Doodle app: Create polls

Download the app

Get the Doodle app from the App store or the Google play store.

When you have installed the app, click on it to log in if you already have a Doodle account. If it is your first time using Doodle, sign up with your email address, Google or Facebook. You have to activate it through the activation email that will land in your email inbox.

All your created polls are saved on your account, so once you download and sign into your account in the app on a different device, all your existing polls will be available.

Please note that the app uses the language and time zone set for your device. If you want to change the language or the time zone in the app, you need to change the language or time zone in your device settings. 

Personal dashboard

Once you are logged in you will see your personal dashboard. Any polls you have created from your Doodle account, or polls you have participated in from your Doodle account, will be shown here. Please note that Doodle 1:1 polls and Bookable calendars are not supported in the apps. 

Create your own poll

With Doodle you can create polls asking others for their availability. Open the app and tap the blue plus in the middle of the screen. 

Choose "Schedule an event" if you want to propose date and time options. Or swipe to the left once in order to create a text poll. Using text polls allows you to enter any option in form of text if you would like to propose other options instead of dates and times.

Please note that for the moment, Doodle 1:1 and Bookable calendar are NOT supported in the app. 

Step by step 

1) Create a poll by clicking the blue plus in the middle of the screen 

2) Select the dates and tap add times to add some time slots, if needed. Tap within the date range to create a time slot. You can hold and drag the white circle to extend the time. Tap it once again if you would like to delete it or copy it to all of the other dates.

3) Include a title (mandatory), event location and a description (optional). Special poll settings are great for polls with special needs: e.g. hidden or limited, or "Yes, No, If need be" polls. Click on "settings" to add select special poll features. 

4) Tap the create button when you are done.

Congratulations, you have just created your first Doodle poll in the app!

Invite your participants 

You are free to share this poll with anyone you like. Send it out via email, Messenger, or WhatsApp for your participants to choose the best date. You can also just copy the link and share it on any channel you prefer.

Additionally, if you use Premium, you will see directly on the poll table who didn't participate yet in the poll (if you invited via email), and you can remind them easily to do so. You also get detailed information about who already opened the invitation. When you tap on the invitees or participants, you get additional details, and you can send them a personal message to organize everything you need.

Choose final option

Once their votes are in, you can easily see the date that best fits everyone’s schedules and then choose the final option, which closes the poll. The only step after that would be to have a great time at your first Doodle-organized event.
