Recurring Appointments in Microsoft Bookings
add an option to appointments that sets up a recurring booking in Microsoft Office 365 Bookings. For example: appointment from 3-4pm on every Mon/Thu till 6/1/18.
Ditto to many people already: I have the same appointment with people every week, and it's tedious to re-enter it every week, rather than putting it as a recurring appointment.
This missing feature is the only thing holding us back from using this app
The inability to make recurring bookings renders this otherwise excellent app almost useless for us.
We have loads of customers who book the same time slot(s) every week, month on month. To add each booking individually would be unrealistic.
When will this feature be available?
This is one of the reasons we can't use Microsoft bookings
Recurring bookings is a basic feature
This seems to be a fundamental missing function

I can’t believe clients cannot set up recurring visits with this software! Almost all of my services are recurring. I will need to find a different software do use for my company.

Not having recurring appointments is a major flaw in Bookings!! As a quick (yet not ideal) fix, after the client schedules the first appointment in Bookings, you can create the recurring appointment in Outlook, which will block that day/time on the Bookings page.
Recurring bookings is crucial to my business. As of now I'm spending far too much time entering, & re-entering data for months in advance. Clients are getting annoyed at not being able to book meetings/classes in one session. As a service provider I offer my clients on-going scheduled training and not having the basic ability to schedule these dates out in advance is a huge time drain.

Many professions have routine appointments. I need recurring appointments. You are leaving out a very important function for entire professions. Without that there will be booking conflicts. Recurring appointment is a standard part of every booking app.

This is a very functional idea. We can make recurrences in Outlook and it is mosts useful. It should be a standard part of any booking app.

I would love to see this added.
We have lodged a ticket twice now with Microsoft only to be told to go here and add to the requests, please push this up people this would really make this function practical for a load of small and large business.
Ticket 1 - We have a several clients that runs a booking calendar but they would like the customer to be able to select which days / events they go to on one session.
So in the example below the issue is a parent is going to book their child in for 8 weeks, in the beginners class, at 4pm. the issue we currently have is they would need to complete the booking form 8 times to achieve this result.
Ticket 2 - At present i have been able to get the app to accept multiple people in a class, but i cannot run a class repeating each week for 8 weeks.
This has caused pain in the sense that parents have been booking in for either each week, or only the first week and then someone else is booking for week 2, this is causing over booking of the classes and confusion.

I am surprised that this request has only got 6 votes. 12 months ago I voted for the exact same request and the votes were way higher. Has Microsoft reset the counter?
