Enter your business information

In Microsoft Bookings, the business information page contains all the details that you'd typically find on a business' "About us" page. These details include your business name, address, phone number, web site URL, logo, and business hours.

The information you provide here will be displayed on the page customers use to book appointments (known as the booking page) and in messages and reminders sent to them by Bookings.

Set your business hours

By default, the business hours in the Bookings app are set to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Times are provided in 15-minute increments. The Bookings app uses the 12-hour clock.

  1. On the Business information page, under Business hours, use the dropdowns to select start and end times for each day.

  2. Click + to add start- and end-time selectors.

How to set hours for a split shift

You might need to block out a portion of each day, or part of a day each week to have staff meetings, update inventory, or take care of other rhythm-of-business details. During these times, you might not want to schedule customer appointments. The Bookings app allows for that.

Let's say you have staff meetings every Thursday from 1 to 2:30 and want to block out that time so all of your staff members can attend. Here's what you do:

  1. On the Business information page, under Business hours, select a start and end time for Thursdays. In this example we'll set 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

  2. Select + to create a new row for Thursday.

  3. In the new row, select 2:30 p.m. for the start time and 6:00 p.m. for the end time.

  4. Select Save.

    When a customer goes to your booking page, he or she will see that your business is closed from 1 to 2:30 on Thursdays.
