“Booking Types” is a way for you to color-code your bookings in MIDAS based on their “type”. For example, you may have both internal and external users of your facilities, and so by assigning a different color to each of booking allows you to be able to visually differentiate between the two types of bookings in the booking grid.

Additionally, you can also setup discounted room rates based upon the booking type assigned to each booking. Using the above example, you may want to charge external users of your facilities “full price”, but offer a discount to internal users.

Normally, when adding new bookings on the “Add Bookings” screen, you’d have to select the client that the booking is for, and also separately select the booking type. However, wouldn’t it save time if when you selected a client, the appropriate booking type was automatically pre-selected for you? Of course it would!

That’s why with MIDAS v4.14, you’ll be able to set a default booking type for each of your clients. When a user then selects the client on their Add Bookings screen, the associated default booking type will be pre-selected accordingly. (The user may then manually change the booking type for that booking if desired)
