How much time do you spend trying to coordinate schedules for meetings? If it’s more than five minutes each, it’s too much. Doodle is a free scheduling tool that allows you to choose a series of dates and times for a meeting or event and turns it into an electronic poll that can be emailed to recipients who simply indicate their availability at those time. This way, you can best determine when to hold a meeting or call to have all necessary participants present. An added bonus of this tool is a positive ‘peer pressure’ effect. Individuals can see the other responses to the poll, making them more likely to respond affirmatively if they see that everyone else can attend at a certain time. Check it out at www.doodle.com.
