Essential for choosing the best dates & times to meet as a group

Pros: We've all been in a group text or email chain trying to figure out what date and times work best for everyone. It's impossible to keep track of who can meet when! That's where doodle comes in as your group's best option. Doodle allows you to create a poll with dates and/or times of your choosing. You then send that Doodle link via email or text message to your group of friends. They simply click the link, type in their name, and click on all the dates/times they can meet. Once everyone has voted, it is easy to see what dates/times work for the most amount of people.

The best thing about Doodle is that it is free for everyone. There's nothing to download. You simply click a link. After doing so, the instructions are crystal clear. There is basically no learning curve. And no one has to keep track of who said what date and what time because Doodle will present that information for you in a very simple way.

Also, you can choose whether everyone can see what dates others chose or not. You can even choose to limit the # of votes each person has if you wish to.

Cons: One of the cons is that if you want to put a deadline on your poll, you're going to have to pay for it by being a premium doodle user. This is not such a big deal because you can just tell your friends to vote by a certain date... but we all have those slackers in our groups who decide not to vote until it is already too late.

Another con is that Doodle's homepage has become increasingly cluttered as it attempts to add features to its premium users (for organizers and for businesses over 1,000 people). It's simple enough to filter through to create your poll though.

Overall: I love Doodle. Choosing the best dates and times to meet has never been easier. Next time you need to schedule a meeting or a group dinner, Doodle it.

So much better than confusing and never ending e-mail chains

Pros: Have you ever tried to get a bunch of science professors to meet in the same room at the same time for a few hours? It's like herding cats, but luckily there is Doodle. The best part about Doodle is that I don't have to e-mail people back and forth to try to coordinate an event from multiple perspectives. Doodle eliminates ambiguity and allows everyone to see everyone else's exact availability for multiple weeks at a time which saves time and effort. It is so interesting to me that meetings can be scheduled really without any words from any of the participants, and I think that is beautiful. Bonus points for not having to try to sound really smart in multiple e-mails to people who are way smarter than you.

Cons: The calendar syncing function seems like it could be a really good idea, but I have had some trouble syncing up all of my calendars in the past and I usually can't see any of my events on there. I'm not quite sure what the function is supposed to do but there is no explanation and I felt like it was not super intuitive.

Overall: My Ph.D. dissertation meetings are required every 6-12 months and it is really hard to get my entire dissertation committee together on a whim. Since professors are extremely busy people and don't really have time for a bunch of e-mails, Doodle software makes my and their lives so much easier.

Pros: Doodle is FANTASTIC for group scheduling. I have used the free version extensively for groups of various sizes and scheduling options of various numbers, and it beats any other form of group scheduling that I've tried (although I haven't used any other scheduling softwares, only emails/texts/unfortunately lengthy conversations). When creating a Doodle, there are many customizable options for date and time combinations, and it's easy to send a quick link to participants or send it directly from Doodle's site. There are options for polls to be visible to other participants or private; the visible option is great when we're trying to fill various volunteer shifts and want people to be able to see where we need the most support! When filling out a Doodle as a participant, it helps to be able to toggle back and forth between calendar and list views for schedules (although long lists still get a bit tedious to fill out if you are using a phone instead of a browser on your computer). It's also easy to go back to the link and edit your entry if your plans change.

Cons: If you have LOTS of scheduling options to consider, it can be difficult to add all of the entries when first creating the poll. There is a helpful "duplicate" option, but it doesn't work as well if you don't have the same times available each day.

Overall: Doodle is one of those companies whose product has become a commonly used noun or verb (Google, Tupperware, Saran Wrap, etc.), because it's just that useful! Any attempt to schedule a group meeting or event always wraps up quickly with a plan that "We'll just send out a Doodle!"

