It’s been over 2 years since we launched Bookings and it has been an incredible journey with millions of bookings made across businesses of all types and sizes. During this time, we listened to your feedback (thanks for using UserVoice!) and learned a lot about your needs. These insights have been critical in helping us prioritize our work and our new feature investments.
Based on what you told us, we are improving Bookings in 4 areas – enterprise grade controls, customization, integrations, and the Bookings mobile app. Let’s take a look at what each one entails.
Check the box labeled “Require an Office 365 account from my organization to book” to require users authenticate before they can access a booking page.
When the booking page owner adds a staff member they’ll see a callout that added staff will be notified
Enter three- or six-digit color codes to specify the highlight and header colors of your booking page
Support for iPad – We now support iPad and landscape view, so if you use your iPad as your point-of-sale system OR mainly use it in landscape view, Bookings rotates, as expected, and gives you a much better user experience.
We hope these features help you better manage your bookings. We are rolling them out in various stages over the next few months for Targeted Release customers and will GA shortly after that. If you are a Business Premium customer, a Microsoft 365 Business customer, or have an education (EDU) paid license (A3 or A5), Bookings is on-by-default for your organization and users can start creating booking pages. If you are an enterprise customer with an E3, E5, or Microsoft 365 Enterprise, Bookings must be enabled by the organization’s admin and assign licenses per user. You can learn how to do this in the Get access to Microsoft Bookings support article here.
Please, keep giving us feedback in our UserVoice channel because this helps prioritize our work with what you need in Bookings.
