Microsoft Bookings is now available to Office 365 Business Premium subscribers worldwide with new features in the bag. Users can now add their Office 365 calendar to Bookings, add buffer time before and after appointments and customise the Booking page. What’s even better, the Bookings app can now be downloaded on your iOS and Android smartphone.
When you add your 365 calendar to Bookings, the system automatically blocks busy times on the Bookings calendar so you won’t get double-booked.
For users that require some prep time beforehand, the new buffer time feature allows you to prepare yourself for your next appointment. During these times, your customers will not be able to book an appointment right before your next appointment or right after.
Finally, the fact that you can have access to Bookings while you’re on the go should improve your productivity anytime, anywhere. With the Bookings mobile app, users can view and manage the Bookings calendar, create and edit bookings, see real-time availability and whereabouts of your staff, respond to customers with booking easily, get directions to your next bookings and access your customer list.
