Microsoft Bookings makes it easier for your users to manage appointments both inside and outside of your organization. With this update, Bookings will transition from an add-in to an integral part of Office 365.
Microsoft Bookings will be On by default, which gives all of your users the ability to create and manage a Microsoft Bookings mailbox and calendar.
Administrators can turn Microsoft Bookings Off for their organization.
In the near future, administrators will be able to limit Microsoft Bookings to specific users within the organization. We will update this post with those details when they are available.
Your end-users will access Bookings from the Office 365 App Launcher waffle in the upper left corner of the browser in Office 365. As a web application, Bookings is only accessible online.