Pros: Doodle is a great tool to easily evaluate availability and schedule meetings for large, busy groups. The ability to customize times and the intuition built into Doodle-if I schedule a request for three hours then three hours translates to every subsequent date I select, makes this a great tool. Each invitee can see the response of others which can lend to being more flexible in your choices, and enhances getting a group to consensus on a date and time to meet. You can be proficient at using Doodle in a matter or minutes, both as a user and as an administrator. I love this product so much that I use it in business and also in setting up family events. There are three plans available, and if you are a casual user the free version should serve you well.

Cons: Plans are priced well, and the ability to remove ads and enhance communication with the premier version is very nice. A con of the free version is the weird ads you see running in the back ground as you are using the tool. However, not bothersome enough to change my favorable opinion of this great scheduling tool.

Pros: Doodle recently received a new feature that allows users to not just select the hourly times that work in their schedule to meet, but they can also double click a time, which says that they could make it work in their schedule if they had to. I think this is great because before this feature, I would have a really hard time finding a time to hold meetings because my co-workers had very conflicting schedules and we would just create a group message trying to figure it out, which defeated the purpose of filling out a Doodle. I love that feature! I also love Doodle 1:1 where you can link your Google Calendar to a Doodle so you don't double book yourself.

Cons: The website isn't always the most user friendly, and I often find myself clicking around aimlessly just to open up a new Doodle invite. I also wish Doodle would offer features to college students for free or really really discounted because I was the president of many student organizations and used Doodle all the time and would have appreciated being able to send reminders from Doodle.

Pros: The absolute best thing about using Doodle is that our entire organization and stakeholders love participating in it! We all use Doodle and most importantly, it makes our lives easy and guarantees buy-in and participation in order to pick the optimal meeting and scheduling times.

Cons: There is nothing to dislike about Doodle. It is easy, efficient, and well-like by all!

Overall: Doodle is a game-changer. In our busy lives and days, Doodle allows for us to schedule accurately and fairly. It eliminates the guesswork and time it would otherwise take to determine times that work best for all. Best of all, it's accessible via the palm of our hands and takes seconds to create. I can't imagine my day-to-day without Doodle and where I'd be if it wasn't for this amazing solution-solving software.

Strongly recommend- it's free and more users, more functionality to come!

Pros: It's free!!! I probably use Doodle once a week. It's the easiest program I've found to quickly make and distribute scheduling polls to multiple people. The developers have done a great job at making the program very easy to use and with just the right functionality for what you're looking for. We've actually started using Doodle for shift schedules so that our part time staff can easily sign up for shifts. It has worked wonderfully so far, we are very pleased. They put out new functionality fairly frequently, which is nice.

Cons: Biggest issue I have with this program is that you can edit an entry once you submit it. This makes things challenging when schedules or thoughts change. Other than that, the features aren't the most robust, but for a free program, you can't complain.

Pros: I have mainly used this for scheduling 1:1 sessions with students. Doodle has made that easy to do. I can provide multiple available times and send the link to my students and they can get in where they fit in. This takes the stress off of reaching and trying to schedule individual sessions with 15-17 students.

There is also a mobile app and that have provided some convenience.

I've also used the service when others are trying to plan meetings. I like ease of use of trying to find mutual available times for meetings. And it gives the option of allowing people to remain anonymous.

Cons: The functionality of this product can take some time to get comfortable with. I find that it takes me more time to put together my doodle than I anticipate, however, it's not something that has kept me from using it.

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: Nothing - it's great. 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.

Overall: We have a very large campus with a so many different admins that handle calendars for their executives. Not everyone is on our campusAD yet and even with those that are, some choose not to share their calendars so people can see Free/Busy. This makes it easy for me to pull together dates/time and have one location where I can track responses for what works and what doesn't.

Pros: I have used Doodle for years and to their credit, they have kept to their mission, which is to do one thing, and keep it simple. They add features, make it prettier, enhance the user interface but with great care and attention to the core value of simplicity. I never worry that some impatient manager or tech-averse person will balk. If you need schedule a meeting, this is THE way to do it, period. Also good if you need to quickly poll the team about a simple issue.

