Is it possible for me to customize my external URL for my bookings page?

Hi Ralph - Thanks for the feedback! We are evaluating a way to shorten it when you share it but eventually it will show the entire URL. You can vote for that feature at https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/314907-microsoft-bookings

I'm curious to know if you can at least change the name of the business in the URL.  I've changed the business name since I originally set up the booking page, but that original business name is still in the URL, even if I un-publish and re-publish the page.

I have this problem too and would really like a way to change the domain in the bookings URL.

Yes, this would be helpful. It would also be beneficial for those people who share the link privately (for one-off appointments), and need to occasionally change the URL to keep it private.

I would also like to change the URL

This is absolutely essential in order for Bookings to be competitive with other such services.   I find it ridiculous that this has not been solved in over a year.

However, I would recommend a quick fix until Microsoft gets their act together. www.bit.ly
Would using a service like Bitly to make a short URL work for this? This mashable posting seems to show that you can shorten the length of any long URL and also customize it with your own "branded" domain. https://mashable.com/2010/11/17/custom-short-url/#52wGDbwV3Oqb
