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.
serious flaw... if microsoft wants to increase usage they will update this asap. very disappointed in the oversight of such a basic feature.
As a developer, this is a complete oversight on Microsoft's part. For every RSVP/Scheduling type application I've built from scratch, a simple email notification to staff members is the number one requested feature. A Bookings email gets sent to the business email. Why not the staff of the respective appointment? Doesn't make sense.
This feature really needs to be added - right now it is far too easy to get a booking and not spot it in advance.
If I set a reminder with 2 weeks in advance, will it send a reminder if the meeting was booked less than 2 weeks in advance?
There is a workaround that could work for you. When you set up a service, there is an option for "reminders" right underneath the "Notes(internal only)" box.
You can set that with up to 2 weeks in advance, and the system will send an email reminder to whoever you choose (staff or customer or both).
You can set up as many reminders as you want.