Cons: I suppose that for enterprise, might be a security worry, since people are reaching outside the firewall but even for that, you don't have to log in to use it. So, nope, cannot think of any reason to think about any other tool.

Pros: I'm still blown away by this software and so happy that I discovered it. My biggest headache when scheduling meetings, lunches, dinners, etc. is everyone's super busy schedule. With Doodle, all I have to do is send out date and time options and get everyone's availability. I love that it's a visual chart, so that I can easily see which date/time has the most people available, and then boom we have a meeting scheduled. No more, "Ok, Jan can make it Tuesday what about Thursday?" then another "Mike can't make it at 8:00am what about 7pm?" I just send out a Doodle calendar and I'm done!

Cons: There isn't anything that I don't like about Doodle. I think it's the best scheduling app out there.

Overall: My overall experience has been excellent. Even the people that I send scheduling requests to are so impressed by it that they start using it too. Doodle is definitely one of those apps that I'm always telling others about to make their lives easier.

Pros: I use doodle ALL THE TIME! It is the best tool to set meetings with a lot of attendees. It greatly minimizes the headaches of back and forth communications and streamlines the scheduling process.

I appreciate that doodle let's you send the poll link through your own email or through other messaging applications. This allows a great deal of flexibility and allows me keep all my contacts informed in the way that best works for them.

Cons: I really have nothing bad to say about doodle. It has greatly improved productivity. It is a wonderful product!

Overall: It is just flat out transformational in terms of the time I am saving, compared to chasing people down individually. If you aren't using doodle to set up meetings you are losing time and money.

Pros: I like Doodle's ease of use and practicability. I can easily put out multiple dates and times, and it's easy for users on the other end to respond. The user interface is clean and simple, and generally shows all input on one page. It can even be integrated with Google Calendars.

Cons: There are only two things that I don't like about Doodle, and both of these are quite minor. The first is that I have to scroll down to see the user inputs, as ads generally take over the top half of my screen. 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.

Doodle is simple and effective.

Pros: I find Doodle extremely user friendly and most people scheduling meetings with me had little to no issues using it for the first time.It is mobile compatible ,apart from offering a mobile app. therefore making it easy to use on the go.

Cons: I realized this is not as popular as Calendly. Therefore every time I am telling someone to schedule an appointment with me over Doodle,I have to spend extra time telling them what Doodle is all about.

Overall: Scheduling meetings can be time consuming and difficult.My use of Doodle has made the task of scheduling meetings ,interviews etc faster and less time consuming than it was in time past ,when I had to make multiple phone calls and exchange multiple emails in order to fix a meeting.

Pros: This is a very convenient way to organize survey results. It's quick to set up, easy to visualize on the website, and can be exported as a .csv as well!

With the paid version, you get a lot more feature and control, which is nice. The free version, however, will get the job doe for simple survey results. You can't ask for email address or set a deadline with the free version though!

Cons: There is no way to set unique limits for each options (e.g. you can limit each option to 30 available votes, but not 15 for some and 30 for others).

The date option is also limited - we tried to offer 30 minute hourly increments and had to instead make these text options as the date functionality only had months or weeks available.

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

Overall: I am the Principal Investigator of a NIH funded study that aims to test the efficacy of digital platforms in providing mental health services to people with serious mental illness. We use Doodle to engage participants in finding a time that works for all of them to deliver remote group therapy through videoconferencing. 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! will continue to use it in our future studies!

Pros: Doodle allows you to create a poll that can be sent to pre-determined invitees, or you can send a weblink in a regular email. This is probably the very easiest way to schedule a meeting with multiple people, if you can't see their calendars using Outlook.

Having time zones enabled makes webinar scheduling much simpler, and you can download results of the poll as an excel sheet, for analysis.

Cons: I wish that the polls didn't expire over time, since i use the same polls annually. This is only a minor annoyance, and I believe the polls are saved if you make a paid account, though.

Overall: Doodle allows you to create and administer polls with ease! It streamlines my job and makes the process more efficient for respondents as well.

