Doodle is an online scheduling tool that can be used quickly and easily to find a date and time to meet with multiple people. First you suggest dates and times for your event participants to choose from, then Doodle creates a polling calendar that can be sent to participants for feedback. As each participant selects the dates and times from the polling calendar that he or she is free, Doodle aggregates the responses and tells you which option works best for everyone.
Getting everyone on the same page is hard enough with just five other coworkers, let alone fifty new volunteers you may have never met. Doodle can be a valuable tool for coordinating a large event like volunteer training as well as a small event like a monthly meeting with the board.
Part of Doodle’s appeal is that it’s so easy to use. The site walks you through the four steps of creating a polling calendar:
Each step of the way there are options to make the whole process easier for you and the people you’re trying to meet with.
The first step in scheduling an event with Doodle is to fill out a simple form with the title, location, and description of the event. This information will be visible on the poll, letting participants know exactly what the event is. On this page you will also enter your name as administrator and your e-mail address so that you can receive the link to view, update, or edit the poll.
2. Propose Times
The next screen asks you to choose days and times that you are considering for the event.
In this third step, Doodle offers some options so that you can modify the basic poll to suit your specific needs. These customizable settings allow you to tailor your Doodle scheduling poll to each event. Among other things, you can use these different settings to transform your scheduling poll into a registration sheet, or to offer extra options to your event participants such as greater privacy.
The final step is to send out the invitations. Doodle has three methods of delivering your poll to participants: email, Facebook, and Twitter.
For smaller or internal meetings, email is the way to go. But if you are putting together a larger event, like a cookout to thank your volunteers, then a social media platform might be a better choice. By posting the Doodle poll link on Facebook or Twitter, you can simultaneously advertise your event and find a good day for it.
