Need to schedule an event or make a choice? ETH members can simply use ETH Doodle, an ad-free Doodle with ETH logo.
There are two things that are important to note: ETH network and URL.
Creating an ETH Doodle and subsequent administration are possible only within the ETH network. Outside the ETH Zurich network, you need the VPN client to create a new Doodle or edit an already existing one.
Remember: Logon with an ETH email address is not enough.
The ETH Doodle has its own URL.
