No, I am not talking about the art work you do when you are bored in a meeting or the opportunity to get acquainted with a wacky person. I mean the free Internet calendar tool, Doodle. It helps you schedule a date and time when most of the people in the group can meet. I have participated in Doodle for work and ministry.
If you, the leader, want to find out the availability of your group, go to Doodle. You can try it first with a pretend meeting. I suggest that you register as an administrator right away and get doodling. Click on "log in" the upper right hand corner. Then select "Create account." Doodle gives you helpful prompts along the way.
Meeting participants do not have to register. Doodle invites them to a meeting (It is called polling.). Then, the group members select the dates and times that are best for them within the parameters you set up . You (the administrator) can see the results of the poll and set the meeting. Your life just got easier.
