Today I noticed the following in my Message Center in the Admin Center of Office 365:
Microsoft today announced that Microsoft Bookings will be available for your users. It is available as part of the Business Apps (free) add-on subscription.
Microsoft Bookings helps simplify how customers schedule and manage appointments with businesses. It can also be used for scheduling appointments for internal customers and staff in a larger organisation.
If you add the Business Apps (free) add-on to your existing subscriptions, Microsoft Bookings will be available to your users. It is released off-by-default to give you a chance to explore the new capabilities. Once turned-on users will see the Microsoft Bookings icon in the App Launcher and on their homepage after log-in.
