Integrate my personal calendar with the Bookings calendar

I would like for my own O365 calendar to impact the availability of my time on the booking calendar.

    Hi all, the feature has completed rolling out and you should see a new checkbox for each staff member in the staff details form to turn the feature on. More detailed instructions are here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Sync-staff-s-personal-calendar-with-Microsoft-Bookings-23ee9b4c-0241-40ff-b663-67a309c378f8

    If you’re still not seeing the option please email us at bookingsuv@microsoft.com

    Thank you,
    Microsoft Bookings Team

        Can someone confirm the behaviour for this enhancement? I have multiple calendars setup in Office 365 but it appears to only be checking against the primary calendar.

        Calendly allows me to select which calendars I would like to block out etc. This feature would be very useful and it stopping me from switched to bookings for my business.

        I really want to implement this but I cannot find where to synchronize my office calendar with the bookings calendar. Can someone help me with this issue?????

        We are trying to implement bookings but are waiting for this feature breathlessly...any updates since coding was completed 3 weeks ago?

        I just looked at my account and it's not rolled out yet. I might also suggest that since it's a checkbox, that you add this as checked as a default and not make admins have to go search for it when they add a user to a Bookings page.

        This is huge for me. Without it, I can't really use Bookings! When will it be available?

        HI, tech support directed me to this page after verifying that this feature has just started rolling out. It was suggested to comment here to find out more about the roll out schedule. Thanks!

        The option to activate it is not available so for me. How long will rolling out take? Another 6 months? :-)

        Great news re integration! Will there be an announcement in each account to tell us that it's active? Any descriptions of functionality so we can begin to design our work flows? Thanks

        Just had to go into Bookings to block out YET ANOTHER meeting after scheduling time on my personal calendar. It takes twice as long to get any scheduling done with this solution. If I had known that "final touches" took 2 months to complete I would have used a different product. Can we get a reasonable timeframe estimate for completion on this?

        Really feeling like this is taking A VERY LONG Time to happen. Can't you just buy another technology that already has this integrated into outlook or gmail? still waiting....

        We would be all over Bookings and integrating it into our org's website, if it had the ability to confirm availability with our Outlook Calendar.

        yeah - the first comment nailed it....until this is implemented, its pretty much useless. calendly works great.
