Why did I build it?

I love creating products that solve people's needs.

One day, my wife asked me if I knew of any tools that could help plan a week-long company getaway. The requirements were fairly straightforward:

  • 14 people
  • A 7-day trip
  • Sometime in the next 6 months

They weren’t concerned about choosing the exact time yet; they just needed to know which dates would work for everyone—or put another way, when does it NOT work?

I searched but couldn’t find anything that met this specific need, so I decided to build it myself.

The concept is simple: think of it as an inverse Doodle. You select a date range for the potential event and then ask your friends, family, or coworkers to mark the dates they are unavailable. This way, you can easily identify the best possible time slot.

This approach allows flexibility in planning. For instance, if there’s only a 5-day stretch available, that could work too.
