Tag Archive: bulk modify


In the very early days of MIDAS, each “venue” (room/bookable space) you added to the system could have a name and a maximum occupancy level (capacity) setting.

Over the years as MIDAS has developed and improved, the number of venue options has greatly increased; today you can set hours of operation, simple and complex hire rates, venue managers, venue blocking rules, alternatives, and rich HTML descriptions.

These additional options have given our software even more flexibility for a wider range of applications, however, when you increase the number of individual venue settings/options available, this in turn can increase the time it takes to setup or make changes to a venue.

That’s why last March, in response to customer feedback, we introduced a way to allow you to “bulk modify” venues, so that users no longer had to modify settings for each venue one at a time.

Manage Venues Screen

The “bulk modify” venue feature allowed more than one venue to be selected at a time from the Manage Venues screen, and when the “Save Changes” button was clicked, the current venue settings/options would be saved for all selected venues.

However, some users didn’t appreciate that all venue settings/options (with the exception of the venue name) would be applied to all selected venues, including capacity, rates, hours, managers, etc.

Therefore, to provide even grater flexibility for users, for v4.21, we’re making it even simpler!

Now, when you have multiple venues selected on the Manage Venues screen and you click ‘Save Changes”, MIDAS will prompt you to select which current settings you wish to apply to your selected venues:

Bulk Modify Venues Options

This new additional dialog will give users full control in making it easier and straight forward to make specific bulk changes to venues, and we’re sure you’re going to love it!

The first big update of 2018 for our MIDAS web based room booking and resource scheduling system is nearly ready, and includes a number of user-requested features and improvements.

One of these concerns the setting up and modification of venues within the system. Whilst setting up your venues is typically a one-time task, if you’re setting up a large number of venues it can become a little mundane having to set hours of operation, rates, groups, managers, blocking rules, alternative venues, etc for each venue individually – especially if the settings are the same across multiple venues.

That’s why in v4.18, we’ve made it easier to make “bulk” changes to multiple venues at once, which we’re sure will be a real time saver!

Bulk Modify/Remove Venues

On the “Manage Venues” screen, multiple venues can now be selected simultaneously from the “All Venues” list to the left. Any changes then made in the “Venue Details” section to the right will be applied to all selected venues.

Furthermore, you’ll also be able to remove venues in bulk (rather than one at a time)
