Doodle adds “reset admin link” feature to help administer your poll

Who hasn’t experienced this problem before: we click the SEND button in our eMail program and realise just in that same second, that we have sent a wrong link or have sent the eMail to the wrong person. Our Doodle users told us that they would love to get security for such error when sending the participation links for a scheduled poll out.

With today’s release, we have improved the use of Doodle admin links. Within the admin panel for your poll we now have added a functionality for organisers to reset the admin link. Such new admin link will be sent to the organiser by eMail, actually to that address that was used for setting up the poll. All users that have received the former admin link will be able to participate in the poll but not be able to administer the poll.

In hoping that we were able to help our users with such change we wish you happy Doodling on the world’s easiest scheduling tool.

Important security news from Doodle

Earlier this week a vulnerability in the OpenSSL library was disclosed. Doodle uses this library to encrypt data transmissions like many other Internet services. Therefore Doodle might be affected by this issue. Learn more about the vulnerability on heartbleed.com.

First and foremost we want to express that all Doodle systems have been updated after the disclosure and the issue is therefore resolved on doodle.com.

There are no signs that the vulnerability was exploited to tap into Doodle’s data transmissions. However, due to the nature of the vulnerability this cannot be completely ruled out, though.

We want to emphasize that NO credit card data could have leaked via Doodle as this data is sent directly to our billing provider from your browser.

As a precaution we recommend that you reset your passwords and reconnect your calendars:
