Mastering Office 365: Microsoft Forms will be integrated with Bookings in Teams

Microsoft is improving the integration of its Bookings app in Teams for virtual meetings. The update will add Microsoft Forms to the Bookings integration, enabling users to ask for information from meeting attendees and share it securely with staff while maintaining industry-specific compliance requirements for security and privacy following institutional data policy requirements.

The Microsoft Bookings app in Teams will be integrated with Microsoft 365 Forms to support your workflow for virtual visits from start to finish. Administrators and schedulers can enable the collection of pre-visit data for virtual visits by linking Microsoft 365 Forms to appointments in the Bookings app in Teams.

We expect the new features to roll out beginning in the middle of this month and to be completed by the end of the month. It will be limited to the Desktop and Mobile Teams apps; this capability will be added to the web app in future releases You do not need to take any action to enable the update. This new feature will enable you to:

  • Link Microsoft Forms to the Bookings app in Teams.
  • Create a new appointment from Bookings app in Teams that will automatically include any Forms that you have associated to the Bookings.
  • Include forms added to an appointment in the email confirmation that is sent to the attendee.
  • Enable staff to view the status of Form submissions in the appointment details within the Bookings Teams app.
