Use Doodle For Easy Group Scheduling

2014_07_28_MPPdoodle

Lots of offices have calendar scheduling systems in place, like Outlook, Google, or Lotus Notes. If you want to schedule a meeting, you can add your list of invitees and see when they’re all available to schedule it. It’s an easy process.

What’s not so easy is when you need to schedule a meeting for a group of people who aren’t on a unified calendar scheduling app.

You know what happens next: The emails start flying around with everyone listing dates they’re available, and dates they’re not. It’s nearly impossible for everyone to wade through each other’s typed-out schedules to find a single date and time when everyone is free—and by the time you find it, one of the guests has suddenly become unavailable again.

In this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll show you a website that can help with this process.

It’s called Doodle, and it sends an email to anyone you want, polling their availability. I’ll show you how it works, and how it’s great for non-profits, bandmates, even business meetings between companies.

Watch this week’s free video and come back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers.
