How can we improve Microsoft Bookings?

Text Messages

I think it would be great if I could send SMS reminders to my customers.

        This is a must! Our current booking system does that and if MS Bookings wants to succeed it must offer SMS reminders. And play with contact lists in SharePoint. But don't get me wrong - this is an *excellent* initiative for small businesses. Please continue to develop and support this program/app.

        +1 on this. The feature is of no value to a lot of small shops without the SMS feature, both for confirmation, but also as reminder, 1 day before the appointment.

        Most booking systems do allow this feature so this must be standard, even if that option is being able to select a 3rd party email to SMS service, thus avoiding need for MS to have their own SMS system.

        Text message / SMS reminders to staff for bookings at off-site locations (e.g., tutoring service, home repair, etc.)

        Text Reminders would be more valuable to our customers (as opposed to getting them via email).
