Updated this week

You have been invited to a Doodle group poll and would like to know how to participate? We'll show you how!

Check out the video below, or keep reading for a step-by-step guide.

Before you vote in the group poll

If you have a Doodle account, make sure to log in at the top right corner. You do not need to have a Doodle account to participate, but you will have to enter your name and email after voting so that the organizer of the poll knows who you are.

Get to know your group poll participation screen

  1. In the participation view, you'll see all the meeting information on the left side of the screen. Here you can see who created the poll, where it'll take place, a meeting description, and who else is invited to the poll.

  2. With Group Poll, you can vote on each proposed date and time in three ways:

    1. YES - click one time on the box for this slot

    2. IF-NEED-BE - click two times on the box for this slot

    3. NO - leave the box empty for this slot

  3. Logged in Doodle users can select which connected or shared calendars are scanned for conflicting events. That way, you can make sure not to select options where you are already busy or booked.

  4. Use these arrows to see all proposed dates and times whenever the event organizer proposes more than five options.

  5. Tick the box beneath each date and time to indicate your availability. Refer to the instructions in Item 2 to indicate your vote.

  6. If you'd like to decline the entire group poll, you can either choose not to vote for anything or click "decline". If you click "decline" you will still appear in the poll as a participant that voted "NO" for all time slots.

After you indicate your votes in for each proposed date and time, click 'Continue'.

Finish submitting your group poll response

After selecting your preferred times or declining the group poll, you will need to provide your name and email to the event organizer.

  • Logged in Doodle users will have this information automatically added to their response

  • Group poll participants do not need a Doodle account to participate. Click on 'Continue as a guest' to vote without opening a Doodle account. Click on 'Create an account' to submit your vote and open your own Doodle account. Click here to learn more about how Doodle can help you with pain-free scheduling.
