Connect Booking System


Integration with external booking systems is supported utilizing our REST API for the One-to-One solution to be used for scheduled calls.

Integration options

  1. Use one of our integrated solutions Appointedd or Booxi
    • Will not require any extra development due to already existing integrations

  2. Integrate your own external booking system
    • Set up end-user booking interface
    • Request Bambuser's Connect links API to create a meeting
    • Connect your resources (agents)
Booking CTA can also be enabled within the Call Widget to allow your customers to schedule a call instead of joining the call straight away (Drop in). Read more about how the booking CTA can be configured here.

Integrate your own booking system

To integrate your own booking system you need to use Bambuser's Connect links API. Bambuser provides a way for your booking system to generate a link where the agent and the customer can connect to the meeting.

Terminology:

  • externalId Your booking system's ID of the booking (should be unique to this booking)
  • externalResourceId Your booking system's ID of the Agent / Bookable resource
  • id Bambuser's ID of the created connect-link

Step 1: End user booking interface

You need to provide a way for your customers to book meetings through your own User Interface. Your own website should direct customers to this booking interface.

When a customer book a meeting, your booking system sends a request to Bambuser's Connect links API to create a connect link.

note

Remember to replace the bracket variables [] in the example URLs. E.g. replace [id] with abc123

  1. Save the id that you get back from the API to be able to make updates to the connect link
  2. Generate the connect link url for agent and customer
    • Agent: https://lcx.bambuser.com/[orgId]/one-to-one/agent-tool?connectId=[id]
    • Optionally you can add this link to the email confirmation agent recieves after somebody has booked a meeting with them. Agents will also be able to join the meeting straight through the dasboard

    • Client: https://[your-website]/live-meeting/?bambuserConnectId=[id]
    • Include this link to the email confirmation end-user recieves after they have booked a meeting. Clicking on the link will automatically open the widget on page load and allow them to join that specific meeting

  1. Add calendarId (External Calendar ID) to the user utilizing REST API
    • If user is not already in the dashboard, you can do this by passing calendarId in the body of the request when inviting the user to the dashboard
    • If user is already in the dashboard, you can do this by passing calendarId in the body of the request for updating user data
  2. This will automatically populate External Calendar ID field in the dashboard for that user

Manual
Instruct your users/agents to login to Bambuser Dashboard and go to their profile settings and enter their externalResourceId in the Calendar Id field.
