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!"

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: 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 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.

Love it, use it daily!

Pros: Easy to create poll, less work on my end coordinating with a large group and their busy schedules. I can set up poll and choose the best date and time to schedule my meetings.

Cons: I sometimes miss or don't see new row that gets created when someone proposes another time/date for a meeting, i wish it was set up as an alert or at the beginning of the poll.

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.

Pros: The free version of this software is all you need. As a project manager that is constantly trying to schedule meetings with large teams this app cuts the need for constant email chains. I throw my dates and times, then pick the day/time that has the most votes easy. Gone are the days of endless emails and still not getting a good day.

Pros: There is a free basic version that has always covered my needs. It's so easy to use and distribute to others. This tool makes planning on event SOOO much easier. 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!

Overall: I love the free version and can see where is would be worth upgrading to the more advanced options depending on your business, needs and the number of groups and individuals your were working with.

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: 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: 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.

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

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.

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: 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 very easy and minimizes the pain of finding a mutually agreeable time to meet. They've refined the mobile apps recently so those work very well now, too. It's great to merge with your calendar and see when you actually are available to meet.

Cons: This indicates what a great service Doodle is, but my only criticism is their name. Doodle is such a frivolous and unserious name that it gives me pause using it in a professional setting. 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.

Cons: Honestly, I cannot think of any cons other than I wish everyone used it. Would be great to make it common place for scheduling meetings across company borders.

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: 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: 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

You can easily choose the final date and share that with everyone too.

Cons: I only use the free version of this software and can't think of anything negative about Doodle. Everyone that I've used it with has found it so easy!

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.

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

Pros: Doodle analyzes all people's responses and selects a common date and time for your meeting. We constantly use it in our office since we are a group of 45 people.

Cons: Haven't found any yet. I've been using doodle for several years now and where I work we rely on Doodle a lot.

Overall: Flawless meeting scheduler.

The best way to quickly coordinate a large group.

Pros: I've only used it as an individual on the free plan but it was a great way of coordinating get togethers with friends and sports groups to find the best day for training/events.

Cons: Can be a bit tricky to use and review entries when in large groups on mobile but this wasn't that restrictive.

Easiest way to organize and confirm dates for events.

Pros: To be able to coordinate events with friends and people around me in a fast and easy way, and the posibility to sync doodle with my calendar.

Cons: That you do not always know who voted, as people can put a false name under the option they have chosen.

Pros: Doodle allows users to schedule a time to meet in the easiest way. It shows each persons availability for a date/time frame. It's user friendly and simple.

Cons: There really isn't anything to not like, but Doodle should allow for input of a range of dates for leisure and business trip planning.

Pros: Doodle is easy to use for me when setting up a call and easy for the folks who need to respond to the meeting request.

Cons: There is nothing that I don't like about it. It makes it easy to see a wining date and time. It would be nice to offer folks the ability to suggest "another time".

Pros: We love Doodle for coordinating events and meetings around the office. It's so much easier to do it this way than trying to get everyone's schedules!

Cons: It's quite manual so if you have a large team that you are adding and lots of date options, it can become a bit of a task to do so.

Pros: The website has a very simple interface that anyone can navigate, even if they have never seen Doodle before. No subscription required. The Android app is also easy to use.

Cons: The interface is a bit old-fashioned, not very streamlined or professional. I might be willing to pay for a version that would allow me to brand to my company, similar to ShareFile.

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

Pros: Easy way to set up meetings with a large group

Cons: If you have different time that you are available for each day, the software become cumbersome. Plus adding in every variation of a time block that you are free is annoying I feel like the software should do that on its own.

Pros: It's free and easy to use! You only need to sign up to start using it. It does help to coordinate meetings between people. We personally use it to coordinate job interviews and worked perfectly.

Cons: It does what it says, so it solves the problem you have. Probably they could improve a little but their design but maybe it's me being picky.

Overall: It helps you coordinate with people without having to go back and forth with emails. Simple.

Pros: What I like most about the software is that it is easy to use. Setting it up was easy. Also I appreciate the simplicity of the share function.

Cons: What I liked least about the software is that when I signed up for it I was under the impression it would make scheduling easier among a group. It actually only lets you choose a date for an event - not a time. I found that unhelpful.

Overall: I was able to pin down which date worked best for a training I was holding. I was able to easily share my available dates with the team and when they replied, it was very clear visually which date worked best for everyone.

Pros: This can be used for multiple activities, meetings, events, and general polling for preferences. This is particularly useful when we're in different departments across a campus with varying availability.

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.

Overall: 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: Setup and administration is easy to understand. Does not take much time to get a quick doodle for any situation to find a perfect date.

Cons: They took out the function to select between options, the whole doodle is only focussing on dates. Before we used it to find also conclusions for a team day and what to do, now we have to use another tool therefor.
