Microsoft Bookings service description

Microsoft Bookings simplifies the process of scheduling and managing appointments. Bookings includes a web-based booking calendar and syncs with Outlook to optimize availability and give customers and end-users flexibility to book a time that works best for them. Automated notification emails and reminders reduce no-shows and enhance customer satisfaction, and organizations save time with a reduction in repetitive scheduling tasks. Bookings integrates with Microsoft Teams to support virtual appointments via online meetings, and Bookings calendar management through the Bookings app in Teams.
