MC485092 – Microsoft Bookings is part of the Microsoft 365 suite of products and is available through most commercial SKUs. It is available on the Web – Microsoft Bookings. The new version of Bookings was launched last year and is the default experience for all new users. This version addresses issues and introduces many new features.

Currently users have an option to switch back to the old version. But, going forward, Microsoft is retiring old version of Bookings.

When this will happen:

January 31, 2023

How this will affect your organization:

Microsoft would recommend you ask users in your organization to switch to the new version ahead of the retirement date to familiarize themselves with it. Depending on the practices of your organization, you might also want to consider any requirements around training your staff.
