Microsoft Bookings is a scheduling tool integrated into Office 365. Bookings gives you a faster alternative to time-consuming and repetitive scheduling tasks. Customize appointment details, booking requirements, and specify services to streamline the booking experience. Integration with your Office 365 calendar helps to quickly find available time to avoid double-booking, and an easy to navigate webpage lets your constituents find and book appointments around the clock. Bookings helps you spend less time scheduling and more time meeting.
Use Microsoft Bookings to:
- Create and publish your services in a secure web form requiring Office 365 login, or a public facing page which does not require login
- Assign your staff to services, enter time off for staff, and create blocks of available times for your service(s), as well as block out times for vacation and sick time.