Pros: Doodle simplifies the process of organizing meetings between my organization and our partners and clients. Since we began using Doodle , there has been less and less need to put a call across to our clients to try to fix a time for meetings. Rather , we simply send them a doodle web link , which contains available time schedules and our clients get to select a time schedule which works best for them.

Overall it has saved us from the nightmare of meeting scheduling ,while also saving us vital time that would had been expended deliberating on the best times for meetings.

Cons: I do not get the best of experiencing for the most times when I have tried accessing Doodle over my smartphone device.Therefore I always ensure I access Doodle via my Laptop.

I have used this tool on more occasions than I came name - both personally and professionally. Whether it is trying to schedule a meeting or gathering with a group of people, it's incredibly helpful to see who and when folks are available to choose the best day possible.

Cons: I don't think I can think of one possible drawback to this tool!

Pros: I can use this program to schedule meetings and get pretty good results. As invitees see everyone else's availability, it subconsciously helps to have them cooperate in scheduling an agreeable time.

Cons: Somehow I've found that some people just don't get how to use this very simple program. It's really a no brained but I've had some older citizens just not get it. I chalk it up to not being savvy with ANY software.

Overall: Overall, this is an easy program to use. It has a free portion that I use since my scheduling is not done often. However, I love the fact that invitees can see who can meet when and if there's a hard to reach/schedule person on the list, they can and do try to work their own schedule around that person.

Pros: Doodle is the best software to use when you want to schedule a meeting with a large number of people.

I like that the doodle website is free of advertisements.

Cons: I cannot think of any cons of doodle. It is free for everyone, easy to use, and does what it is supposed to do. I would definitely suggest this software to anyone who is planning to set up a meeting time with more than 3 people.

Pros: I really like how easy Doodle is to use and I like the design of the website. With just four steps, it is a very simple process to create a poll. Visually, it is very easy to see what times work and don't work for people based on the coloring and the size of the text. I also appreciate that there are integration tools and Doodle makes it very easy to share your poll with your participants. Having the options to reply: yes, no, and if need be is huge. There are times that I would prefer to avoid a certain time, but could make it work if need be. I haven't ever found an easy way to communicate that in the past.

Cons: I wish you could customize polls to ask for people's top 2 or top 3 choices. The software either allows you to limit it to one or to have no limit. Also, sometimes on mobile, I have trouble navigating the tables and scrolling through the options when I am filling out a poll.

Pros: I like the ability to organize and schedule a variety of individuals and volunteers for special tasks and for meetings. The latter is especially when not everyone works and has access to a personal computerized calendar of their own. It allows choice and avoids the need to make calls regarding availability. So much faster to get a snapshot of everyone's availability.

Cons: The only con is that it can sometimes be cumbersome to edit and existing event or meeting poll. In some cases, it has been easier for me to start over rather than work through the editing issues.

Pros: I love being able to get everyone's opinion/choice for something without everyone going off the rails. Giving clear choices and limited room for unwanted input makes getting to an endpoint much faster.

Cons: Sometimes it's a bit clunky to get the configurations you want, but it just takes some time and tweaking. It's also a bit clunky when clicking through on mobile. I use it 99% of the time on my laptop, though, as does most of my team.

Overall: We use it most often to decide what everyone will eat for lunch when we do Food Truck Fridays at the office. We'll also decide who gets on what teams for events. Trust me, you don't want to mess up lunch, especially on a day when everyone gets their own fancy grilled cheese from the food truck out front.

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.

Pros: One of the best things is that I can put as many dates as possible for people to pick dates that work with their schedules. I can also make it anonymous if I want to. You can even print of a spreadsheet that has all the information along with their emails. Great for planning events and getting a view of schedules.

Cons: Some things were hard to figure out as things were not stated as clear as I thought they should have been.

Overall: Great for scheduling purposes. Everyone I know uses this to plan events especially in the education realm.

