Inundated by lots of booking requests? Following customer feedback, MIDAS v4.14 includes new “Reject All” and “Approve All” buttons on the Pending Booking Request screen, providing you with the easy ability to “bulk reject” or “bulk approve” all outstanding requests on your current Pending Booking Requests screen.

Bulk Approve or Reject Booking RequestsClicking the “Reject All” button will then allow you to enter an optional brief reason why you’re rejecting the requests (unless the “Approve/Reject requests silently” option is selected), which will be included in the rejection email notifications to the affected clients.

If the “Approve/Reject requests silently” option is selected, clicking “Reject All” will first show a confirmation of the number of booking requests to be rejected which if confirmed will then reject all those requests.

The “Approve All” button when clicked will also a confirmation of the number of booking requests to be approved, which if confirmed will then attempt to approve all those requests.

The order that these requests are approved in is important – as it may not be possible to automatically approve all booking requests. For example, if two requests have been made by two different clients for the same venue and times, they both can’t be approved).

In such instances, a “Bulk Approval Order” setting (found via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Web Requests) will determine the order (priority) in which booking requests will be bulk processed for approval. The four possible options are as follows:

  1. Earliest Requested First (Requests that were made earlier will be approved before requests that were made more recently)
  2. Latest Requested First (Requests that were made more recently will be approved before requests that were made earlier)
  3. Earliest Commencing First (Requests for bookings starting sooner will be approved before requests that start further in the future)
  4. Latest Commencing First (Requests for bookings starting further in the future will be approved before requests that are due to start sooner)
