Bookings is one of the easiest apps to adapt in office365 that brings the fastest and understandable business value for customers. For a half a year i'm planning my meetings only with Booking. www.bit.ly/AudriusEN

 

It would be a great feature to be able to add a type for consultation services as Teams Call and then the meeting will be sett up automatically after the booking and invite for a Teams Call would be sent too. I'm lacking that feature a lot! 

 

@Karolis_Urbanavicius @Tomas Trijonis @Robertas Tamosaitis @Tomas Ruzgys what do you think about this feature? :) 

 

I invite all the Microsoft Partners to join the conversation, because if someone ask me, how to provide understandable and comparable value in 10 min for a clients, i will always choose bookings :) If you are still checking the calendar times and writing emails to external tenant users - you are living in the yesterday. Today is Tomorrow :)

Yes, it would be beneficial feature for customers. Hope our team will make it. But for know, you can integrate bookings to Teams as additional tab. Not sure if we provide API for bookings, but if yes, then you can make an app for teams and have it right here.
This was promised in a Microsoft posting late last year, indicating that Skype for Business integration was ready, and that Teams integration would be early this year.

Like you, I use Bookings to schedule web conferences. Unfortunately, it is a painful work-around. I get the booking request, which puts it on my calendar. I then create a separate Teams meeting, and cut and paste the meeting info into the support ticket where I originally gave them the link to book an appointment with me.

What I want is what they said would be available early this year, and that is online meeting integration with Teams. If the appointment is with me, create a Teams meeting, and pass the meeting info on to the person who requested the appointment through the meeting confirmation sent by Bookings.

@David McKnight There must be a way of using Flow or Zapier to do that. I might give it a try

@Audrius Martinkus  I have a solution for this that works great!  The Teams link is the same one that is sent with every meeting. I took that link (shortened it) using bit.ly And added that in the details for every service on your booking page.  When the client gets the meeting invitation it already has that link in it. So its a super simple solution! That way no duplicate work is needed. 

 

I hope this helps everyone! 

@Andy_N1320 if you don't mind everyone using the same meeting, and are not concerned about privacy, that DOES work. I had been doing that for months, only to have an unexpected "guest" show up one day. Since then, I have created the private Teams meeting for each client appointment. Now it just needs to do it automatically.

 

Microsoft has another booking assistant called FindTime, which according to the docs WILL create an online meeting. The only problem with this is that you have to send out the meeting request via email, rather than having the client select a date and time they want to book the meeting. If they could just get both (all three?) systems to work together, it would be amazing.
