Microsoft Bookings in Outlook is coming to help you reduce the back and forth in scheduling, while helping you maintain control of your calendar. You'll be able to keep custom bookable time (via a new event drop down in the calendar pane) to share with others so they can easily find a time to schedule a 1:1 meeting with you according to your availability and preferences.
When someone books a time slot with you using your personal booking page, you will both receive an email confirmation. Attendees can update or cancel scheduled meetings with you directly from your personal bookings page.
All users with the following subscriptions will have access to Bookable time in Outlook by default:
- Office 365: A3, A5, E1, E3, E5, F1, F3
- Microsoft 365: A3, A5, E1, E3, E5, F1, F3, Business Basic, Business Standard, Business Premium
How can you start using Bookable time?
From Outlook on the web, click on the calendar tab on the left navigation menu, click the New Event button, and select Bookable time.
When you click on Bookable time, you can set your availability and share with your team members or external people.
