Doodle

Post by djewesbury » 12:25 Sat 12 Apr 2014

I use Doodle to allow students to select a tutorial slot from a range of available times. I can limit it so that each time can only be 'voted for' by one participant, but the usual way of using it is so that potential participants can easily find the most commonly convenient date for a meeting.

Is this a tool that would be useful for organising tastings? Might it save us from having threads with pages of "I can't do Thursdays in May but I can do the second Tuesday in June, unless my wife is walking the dog..."?

What could possibly be wrong with trying to find the modal answer from a series of options, complicated by "must accommodate" constraints for people with particular bottles, using lots of crossing-over posts etc?

Doodle functionality looks good, baby blue and pink colour does not...

Why do so many websites insist on infantilising us?

Because users are, often as not, as attentive and competent as infants?
