Microsoft recently announced their new Microsoft Bookings app, helping keep all appointments in one, user-friendly space. This is a system that my VA is personally rather excited about, as it means she can not only help her retail clients add a simple system for their customers to book onto, but also for her diary management clients to have one space that she can book the appointments she arranges for them onto.
What does it offer?
One part of using systems such as Microsoft Bookings, is that it sends reminders (hallelujah) to people who have booked, which means no more missed meetings or appointments, as they will get a confirmation and a reminder, as well as the staff within the team having the relevant bookings added automatically to their own calendar. It also has an app, which means clients can view all appointments while on the move, enabling them to call, text or email customers with ease.
How this will help your clients
As a virtual assistant, you may be searching for calendar options for your clients, and this is definitely one to have as a recommendation, not just because of its ease of use and functionality, but it also has a fantastic bonus point of having a bespoke webpage that can be easily linked to, so no need to find and download expensive plugins onto a website.
It is a part of the Office 365 Business Premium package, which is only £9.40+VAT per month, and gives you access to the latest versions of the Microsoft Office suite, as well as many other apps we will be sharing with you here on Tomorrow’s VA.

I’d love to know if you have used the Microsoft Bookings app, and how it has worked for your clients as a VA, or if you are considering using it.
