The DFN Scheduler is a public platform that enables participants to coordinate appointments quickly and easily.

It is not necessary to create an account: access is granted by entering your e-mail address. Additional administrator access is available for the creater of the poll, which offers extensive editing functions.

Further functions are:

  • The creation of anonymous polls in which only the administrator can see the participant names and the result
  • An option to implement a upper limit per answer, e.g. for consultation hours or occupancy lists
  • Access to a vote can be secured with a password
  • Participants can edit their votes after submission
  • Partipants can vote by proxy

Access to this service does not have to be requested from the Computer Centre. External users can also be invited to participate in the surveys.
