We've staff assigned as administrators in two Bookings calendars but they are unabe to access it (even if they can create new Bookings calendars).

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi 

Bookings is turned on by default for customers who have the Microsoft 365 Business Standard, or Microsoft 365 A3 and Microsoft 365 A5 subscriptions. Bookings is also available to customers who have Office 365 Enterprise E3 and Office 365 Enterprise E5, but it is turned off by default.

 

Please ensure your plan supports booking.

 

Hope that helps. 

Thank you @sagark92

Microsoft Bookings is turned on by default for the entire organization.
I have a Business Premium subscription and 4 Business Essentials subscriptions.
As admin, I cannot assign Bookings to individual users (of Business Essentials) because I can only grant access to 21 apps - and Bookings is not one of them.

I am having the same issue. A coworker created a Bookings Calendar and made me an admin for the Bookings but I can not access or find it. I only got an email stating I would be notified when a bookings took place. How as a admin do I access the settings of this Booking??

@twright32Having the exact same issue. Unsure if it is not functioning correctly if the way to access it is too obscure.

I'm having the same issue. Have set up a booking calendar and assigned staff as administrators, but they can't get into the Bookings calendar to adjust anything. Can someone please help? Thanks!

@ABjorkI am having the same issue as well. Hoping for an answer!

Same problem here. How did you solve the problem?
Did anyone get a response to this?
Did you get an answer?

@Sgriffith970I am not sure of the exact answer, but my IT people where I work said it had something to do with the way the global address book was setup in my company. This took months to figure out. If you can find something else that will do the same thing I would use it. Microsoft obviously provides little support on this product.

@Sgriffith970 Can you please check if the user who is not able to access the Bookings app has a valid Bookings license assigned? Please check the instructions listed here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/bookings/turn-bookings-on-or-off?view=o365-worldwide#... and assign licenses if the user does not have it already?

 

If the above does not help, can you help with few more details?

  1. Is the user able to login to https://bookings.office.com ?
  2. What is the error message they get when they try to access a Bookings calendar?
  3. Are they able to access any Bookings calendar or its failing for all?

If you could share more details about the issue you are facing, that will help us unblock you asap.

Thanks!

Yes it is turned on. It works on a desktop, and it links up. But when using the app it doesnt load the information. It tells us when updating on the app "failed to load bookings for this date. Please try again later'.  So you cant make bookings on the app and any appointments dont sync to the app.

By app, are you referring to the mobile apps? So, the users are able to access Bookings web app from bookings.office.com but when they go to mobile apps it fails to load?

 

Thanks,

I am referring to the mobile app that you download from the app store that has the black Bookings logo.
Yes users can access on the website on a laptop.
When on the mobile apps it fails to load or sync.
