Bookings: Introducing Microsoft Bookings

Microsoft Bookings allows people within or outside the University to book appointments on an online scheduling calendar that integrates with existing Outlook office calendars. Faculty can use Bookings to provide their availability for office hours and allow students to book appointments. Staff and departments can use Bookings to provide their availability to both internal and external colleagues and allow them to schedule a time for a meeting or event.
