We’ve been busy developing a major new update to our scheduling software, packed full of new and improved features many of which have originated from ideas and suggestions from our existing users.

A feature we often get asked for is to have the ability to “filter” booking requests to different users depending upon which venue is being requested.

Currently all booking requests received by your MIDAS go into a central “pool” from which any user with the “Can Process Web Requests” permission can view, approve, query, modify, reject, or lock these requests.

In MIDAS v4 Booking Requests can be filtered to different users based upon the venue requested!

You’ll be able to configure requests for your venues to go to different users for approval depending upon which venue has been requested – In a school/university scenario, this would, for example, allow your sports staff to manage requests for your sporting facilities, and office staff to manage requests for your meeting rooms!

How it works:
In MIDAS v4, you’ll find a new “Managers” tab on the “Manage Venues” screen. From this tab, you can assign one or more existing users to “manage” booking requests for that venue:

venue booking managers

Then, when a member of the public then makes a booking request for that venue, “managers” of that venue will be sent an automatic email notification (these can be turned on/off at any time through the manager’s “Pending Booking Requests” screen) informing them that a new pending booking request requires attention. The manager can login to MIDAS and go to their Pending Booking Requests screen where they’ll see outstanding requests for all the venues they manage. From this screen, booking requests can be approved with a click of the mouse. Alternatively, requests can be modified (moved to a different time, date, venue, etc), rejected, queried with the original requester, or locked from this screen!
