Meet the perfect

Doodle alternative

Doodle’s free version is ridden with ads. SavvyCal is the Doodle alternative that makes scheduling collaborative instead of a nuisance, complete with both meeting polls and scheduling links.

Doodle is in the business of advertising to your recipients.

Doodle was a pioneer in group scheduling. That said, you’re here for a reason. And the fact of the matter is that Doodle's business is dependent on showing ads to your recipients.

If you’re okay with sending out meeting polls with random advertisements all around the calendar to vote on time slots, SavvyCal probably won’t be a good fit for you.

But if you care about providing an enjoyable experience for anyone booking a meeting, you’re in the right place.

SavvyCal is in the business of providing the best end-user experience in both meeting polls and scheduling links.

“SavvyCal makes me feel better about finding time to meet with clients, partners, and colleagues. It goes beyond similar tools by removing the awkwardness of imposing your schedule upon others.”

Make personalization a priority

With SavvyCal, you can create personalized links in seconds to make a great impression while also reducing the steps needed to schedule a time.

With Doodle, you have to send the same ol’ link to everyone.

Propose time slots around existing meetings of attendees

With SavvyCal, you can add attendees to avoid proposing time slots that conflict with their schedule.

With Doodle, you have no insight into which times are most likely to work for recipients.

Find the best time for everyone

With SavvyCal, recipients can overlay their calendar on top of yours to easily find mutual availability.

With Doodle, the burden is on the recipient to switch back and forth to find a good time.

Optimize for preferred times

With SavvyCal, you can optimize your schedule by presenting availability windows in a particular order.

With Doodle, recipients are limited to just one availability window.

Adjusting availability should save time, not waste time.

With SavvyCal, you can quickly make changes across multiple meeting types at the same time.

With Doodle, availability has to be manually changed for each and every link.

Protect against meeting overload

With SavvyCal, you can limit how many meetings can be booked per day, week, or month.

With Doodle, you might wake up to 10 back to back meetings on a Monday.

Customize availability on the fly

With SavvyCal, you can preview and manually allow or block off time before sending.

With Doodle, “ad hoc meetings” have to be created in order to adjust availability, which completely negates the purpose of creating preset links in the first place.

Select calendars on a per-link basis

With SavvyCal, you can check for conflicts across multiple calendars and set which calendar you want to store each meeting in.

With Doodle, every meeting is stored on the same calendar — don’t they teach you not to mix business with pleasure?

Multiple duration lengths for each link

With SavvyCal, recipients can book as little or as much time as they need.

With Doodle, you have to create a separate link for every duration variant you want to offer.

Ad-free meeting polls

With SavvyCal, you can invite people to vote on a set of times to meet without any distractions.

With Doodle, you’re out of luck if you want to schedule a group meeting.
