When you manage your bookings through another booking provider, you get web and app services that seamlessly use your customer’s Google Account. Your customers also benefit from built-in integration with widely used Google products, like Calendar, and automatic reminders so that they don’t miss their booking.
You can use the booking tab in Google My Business to view the booking history of your Business Profile for bookings that came in through Reserve with Google.
To choose a Google My Business provider:
- On your computer, sign in to Google My Business. If you have multiple locations, open the one that you’d like to manage.
- From the menu, click Bookings. If you don't see this tab, then bookings aren’t an available option for your business category or region.
- Sign up with your provider of choice.
- Your scheduling provider account is automatically linked to your Google My Business account within one week. After you link your accounts, you can schedule bookings through Google.
If you already use a scheduling provider, you're automatically eligible to receive bookings. In your Google My Business Bookings tab, you can see your booking history made with your provider in Reserve with Google.
