Yesterday, I shared three ways to post presentations online without registration. Today, I want to share ways to schedule meetings or events where you might need to give a presentation. There a number of programs or websites that are more in depth than the three I am going to share, but these web applications are designed to find a common time to host an event or meet together without the need to sign up.
- When Is Good: This is the website with the least amount of options of the three, but it is also the easiest to use. Choose your time increments of 15, 30, 60 minutes or a whole day and then highlight the times you are available. Use the show options to make full use of the site such as a description or giving the page a custom URL before naming the site and creating the event. You will be given a code that you will need to see the results later on, so make sure you write it down. You will then be supplied with three URLs: one for sharing, one for the results, and one for editing the calendar. Others can then choose their times and provide comments and their name.
- Doodle: Doodle uses a polling type design to find a time to meet together. You first need to provide the basic information such as title, place, description, and name (email is optional) before proceeding. You then select a day and time through a calendar or use the free text option. Finally, you can choose a number of options for the poll such as a single answer per person or limiting the number of choices. You are then given two URLs: one for sharing and the other for editing.
- Meetifyr: This is the most feature-rich site of the three with the options to include extras such as a custom map. You first must provide information such as what it is (title) and where (the location). You can also provide a more detailed description if you would like. For the location, you can choose a map. You then choose your date or date range and copy the URL to share.
I hope that has been helpful for you. If you have any comments or would like to suggest a site for this list, please share your comments below or tweet them to @nathanghall and I will add them to the list!
