Making a web survey on Doodle.com

Since it was founded in 2007, Doodle.com has been helping people arrange times to meet-up. Whether it be with colleagues, friends or people that you are yet to meet, by creating a Doodle poll you can send out suggested times for the event or meeting, and wait for your invitees to respond with their available time.

What isn’t so well known is that Doodle also offers you the option to create an online web survey. This allows you to find out answers and preferences to a whole range of questions, over and beyond when people have available time. When it comes to event planning, you can create a Doodle web survey to find out where people want to hold the event or what they want to do. Of course, the web based survey doesn’t have to be about scheduling an event, it could be about something completely different. You can use the web survey software to decide upon a group present for someone, or to select the next novel for your book club. In fact, Doodle can help you ask any question in the world.
