Microsoft Bookings
Microsoft Bookings can make scheduling and managing appointments incredibly easy.  We recently utilized it to book service appointments for our network team and thought it could be a valuable tool for our clients and partners.  It can be used to send out links to allow members to book membership calls or for a manager to book reviews or periodic meetings. Bookings includes a web-based booking calendar and integrates with Outlook to optimize your staff’s calendar and give your customers or staff flexibility to book a time that works best for them also reducing the time spent scheduling, reducing no-shows thru confirmation emails and enhancing overall customer satisfaction. Bookings provides you the ability to make your organization’s meetings virtual with online meetings via Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business. Each appointment booked as an online meeting creates a unique meeting link that is sent to attendees so they can join via a web browser, phone dial-in, or the Skype or Teams app. Bookings is also available as an app within Teams, which allows you to create Bookings calendars, assign staff, and both schedule new and manage existing appointments without ever leaving Teams.  For more information on how you can utilize Microsoft Bookings, please reach out to our Network Team.
