HOWTO: Get Access to Microsoft Bookings

imageMicrosoft Bookings is an online and mobile app for businesses who provide services to customers on an appointment basis.

Unfortunately, everything you read about Microsoft Bookings says that it’s “available to use by default for Office 365 Education A3, Office 365 A5, and Office 365 Business Premium subscriptions.”

Q: Did you know it’s coming to Office 365 Enterprise subscriptions as well?

Beginning May 12, 2020, Microsoft Bookings will be available as on by default to Office 365 Enterprise E3 and Office 365 Enterprise E5 customers.

imageIf you purchased Office 365 Enterprise E3/Office 365 Enterprise E5 through a Microsoft Enterprise agreement or through volume licensing, you have to get the Microsoft Bookings add-on through the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). Once you get the free add-on, you you can assign licenses to users in your organization. Work with your channel partner or reseller to place a zero dollar purchase order for the add-on. Once you’ve purchased the add-on in Volume Licensing Service Center, follow these steps to get licenses and assign to your users in the Microsoft 365 admin center.

(Note: Microsoft 365 GCC tenants will have Bookings available in the future, however, as expected with all services published to Government Community Cloud, availability is pending Federal approval.)
