Stop Scheduling Via Email – Try Doodle

When you’re trying to get a group of busy people together, it’s often very complicated to determine the best day and time for the meeting. If you’ve ever endured an 18-message email chain among a dozen people just to set one meeting, you know what I mean.

I just finished using Doodle for the first time to schedule a group meeting, and it turned out to be a great solution. Doodle is a freemium, ad-supported service that lets you poll meeting participants about potential dates and times, then allows you to select the date that works for the most (or most essential) people.

Here’s a sample screenshot:

Polls can be embedded in web pages, finalized meetings can be exported in .ics (iCal) format, and there are other features that you can explore if you’re interested.

This isn’t a sponsored post or affiliate link; I just think Doodle is an elegant solution to a very common problem in the professional world.
