Nice tool for scheduling conference calls and meetings

Used Monthly for 2+ years

Nice tool for finding the time that works for everyone (almost everyone).

Pros

Doodle is a pretty easy software to master. They did go through several software upgrades since I've been using it and these have definitely been for the better, even though it does take you some time to get used to the interface after a new update.
I use Doodle as a first step in my conference call scheduling. It allows you to create multiple time options and now it's linked directly to your time zone (vs. old version when it wasn't the case). Once your poll is created, the software generates a link that you can share with your audience. You get an email every time somebody enters their data in the poll.

Cons

When you need to revise the existing poll the software can be tricky if your poll already has some answers. In the past, the easiest way to handle this was to create a new poll to avoid confusion among the participants. I haven't edited my polls recently so hopefully this feature has also been improved.

Great Scheduling Tool

Used Weekly for 2+ years

Pros

Doodle is great for coordinating meeting times/dates and for voting when I'm trying to find time to connect with or plan for a group of people. It also has the ability to use detailed functions like only allowing people to choose 1 option, or not allowing the results to be view-able by everyone.

Cons

If you add too many choices in a single poll, it can be tough to look through all of the options, especially when trying to schedule a meeting/event, so be sure to only offer a few options to vote on.

Doodle helps me schedule meetings with committee members who have hectic schedules.

Used Monthly for 2+ years

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.

Best scheduling tool

I can't say enough about how much Doodle polls have helped in terms of scheduling with larger groups. I used to hate my job because of it, but not anymore--you just have to have the right tools.

Pros

I hate scheduling meetings with larger groups in my organization on my own, but Doodle polls for scheduling have simplified my life. I like that I can send he poll out and just settle on a date that works for the majority of my co-workers. Scheduling via email alone becomse a long back and forth of excuses from people why they can't make it. Doodle poll simplified it and now I can focus on more important emails.

Cons

I would say that sometimes the free version isn't as easy to use as the paid version. But the paid version is worth every penny since it saves time.
