Save Time When Scheduling with Microsoft Bookings
Simplify scheduling to save time, plan your workday accordingly and avoid the tedious task of fumbling with calendars.
How much time does it take to coordinate a meeting? How much of this can be measured as Activity vs. productivity? There are many scheduling software solution companies out there. Perhaps you’ve tried a product like Calendly in the past, but weren’t aware that a Bookings license is included with most Microsoft 365 license types? Below we’ve included a quick overview of Microsoft Bookings, and the potential time savings it can bring to you and your team.
Bookings automates tracking, managing, and organizing your team’s appointments and calendars all in one place. Integrated with your existing Microsoft 356 and Teams, you can create a Bookings calendar and add team members to it, build new appointment types, and create and manage in-person and virtual visits for your staff and attendees. We’ve all seen 8..9..12 emails fly back and forth only to set a single calendar meeting. Bookings helps to automate this process.
What is Microsoft Bookings and why does it make scheduling and managing appointments a breeze? Bookings includes a calendar integrated with Outlook to optimize your staff and give your customers flexibility to book a time that works best for them. Email and SMS text notifications reduce no-shows and enhances customer satisfaction. Your organization saves time with a reduction in repetitive scheduling tasks. With built-in flexibility and the ability to customize, Bookings can be designed to fit the situation and needs of many different parts of an organization.