Pros: It is a straight forward poll of times you are available to meet. Simply asks a question of time frames for all invitees to respond to. Essentially a time logistics software that allows the organizer to optimize the best time for a meeting. If the other poll takers are later they can easily help the process by only picking times already chosen.

Cons: Nothing really wrong with how this software works in my opinion. I guess it could be completely blind polling.

A great online event organizer, makes this work easy and fast!

Pros: Ideal for scheduling meetings between members of a team. It is no longer a headache to try to agree on a date and time to hold an event, this tool makes it easy since it allows us to design an online survey and distribute it among the guests or team members, who will indicate their availability so that Doodle at the end helps us choose the best option.

It gives us a perspective of how we should prioritize the different events or meetings.

Cons: I do not think it is convenient for the promoter or administrator of the survey to have the privilege of editing a participant's decision.

I do not think it advisable that every time someone of your opinion sends an email to update the survey, the ideal would be that I from my account access the survey and see the update.

Pros: Doodle Poll creates an easy-to-use space for people to suggest meeting dates and select times that work best for them. It streamlines scheduling for people with complex schedules. 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.

Pros: Doodle is extremely simple and basic, but that's all it really needs to be. Doodle is great when it comes to trying to find common availability between 5+ people. You create a poll, and send the link out. Then you can see everyone's selections all at once.

Cons: My only con is that when you're creating the poll, because the platform is so basic, you have to manually type in all of the times you wish to include in the poll for each day. I just wish there was a less tedious way to do that.

Pros: I really like Doodle. My group at church started using Doodle to help make it easier to schedule meetings. I like how you can just check the times you are available. Also one time I was in charge of planning a meeting and they showed me how to make a chart with the dates and times so that people could fill in when they are available. It was very easy to see when the best time to meet was. And it was easy to set up and use.

Cons: You have to check your email to fill in the times you are available. Not everybody in my group uses email all the time so we always have to remind them to go on their email.

Pros: Fellow committee members I serve with are graduate students, notoriously busy. They have schedules which don't operate in the typical 8-5 realm, and also blocks of calendar time (like exam time) which are completely off-limits. Doodle moves me away from having to send tons of emails (which I hate) to a place accessed by one easy link. It's so easy to set up times and dates which people can easily click on. The green for available and red for not available visualization makes it almost too easy to see when I can schedule a meeting. Amazing!

Cons: Honestly, I have not found a flaw in this software. It has saved so much time for me, and because it's so easy to send to multiple people at once, I know everyone is getting the same information.

Pros: Doodle is the only way to get my Board members together for a meeting in-person or by phone. It is so very easy to use, and reports back information as soon as a participant responds. I have also used it to schedule interviews, arrange appointments and coordinate with staff.

Cons: Limited functionality in free version makes the nominal price well worth it, but it would be great to have some additional services in the free version.

I'm currently in grad school and use Doodle weekly to schedule a variety of meetings and rehearsals.

Pros: The interface and optional date-range expansion make for easy use. The format also feels universal since it isn't attached to any specific software on someone's computer.

Cons: Hmmm, can't think of anything! Maybe there's a way Doodle could give an option to see everything in vertical columns instead of horizontal rows, although maybe that's already there and I just don't know about it.

I use this to determine best dates for multiple persons to attend a meeting.

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.

Pros: Doodle is great for finding the best date/time to schedule an event or let people sign up for various roles. The process to create a poll is intuitive, and the new interface is a lot more attractive and modern than the previous one. There are options to limit the number of votes per option (for example if you only need 3 people to volunteer for each day), and you can choose whether the participants can see each others' responses. You email the link to participants. I've sent it out to plenty of tech-phobic folks, and even they were able to figure it out without assistance.

Cons: Its functionality is a bit limited. Doodle is best for simple polls or scheduling, not in-depth surveys.

Pros: I recommend using this service quite often because I don't like a flurry of group emails going back and forth to decide when to have a meeting. With Doodle, it's so much easier to let everyone select available dates and then decide which day works.

