meet.fruux - The easiest way to schedule events

Finding a convenient time to meet several people can be quite a challenge.

Welcome meet.fruux, your new personal assistant. With meet.fruux finding the right time for a meet-up or even a phone call with multiple people is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • What is your event about?
  • When are the possible times?
  • Who should attend?

To give you an example, let's try to find the best day for the start of the barbecue season (yes, it's already a bit late, but it was still freezing cold here for the last couple of months).

Let's create a new event.

We'll need a name for the event (we chose "BBQ season start" here), your name and your email address (we need that to send you notifications once the people you invited vote on their favorite dates).

Suggest a few dates.

We checked the weather forecast and our own schedule. Based on that we came up with these three possible dates for our BBQ party.

Finally we'll invite a bunch of people.

All thats left is now inviting a bunch of people. If you enter them here, we'll send them an email with their personal voting link.

Don't worry if you don't have any email addresses at hand. We'll also give you a public link to your poll that you can just pass around on e.g. on Facebook.

We'll send out emails.

We'll send the people you invited to your event emails and ask them to vote on the dates that work for them.

Now everybody submits his/her vote.

We'll send you a notification whenever anybody votes on his/her favorite votes to keep you posted about the process of your poll.

You pick the final date.

Once everybody voted, you'll have to pick the date that works best for everybody. We've picked June, 14th here. If you check the "Email everbody" option, we'll send all the people that voted a final email to let them know about the date you've picked.

We hope you'll like meet.fruux. Let us know if you have any feature requests!

It's also an App!

meet.fruux works great on mobile devices. Grab your iPhone or Anroid and easily add it as an App to your homescreen. No installation required.
