We have an growing range of optional “addons” available to extend the capabilities of your MIDAS Room Booking and Resource Scheduling system.

Along with the forthcoming v4.17 update to MIDAS, we’ll also be launching a brand new “Custom Links” optional addon, based upon feedback we’ve received from some of our customers.

Customers have expressed the desire to be able to add their own custom links after the standard “Logout”, “Change Password”, “Help” and “Full Screen” links underneath the main date near the top of the screen when users are logged in:

Standard links when logged into MIDAS

Our new “Custom Links” addon allows administrators to do just that – add up to three additional custom links for logged in users:

MIDAS Custom Links Addon

Administrators will be able to specify the name of the link as it will appear on screen, as well as the URL to the webpage or resource to link to. Furthermore, administrators can also specify whether each link should open in a new tab/window, or within the main booking grid area:

Custom link to Wikipedia opened within MIDAS

Custom link to an Accuweather forecast opened within MIDAS

A note about opening custom links in the booking grid area: Some 3rd party websites prevent their content from being directly embedded within other websites/apps. In such instances, you would need to specify that your custom link opens in a new window instead.

As mentioned, the new Custom Links addon is expected to become available with the upcoming release of v4.17, but in the meantime be sure to also check out some of our other exciting addons available for MIDAS at https://mid.as/addons

MIDAS v4.17 is coming soon! To be notified when it becomes publicly available, please join our mailing list, or to be among the very first to try the v4.17 “Beta”, please consider becoming a beta tester (we reward our Beta testers too!)
