Doodle was the first tool I used to automate the meeting organization process. It's a great time saver that saves you from playing email tag with those you wish to organize meetings with.

Pros

I love that with Doodle I can integrate it with my Apple Calendar and select slots for organizing meeting times and share the link to attendees to select their respective preferred slots, using the Group Poll feature.

It's also totally transparent as everyone can see, what slots the others have selected.

Cons

Need Pro version to integrate with Zoom.

Doodle for Team Management

Overall, I love using Doodle, and I have recommended it to many colleagues who need help with team management.

Pros

I like that Doodle allows for you to coordinate the date and time of a meeting for multiple people. As I manage various teams, it is a very valuable tool. Using Doodle maximizes efficiency when you need to find a common meeting time for large groups. When inviting individuals to participate in the Doodle poll, you can send messages from the program after adding contact information. You can also send reminders in the same way. The program will tell you which dates work best for participants and then, once you select the date that works best for everyone, you can "book it" which means the date will be solidified and participants will be notified of the finalized date and time.

Cons

I like that Zoom can be integrated, but when I have used it in the past, sometimes this feature glitches. I wish this could be addressed. I also wish there was a way for participants to add why they may not be available for a certain date (for example: already have another meeting vs. my day is just busier and I could try to make it fit). There is a "if need be" option that individuals can choose for this type of situation, but there could be more explanation of it for new participants.

Doodle might not be the best but it's saved us lots of time

Reviewed on 06/09/2022

I appreciate its function, and hope it improves.

I appreciate its function, and hope it improves.

Pros

There are probably better products out there, yet I don't know what they are, and since I know how to use Doodle, I stick with it. It's what everyone seems to do, and for the most part, it works. I wish it worked a little better, such as the ability to highlight rather than have to physically click the box for each time slot. Still, it's saved my team lots of time that would have been required to schedule a meeting!

Cons

Poor display when there are a lot of options, which means seemingly infinite scrolling, and did I mention so much clicking?

The overall experience with Doodle that I currently have is very very good. I prefer to say very excellent

Pros

Doodle is honestly one of the best tools I've found to help me manage my work tasks. I use it to schedule meetings with my team, which keeps me on the same page. It's a huge time saver for me, and for my staff on the other end. The scheduling service is quick and easy to use. The site offers a number of free features that make it easy to schedule meetings. The free features are available to anyone, but there are also paid features that give you more control over scheduling and offer additional features

Cons

So far, the shortcoming I've noticed is that the software doesn't have features to make sure that each participant votes only once

Reasons for Switching to Doodle

That's because this software gets a lot of good press in the world of my business in general and in the academic world in particular. By using it, I confirm this good image. This software helps me greatly in my daily tasks.

In my organization, we often need to coordinate meetings between our employees and outside stake-holders, many of whom are not used to corporate environments or don't keep detailed, up to date calendars. Doodle allows us to find common ground between people who live by their calendars, and those who have more flexibility.

Pros

Doodle provides quick and easy scheduling for people across platforms, organizations, and time-zones. I find it particularly effective for planning 1-off meetings for folks with full schedules.

Cons

While the pro features of Doodle are excellent, I don't appreciate the way that Doodle has made the free version of the platform hard to access, and the way the paid features become the default.
