Microsoft’s Appointment Service ‘Bookings’ Now Works with Facebook Pages. After selecting, the customer’s contact information is automatically filled in. Users just need to click the “Book” button to complete the appointment setting procedure.
Microsoft Bookings, which took off this summer, only presented an inimitable web page before, where customers could choose their dates and times based on convenience. But on social media more customers are exploring, then joining with companies nowadays.
That’s why this new integration makes Microsoft Bookings more treasured to business users. And with Facebook’s constant impulsion to assist as a one-stop-shop for anything you need from a business. Stretching from general information to customer support, and now, easier ways to take actions, like getting tickets or ordering food through Delivery.com and Slice, it makes sense that Microsoft Bookings, too, should interoperate with the social networking platform.
As soon as it gets started the Facebook appointments can then be managed beside others inMicrosoft Bookings. That comprises the capability to do things like send appointment approvals and reminders automatically. Microsoft Bookings also backs self-service reorganizing. And it syncs appointments to a consolidated calendar and staff calendars in Outlook for Office 365, Outlook.com and Google Calendar.
At present Bookings, a subscription service in Office 365 Premium is only accessible to businesses in the U.S. and Canada. It will be made available worldwide this November.
