Calendly

Calendly works very well with tech-savvy people who understand modern tools and aren't afraid to use them. Whenever I want someone to book some time to meet I can simply share my Calendly link and this way we can avoid an extra call to coordinate agendas.It works especially well for people with busy agendas that usually struggle when they have to book time, even if it's 30 minutes.

Doodle

Doodle is an excellent tool for those who have employees at remote locations who must be trained or onboarded. It saves cost for the organization because the videos you create can be uploaded to a website, a company portal/intranet, etc. It is a great tool for beginners because it is so intuitive. I am not that tech-savvy so I was a bit hesitant to create my first video but once I got started it was incredibly user friendly and I can't wait to create my second video. I believe it will only get better so my belief is that Doodle can be a great tool for advanced designers as well. It is also fun to use for inspirational/motivational videos to send to employees for a morale boost. Use it for games and employee team-building activities.

Pros

Calendly

  • Calendly syncs instantly with my Google calendar. So not only do I automatically know when I have new appointments scheduled, but if I input a different event onto my google calendar Calendly knows that I'm not available at that time.
  • The direct link that allows people to schedule a time slot with me is great. It makes scheduling simple and painless, and make sit easy for me to create a clickable CTA.
  • I love that I can collect payments through the platforms either via Stripe or PayPal. both of which I use. It makes the platform more "all-in-one" and makes for a seamless experience.

Doodle

  • Doodle allows you to view multiple meeting times simultaneously. I may never have 100% of my team available, but I can see that I have three other options with 90% availability.
  • Doodle is a free resource that doesn't require users to create an account or exist in a network. I simply send the link and see the responses.
  • Doodle notifies you as people respond, making the scheduling process quick and easy. Also, you can confirm a time through the software!

Cons

Calendly

  • From a design perspective, it would be nice to customize the look of their pages to match the admin's brand more.
  • If you have open time slots in your calendar, it looks at sessions based on the hour and half hour rather than 15 minute increments. For example, if I was booked from 1:30-2 and 3-4 and asked to put a 15 minute cushion between meetings, 2:15-2:45 wouldn't show up in my scheduler however it would be a time that would work for me.
  • I wish they had a bit more conditional logic built in when booking a time.

Doodle

  • To my knowledge, there is no ability to allow the user to directly schedule a time. Would be nice if it were flexible both ways but I've come to realize that I just have to use different services depending on how it matches my workflow
  • The design isn't terrible but most scheduling software has much better design
  • It's generally simple but there have been times where the UX has been a bit confusing and I didn't really know what was going on

As a small shop operation, I can work as though I have a bigger team. I can be responsive to the needs of my customers with regard to scheduling and the integrations with other application makes all the difference. The mobile app is also easy to use and versatile. For a business that is based on scheduled appointments, this is the go-to app for any company.

I only reached out to Support once but they were very prompt and easy to work with. I had some questions about setting up the follow-up emails for after people would do the interview. They were very helpful and gave assistance and we solved the issue very fast. I would definitely recommend.

Doodle has customer service support available as needed, but honestly, it is so easy to use that I have rarely had to seek support. They are always a click away and responsive to resolving any need or to clarify the next best step to using Doodle to meet my needs.

Alternatives Considered

Calendly

Calendly was easier to get in and setup than acuity. While acuity is probably excellent, it did involve more set up when we initially tested it out. The free version of Calendly seems to be a complete product without bringing to light that one hasn't subscribed yet. Actuity is available free for 1 year if you sign up through SquareSpace I've noticed.

Doodle

I use Sign-Up Genius to list my open appointments and let students sign up for individual spots; I use the anonymous option so that only I can see the name and to others it simply appears as "already filled". Doodle is simpler in some ways that Sign-Up Genius, but Doodle's biggest advantage is the ability for individuals to indicate multiple options.

Return on Investment

Calendly

  • Calendly has positively affected our customer success management, making us more efficient. We would be spending a lot of time on trying to figure out our team members' calendars and customers' calendars schedules to determine meeting times that work for everyone if we didn't have access to Calendly. Oftentimes our customers will be in several different locations all over the globe but all need the same meeting, so it really chops down on the 'back-and-forth' of emails by providing them meeting scheduler links they can use on their own.
  • Calendly has also helped us eliminate extra time fleshing out details that are usually needed before meetings occur by providing ways to ask those questions when the event is scheduled. We really appreciate having this information prior to the meeting, and it makes it easier for our customers by automating the process.

Doodle

  • We have saved massive amounts of time using Doodle (both in going back and forth with emails and the ease of use)
  • Doodle has provided us a fast and effective pathway for gathering meeting availability.
  • Doodle keeps my Google Calendar in-view, so I'm not double-booking - again a success!
