I can’t add a staff member in bookings

The Staff page in Bookings is where you create your staffing list and manage staff member details such as name, phone number, and email address. You can also set working hours for each staff member from here. Although Bookings is a feature of Microsoft 365, not all your staff members are required to have a Microsoft 365 account. All staff members must have a valid email address so they can receive bookings and schedule changes.

  1. Go to the Manage staff page and select Add staff
  2. Select the Add Staff button.
  3. When adding staff from within your organization, type their name in the Add people field and select them when they appear in the drop-down menu. The other fields will automatically populate.
