Doodle app: Create polls

Download the app

I you haven't done so already, get the Doodle app from the App store or the Google play store.

Set up an account or log into your existing Doodle account to use the app. 

All your created polls are saved on your account, so no matter which device you log into you will always see your existing polls. 

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. 

For the moment, Doodle 1:1 and Bookable calendar are NOT supported in the app. 

Create a group poll or a survey 

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 survey with text options. 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.

 

Step by step 

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

2) Select the dates in the calendar. If needed, tap add times just above to add some time slots. 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'd 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 have a Premium subscription, you can also see the emails you invited to the poll directly on the poll table and send a message to the people who have not yet responded and remind them to do so. 


Choose final option

Once their votes are in, you can easily see the date that 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.

And DONE
