Hover and Reveal

Doodle is awesome – and free!  It lets you propose and find common times to meet.  Michelle introduced me to Doodle years ago when she used it for  scheduling meetings across multiple companies.  Since then we’ve used it for picking social dates,  looking for common times.  Now our family is using Doodle for elder care scheduling,  looking to book unique times.

I learned a way to get around a missing feature: For “doodles” that span long periods of time, you lose the participant name on the side.  It lacks what Excel calls “freeze panes”, so the names scroll away.

Steve showed me this: although you can’t always see the original list of names, each name will be displayed if you hover the mouse over a booked block.
