Calendar subscriptions can be viewed in Doodle when creating a group poll. Leveraging your calendar subscriptions is helpful for:
ensuring all proposed times work for a certain individual
coordinating meeting times with multiple presenters
booking events on behalf of others
Using calendar subscriptions with Group Poll
Create a new group poll
Under the ‘Add your times’ section, open the ‘1 calendar shown’ menu under the 'Weekly' calendar view
Select the calendar subscription(s) you want to view within your group poll
The selected subscribed calendar(s) will now be visible
Now you can easily select times that work well for you and the owner of the subscribed calendar.
Good to know:
You must use the ‘Week’ view to see your calendar and/or your calendar subscriptions
Due to data privacy restrictions, Doodle can only show the date, time, and duration of the meetings already scheduled on subscribed calendars
The owners of the calendars to which you subscribe will not automatically receive an invitation to events that are booked with Doodle. As the Doodle account owner, you will need to invite the owner of the subscribed calendar(s) as a guest/attendee to the event for within the calendar invitation
To learn more about best practices for booking on behalf of others using Doodle, please watch our pre-recorded webinar.
You can subscribe to a calendar from your preferred calendar application such as Google Calendar, Microsoft 365, or iCloud calendar. Please note that you cannot establish a new calendar subscription from within your Doodle account.
