How to use the best free online calendars with Doodle
Doodle is also a great choice for users who already use calendar software to organize their business or personal life. You can use different calendar applications with Doodle such as Google Calendars, Office 365, Outlook and iCal. They integrate seamlessly for increased productivity and greater transparency when trying to organize meetings.
Once you sign up for a free account you can connect your calendar in your account settings. Choose ‘account’ from the dropdown menu at the top right of the page and then select ‘calendars.’ You’ll see your options for calendar connection in the image below. Just choose one of the options and then add your details to sign into your account. If you don’t use Google or Microsoft you can add another calendar via ICS feed.
Connecting your calendar is the way to get the most out of your Doodle account. You can simultaneously view all your connected calendars while both creating Doodle polls and participating in them. This cuts down on the hassle of toggling back and forth between applications.
With Doodle’s calendar connection feature, everything is in one place, giving you clarity and ease when organizing your schedule.
