Doodle launches new calendar integrations for Outlook.com and Office 365

Today is a great day for our Doodle users because they’re now able to integrate their Doodle events into Outlook.com and Office 365 calendars. Also, all of our calendar integrations (including the existing ones like Google Calendar, iCloud, and ICS) are now available in our free Doodle version.

This means that all of our users are able to create and participate in meeting polls directly from their Doodle calendar view without needing to switch back and forth between their calendars. Now that’s what we call productivity!

Doodle appoints Capella for UK brief

We have news about our PR work in the United Kingdom. We are very happy to announce that we have appointed London based Capella as our retained PR agency.

Doodle is already the nation’s favourite social scheduling tool, with a Brit using the online service to arrange a meet up with friends every minute of every day1. Capella will lead a campaign to encourage even more consumers to use Doodle. It will focus on positioning Doodle as a way to sustain and rekindle friendships.

Capella delivers integrated PR and digital campaigns for consumer and b2b brands. Capella was named Small Agency of the Year 2014 by both the PRCA and PR Moment in the United Kingdom and is a PR Week New Consultancy 2014 finalist. Capella employs twelve staff at its London offices.

Gareth Thomas, founder of Capella, said, “In a world of jam-packed diaries, arranging group social meet ups can sometimes feel like herding cats. Doodle solves this issue and is already growing exponentially – we’re looking forward to accelerating this with a campaign that connects Doodle with friendship and showcases how it makes our social lives easier.”

Michael Brecht, CEO of Doodle, said, “Capella has some really smart ideas about how we can take the Doodle brand to the next level in the UK and we’re delighted to be partnering with them to boost awareness and users.”

1 In 2014, over 947,000 polls were created on Doodle in the UK, equating to 1.8 polls / minute.

Public Service Announcement – WeNeedtoUseDoodle.com

With over twenty million users each month, our online scheduling tools have already reached a lot of people, but we still have more work to do. In an effort to help spread the word about Doodle to even more people, we’ve created the WeNeedtoUseDoodle.com Public Service Announcement.

Many of you have shared stories about times when you’ve been stuck in the middle of a scheduling nightmare with a group of people who were using email, phone calls, and text messages to find a time for the group to meet, and in order to put a stop to the chaos, you suggested that Doodle should be used instead. This word-of-mouth promotion has been a large driver of Doodle’s growth, and our PSA makes it even easier to tell others about Doodle in this way.

So the next time that you find yourself stuck in a scheduling nightmare with a group of people, just send them the link to WeNeedtoUseDoodle.com and put a stop to it. We hope you like what we’ve created, and please help us raise awareness about online scheduling by sharing the link with others!
