QuickLINK Tech Tip:  Doodle Polls

Need to schedule a meeting or hearing that involves a lot of individuals? Use a Doodle Poll. Simply input the times that you are available and send the poll link to all participants. You’ll receive updates as each person responds. Look at a glance to see when everyone is available, rather than receiving dozens of emails telling you when someone is and is *not* available—no need to relive the logic portion of the LSAT!

Thank you to SSFS Technology Committee member Judge Jennifer Kuyrkendall Griffin for contributing this tip.
