Why Choose
SavvyCal vs Doodle?

Doodle’s premium version is better fit for group meetings and their free version is ridden with ads. SavvyCal is the Doodle alternative that makes scheduling collaborative instead of a nuisance.

Doodle is great for group meetings. But there’s no question scheduling 1:1 meetings leaves you wanting more.

Doodle is a great company with a truly pioneering product for group scheduling. That said, you’re here for a reason. And the fact of the matter is that Doodle wasn’t built for 1:1 meetings.

If you’re okay with sending out a generic link that forces the recipient to jump through a few hoops to meet with you, SavvyCal probably won’t be a good fit for you. But if you care about providing an enjoyable experience for anyone booking a meeting with you, you’re in the right place.

So what sets SavvyCal apart from Doodle?

Here are nine ways SavvyCal outperforms Doodle.

Personalize links

Quickly create individual scheduling links for your recipients.

Calendar overlay

No need to switch back and forth between screens any more.

Availability presets
