Microsoft Bookings

Microsoft Bookings makes scheduling and managing appointments a breeze. Bookings include a web-based booking calendar that integrates with Outlook to optimize your staff’s calendar and give your customers the flexibility to book a time that works best for them. With built-in flexibility and the ability to customize, Bookings can be designed to fit the situation and needs of many different parts of an organization.

Bookings is also available as an app within Teams, which allows you to create Bookings calendars, assign staff, and both schedule new and manage existing appointments without ever leaving Teams.
