For the longest time, I’ve used Doodle to schedule online meetings. It’s still a great tool but since Covid-19 shutdowns began, I’ve discovered that Vyte.in is just as effective and tends to be much easier to use for online scheduling newbies.
While the basic approach is the same between both apps, Vyte provides a much cleaner user interface (UI) and requires fewer steps to set up invites.
One of Doodle’s ongoing pain points is the quantity of ads running on free user accounts. All of that is stripped away in Vyte so there’s no need to be anxious about projecting a less than professional image to peers and colleagues.
Add to that a more intuitive UI for selecting available times and you’ve got a winning combo of simplicity and effectiveness.
Managing everything once invites are sent is equally straightforward thanks to transactional messages informing you when responses arrive and when all selections are complete.
Normally, I’d write out some step by step instructions but Vyte is so simple to use, I’m willing to bet you won’t have any trouble with it.
Gone are the days when productivity apps lived or died based on their own set of core features and functionality. In today’s climate, if an app can’t connect, it’s dead in the water.
For my use, Vyte connects with every other productivity tool I use on a daily basis such as Slack, Chrome (Google Cal, Gmail, and LinkedIn), and Zoom. You’ll also find dedicated connections to Google Hangouts, Skype, and more.
If you need pro features, be sure to sign up for Vyte’s 50 percent nonprofit discount, which brings the price down to $4/mo. Having said that, I’ve been using Vyte exclusively over the past three months and have yet to find a reason to upgrade from Free to Pro.
If you’re unsure whether it’s worth your while, check out the Free vs. Pro comparison chart. They also offer a free 14-day trial.
