilla. Ya no es necesario que una persona se dedique en cuerpo y alma a organizar las reuniones y se ponga en contacto una por una con todas las personas interesadas para cuadrar las agendas. Ahorra muchísimo tiempo y los resultados son más convenientes, claros y justos.

"Good product"

What do you like best?

I like how accessible it is and that you don't need any special account to answer the polls. I really like how easy it is to use as well, that it doesn't require much technological skill to be able to navigate it. I would definitely recommend it to someone who needs to do simple polling.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike much about it except that there are ads, but I know that you can get a premium account to have an ad-free experience. Other than that, there is not much I dislike because I appreciate that it is a simple service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of having to ask everyone what time they are available. We don't have to check everyones calendars to schedule something, they can just tell us when they are free.

"The best system to decide a date for a meeting or for what do you want"

What do you like best?

It's free and it works perfectly.

You don't need an account to join a poll.

There is a lot of posibilities when you are creating an event.

The design is really intuitive and it is really easy to use

Doodle is also really fast, you just need a few minutes to create your poll

What do you dislike?

Some updates are not as good as an exigent user would like.

The timezone setup should improve, sometimes that is a bit confusing.

Sometimes you can find some minor bugs, but it isn't a problem

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion Doodle works better than other utility applications, everyone should try doodle at least one time. The free Doodle tool works great, but the business offers more options for an experienced user

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doodle allows us to work faster with our workers, and also you can use doodle for meetings with your friends for example. Doodle is fast and that is really significant if you do not want to waste your time
