Option to let the customer choose from a list of locations on the booking page
There are cases when we'd like to offer multiple options for location to the customer (webinar, phone, their place, our place etc.).

we also have a number of locations offering the same service, but different staff in that location. if you are going to improve the location offering you will need to be able to assign people to each of the locations as well as to the service being offered

You could simply specify the location in the service?
Service 1 @ location 1
Service 1 @ location 2
Service 1 @ location 3
Service 2 @ location 2
We have multiple satellite offices throughout the city and staff assigned to manage 2-5 offices, where we offer the same services.
So I may have a meeting at location A, could take an appointment right after at location A, then need 30 minutes to travel to Location B where I have one meeting, and then to Location C. The individual should choose the location nearest them.
I'm fine with either a fixed travel time (ie: add a 1hr buffer when a location change is needed) or of course it could leverage Bing Maps to figure out a travel time of 30 minutes and then add my usual 15 minute after buffer.
This is really the only thing bookings needs in my mind.
PS: A location could be "via telephone" and that's okay.

Brandi: If Microsoft is not able to offer you the ability for your customers to book into your webinar, you might want to try evite.com. I have used evite.com to manage customer signups for in person and web seminars. evite.com offers a superior experience for organizers and attendees. Just something to consider if Microsoft does not meet your needs.
In the interim I created 2 calendars one for each location with 2 separate links on my website... sort of works
I would like the ability for my customers to book into a webinar that I have scheduled on a specific day.
I have three locations, Booking app is not give the option to set my three locations, and also all my Cloud clients, like skype, webinar, etc

My business is completely online and I use exclusively Skype for Business. I would like to have the option for a Skype for Business meeting. Otherwise Bookings is not useful to my business.
John Smith commented
I agree. I also think Skype should be an option.
