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.
Yes! 100% I'm currently exploring Bookings for online training sessions especially now in COVID. Doesn't seem to yet be a perfect fit for us.
Like you, I'd like to be able to schedule future events, set sessions and max numbers - it would be great to then specify a online link for each also. We use GoToWebinar for training currently as Teams doesn't support sending the recordings externally or automatically after a sessions, so that would complete the booking for us!
To add to that some Power Automate features would also be great to streamline the training/booking admin. Other trainers on this thread will appreciate the admin in this also!
Think we'll have to explore other options for now but would really love to be able to use the 365 package to its fullest!

An additional consideration is the number of seats available for a booking.

Yes! We offer repeating monthly classes and would love to use this so students can register for the class. Your competitor, Setmore, has this functionality so it is definitely feasible.

Yes - being able to define a 'session' which is ONLY available at certain dates/times would be great, currently the assumption is 'always available unless you say otherwise', and for many situations that needs reversing.
On Weds 23rd, from 6pm to 8pm, you can book THIS type of appointment.
Even better for events would be to be able to define a session/type of event for which there are N seats available (a user could book 1, or for a group)
Better still would be a 'multi day event' - i.e. if you sign up, you are booking a place on monday and tuesday from 9am to 5pm on monday, and 9am until 1pm on tuesday
Ells this can not be opreationel for operational users.

This is almost a necessity for our business.
We have big events every couple months, and we would use this service as a pre- register roster.
