Doodle simplifies scheduling

Doodle Your Way to Easy Scheduling

With Doodle, you can easily schedule meetings with co-workers without having to send countless emails and phone calls back and forth. There is no need to play scheduling ping-pong between several different individuals and meeting times.

Doodle allows you to send one poll through the Internet and have participants indicate their specific availability. This allows you to schedule your meeting quickly and easily. Doodle can speed up the process of picking a date and time by easily showing you what time and date is most popular … all for free.

I first found out about Doodle last year while working at Oakland University as a Resident Assistant. My supervisor used it to help us schedule a staff meeting, and ever since then I have been utilizing Doodle to schedule events of all kinds!

Schedule your event in three easy steps

  • Step 1: Propose a poll
    Pick the dates and times that you would like to try and schedule an event.

  • Step 2: Invite participants
    Send invitations to the people attending your event.

  • Step 3: Confirm your date and time
    Doodle shows you and the participants which time and date is most popular so you can have everyone in attendance at your event.

If you’re trying to find a convenient time to meet several people try a simple scheduling app like Doodle.

Doodle Mobile

Doodle Mobile gives you the ability to schedule events from anywhere. You can respond to a meeting poll, propose a poll or even check up on a current poll all using your mobile device. Doodle Mobile is even available across time zones, to help make international scheduling easier as well.

Simplify scheduling even further by creating a MeetMe profile to allow others to view your schedule online to schedule events. (doodle.com/meetme)) This way you can show them when you are free, and how you want to be contacted.

Premium Doodle

With Premium Doodle, you can customize your polls with your brand for a professional feel.

Synchronize with your calendar with Doodle which is compatible with Google, Exchange, Outlook, LotusNotes, and iCal. This will allow you to easily propose a poll without having to go back and forth from your calendar to Doodle. You can send automatic reminders for your poll participants, see who hasn’t responded yet, and much more. All for a varied increased price based on which category better fits your needs.

Appointlet: Easy Automated Scheduling

Appointlet allows you to basically have a personal assistant in the cloud. If your business requires you to make appointments with customers or clients, you can simply have Appointlet take care of all the scheduling for you to avoid the back and forth emails and phone calls to set up an appointment.

  1. Syncs with your Google Calendar
    With seamless Google Calendar integration, appointment reminders for your customers, and a payment method, a personal assistant is waiting for you in the cloud.

  4. Work Efficiency as a Team
    If you have more than one staff member, you can easily add all their calendars. Just add your staff, link their calendars, and you are ready to schedule appointments for multiple staff members. Your staff members could even get their own link to accept the bookings independently.

  5. Manage Your Appointments
    Accept, re-schedule, and cancel appointments all within the familiar Google Calendar that I personally love. Appointlet has a feature over top of the calendar that makes viewing your schedule easy.

  6. Receive Money at the Right Time

    If you have customers who speak another language than English, no problem! Appointlet is available in Spanish, French, German, and more to help you reach a larger audience.

  10. Business with Anyone, Anywhere
    Appointlet makes it easy to communicate with international customers. Utilize this scheduling software to avoid scheduling an appointment when your out of the office, because Appointlet translates the time zones for you. Plus, you do not need to worry about being awake to do business as it can get done while one side of the scheduling is fast asleep.

  11. Help is Just a Phone (or Skype) Call Away
    If you ever need to master the advanced features more quickly, or want to receive help with a certain issue, you can easily get help from the Appointlet team.

  1. Hey,

    I’m Rami, co-founder of Appointlet. Thank you so much for the review! 🙂

    We do currently use Appointlet for our business to schedule Help & Support calls with customers & prospects. The great thing for us about Appointlet is that we never have to think about timezones. Considering the fact that we’re booking with people from all over the world, that is a big win for us.

    Furthermore, we’re also using our Zapier integration to sync all new bookings to our Streak CRM. This makes it easy to then follow-up and keep a record of customers info.

    I’d gladly answer any questions that anyone might have.

    Thanks,
    Rami
