Last March, at Ignite, we gave you a preview of the new powerful and customizable Bookings experience and starting today, we are rolling it out to everyone!

 

To turn on the new experience, toggle the switch on the top right corner of the Bookings home page.

Once you’re in the new Bookings view, you’ll see the new experience which introduces many new capabilities in Microsoft Bookings.

The new Bookings has more options to customize and better controls on each staff's role

 

If you need to go back to the classic version, you can flip the toggle back and forth as often as you need.

Now that the preview is live, we wanted to highlight some of the key features of Bookings and what new experiences you’ll be seeing.

Compliance, Privacy and Tighter Controls

We understand that each organization is different and has varied needs for managing appointments. Bookings now has stricter administrative controls, and each user within Bookings has varied levels of control over how calendars are created, edited, and shared as well as how appointments can be booked.

Microsoft 365 Admins

Admins can now control who has access to Bookings, whether external users can book appointments, and if staff details can be shared with customers.

Admins can also control the privacy of the customers' booking appointments and can restrict what information can be collected when making a booking, like phone numbers, email, or contact address. Additionally, they can prevent staff members from requesting customer information by blocking the creation of custom fields.

Bookings Admins

Bookings admins have controls to ensure their organization’s compliance and privacy standards. They can restrict appointments to users within the organization and can also restrict search engine listings. Admins can also configure data usage consent with their own custom message, privacy policy link, as well as add terms and conditions information on the Bookings page.

New Roles

To ensure that the correct staff members have the adequate access to Bookings’ pages, two new roles have been created.

  • Team Member - this role allows a staff member to view and edit their own calendar but not anyone else’s.
  • Scheduler - this role allows staff members to schedule appointments without being able to modify services or settings. In addition to ensuring tighter access control, these roles unburden the Bookings admin from day-to-day operations.

Customization & Branding

Bookings allows organizations to customize their Bookings page with their own logo. A color theme that best suits the organization can be chosen as well. Confirmations, cancellations, and reminders can be customized using a rich text editor.

Simpler Scheduling

We’ve strived to make appointment scheduling as simple as possible. Admins can add multiple staff members and get a unified view across all their calendars and availability. Switching between multiple calendars is made easier with an option to filter by staff members and services. There is also an option to pin a specific calendar for easier tracking.

Admins can navigate to a staff member profile directly from the calendar and get a comprehensive view of their scheduled meetings, contact information, and services offered.

Custom availability can be set for each staff member with multiple slots in a day and certain days marked as non-available. This is synced with the staff’s Outlook calendar to avoid double bookings. Additionally, appropriate lead time can be configured for each service to ensure that staff members are well prepared before an appointment. There’s also an option to add buffer time before and after an appointment to provide sufficient breathing time.

 

Coming soon

Today, Microsoft Bookings is used by thousands of organizations globally to manage their appointments inside and outside their organization. It is used across various industries to enable different scenarios like virtual classrooms, financial consulting, and tele-health.

 

To read more on how customers are using Bookings for these scenarios, please click here.

 

As Bookings continues to grow and evolve, we are committed to building new features and capabilities which can further improve the Bookings experience and empower organizations to manage their calendars and appointments better.

Admin Toolkit

We want organizations to have more control over how Bookings is used by their staff members. The admin toolkit will provide admins with granular control over the naming policy, logo, business hours, staff availability and other aspects of Bookings within their organization.

Scalability

We talked about scaling Bookings for large demand in an earlier post here. We are working hard on improving Bookings to handle more scale so that Bookings continues to work well across various scenarios like virtual meetings, consultations, and other types of appointments.

Customized Scheduling

Availability of staff members keeps changing based on personal and business needs. We want to provide granular access to admins and staff members to customize the staff availability for appointments well into the future.

Richer APIs

While we continue to improve Bookings, we also want to allow organizations to build on top of the Bookings platform and develop custom solutions which are more suited to their needs. Bookings APIs are currently available in preview as part of Microsoft Graph APIs and will soon be generally available.

As always, we welcome your feedback. Let us know if you have any scenarios you’d like to see us support in the future.

 

Thanks!

 

Teja

I cannot see the New Experience toggle on my bookings home screen, is there anything needed to allow this to be viewed?  

Contributor

We have enjoyed being a part of the private preview. Looking forward to the "new experience" rolling out to production. Especially excited about the possibility of the Admin Toolkit.

It's nice to see effort going into bookings.  There really need to be an option to limit times only to either on the hr or half past.  Currently if one appt on your calendar starts at an odd time, it throws off all available time slots that are presented.  One one wants to start their meetings at 10:10 or 10:55.

@Teja Vinukollu , what about integration with Power Automate? Something like "When a new booking is created" will make a big difference in the potential of the product.

Occasional Visitor

Power Automate integration as a TOP priority please! I want to capture the data and send it to Dynamics 365 as a Lead so we do lots of automation to nurture the lead. Without this, Bookings is interesting and kinda useful. Power Automate would elevate it to wow, this is AMAZING!

Valued Contributor

I don't see the toogle either.

Will be interesting to see all the new changes and if I can incorporate them as well.

 

I recently implemented the Bookings service for a corporate COVID vaccination initiative at our local vaccination center. Worked quite alright for a "free" service to be honest. Tough it was a little tricky to setup up the proper amount of bookable slots. 

Occasional Contributor

Somehow missed the original announcement, so this was a lovely surprise!   I can't wait to put it through its paces.

Senior Member

The feature with the most votes currently in the User Voice for Bookings is "Allow appointments with multiple staff members." (Allow an outsider to book 2 or more people at once, at times they are free. Not book one or the other.) Is this included in this release? It doesn't look like it from this announcement. Is this in the roadmap? Can someone from Microsoft please comment here or on the user voice idea - knowing if this will be done or not determines if we should purchase something else to achieve this or not.

Hi Microsoft. Great to hear about the new experience. 
Our organization offers training courses, but the clients need to see the number of available seats for each course on the booking page. This is a standard functionality with other booking tools. Please give us an update weather this is planned or not. 

New Contributor

I got the toggle to try the new bookings on our test tenant (targeted release)
But I noticed the new admin center settings are not yet available.
Any additional infos on that @Teja Vinukollu ?

Microsoft

Is this available for Office 365 Government Community Cloud (GCC)?  If not, is it roadmapped and if so, when will it be available?

Senior Member

All sounds great but didn't get far before I hit an issue... where can we provide feedback?

 

Issue: Trying to save Business Information claiming email address is outside org (and it isn't)

@mhcg_mark  I can't tell by your comment when you get that message. Are you trying to enter the business information for the Booking calendar? We are a regional bank and we do have to allow the email addresses assigned to the bookings to send external email. Otherwise the booking creates a user account that normally only is available within our tenant.

Senior Member

@SusanMcClements No, Business Information that appears on link https://outlook.office.com/bookings/settings/businessinformation. The email address in there has been there a while, I only (tried) to update the 'Business type' field and hit Save then got that error. Clearly a bug, shame we can't report it officially to get it fixed.

Contributor

@Teja Vinukollu Look at @mhcg_mark issue which he believes is a bug and the pilot preview might be able to investigate further. 

New Contributor

@Teja Vinukollu I don't have the toggle, what can I do?

 

Also, I have the same question as @willscarbrough The feature with the most votes currently in the User Voice for Bookings is "Allow appointments with multiple staff members." (Allow an outsider to book 2 or more people at once, at times they are free. Not book one or the other.) Is this included in this release?  Can someone from Microsoft please comment here or on the user voice idea?