Cons: The drawback is that the request can sometimes be hard to track and see responses, particularly if you don't create a sign-in (it's almost a must). The other drawback is that some people may be more reluctant to use this software over responding to an email so there could be a delay, if they are not expecting to receive the request in the first place.

Overall: Overall, I like Doodle for scheduling group meetings because it keeps me from tracking email responses in an already loaded inbox.

Pros: Answering the polls is easy as an end-user. You receive an email with link directly to the poll. Answer options are already available that you just check off and if your answer is NO or none of the above then there is an option at the bottom to click which will decline the available options. You just enter your name and poll responses. For the purposes that this is used, it is a simple way to gather whose available to work a project and then the administrators can select from respondents and way in which they answered with availability.

Cons: I have not found anything that I dislike about it at this point as an end user. I have not set up any polls or used it as an administrator.

Pros: Doodle makes it really easy to find a meeting or call time that works for people from different organizations where you can't automatically see availability. You can set up a large number of day & time options, see who is available when, and even see if someone *could* make a time but would prefer a different options. Makes finding a time slot that works for a lot of busy people much easier.

Cons: If you need to do different time options on multiple days, it becomes a lot more cumbersome to set up. If you have the same options on each day it's much easier.

Overall: We've used Doodle consistently to figure out what day and time work best for large meetings where you can't afford to leave someone out. Because Doodle allows everyone to choose what times work for them from the options you set up, it makes it very easy to see what times work best for everyone, or if you need to create more options to find a time that works.

Pros: What can I say, scheduling for meetings that used to take days to be finished with doodle it takes a day or so and hassle free. It's really swift and easy to create a time/date table for a meeting and you post it to the designated meeting members, they choose the suitable times, you choose the most common time or date and voila in a couple of hours you've got yourself a scheduled meeting.

Cons: Well I'd be greedy to ask for more since using the free version does all the work I need so nothing to dislike about that

Pros: Working on many different teams, and many different projects sometimes makes it a struggle to easily schedule meetings. Many teams at our university use Doodle to simplify their life and make scheduling a breeze.

Cons: I have occasionally thought the addition of more features may be beneficial, but truthfully the simplicity of it may be what makes it best.

Overall: Easy, free scheduling tool for your team.

Pros: Doodle is an easy way to organize a large group of people and plan timing of events such as meetings or group activities. It allows many choices to be provided to a large number of people so that organizers can see when the best time and day would be for the majority. It is easy to send out polls and easy to track responses. Many other useful features exist such as keeping polls anonymous, and setting deadlines (premium feature) for RSVP.

Cons: Free features are somewhat basic compared to the experience of premium members.

Overall: Makes scheduling any group event much easier.

Pros: Very easy to setup, enter in date and time options and email addresses and you are done! Results are easy to interpret quickly letting you see what date/time is optimal for the whole group without a ton of back and forth communications.

Cons: I have not had any issues! 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!

Overall: Eliminating wasteful communication and debates over timing and spending time analyzing multiple calendars to find good meeting dates. This makes it so simple!

Pros: It's free. It's very easy to setup. Very basic surveying tool. Presents results in an easy to read manner.

Cons: It is a little bulky to move around in at first. As a free customer, you are pretty limited to what you can and cannot do, unless you upgrade. For what I use it for, it wasn't worth an upgrade.

Overall: I will typically use a doodle poll when I am trying t find meeting times that will work for a large group. Even in this day in age, many people still do not use outlook as their primary calendar. Creating a doodle polls allows me to put forth meeting options, and then use the meeting time in which the largest majority of votes said works for them.

Pros: This product makes it so easy to set a meeting date and time for multiple individuals. I use it to schedule meetings within the office as well as it with colleagues from different institutions. We all have busy calendars and this saves on time of scouring through everyone's availability trying to find a time that works best for everyone. This is especially true for large groups.

Cons: It isn't the most mobile friendly. Especially if there are a lot of dates and times that the host is asking you to rank. It takes a while to scroll through and it can be difficult to see all the rows/columns on the phone.

