I began using Doodle pretty much when I came to Cambridge, almost a year ago. I'm with Annie in that It is invaluable for organising events whether professional or personal and its simple nature makes it straightforward and easily understood (much like TeuxDeux, which is a wonderful invention and should be used by all!) I agree with Gareth when he comments on the possibility of replying as anyone, this does seem open to problems. Also, I have done several polls where my options have been bigger than usual but as long as the people replying realise that there is a sort of concertina going on it is fine (a tad unwieldy though, I admit).

The plan is to transfer over to UL cards soon (hurrah for the graduate trainees of the future who, therefore, will not have to spend the first few weeks making c.300 library cards, cutting out the pictures and laminating them!
