Microsoft Bookings makes it easier for small businesses to schedule and manage appointments with their customers.

Last year, Microsoft released Microsoft Bookings to customers in the U.S. and Canada, introducing an easy way for small businesses to schedule and manage appointments with their customers.

Microsoft have also rolled out the service to Office 365 Business Premium subscribers worldwide. The main features include:

  • The ability to add your Office 365 calendar to Bookings, so that the times you are busy will automatically be blocked out on your public Booking page.
  • The ability to add buffer time before and after your appointments—Do you need prep time before or after an appointment? Adding buffer time to a service automatically blocks that time in your Booking page too.
  • Bookings apps for your iOS and Android phone—Now you can book an appointment, contact a customer or check a staff member’s appointments while away from the office.
  • Being able to customize your Booking page—with more colour customisation options, so you can better personalise your Booking page.

Spend less time scheduling

Bookings gives you a quick and easy alternative to scheduling appointments over the phone. A customisable public webpage lets your customers find available times and book appointments 24/7. You get a private calendar for managing your schedule, and automatic confirmations and reminders that save time.

Delight your customers

Customers will love the flexibility, convenience, and control they get with Bookings. Booking online simplifies scheduling and cuts down on phone tag. And for those customers who prefer to call, you can enter information manually and all confirmations and reminders will be sent as usual.

Try these sample booking pages to see what your customers will see when you start using Microsoft Bookings:

Enjoy fewer missed appointments

Reduce no-shows with automated reminders for customers and staff. Appointments appear on staff calendars as soon as they are made and are updated automatically. Customers can add appointments to personal calendars with just a few clicks. So, everyone knows where they need to be, and when.

Manage bookings on the go

Need to contact a customer about an appointment or reschedule on the fly? With the Bookings mobile app, you have full access to your customer, staff, and calendar info—where and when you need it. Use the app to easily email, call, or text customers, or create a new appointment with a few taps.

Bookings is designed to delight your customers, simplify scheduling and free time for you to be on top of your business wherever you are.
