Simplify scheduling to save time
Meet virtually with Microsoft Teams
Make your Microsoft Bookings meetings virtual with Microsoft Teams. Every appointment booked as an online meeting creates a meeting link that everyone can join virtually from anywhere. Bookings is also available as an app within Teams to help you create calendars, assign staff, schedule new appointments, and meet without ever leaving Teams.
Customize appointments to your business needs
Microsoft Bookings has flexibility and customization options to fit a variety of scheduling needs across departments, individuals, and types of appointments. Create and manage multiple Bookings calendars, each with their own unique setup. Different calendars can have different page structures, information, staff, and types of appointments and communication.
Provide your clients flexibility, convenience, and control
Microsoft Bookings offers more options for your customers when they visit your booking page, book an appointment, or get a confirmation email and calendar invitation. Customers who book an appointment online can easily reschedule or cancel it themselves to keep everyone in sync. If you prefer to book appointments for your customers, enter the appointment details in Bookings so they receive confirmations and reminders. With Bookings, it’s also easy to track all changes made to appointments.

Online booking systems can save you and your business a lot of time and headaches that can come with trying to align schedules for appointments. An online scheduling tool makes it easy for people to see your calendar availability even if they are not in your organization. An online booking system can also prevent double booking with real time availability.
Planning ahead to schedule meetings and appointments is important to ensure you do not have overlapping appointments. Double bookings can cause clients frustration by having to wait for their meeting time while someone else is speaking with you. Scheduling meetings makes sure you are prepared for all of your meetings and not caught off guard.
Double booking is when someone has more than one meeting or appointment at the same time. To avoid double booking, a scheduling or booking tool should be used so that your availability is always up to date.
A cancellation policy can protect you and your business from customers who cancel at the last minute, leaving you with an open appointment and potentially costing you money. A cancellation policy should be clear at the time of booking and not be a surprise to consumers. A cancellation policy can help prevent people cancelling a the last minute or not showing up at all.
