MyPunchbowl is the first event and party planning website to offer a real-time algorithm which drives group consensus and automates date selection for the host. Unlike current methods which require the host to manually settle on a date from a group’s overall responses, MyPunchbowl allows the host to indicate which guests are the most important (VIPs) and offers a unique method to drive group consensus. When a guest responds, MyPunchbowl Pick-a-Date places each guest response under one date option based on their availability. As more guests respond, the software groups guests together in real-time to form consensus. Group dynamics then influence individual behavior as future guests choose a date to align with the majority. This unique method helps quickly drive group consensus and automates date selection for the host. 

The MyPunchbowl Pick-a-Date functionality culminates months of research and development and extensive customer input. “We believe Pick-a-Date offers breakthrough functionality for event and party planning,” said Matt Douglas, Founder, Punchbowl Software, “this advances as the most user-friendly and sophisticated event and party planning software on the web.”   Key MyPunchbowl Pick-a-Date features include:

  • Real-time adjustment of the best date based on guest availability
