  1. Custom availability by service.

    Each session should have it's own settings for times available, with the option to default to the primary schedule. That way on weeks where are out of the office some, you can create a custom schedule of availability, and on normal weeks, you can default to the master availability.

  2. Allow customized emails to be sent as reminders and for follow up

    I dont want the email that is sent to be a canned cheap email- I want it to be a custom email sent by my designer. Also want it to automatically send a follow up email that pushes users to our social media platforms to leave reviews

  4. Comfirmation sent to client only after approved by me

    Once the client books, I should get be able to get an email to Accept, Decline or Suggest Another Time option. If I accept then, only then should the client get a confirmation email. If I decline, the client should get an email stating that the booking has not been confirmed. If I suggest a different time, then the client should get an email and given the choice of approving, declining or suggest another time for the booking.

  5. Language selectable

    We work on an international market. The comany is dutch but the reservations are made by germans and french. Make the booking site language selectable otherwise the product is useless to us!

  6. Have an option for no price shown at all for clients who pay an ongoing fee

    We have clients that pay a fee for all of our services so having an option to not showing anything under price (checkbox to include or not include) would be hugely helpful.

  7. Focus more on internal use

    Microsoft Bookings is great, but it lacks the functionality for internal use.

    Users (Managers) should be able to create recurring bookings/services/shift-types/duties/events, etc... as well as allocating to members of staff, which is then automatically reflected in that staff member's Staff Hub.

    It's great that Microsoft has focused on small businesses, however not all small businesses are 9-5 but work flexibly to meet the demands of their services, with employees/staff paid soley for that booking.

  8. Let me specify "time on" as well as time off

    There are cases where I would just like to have a couple of slots availability to be booked but I don't want to change my "business hours" to reflect this. It would be nice to allow me to specify "time on" just like I can block out time using the time off feature.

  9. Set service hours like you can set business hours. F

    For services have the ability to set business hours. For example, you only offer consulting services in the mornings from 9 am - 11 am. And in the afternoon you offer tours from 1 pm - 4 pm.

    Make it similar to the business hours pages just within the services section.

  10. Publish the Bookings Calender to a HTML link.

    Ability to Publish the Bookings Calender to see where everyone is without being a Admin.
    Publish it to a HTML link the same as you can publish an outlook calender.
    It can then be shown on a TV in the office.

  11. One-time links

    It would be nice to be able to send someone a booking link that only works once. In some professions, we don't have an open booking policy, but want to privately send a client a link to book an appointment. We don't want the client to be able to re-use that link at a whim, as is the current system. Links that expire, or can be used once, would be one way to handle this.

  12. Allow bookings for one staff with multiple locations

    I have staff who work in multiple locations and need to differentiate which days appointments can be made at each location but still be linked to their one calendar.

  13. Add "Company Name" to Customer Form

    When I get a booking I get the following info.

    Name:
    Email:
    Phone Number:
    Address:

    If I want to capture the company name, I have to add it as a custom field and it displays in a separate section of the form.
    If the user misses the custom required field the message says:

    "Missing information
    Some required information is missing
    Please provide the following:
    Required additional information"

    Adding a Company field would resolve this and make to form submission process more streamlined for those of us booking appointments with companies, not just individuals.

  19. Ability to Mark different statuses.

    We'd like to be able to mark/export the status of the Booking. We need to know if someone attended, rescheduled, no-showed, etc. This would be very helpful for our processes.
