This is part of a series of articles that will appear over the next few months as part of the Go Paperless initiative at Indiana University.
Before you send those paper invitations, consider an electronic method.
We all know that planning meetings and get-togethers with more than two people can be a nightmare. With Doodle, you can make it a snap.
What is Doodle?
Doodle is a free and very simple online tool that allows you to suggest dates and times for events or meetings in a simple table. When you have filled in all possible dates and times, you then share the web address of your suggestions with your invitees. No need for them to register. They simply visit the page, type in a name of their choice, and click check-boxes to select the times they can attend. Doodle saves all responses right there for everyone to see, and keeps track of the best date.
With Doodle Premium, you can connect calendars and send automatic reminders. Doodle is a free app for mobile devices, too!
