Microsoft Bookings to be added as an Office 365 app

Microsoft Bookings, a self-service scheduling tool, will be available as an Office 365 web app in mid-May. We identified an issue where the original communication, MC209154 (April 10), did not reach the entire target audience. We apologize for the delay in the communication and are working to ensure we provide more timely communication in the future.Key point summary

  • Major category: new service
  • Deployment date: mid-May
  • Deploy to: E3 and E5 licenses
  • Control availability: tenant level control via UI or PowerShell; user-level controls available by end of April.

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.

Microsoft Bookings iOS app now available for download
