Recurring appointments in MS Bookings

MS Bookings has a lot of potential for staff in the office to have one consolidated calendar for appointments. One feature missing is the inability for staff to schedule recurring appointments for customers. While this feature shouldn't be available for the customers, it should be available for staff to document recurring PT, counseling sessions, etc. Having to manually enter a session every 2 weeks for 4 months is definitely a hinderance to utilizing the full capability of the product.

Agreed, the ability to add recurring appointments would be a game-changer. We did testing with Bookings for a research project but cannot use it without the ability to make recurring appointments.

yes I could not agree more - we can not use the bookings calendar until this option is available - it seems like it should be an easy add-in?  Just setup Cortana schedular but just found out it is being discountinued in Sept 2023. Other solutions?

Agree, this would be a tremendous improvement. We may have to stop using it without this. It makes it pretty untenable for the schedules we're trying to manage.


This would be a useful feature to add please

Been looking at this to book equipment out and for users to book time with the tech support team at our school. This would be really useful and is the one feature it seems to be missing at the moment. If this goes well looking to use it for other departments too.

We are running a non-profit neurorehabilitation centre for children. We wanted to make the bookings convenient for our clients (and save time on our site). Since we are already signed up for Office 365 business, the Microsoft bookings seemed a good choice as everything was integrated and in sync. Unfortunately, the bookings turned out to be a nightmare for our team, as NOT even the admins could set up recurring bookings. Setting up appointments for each client manually requires a lot of time that we could spend on more critical tasks. It is ridiculous how Microsoft didn't make at least the admins able to manage such things since 2020! The cherry on top, Microsoft disabled the Microsoft UserVoice service, so we cannot even join others to request the recurring booking feature. Such disappointment.

We're an educational institution and we use Bookings for our buses, boardrooms, and other specialised areas. Upon occasion, we'd need to book out a space for 1 or 2 terms (semesters) so creating recurring bookings is an absolute necessity. Please Microsoft look into this with some urgency.
