Use Doodle’s survey software to schedule your meetings – a guide
One of the many advantages of Doodle is the simple interface that allows your participants to independently choose the dates and times they are available f0r the meeting. In minutes you’ll have your first poll created, and you’ll have your first meeting scheduled.
First, start your 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. For this example, we’ll use ‘Board meeting.’ The location is ‘our offices’ and we’ll also add a little note.
Second, you add the time options for your meeting. Your participants will choose from these options. We recommend selecting a few options to ensure a higher likelihood of finding the best time for everyone to meet. 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’ve connected your calendar you’ll be able to see your current appointments in the week view so you’ll never double-book or over-book yourself.
Third, add advanced settings to your poll. You can limit the number of votes per participant, make the poll hidden to keep your attendees anonymous 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.
Lastly, finish up the poll and send it out to your participants. All they have to do is open your link, choose the time or times that suit their schedules. In minutes you’ve found the best time for everyone. Get started today!
