  1. Booking type - Add event type

    Allow other types of bookings, the appointment doesn’t accommodate training/education bookings.

    It would be useful to be able to create x amount of events, that customers could book.

    As a education / training facility, I would prefer to create X amount of training sessions 6 months ahead.

    The event type bookings, should also be displayed in a list form, for customers to book on the booking site.

    Event type booking, would allow other types of businesses to use bookings.

  2. Allow customers to add booking to their calendars

    After a customer has made a booking online, there should be an option for them to add it to their calendar (Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail, iCal etc..)

  3. Follow ups for appointments & availability.

    In Bookings I would like to see an option for follow ups after appointment. An option where you can send text or other documentation after appointment is completed. Also, an option to schedule up to a specific amount of appointments per hour or so (i.e. 10 appointments for every 1 hour like 10a, then after 10 have scheduled move to next hour. And last an option to mark as n appointment as "no show" and send an automatic request in email to reschedule or mark as "cancel & reschedule". Thank you.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow customer to pick time on a service

    As a feature request, I’d like to be able to present my clients with a default meeting time but also a maximum meeting time. In other words, I would like it if the default could be set to 30 minutes but clients would have the ability via a dropdown menu on the booking details page to select a longer meeting time up to specified maximum if they know they’ll need more than the default (this ability to change the meeting duration on the fly would also justify the use of the word “default” in the booking form setup page).

  6. You need to place a "MANAGE BOOKINGS" on EVERY email sent to a Customer.

    You need to place a "MANAGE BOOKINGS" on EVERY email sent to a Customer....NEW, Reminders, etc..They shouldn't have to go to original email to reschedule or cancel. Even have option on their posted appointment in their calendar device.

  7. Require authentication before accessing a Bookings page

    It would be nice to have an option to require authentication (and limited to a group of people) in order to access a particular Bookings page.

    This allows for some services to be restricted and could prevent anonymous bookings from people attacking a site.

  8. Embed Bookings into Outlook

    Embed Bookings into Outlook on Desktop versions and web so office staff can book appointments directly from outlook, in lieu or alongside its calendar.

  9. Support viewing multiple booking calendars at once

    For businesses with multiple booking calendars (locations is a good example), they would like to see all of the calendars on a single screen instead of switching between them.

  10. Search the calendar for customer appointments

    It should be possible to search the bookings calendar for customers and their appointments. When a Customer asks me to tell him his next appointment, I am not able to find it out.

  12. Allow service specific links

    I'd like to be able to post or share targeted links to a specific service, rather than requiring customers to select the "right" service.

    I could imagine something like:

    https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/MicrosoftCloudandEnterprise@service.microsoft.com/bookings/service1
    https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/MicrosoftCloudandEnterprise@service.microsoft.com/bookings/service2

  13. Allow for Transparency in Logo

    Why can't I upload a transparent Logo to display on the themes colors? Why do I have to choose a background color for the image and then a separate background color for the banner it displays on?

    Please add a "transparent" Color option for the company logo.

  14. Unique URL for a single service

    Want to be able to send a unique url to a customer to book a particular service. Not send them to the generic Bookings pages where they have to navigate to the service you have already determined they require.

  15. Restrict Services Availability To Certain Days Or Times

    Just like we can assign availability for Staff, please allow us to assign availability for each of our Services. For example, there are certain Services that we only offer during certain times of day. At first, we thought that would just create a Staff member that was only "available" during that time of day. However, the problem is that our Staff member can also perform other services, so we want them available for all services. We really need Bookings to block or include availability on a Service level as well.

    Be able to set number of bookings per staff member or resource per time period. i.e A staff member/resource could take 10 customers at a time.

    This could be for a minibus business, taxi, Tour of a factory or premises. so the booking for that time period would still be available until the maximum number of customer slots is filled.

    also allow the customer to stipulate the number of slots/spaces that they would like to book at the time of booking. i.e. a bus book 4 out of 10 seats available, a tour a group of 5 book for 20…

  17. Send booking notifications to staff in addition to email listed in Business Information

    It can be hard for staff members to know they have received a booking since they only receive a calendar invite and in outlook that goes directly to the deleted folder. What would help is to also send the staff member a notification similar to what is sent to the email contact listed in the Business Information.

  18. Data export for analysis & review

    It would be great if we can export the calendar for analysis purpose. It can either by week, by month or by year to see the pattern

  20. Auto fill out customer form if they are logged in on your network.

    We want to use this as a way to book shared resources at our work. We all have office 365 accounts so automatically filling out customer info when booking would make life easier for those booking the resource.
