Sure it’s simple to use Doodle to find the best time to meet, but what if you want to find out something else?
With a Doodle text poll you can ask your participants anything you like.
So you’ve just used Doodle to figure out the best date for a big family weekend. Everyone participated in the poll, and it turns out they can all make it. Now you have to decide exactly what to do. You could rent a cabin in the mountains, visit the beach, or do some big-city sightseeing. The good news is you don’t have to be responsible for finding the activity that satisfies them all. You can create a text poll with the options and let everyone vote on it! It’s the best way to add a little democracy to the planning process.
It’s pretty easy to think of all kinds of applications for text polls. Want to get a count on who’s eating what for that dinner party coming up? Need to know how many would opt for chicken or fish or how many vegetarians are around? Spicy or not? Just include all of these options and plan the rest of the meal accordingly.
If you want to start a text poll you can do so from the homepage. Scroll down and click the ‘create text poll’ button. It’s similar to a Doodle time poll, but during step two you write in the text for each option rather than choosing dates.
