Friday, July 16, 2010 - The sane way to coordinate events and people

I hand out various honors at my shul, and lately, we've been trying to get better about assigning certain honors before the service starts. For the last couple months, I've been doing this via e-mail. Well, it was time to find a better system, as keeping track of everyone's availability was getting tricky in a hurry.

The fix? Using Doodle, I was able to make a quick survey asking folks when they planned to be in shul over the next few weeks. They fill in their responses, and then I'm able to coordinate weeks of assignments all at once.

I suppose Doodle is just another example of sending out a survey to users. However, Doodle feels more lightweight, and for asking a single question about availability, it seems to work better than say a Google Form.

If you coordinate meetings, events or people, you've really got to give it a shot.
