From your Doodle dashboard click on 'create' and then on '1:1 meeting' as shown below
1) You can now add a meeting title, meeting details (like a link to a conference call or notes for example) meeting location, and select a default duration time for the meeting.
2) In the following step you'll be able to select your proposed time slots for the meeting. You do this by simply clicking on the time you would like to propose in the time table.
You want to offer time slots of various duration? Not a problem! Simply click anywhere on the time table, add a time and drag the lower side of the icon to "stretch" the slot to the desired length:
3) Great! At this point all you have to do is send an invitation. You can extend an email invitation or copy a link to be shared with your invitee (or multiple invitees):
Also if you'd like to schedule multiple meetings (use one 1:1 to schedule several individual 1:1 meetings) at once, just click on 'add guests' as shown below:
You can add separate email addresses or add a list of invitees. You can do so clicking on the "add invitees in bulk" link and copying and pasting in the pop up window that you will open:
You can also invite your participants by sharing the an open link to the 1:1 - anyone with the link can select a time slot in your 1:1. Simple select the sharing options as seen below and copy the link (if you have already invited some participants via email, it is no longer possible to invite via link sharing)
That was it! Once your participants selects one of your proposed time slots you will both be notified via email, and the event will automatically appear in your connected calendar.
