Hello Hunters and Makers 👋 We’re really excited to launch our new Doodle Bot for Slack. For the first time, we’re bringing the simplicity and ease of classic Doodle polls into Slack, to let you find the best time for a meeting with your Slack mates or with people outside your team. Doodle Bot is one of the first apps to use Slack’s brand new Block Kit, that allows Doodle user to accomplish more, right inside Slack. How does it work? 1. Suggest times for your meeting - Add a few time options to your poll invite. 2. Invite participants - Invite channels, members, email contacts or use the shareable link anywhere. 3. Select the best option - Once the availabilities are in, pick the time that works for everyone and voilà! Forget about juggling between calendars and chat services, jumping between tabs or resending invites - use Doodle Bot to create and manage meetings where you work. Gone are the days of following up or rescheduling. Instead of wasting time chasing people or circling back on endless email threads - send one message with a list of possible time options. Have participants vote based on their availability, and select the time that works for everyone. Done. No group is too big (or small) for the mighty Doodle Bot. Whether you’re planning a team meeting, an all-hands event, or setting up an interview - we’ve got you covered. Easily invite entire Slack channels, individual members or external email contacts. Once everyone votes, you’ll receive their availabilities in a poll-like view, making it crystal clear to see and pick the best option possible. Use Slack commands to manage all your meetings. Type /doodle list to see all your meetings and participant replies. If you already have a Doodle account, connect it to Doodle Bot to manage all your meetings in one place, without having to jump between tabs or apps. You don't have to monitor response emails. Get Slack notifications about your poll updates in real time. We can’t wait to hear your feedback and try our new app! We’re here to answer any questions you have. While meetings will always remain a part of our work lives, the time spent scheduling them doesn't have to. So let's make meetings happen, in Slack!

@ishay_bitton thank you! 😉

It really makes making Doodles faster, since I'm all day in Slack anyway, it's great to make Doodles straight from Slack!

Pros:

FAST!

Cons:

Different than the web interface, fully text based. So lots of typing. (But I like that, not sure if Con..)

i like the simplicity that the slack block kit provides, it's just new to me, and i need to get used to using buttons in slack. but it's actually a good thing. makes poll creation easy.

Pros:

it's cool that i don't have to leave my work flow to create doodle polls

Cons:

need to get used to it

I always loved both doodle and slack but it was very annoying to have to move from one system to another. This is a killer application for me :-)

Pros:

You can create polls directly from Slack! The interaction is very simple and clear

Cons:

Still a first version, can't wait to have more features and improvements in the user experience

Doodle finally arrived on slack 🎉 Good job!
