Is the Microsoft Bookings not working for you, and you cannot schedule an appointment? If so, then you are not alone. Fortunately, in this guide, we will give you a bunch of solutions that will help you fix the Microsoft Bookings not working problem. Let us get right into it.

Why is Microsoft Bookings not working?

Well, just every other problem, especially with Microsoft Office products, there are multiple reasons why Microsoft Bookings is not working for you.

  • The browser cache is causing issues: There might be an issue with the browser cache. Chances are that it has stored corrupt cache files, which are conflicting with the smooth performance of Microsoft Bookings.
  • There are some issues with your browser: There could be a browser bug that is causing the problem. Third-party extensions can also cause certain problems.
  • Microsoft Bookings is having some issues: The program itself might be going through some issues, such as the server of the Microsoft 365 might be down.
  • Your Microsoft Office account has some issues: Some glitches or bugs in the Microsoft account can also cause multiple problems.

What can I do to make Microsoft Bookings work?

Before you go ahead with the advanced troubleshooting methods, we suggest applying the below-mentioned quick ones:

  • Close all the background apps and check if this fixes the issue or not.
  • Make sure that your Microsoft 365 license associated with the Microsoft account you are using is valid.
  • Restart your PC, as several big issues can be resolved by a simple restart.
  • Check the Microsoft 365 status. If the server is down or under maintenance, then the products associated with Microsoft 365 won’t work.
  • There could be an issue with the version on your browser, and the feature that should work seamlessly, might not work as intended. In such a case, you should change your browser.

Now, let us check out the advanced solutions that will help you possibly resolve the problem.

A temporary glitch or bug with Microsoft Office products is often known to hamper the user experience. Chances are that there is a glitch with your Microsoft account, which is why Microsoft Bookings is not working.

To fix this problem, we would suggest you make sure to use your valid Microsoft Office account that has the necessary license to log in and see if this resolves the issue or not.
