Nutshell Scheduler vs. Doodle comparison

You’ve likely read about Doodle when on the hunt for the best online meeting scheduling tool. While it certainly offers a few helpful features, its complexity, zero co-hosting option on lower plans, and lack of sales integration make Doodle an undesirable option for many.

Nutshell Scheduler is the ideal Doodle alternative, providing sophisticated sales integration and a user-friendly tool you can rely on. You’ll receive timely notifications and reminders and can easily co-host an event with someone, even if they’re in a different time zone. Plus, its price tag covers your entire team (not per user, like Doodle), making it clear that Nutshell Scheduler is the far more cost-effective option.

Let’s take a closer look at how these two online appointment scheduling tools stack up against each other.

Sales integration—so each booking helps you build better customer relationships

Because Nutshell Scheduler is native to the Nutshell CRM platform, you’ll always have a holistic view of your relationships with the customers and prospects scheduling bookings. Effortlessly embed your scheduler link into a Nutshell Form to capture vital information about your audience so that you can better understand them.

Nutshell will automatically send the information gathered through your form to your CRM, creating either a new Company or Person record and adding them as a Lead to your chosen sales pipeline. Viewing the record gives you access to all the Person or Company information and a detailed timeline of every interaction with your prospect.

Assign an activity type to each appointment, whether a call, demo, or virtual meeting, so that you can draw reports related to Scheduler bookings. This is a great way to keep track of call and meeting quotas and assess your team’s overall productivity.

If you opt for Doodle as your meeting scheduler, you’ll need an app like Zapier to facilitate integration with your CRM. This could become challenging, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the tech. It would also prove more expensive, as you’d have to sign up with Zapier and a CRM to get a good overview of your customer and prospect information relationships.

Co-host events—so you can leverage the power of a group presentation

Whether you’re organizing a recruitment interview or client meeting, you may need more than one team member present for various reasons. With Nutshell Scheduler, you can seamlessly add a team member as a co-host to a new or existing event at no additional cost.

Simply choose the Co-host option when you begin the event setup process and add the relevant co-hosts from the dropdown list below it. Changing an existing “Solo” meeting to a “Co-host” meeting in the scheduler is equally as straightforward, with an “Add co-host(s)” button visible at the top right-hand corner of the scheduled event. All that’s left to do is update the hosting details by clicking the “Hosting details” link above the event.

Doodle also offers a co-hosting option, but there are some conditions attached. First, you must be a Team or Enterprise plan subscriber to access this feature. Second, you can only add another user from your team as a co-host, which means you’ll need to add them as a user at an additional cost.

Pay per company, not per seat—so everyone on your team can book meetings

Lots of people in your company, from your customer support team to your sales and marketing teams, may need to schedule a meeting or event at some point. We understand this at Nutshell, so we’ve priced Nutshell Scheduler for your entire company, not per user or seat. That means that for $37 per month, everyone on your team can access a robust scheduling tool straight from your CRM software.

With Doodle, you can choose between three paid plans and a highly limited free plan. Paid plans are priced per user and start at $6.95 per user per month if billed annually. This entry price jumps all the way up to $14.95 per user per month if billed monthly. Irrespective, the cost of your Doodle scheduling tool can become rather steep when adding team members.

All our scheduling features—for every plan

You’ll need a paid Doodle plan to add a second user and increase to more than one sign-up sheet, booking page, and 1:1 per month. You’ll also need to sign up for Doodle’s higher-tier plans to take advantage of features like co-hosted events, admin console, roles and permissions, activity reports, and single sign-on.

With Nutshell Scheduler, you can access every available Scheduler feature at one flat rate for your whole team. This includes the ability to add custom forms, send confirmations and reminders, get live support from our award-winning customer support team, and more.
