Hello Partners!

 

  Are you looking for a way to let your customers, or even potential customers book time with you and/or one of your staff members?  Perhaps you have a customer that is looking for a solution Out of the Box that accomplishes this same functionality? We have released a new feature called Microsoft Bookings in the last couple of weeks that allows you to do just this.  Now before we go too much further it is important to note that as of the writing of this blog, you can only get this with an Office 365 Business Premium plan.  There is already work in progress to bring this same functionality to the E SKUs but for now it’s exclusive to the Business Premium plan.

Bookings is now rolling out in First Release to customers who subscribe to the Office 365 Business Premium plan and will roll out to all Business Premium customers worldwide in the coming months. Once it rolls out, anyone with an Office 365 Business Premium subscription can access Bookings in the app launcher within the Office 365 web experience. Bookings doesn’t require your business email to be routed through Office 365, so you can keep using your current business email service with no changes.

To get started, sign in to Office 365, open Bookings from the app launcher and then click the Get it now button. You’ll need to provide a bit of information about your business and the services you want your customers to book. After that, just click the Save and publish button in the booking page tab to publish your scheduling web page. Your customers will now be able to start booking appointments with your business. It’s that easy!

Take a look and see what is available!  Would love to hear if you are going to be able to leverage this new service to make your business, or your customer’s business that much more productive.

Till Next Time,

Garrett

    Thanks very much Garrett. Question: what happens when your O365 installation has subscriptions of every flavour, inclusive of Business Premium? Do they still get the Bookings option, or does the whole site have to be Business Premium?
