Thank you :folded_hands: for your continued investments in Bookings! Such a versatile solution. Eagerly awaiting enhanced reporting (especially around no shows).

@Teja Vinukollu 

 

Are there any API's or management functionality available to automate or create a provisioning solution for bookings?

This would be important to have a consistent naming convention for the AAD account.

Hi, @uzhxhqyd39 

 

Are you looking at something like "Naming Policy" for M365 Groups? If so, we have this in backlog and we will be working on this ask later this year.

 

We do have APIs today but are currently in Beta. Our plan is to promote them to GA later this year. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/booking-api-overview?view=graph-rest-beta

 

Thanks,

Teja

 

@Teja Vinukollu thanks for the preview video.
I have question about managing multiple booking calendars.

Lets say in a big company someone manages 10 or more booking calendars.
Currently you have a dropdown menu with "New" and "Open" to open an existing booking calendars. But its not showing you a list of them. You need to know the names of all the calendars which you are manageing. It would be great if there could be some improvement there, like list or selection of all the calendars where you are the admin. Or also when you are a team member etc.

Also all these new things in the preview video, is there any timeline for that?

 

@alex_ha19 Absolutely. This is work in progress. Will be available by the end of next quarter.

@Teja Vinukollu Why you use this way to embed the videos - I prefer absolutely youtube. It is much more faster than this. And I can download the video. I often watch not the complete video, I like to press the right arrow button often to get an overview. But this is not possible with this videos. :(

Has video stream progressed through this 5G upgrade and what is expected of Big Data in near future? I don't expect an answer right away. I do believe there are many other upgrades.
