  2. Share schedule with users who do not have Bookings

    We have some team members who may need to confirm appointment times for clients - it would be helpful to share a limited version of the calendar so they can provide clients with appropriate information.

  3. website customization

    I've seen some similar requests, but the one I saw that said it was "done" hasn't been done. You have added custom fields, but I want is the ability to add instructions or information to the top of the booking page. Widgets or other things that allow us to customize the look of the booking page and what it says and does would really help us cater it to our needs. Additionally, I would like the option to have service descriptions right under the service name, rather than having to click the (i) beside it to get this information.

  4. Can we please be able to enter re-curring weekly bookings?

    Weekly site meetings are a real pain to enter individually. Please can you add a 're-curring' weekly option.

  5. Email button in Bookings Calendar

    When you click on a booking in the Bookings calendar page having a button to email the customer would be much easier than having to go through the whole edit customer details area to get it.

  6. Allow customer to pick time on a service

    As a feature request, I’d like to be able to present my clients with a default meeting time but also a maximum meeting time. In other words, I would like it if the default could be set to 30 minutes but clients would have the ability via a dropdown menu on the booking details page to select a longer meeting time up to specified maximum if they know they’ll need more than the default (this ability to change the meeting duration on the fly would also justify the use of the word “default” in the booking form setup page).

  7. Require authentication before accessing a Bookings page

    It would be nice to have an option to require authentication (and limited to a group of people) in order to access a particular Bookings page.

    This allows for some services to be restricted and could prevent anonymous bookings from people attacking a site.

  8. The ability to edit the confirmation email that is sent to the staff

    I would like to modify the confirmation email that gets sent to the staff. Especially when it comes to additional customer input fields that are on the booking page. It'd be nice if they would appear on the email instead of navigating to find those customer added notes.

  9. Ability to Upload Prior Bookings

    I have used the outlook booking service for years. I want to be able to import my existing bookings into this program so I can fully switch to this and not have to utilize two systems.

  11. Potential issue when staff member cancels using their work Office 365 calendar.

    What if the staff member is ill and only cancels from his calendar? This means both the Administrator and the customer are not notified that the staff member is no longer available for the meeting. We tested this in a meeting today and no one was notified about the staff member's cancellation. It still showed up in Booking.

  12. Book different time for each week

    Book different timeslots for different weeks
    One week I might have night shift Monday and the next week on Wednesday. I wonder why the booking site only work on weekly repetitive timeslots instead of by dates in a calender like the front-end page. It is a hassle to use the (Free time function in the calendar to control this.)

  13. Booking for multiple locations

    Give the option to book the same service in multiple locations. For companies that have offices in two locations like ours, we want clients to be able to book an appointment with one of our partners in either location, depending on which one they are located. The office 365 calendar allows for location entry, and should be coordinated with bookings calendar.

  16. Search Field

    It would be nice to be able to search the calendar for specific people. A lot of times outside parties will call to see if someone has booked an appointment with our agency and there is not way to do a broad search for a specific person.

  17. 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.

    Direct links for specific services (say I wanted to book a one-on-one and that link to a client) All the other calendar booking services do this, please include this feature.

  19. Add an ongoing availability schedule for staff details (not just a weekly view)

    In the staff details with availability, instead of having a set schedule of one week for setting availability, it would be more helpful to have an ongoing calendar where you can change the staff person's availability for certain days and times. There are times when a regular schedule applies, but other times when it's just easier to block out certain days and times that don't flow with the regular schedule. Then you don't have to worry about people still being able to schedule because something was missed on your synced calendar because you can adjust it based on the actual…

  20. Text Notification on phone

    All other booking apps in the market have a text notification services. Microsoft booking only allows email notification about upcoming appointments. For a good customer services it better to have email and text notification as reminder to clients. Also an automatic phone call reminder will be an icing on the cake services. Please make this feature available on the Microsoft bookings
