WhichDateWorks – Online Event Scheduling

ss-whichdateworks

WhichDateWorks is a service similar to that of Doodle. They offer simplified event scheduling and invitation sending. The service is entirely free and there’s no sign-up required, though there are advanced features available for users who choose to create an account, including recent plans, a list of received invitations, and an address book of your recent contacts.

WhichDateWorks is extremely easy to use, making it a good choice if you’re looking to help simplify your scheduling needs. First, name your plan, add any details you want your friends to know, such as where to meet, things to bring, and so on. Next, add the email addresses of people you’d like to invite. To simplify this process, you can import your already existing email list. After that, select the dates you’re available and send out your invitations. It’s as easy as that. Users can respond to your invitation three ways—”yes,” “no,” or “maybe” and you can click individual dates to see who’s responded.

There are still some features that could be added to make the process easier. For instance, users don’t have the option of deleting an invitation if they make a mistake nor can they add another person to the invitation list once it’s already been sent. WhichDateWorks is still in beta so improvements should be expected in time, making WhichDateWorks a viable option for your online event scheduling needs.
