Ratings and Reviews
Used before the iPad app and love it better this way
It is extremely handy. I tried it on the phone, but it is a little too much information for the screen. iPad works far better. iPad with keyboard even better than that. It does have a learning curve just to set up Bookings and is even harder to get other employees to get into (my partner refuses to use it), but I can see how great it would be with everyone on board. It definitely helps with my own scheduling, especially as I integrate it with my Outlook calendar.
I like it until...
Bookings seemed like a great way for a small business to handle clients without all of the additional fees of an app like Square. Unfortunately, it stopped working when I updated my phone and I didn't realize it until a client called to ask me where I was. She had altered the time of her appointment and I didn't receive a notification. When I tried to open the app - nothing. Microsoft told me to talk to GoDaddy and I have always had good experiences with GoDaddy support. Unfortunately, this issue is on Microsoft's end and even though I contacted them again, I have yet to receive any sort of acknowledgement or advice in regards to why their app has stopped working on my phone. I can access Bookings through a web browser but the screen is cut off and hard to navigate and all of this defeats the purpose of the simplicity that I wanted. I guess I will return to using Square or GoDaddy's built in scheduling but I am not happy about this. I enjoyed the idea of being able to designate specific days for specific services and neither of those allows this flexibility.

I love this app/feature. I place the link on my website, social media, even my email signature. Therefore my clients can just book their own appointments. It reminds them of our meeting & that’s up to me, how many days or hours in advance of their scheduled appointment. No more going back & forth asking when each other is available. I just send my “book now” link. You have to put what you’re doing on your calendar so no one will book time that you’re busy. It’s great. Saves time!
