Doodle features

UPDATE: messaging with Doodle

We’ve been busy working on lots of cool new features in the last few weeks. Check out the details in the list below.   

Custom invites

You can customize your poll invitations. After you create a poll and add the names/email addresses of your invitees (see next section), you can now include a short message. Feel free to include any details you like about the poll or just a friendly greeting.   

Address books

You can connect your address book and add your contacts by name or email. As soon as you start typing, you’ll see your contacts appear. For Premium Doodle users, these contacts will appear as placeholders on the bottom of the poll. When your invitees make their selections in the poll, the placeholders disappear. This feature allows you to get a quick overview of who has and who hasn’t participated in your poll.

Stay in touch

We’ve made it even easier to get in touch and stay in touch with anyone you invite to a poll. Now it’s possible for Premium users to contact their invitees directly. The messaging option can be found in the ‘more’ menu at the top of the page.  You’ll see everyone’s email address populated in the box. You can choose to message everyone or just individuals if you’d like to connect over Doodle.

Improved reminders

Send reminders to get results faster. For Doodle Premium users it’s possible to send out reminder emails with just a click. Everyone in the poll or just those who haven’t participated can be sent a reminder.

Close the poll with a message

After you choose a final date and close the poll, you have the option to share the results of the poll. And just like with our poll invitations you can add a little note. Click ‘share results’ at the top of the page to try it out.

Export to excel

When you export the poll to excel, you’ll have all the poll details in one handy file. You’ll notice that you’ll have all the names of your participants listed with their email addresses on the second sheet.

Create a new poll and see how awesome these new features are.

    hi – this all looks great, but the reminders dont seem to work? when i click on the send emails, the options i get are participated or everyone, there is no option for people who havent participated yet?? Does this need fixing? I am a premium account holder. Thanks

    • Hi Amy!
      We’re going to add this. For the moment, you can send reminders by clicking ‘send reminders’ at the top of the page. You can send messages to those who haven’t participated or everyone if you like!

  3. I just clicked on your “Try it out” button above and entered 3 one word sample items, then clicked “Continue” as instructed.
    And waited, waited, waited, etc. the lower right icon continued to circle while I waited some more, but nothing happened and I gave up. Did I do something wrong?

    • Thanks for getting in touch! Which browser are you using? Have you tried Chrome? Could you clear your cache and cookies and try once more? Thanks!
