Have you ever tried to schedule a meeting with a group of people? It can take a lot of e-mails or phone calls to see a consensus forming, and then one person’s response can scuttle the whole endeavor and send you back to square one. Here’s a better alternative.
Doodle® is a free website that enables you to set up possible dates and times for an event and then send it to a list of e-mail addresses. Each of your attendees goes to your poll and indicates his or availability for the time slots you listed. Check back a day or two later, and you’ll be able to see everyone’s availability laid out in one place. Invitees can also add comments. If you like, you can have Doodle e-mail you each time somebody answers the poll.
You can also use Doodle® to take polls on other things besides schedules. Use it to decide on a movie, take a vote on a question, or select toppings for pizza!
Try it out and see how easy it is.
