we added a new feature to our meeting polls. As creator of a poll you can now choose the option “Anonymous meeting poll”. If this option is active the participants in your poll won’t be able to see each others votes. Furthermore the voting result will be hidden. Only the administrator can view and manage all votes in the admin area. It is therefore important to keep the admin-link at a safe place since otherwise you won’t be able to see the voting result.
Anonymous meeting polls are useful if you want to keep the votes confidential or if you have a poll with many participants where it is not important that the participants see each others votes.
if you subscribed to email notifications about new entries in polls or new comments, you received so far an email for every new entry. This could lead to numerous emails for polls with many participants.
In order to reduce the number of notifications you will from now on receive only one email even if there are multiple new entries until you visit the poll via the link in the notification email.
We hope that this makes the scheduling process even more comfortable for you.
Your xoyondo.com team
If you found the best day in your date poll or the best option in your opinion poll you can now finalize it. Just click on the ‘lock’-symbol in the admin area of your poll and mark the best date / best option as definitive. Your participants won’t be able to vote once your poll is locked. If something changes you can easily open it again afterwards and modify it in the usual way.
You can now also give your participants the possibility to import the chosen date directly in their Google/Yahoo/Outlook/Apple-calendars.
If you have any questions concerning this new feature, please contact us.
We made the following changes/additions in to order to simplify the scheduling process for you and your participants even more:
- If the participants are invited via xoyondo they will receive a personalized link to the poll. In this way they can easily modify their vote from different devices (PC, Laptop, Tablet, Smartphone).
- After voting in a date- or opinion poll every participant has the possibility to obtain a personal link to the current poll. In this way the vote can be modified from different devices.
- You can now add a personal message to the xoyondo invitation emails.
- The administrator of a poll can now edit and delete comments.
- It is now optional to enter an email address when creating a poll or a message board. If the email address is not provided the corresponding links to the poll or message board and administration area have to be saved manually!
If you have question or remarks, please contact us via Facebook, Twitter or email. You can also leave a comment on this page.
Dear xoyondo user,
We have redesigned the administration area for polls. You can now adjust the settings of your polls in a more flexible and direct way.
General settings can be modified in the two panels (see next picture) at the top of the admin area. Here you can, e.g., change your name or activate/deactivate comments. Furthermore you can add or edit other types of polls.
Settings of date- or opinion polls can now be directly modified within the poll. Information like title, description, expiration date or event location can be modified by clicking on the orange ‘edit’-button next to the title. In the poll table you will now find different buttons in order to:
- add dates (large ‘plus’-symbol to the left)
- add times for certain dates (small ‘plus’-symbol in the corresponding date cell)
- edit dates (small ‘edit’-symbol in the corresponding date cell)
- delete dates (small ‘trash’-symbol in the corresponding date cell)
- edit times (small ‘edit’-symbol in the corresponding times cell)
- delete times (small ‘trash’-symbol in the corresponding times cell)
Note: If you add a date or a time, a question mark will be displayed to existing participants for the new date or time. The present votes will not be affected.
We hope that you like the new administration area and that this will further simplify your scheduling tasks. If you have further suggestions we would be happy if you contact us via email, Facebook, Twitter or just leave a comment on this page.
Dear xoyondo users,
we have implemented a new feature on xoyondo. Participants in a date or opinion poll can now modify their vote in case their schedule or opinion altered. They can modify their vote by simply clicking the ‘edit’ icon near their name and entering the updated information.
Please note that users can only change their vote if they visit xoyondo with the same device (computer, tablet, smartphone) they have originally voted with.
If you have any question please contact us.
What is SSL?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. SSL is a security technology that allows to transmit data between a website (xoyondo) and a browser (you) in a secure way. Without SSL data between a website and a browser is sent in plain text. If attackers are able to intercept this data they can see and use it. This is especially problematic if the data sent contains sensitive information like passwords or credit card numbers. The SSL protocol encrypts the data that is to be sent from a website to the browser (and vice versa) and thus ensures that your data remains confidential.
Why does xoyondo use SSL?
Since our service is free and works without registration you never have to enter credit card details or login information that could be intercepted by an attacker. However we believe that all your personal data (including your name, email address or the meeting you want to organize) is important and needs to be protected. This is why we use the SSL technology to secure the communication between you and xoyondo on our entire website.
A secure connection to xoyondo is easy to recognize. A green padlock icon as well as https:// will be visible at the address bar of your browser.
Happy (and secure) scheduling!
With xoyondo you can schedule events and meetings without sending around dozens of emails. Just pick suitable dates and send the link to your personal poll website to every participants of your event. Each participant now can indicate suitable times so that you can easily determine the best date for you event.

xoyondo originated from a project that we started (under a different name) already in 2006. This year we decided to relaunch this project with a completely rewritten code. We are eager to further improve xoyondo. Help us with your feedback and contact us via email, Facebook, Twitter or Google+. We are grateful for your suggestions!
