In addition to selecting a supported browser, make sure you:

  • Enable JavaScript

  • Enable cookies in your preferred browser

Confirm your Doodle account settings

  1. Click the dropdown menu from the top right of your Doodle dashboard

  2. Select ‘Account settings’

  3. Select ‘Profile’

From Profile, check your language and default timezone settings to ensure they are indicated correctly. While you’re here, add a profile photo!
