Often it’s the seemingly-easy tasks that take up disproportionate amounts of time; for an example of this, you can look no further than trying to schedule a meeting with a multitude of people. Thankfully, there’s Doodle to change all the hassle of that; an easy-to-use and time-saving tool that makes us wonder how we ever got by without it. Best of all, it’s free (and you don’t even need to make an account)!


To get started, simply click on the blue button “Schedule an event” on the homepage, as seen above.

From there, it’s a short step-by-step process as you enter information about your meeting and location. You select possible dates and times, and then can either enter in the attendees’ emails directly, or just copy and paste and send them the link to your poll. Your attendees can then go to the poll and select the times they are available.

Once everyone has responded, the result will look something like this:


As you can see, the results make it easy to tell when everyone is available, and Doodle will go as far as to identify the best time(s) for everyone to be in attendance.

Simple – easy – and no more back-and-forth! Give it a try if you haven’t already.

    I read your online column with interest each week.
    Informative, light and at times funny.
    I will share this “doodle” information with the lawyers here in Sudbury.
