Pros: It's simple to use and it includes the client so there are no miscommunications. The ability for a client to feedback directly to a whole team saves a lot of time and miss understandings.

Cons: It can be difficult to get used to having clients input, your team have to be aware of when they comment publicly and when it's set to private for the team.

Overall: It's saved me so much time. Working with clients can be challenging at times, this tool makes even the most challenging of clients easy to work with. Everything is documented and they have a clear view of what's happening so I'm not spending a portion of my day or evening sending update emails on what's happened throughout the day!

Recommendations to other buyers: It's worth giving a go, I was sceptical about sharing the responsibility of the client amongst my team but they really embraced it and actually we all had more time to work towards a common creative goal without time spent sending so many messages.

Pros: Simple to setup and get going almost instantly. Love being able to have clients request features and we can then quote on the fly and have it all approved within the app.

Cons: Had a few issues with Chrome plugin at first, but was fixed quickly. UX was a bit clunky at first and wasn't a smooth user experience, but this has since been updated and is much more user friendly.

Overall: Easier interactions with clients - feature requests were easier to quote and implement alongside recording time spent working on it.

Pros: Doddle is a great task management system, but I particularly like the continuous timer which has meant I haven't missed a time log - it's the most accurate I've ever been with keeping a timesheet!

Cons: It is occasionally a little slow to load one of my projects as I have a lot of tasks. I have spoken to the chat support and they couldn't be more helpful about it though.

Overall: Clients were finally accountable to pay for the actual time their changes took not how long they think it should have taken!

Pros: I like the way Doodle interacts with various external calendaring systems. I also enjoy the way users are able to create and manage Doodle polls within a client application. Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, Microsoft Outlook and Apple iCal are all options to fully utilize Doodle to track dates.

Cons: I don't really care for for Google Maps or the fact that it shares the locations of events. Some events are private.

Overall: The integration with many familiar apps.

Pros: Easy for the whole office to use and keeps tasks in one place for us all to see what is being worked on and when it will be done.

Cons: Nothing apart from the name change we used to use it back when it was called Skwish I prefer that name to Doddle although Im the only one in the office that does!

Everything you need in project management including recording time spent really effectively.

Pros: It's super simple to use. No one has the time to devout hours to learning complicated new software - we all want to hit the ground running, so the intuitive nature of this suited us well.

Cons: Well, if only it would automatically boil the kettle and make the tea for our breaks! Apart from the impossible, we're very happy with it :D

Overall: Efficiency, time saving, ease - all good things for a busy office!

Pros: We can manage multiple projects at the same time which reduces the efforts to handle multiple projects. And it also allows you to track projects workflow task wise.

Cons: Limited access to free users and if you want full features of it then you have to purchase there plans as per your need.

Overall: It allows me to handle multiple projects at the same time. And i'm able to track each and every tasks regarding my projects.

Really slick, simple interface that took just seconds to get used to.

Pros: The way it allows you to do almost anything through versatility, rather than by forcing you to use specific tools. Amazing support from the developers who were responsive and answered my questions really quickly and effectively.

Cons: Nothing, it has so far delivered everything. I'd love the ability to use a colour scheme that represents my corporate colours.

Overall: Full and complete control over my marketing team's efforts. It keeps my plans clear and simple.

It's been a fantastic tool. I can't believe I only just found this!

Pros: Clients are always trying to slip in extra work for free. This tool helped me to keep track of each request on a project and charge for it accordingly.

Cons: I didn't find it sooner! It's hard to find something not to like about this tool, it works in a way that helps you to customise it to the way you work. Whether that's quoting per piece or by a whole project.

Overall: I was able to bill my clients for a lot more. Once i had proof they were sneaking in additional work there was a simple way to justify charging for each request.

Pros: Doodle is important for many reasons, however the biggest being able to ask your team various questions via polls WITHOUT the need to send e-mails back and forth with multiple people.

Cons: I find the overall experience to be a bit too "cute" in its graphic design. It reminds me of something you'd see in your highschool computer class.

Overall: All in all, Doodle is a very handy tool, especially if you need to communicate with a team on a constant basis and would like to cut down on e-mailing, which can become overwhelming, to say the least. 8/10.

Very good, easy and simple to use.

Pros: The simplicity at which it's responds. The usability of it too. Everything seems to fall into place without much effort from me.

Cons: I'm not sure the whole thing is so easy and intuitive. I think sometimes whilst useable it can be slow.

Overall: Everything helped me when I was struggling to do it on my own.

Pros: How easy it is to use and to get my customers to use.

Cons: The fact it's quite unknown at the moment - puts some of my customers off as they haven't heard of it. That will change i'm sure.

Overall: I've always had trouble getting clients to show/tell me exactly what issue they have with a website/page. The Pinning tool allows the client to pin the webpage, make a notation and hit send and its with me so easy and my client actually commented on how easy it was.

Doddle is pretty great.

Pros: I used the old Google extension, but this new update/rebranded service project management system does more than I knew I needed.

Cons: I love that you can invoice directly l, but I'd love it if we can get USD invoicing. The interface for mobile is a bit awkward, with the overlay, but easy enough to get used to.

Overall: I can track projects, tasks, and invoice all in one place.

I'm a fan of this!

Pros: I can get my projects organized. The invoicing works flawlessly. It's an overall solid project management tool. The interface is slick and easy.

Cons: I'm a fan really. It's hard to find a lot wrong with it. If I had to pick something, it would be that u would prefer being able to customize the color scheme.

Overall: It just works for the way I work

Pros: I love that I can take a census from a large group of people while still keeping inbox zero and I can work with a ton of different teams at once.

Cons: It can be a little clunky when offering more than a few times or dates. If I want to offer 3 different times over several days it can be hard to see all of that information.

Wonderful, simple solution to an age old problem.

Pros: Really easy to use product. Compared to some of the other similar polling products we've tested in the past, Doodle was easy to get up and running.

Cons: Not a lot of complaints, biggest issue was just convincing our guys to try out a new product. Once we ran a few campaigns everybody seemed to be on board, but like with any new SaaS product there is always a learning curve.

Surprisingly easy to use!

Pros: Pretty, straightforward, natural, and intuitive. I wish every scheduling experience was like doddle! Was hesitant to learn yet another tool again but this one barely had any learning curve

Cons: Not really crazy about the colors...maybe there's a theming option? Also don't know how well it'd work for larger teams

Overall: No nonsense project management and billing
