Doodle – despite it’s hilariously silly name has been around since 2005. Originally known for free group bookings, Doodle is venturing into the generic scheduling space. Everyone knows that the Doodle interface is much like it’s namesake (like a child’s sketch). It has tried to evolve, but has not done this well. Despite this, Doodle maintains an old world charm akin to getting into an old train, that still has to service a community. It still does group bookings well and has certainly created a nice methodology of voting on availability. It’s a good tool for casual events, but one that ought not be used in professional settings.
Above we detail a comparison table of Doodle with Cogsworth features based on a December 2018 review kindly facilitated by our users.
This is why sites like Capterra, Getapp, Finances Online are driving so many people to seek and find alternatives to Doodle.
Gather information about your customers as they are booking with you. Ask the important questions and manage expectations.
Create custom email and SMS notifications and reminders to reduce no-shows.
Add as many staff and resources to your business as you want then set their working hours, breaks and shifts.
Two way sync between your Google or Outlook calendars. This means you can never be double booked when you are busy. And all of your appointments get automatically added to your calendar or that of your staff.
