With development on the next update to our room booking and resource scheduling software, MIDAS nearing completion, we’re shedding a little light here on some of the new and improved features to look forward to in v4.13.

v4.13 includes a sprinkling of small improvements to the already extensive invoicing capabilities of MIDAS. These include…

Option to automatically mark invoices totaling zero as paid

MIDAS already provides the option to specify whether to only generate invoices if the invoice total is non-zero, or generate invoices regardless of the invoice total.
In v4.13 we’re adding an additional setting to control what happens in the event that a zero total invoice is generated. When enabled, any invoice generated that has a total of zero will automatically be marked as “Paid in full”.
You’ll find this new setting via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Invoicing.

Option to generate an invoice when directly approving booking request

Previously, if you wanted to generate an invoice from a booking request you were about to approve, you would either need to firstly approve it and then separately generate an invoice, or modify the booking request and tick the “Create Invoice” box when approving.
We’re making it even easier in v4.13 to generate an invoice at the same time as you approve a booking request. At the bottom of your “Pending Booking Requests” screen, there’s now an “Generate Invoices when approving requests” tickbox. Selecting this option before you approve booking requests will automatically generate invoices accordingly.
Note: This option will not be available if your user permissions are set such as to deny you access to the invoicing capabilities of MIDAS.

%PAIDON% Receipt template placeholder variable to denote date invoice was paid in full

We’re also introducing a new placeholder variable for the “Invoice: Receipt” template.
The new %PAIDON% variable will be automatically substituted for the date the corresponding invoice was paid in full on.
Templates (including the “Invoice: Receipt” template) can be viewed and modified via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Templates.

MIDAS v4.13 is expected to be made available to Beta Testers in the next few weeks, with a general release shortly after. We’re always looking for additional testers to help test and provide feedback/bug reports on pre-release versions of our software, like v4.13. Becoming a tester is free and no experience is required, and what’s more we’ll reward you for your participation! Find out more about becoming a MIDAS Beta Tester here.
