What is Doodle?
Doodle.com is a website and an app that takes the pain out of finding the right date and time for a group of people to meet.
What does it do?
Doodle radically simplifies the process of scheduling events by using a voting process. Whether you want to arrange board or team meetings, dinners with friends, reunions, weekend trips or any other kind event, finding the perfect time is easy. All you have to do is send your colleagues a link to Doodle and ask them to select the dates and times they are available. You can then choose the date most popular with your attendees.
How does it benefit assistants?
PAs spend a huge amount of time scheduling and then rescheduling meetings for their organisations. This little website is a brilliant and easy way to make sure you get everyone together. I would suggest sending it to the other PAs in your organisation, so that you can use it between you rather than send it to the Executives. It is also great for parties, meeting up with busy friends and organising your personal life in general!
Why is it Practically Perfect PA tech of the week?
My super organised best friend, who is also an Assistant, just used Doodle for her Hen Do (bachelorette party) and it made the process so much easier to manage. I would recommend it for team away days and when organising meetings with other PAs outside of your organisation. It really does simplify the whole scheduling process.