Overall: Overall, I would highly recommend Doodle for those looking to set a meeting with a large group of people without the hassle! Easy to use!

Pros: I work with students, staff, and faculty. Unfortunately, we can't all communicate on the same servers for privacy issues. I use Doodle to schedule meetings with these constituents so we can all be on the same page. I'm able to send available times and get real-time updates on what is the best option for everyone, instead of a long email chain of suggestions that keep getting shot down.

Cons: When selecting the dates and times to put as options, the interface can be a little confusing. My first few times using it, I kept deleting my own selections. It auto fills the same times for every date you select, which isn't exactly conducive when scheduling meetings for multiple people where every day is different.

Pros: Doodle Pools are so helpful in scheduling meetings with multiple attendees. You can create your poll, provide several dates/times for your meeting and then see which option has the best response. It's so much easier than exchanging countless emails!

Cons: I have not had any challenges or issues using Doodle Polls so far - it seems easy for anyone to access since it's web-based and not platform specific.

Pros: It is easy to use, and I have found it the best way to schedule a meeting with users who are distant from each other and cannot check free/busy information on a network calendar. Simply select a set of dates and email the group. They then mark all dates and times that they are available, and the date with the most availability wins. Great tool.

Cons: Previous polls are not saved very long.

Pros: I don't know of any other software that lets you arrange meetings so easily. This has been a game-changer for my work teams and personal meetings. It is simple to use and does what it says it does.

Cons: The web interface is frustrating; like there's too much space and not enough of the content/calendar showing.

Overall: Doodle is an essential programme for my work teams and personal life, helping to organise calendars and schedule meetings that would otherwise have taken multiple emails. It has made life a lot simpler! The new web interface is an improvement, but could still be more intuitive with a clearer layout.

Pros: This is my go-to tool for scheduling times to meet with individuals with drastically different schedulers. Because I work with so many different freelancers with no way to connect calendars and very busy schedules, Doodle allows me to suggest many times and offers transparency while we're figuring out the best time.

Cons: Sometimes Doodle can be a little time consuming to use if you need to offer many different and very specific time slots. It works best for choosing a day and a vague time period, and then drilling into detail might have to happen somewhere else.

Overall: This has been the only way to get our whole board in one room. Doodle is the only tool for getting together many different professionals with very different schedules.

Pros: I appreciate that this tool is free and accessible, that it can be sent via email as a link or sent directly from the doodle website and that it now interfaces with outlook to consult one's calendar. There is an option to select ideal and available-but-not-ideal-times by utilizing different colors, which is helpful.

Cons: I like that you can consult Outlook, and I wish there were an option to "hold" the times you've selected as available with the Doodle poll that would automatically cancel when the Doodle administrator selected the time.

Pros: I like that the software lets you easily create a quick survey to find people's availability. I am part of a non-profit organization with busy board members. Doodle allows me to survey and find the most convenient times for meetings. It allows for multiple responses and you can quickly find which time and date work best. And the price is right! For simple tasks like we use it for, its free!

Cons: It would be nice to use it to survey other things. But there are other programs for that. I have no complaints. It is a good package

Cons: Really cannot complain. We use this at my current employer to schedule meetings that include internal and external attendees and all you need are email address. I is a sweet little piece of software.

Pros: What did we do before Doodle? It's wonderful to be able to easily schedule a meeting for a group.

Cons: It kills me that Doodle still hasn't developed a scheduler for a recurring meeting. By that, I mean that I don't want to schedule something for a particular day or week; I want to know what times the group has open in a typical week. I also dislike how long the scroll bar becomes when you have many times to choose from. It would make more sense to me to display that visually, in a week format, rather than linearly.

I also like how you can restrict the number of submissions to the poll and create a time limit for responses.

Cons: When there are multiple time slots to choose from on a poll, it can sometimes look clunky and be confusing. So my only con is related to a slight formatting issue with the software.
