Add option to autogenerate MS Teams meeting/link when appointment is created through Bookings
Add an option so that when users book an appointment using Microsoft Bookings, they get a link to an autogenerated Teams meeting.
Currently, when users book an appointment, I have to then set up a second event at the same time with the meeting link, which is time-consuming and potentially confusing.

Is it possible to have this show up to use Skype instead of Teams?

This feature is now working. Thanks Microsoft!

This should have been released by now. It's a deal breaker for using bookings. My clients book a session online and then I have to send them a new meeting invitation with the Team link. So unprefossional unprofessional.

This is a natural requirement! We NEED this!

I currently see the online meeting toggle on my service page! I think it's working!

I currently add the link to my Webex personal room as the default location for a remote meeting. I'm trying to ditch Webex but don't have that option to use Teams instead.

This was available in our tenant for a while; I was able to turn it on for one of our services.
Perhaps something wasn't perfect (e.g. no dial-in number for the Teams meeting was sent to the customer) and now it seems they've removed it.
Now I cannot turn it on for any other services nor can I turn it OFF for the one services I enabled it for before it went away...
Andrew Pike commented
Got a notification in the message centre saying that this would be available by mid-September, and the help page says there should be a toggle on the "services" page, but no such toggle exists!
Under this heading: Add online meeting option to bookings
It says how to simply toggle this service on and off. However, there is no such option. Microsoft? whats going on?

200% Agree, trying to get this done and figure it out today.
My organization no longer uses Webex or a static conference line, so I have to go ahead and send a Teams meeting to that other attendee every time they book a meeting.
If Teams meetings + conference line, provided a unique phone number + conference code for every user, i could keep that on the meeting as the location, but they dont.

How is this proceeding? Earlier here was a view where we were told this Teams / Skype appointment link to Bookings would be released in Q3/2019 but now there's nothing to see how this is proceeding? Hopefully this would come soon!

Or the ability to add other VC services to the appointment.
On 12/17/2018 at this link:
Look for "3. Integrations" and read the following...
"Online meeting support – Do you use Skype for Business for online meetings and want to use Skype for your bookings? We are adding Skype for Business support to Bookings and will follow that up with support for Teams meetings, early next year. This will let you easily turn your bookings into online meetings."
Can't wait! Well, actually have been. Hopefully soon?
AND HEY! It's happening. Just saw this:
Went on to the formal roadmap mid-July is scheduled to roll-out in August, so they must have made some good progress on it!
I schedule webinars with my customers and prospect. I'd like to reply with a team meetings invite. Otherwise, I have to use Zoom or join.me etc. Please link bookings with team meetings!

I also require this option in order to move to Bookings. If it can automatically send a meeting invitation, it should be able to send a Teams meeting invitation.
I agree. I should have to follow up meeting requests with dial in details. I dont require an intergration but a space for each staff member to insert their personal room URL.
Erik Nicolai commented
This makes us stay on Calenly with Join.me and prevents us from switching to Bookings.
For every sceduled meeting we automatically create a unique meeting in join.me that is added to the calendar item. So the invite also inlcudes the conference details.
Hope this helps.
