SurveyMonkey for scheduling

Use SurveyMonkey to create online polls to schedule meetings, events and work rotas

These days, scheduling can be quite the challenge. People tend to be busy, hard to get hold of, have jam-packed diaries and can easily forget to reply.

Make life easier for yourself. Use SurveyMonkey to create online polls to schedule meetings or events. We think it’s the best way to schedule meetings online.

Instead of trying to chase people down and follow up repeatedly by phone or email, use SurveyMonkey to build a poll. Ask people to respond by emailing out a link, posting the link on your Facebook wall, or even embedding the poll on a web page. And set up automatic reminders so don’t have to worry about chasing responses. You can even do it all on the go by scheduling meetings in the app.

Launch your poll in just a few minutes. It’s quick, easy and free.

Don’t have a SurveyMonkey account yet? No problem. Sign up for free and you’ll be sending out your online poll for scheduling in minutes. A poll is simple to create, using your own question (or a couple of questions), or our expert-certified survey templates and questions from the Question Bank. Next, just email, publish, or share the link to your poll. Then sit back, relax and watch the responses roll in.

How can online scheduling polls help?

SurveyMonkey is the ideal software for scheduling meetings. But scheduling polls can also be used for lots of other things. They’re great for organising events, rotas, workshops or even get-togethers with friends.

  • Meetings. Whether you’re all based in one office, or offices across the globe with different time zones to take into consideration, an online poll takes the hassle out of meeting scheduling. And if you’re planning something like an away day, you can gather preferences on locations, catering options and social activities, all at the same time.
  • Work schedules. If you run a business with staff working different shifts, such as a restaurant or shop, a scheduling poll helps with putting together a staff rota by laying out everyone’s availability in one place.
  • Events.  Poll guests and hosts on their availability to narrow down dates and times for events, from large internal and external company conferences or functions, to smaller neighbourhood and local association events.
  • Family gatherings. Poll far-flung family members on potential dates and locations for a reunion or other family celebration.
  • Social events or get-togethers. Poll friends on the best dates and times for the next BBQ, dinner date, city break, play date or pub quiz.
  • Class schedules. Gauge interest and the best timing for classes, courses or workshops.
  • Volunteer events. Use polls on volunteer availability to know when to plan activities.
