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

In today’s world, scheduling is more challenging than ever. Most people’s calendars are packed; they can be difficult to reach; and when you do reach them, they may not remember to respond.

Make it easy on yourself and use SurveyMonkey to create online polls for scheduling meetings! Instead of trying to hunt people down and follow up repeatedly by phone or email, use SurveyMonkey to build your poll. Then ask people to respond by sending a link out in an email, or embedding your questionnaire on web and Facebook pages. You can even automate reminders to respond.

Launch your poll in a few minutes. It’s easy, efficient, and FREE.

If you don’t already have a SurveyMonkey account, sign up for free to create and send your online scheduling poll in minutes. We make it simple to compose your question (or a few short questions), or you can get a head start with expert-certified templates and questions from our Question Bank. Then email or post the link to your poll, and collect your responses. Voila!

Use online polls to refine your meeting scheduler for any meeting, event, class, or activity!

  • Meetings. Use a SurveyMonkey online poll to schedule a meeting. Figure out possible dates and times for a global team meeting. Planning an offsite? Ask for preferences on meeting locations, menus, and extra-curricular activities, too, to streamline scheduling and planning.
  • Work schedules. If you run a restaurant, retail store, or any business that has a lot of employees working different shifts, creating a scheduling poll makes it easy to build your schedule by getting everyone’s availability laid out in one place.
  • Events. Assess host and guest availability and zero in on dates for big internal and external company, neighborhood, or association events.
  • Family reunions. Poll far-flung family members for potential dates and locations for a reunion or other family celebration.
  • Social gatherings. Poll friends for the best dates and times for the next cookout, group camping trip, girls’ night out, park play date, or poker game.
  • Class schedules. Determine interest level and best day, date, and time of day for scheduling classes, courses, or seminars.
  • Volunteer events. Run polls to gather volunteer availability for scheduling a calendar of activities.

It’s easy. Here’s how you do it:

  • Sign up for your free SurveyMonkey account.
  • Create your poll.
  • Send your poll link by email, or add the link to a Facebook or Twitter post.
  • Collect responses, analyze results—and schedule your event!

Simplify scheduling using SurveyMonkey online polls, and then explore other ways to use surveys. Use any one of our survey templates as the basis for your online poll, or start with one or more of the many methodologically sound and certified questions in our Question Bank. While all of our questions are written by professional survey methodologists, you can also customize questions to fit your polling or surveying needs.
