How to Create a Microsoft Bookings page to manage appointments

Microsoft Bookings is an online and mobile app for small businesses who provide services to customers on an appointment basis. Examples of businesses include hair salons, dental offices, and auto shops, however, faculty can also use Bookings to manage appointments with students. We have access to Bookings from our Microsoft 365 accounts. View this video for a demonstration on getting started with Bookings (1:52) or follow the steps below.

    • The Business Information page allows you to enter your office address, phone number, and email. This is also where you'll set the hours that you want students to book appointments during (use the plus button next to the day of the week to add additional time slots on one day).
    • The Services page allows you to add or manage the services that "customers" choose when booking an appointment with you.
    • Finally, on the Booking Page, you'll find many settings like your scheduling policy and email notifications. This is where you'll use the Save and publish button to launch your live Booking site so students can see it. Use the Open published page button to preview the final site.
