Try Doodle’s online voting system – easy to use
Online polls are quick and easy with Doodle. In just a few minutes you can create a poll for any occasion and then share it amongst your colleagues or friends. Once complete, you can easily view the results of your free online voting system to make any additions or edit your original content.
How do I create a Doodle poll?
First, you can start your Doodle poll by selecting ‘create a Doodle’ at the top of the page. With Doodle you can find the best for a meeting in minutes. During step one, include the name of the meeting, the location of the meeting, and any notes that are important for that meeting. We’ll use ‘Board meeting’ for this one. The location is ‘our offices’ and we added a little note, which would be to look over the agenda beforehand. For more tips on how to have great meetings take a look at Doodle Blog.
If you’d like to set up an opinion poll you can add the title of that poll here.
Second, you can add all the potential time options for your meeting. These are what your guests will vote on. Include several to ensure that our guests or participants can find the best time for their meeting. You can choose from the month view or the week view to do so. The week view will show you the entire week, and if you’ve connected your calendar to Doodle, you’ll be able to see your appointments right next to your time options to make sure you don’t double-book, or over-book yourself. If you choose the month view, you’ll be able to see an entire month for a wider perspective on date selection.
If you’re conducting an opinion poll you can add the different text options here. Be sure to select ‘text’ instead of ‘week’ or ‘month.’ Add as many options as you like for your participants to vote on. This is also a useful way to schedule recurring meetings, simply add options like ‘Tuesdays at 5’ or ‘Mondays at 12:00.’
Third, you start adding all kinds of great bonus features to your poll. Choose yes, no, if-need-be, limited options, or make it hidden to keep the answers anonymous. Here you can also see several Premium Doodle options such as poll deadlines and additional information requests.
Last, all you have to do is add your name and email address, so we can send you your admin link, and then send it off to your guests or participants. You can add their email addresses in the box on the poll page or you can simply share the link as you like. In minutes you’ll have your responses and have just used the Doodle online voting system. Pretty cool!
