Doodle - Responding to an event poll
In order to respond to an event poll created via Doodle, you need the Participation link provided to you by the event poll's creator. This document explains how to respond to such a poll.
Responding to a poll
To respond to a Doodle event scheduling poll, you must do the following:
- Follow the Participation link which was sent to you by the event poll's creator
- Once you've opened this link, you should see a poll similar to what is shown below
- Enter your name in the field highlighted above
- Check or select your availability
- Click Save to submit your response
Viewing a poll's responses
If the poll has not been made hidden by its creator, then you will be able to view the poll's responses by simply following the Participant link. When responses have been added, you will see a view similar to that shown below.
Depending on the settings chosen by the poll creator, you may be able to do additional things:
Edit an entry - This lets you change any response to the poll. This function can be disabled by the poll creator, as it allows anyone with the participant link to edit another participant's response.
Delete an entry - Allows you to delete any response to the poll. This function can be disabled by the poll creator, as it allows anyone with the participant link to edit another participant's response.
Add a comment - This lets you add comments to the poll.
Calendar export - Allows you to export either the responses of a person for all times or the responses of all participants for one time. The format is .ics which can be imported by most modern calendaring applications.
File export - This lets you export the survey results as either a PDF or an Excel file.
Print - Brings up the same menu as the File export function.
Subscribe to this poll - Allows you to receive updates to the poll via the Atom syndication format, with quicklinks for various news readers/aggregators (e.g. Google Reader).
Embed this poll - Allows you to create a dashboard or module containing an overview of responses to the poll with a link to participate.
