Overall Satisfaction with Doodle

I use Doodle to book appointments and meetings with my clients and other members of the organization. We use it across the organization and spread the word about Doodle by sending meeting invites and availability polls to outside clients. This addresses the problem of planning meetings and appointments with large groups
  • Doodle allows you to sync Google Calendars with the availability options view to compare your availability with the times chosen.
  • I like that you can limit the number of votes per user so that if it's appointment booking, it's first come first served.
  • If I don't have contact information, I can ask for that in the poll with a premium. So great!
  • I would appreciate a more intuitive add-on within Google Calendar so we can schedule meetings directly in there.
  • I think missing functionality might be adding sliders, photos, and colors to the polls to make it look really beautiful.
  • I find the options on the poll settings are a bit confusing. It could be elaborated on more or have tooltips to explain the options better.
  • 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!
Doodle is far superior to Calendly. It's more intuitive, easier to log in and understand the interface, and has a dynamic dashboard where you can do everything yourself and see history. I selected Doodle because it isn't just a chrome extension. It has so much more to it than that. Go Doodle!
I gave this rating because I have never interacted with Customer Support, which makes me believe it is a superior product. I've been using it for 5+ years and never needing support is a good signal to the robust quality that is Doodle Poll. I also believe that Doodle could have excellent customer support by the way they implement updates to their portal.

Would you buy Doodle again?

Yes

Doodle is well suited for booking appointments and large meetings. I would say it could also be very valuable to gathering general availability and create a local calendar where users can compare availability in real-time. I would say it is less appropriate for surveying folks on the contact information (although this is available in premium), and scheduling meetings where a webinar or video conference link is required.
