Head-to-head: Doodle vs. When2Meet

User interface and ease of use: Doodle’s dashboard is intuitive and user-friendly, making scheduling a seamless experience. While When2Meet is user-friendly, it might be missing a few features that make event scheduling easy.

Advanced features and customization: Doodle shines in this aspect, offering a range of tools that cater to various scheduling needs. From Booking Page, which allows people to set their availability and arrange meetings with a simple link, to 1:1 for one-on-one meetings. Doodle also provides extensive customization options. When2Meet, although effective for basic availability polling, falls short in terms of advanced features.

Collaborative features for group scheduling: Doodle enables participants to see each other's responses (if the organizer wants them to) to facilitate collaborative decision-making. When2Meet, while suitable for quickly finding a time, it lacks the ability to link video conferencing or shared an agenda - something you can do with Doodle.

Mobile access and app integration: Doodle's mobile app ensures you can schedule and manage appointments on the go, regardless of your location. With seamless app integration, it syncs effortlessly with your favorite productivity tools, enhancing your scheduling capabilities. While When2Meet offers a mobile-responsive website, it lacks a dedicated app for enhanced mobile access.

What is When2Meet?

When2Meet is a well-known scheduling tool designed to find common availability among a group. 

Its simple interface allows users to create event polls, share them with participants and gather responses. When2Meet streamlines the process by displaying color-coded time slots based on participants' availability.


Introducing Doodle

Doodle has gained immense popularity as a comprehensive scheduling solution that goes beyond basic availability polls. 

It offers advanced features that make it easy to automate your calendar and reclaim your day. 

With Doodle Group Polls, you can propose multiple meeting dates, send it to your guests and, within minutes, you’ll find a perfect time to meet. 

Booking Page automates your availability by letting you set when you’re available. Then, when someone asks to meet, you simply send a link and the times you’re free are shown. You stay in control of what people can book and links to your calendar so you’ll never be doubled-booked.

1:1 makes it easy to meet with one other person - perfect for interviews and employee reviews. Like Group Poll, send the times your free to your invitee and when they pick a time it appears on both your calendars. Simple.

Doodle also integrates with popular calendars, such as Google Calendar, enables automatic reminders and allows you to brand your invites with your own logo and colors.

It provides a holistic approach to scheduling, ensuring maximum efficiency in every aspect.
