Find the best time to meet (and more) with Doodle’s polling website – step by step
Whether you choose to use Doodle for quick polls to find the best time for a meeting, or you take advantage of Premium Doodle’s more advanced features, scheduling couldn’t be easier. It’s as simple as adding the potential time options to your poll, sending it out to your participants, and then choosing the best time for your meeting. In seconds you’ll have found the best time for a meeting that might otherwise have taken you ages to schedule. Doodle is also a great way to create polls to gather opinions on anything you like. Let’s look at an example to see how easy it is to set up your first Doodle poll.
You can start your first Doodle poll by choosing ‘create a Doodle’ at the top of the page. On the first step include the name of the meeting you’d like to have, the location of the meeting, and any notes you like. Since Doodle is primarily a scheduling tool, we’ll use ‘Board meeting’ for this example. The location is ‘our offices’ and we’ll also add a little note.
During the second step, you can add potential time options for your meeting. That’s what your participants will vote on. Choose a few options to ensure a higher likelihood of finding the best time for everyone to meet. You can choose the month view to see all the days of the month and then add the times on the right. If you choose week view you can add the time slots directly to the calendar.
If you’d like to gather opinions with a more classical survey format, simply choose ‘text’ from the options below the header.
In step 3, you can add all kinds of advanced settings to your poll. For example, you can limit the number of votes per participant, make the poll hidden to hide the information of your attendees or add a third ‘if-need-be’ option for more flexibility. If you upgrade to a Premium account you can add deadlines to get your votes in even faster, and require contact details so you can get back in touch with your participants after your meeting.
Now just finish up your poll and send it out to your participants. You’ll be able to see everyone’s votes in a handy grid. Once everyone has voted you can close the poll to confirm the date! Get started today!
