Here at Pink Spaghetti we love to Doodle, but we don’t mean the day-dreaming through meetings kind, where swans and stars and swirls start to appear all over your notepad. Oh no, this kind of Doodling is all about making our lives simpler…which really sums up the Pink Spaghetti ethos.
In short – Doodle radically simplifies scheduling.
Perhaps you have to get a group of business people in a room at the same time for a meeting. Emails are sent out, phone calls are made, the date is decided, and then the last person you speak to can’t make that date, and you have to start all over again. Or maybe it’s your turn to arrange for a group of friends to go out for a meal, or for the family to meet up.
Doodle is designed to take away the pain and do most of the work for you – and it’s dead simple to use. In fact, we have even used Doodle to show menu options for everyone; MUCH better than wading through a dozen email replies and creating a spreadsheet!
Give it a go yourself:
1. Go to www.Doodle.com. Although you can pay for Premium Doodle, we find the free option gives us everything we need for every day. Choose to schedule an event. Give your event a title and a description if you want, enter your email address and click Next.
2. On the next screen, click on all the days you want to give as choices. Click Next and enter the time slots – you may want to just put one time for each day, or a number of time slots on one day.
There are a number of advanced settings that can be chosen, but if you just click on Next, you can either enter the email addresses you want to send the invitation to, or ask for a link and email it yourself.
As people fill in their availability with a simple tick box facility, you will be notified, and you can click the admin link at any time to see who has filled it in.
Let us know how you get on!
