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!
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 :)

@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.
Still standing by...

I'm still using the manual method of sending a separate meeting with a MS Teams links to anyone who booked with me. I noticed in your calendar (https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/AudriusMartinkusEN@mokomiejifilmai.lt/bookings/) you have services labeled "Microsoft Teams call", have you already figured a way to automatically add MS Teams webmeetings ?
Thanks a lot!

This is old, but I had same issue, and was googling, and found this page. FYI.. Books app now can book as teams.
I was going to do same thing you did, but luckily I found a single check mark that says online meetings.
its not even in the settings. Its in
Service, than click on the service, and in there there is a check mark for online meetings and save.
Than wait about upto 30 mins to reflect changes.
Now when your clients create booking with you. They will get the email with a teams meeting invite.

@Kevin Truongthanks a lot! I am quite sure, I have not seen this option earlier - was it "silently" added.
I tested briefly and booked a meeting, and a Microsoft Teams -join link was automatically added, works as expected!

@Kevin Truong Hello Kevin, could you share where to find the "Services" tab or info? I could not locate that to turn this feature (Teams meeting included in bookings) on.

ah-ha, I found it finally. Somehow in ours, it is hidden in "Appointment Type" (as Service). You can find that "Add Online Meeting" toggle in an existing Appointment type, when you click on "Edit" (the pen)
