MIDAS isn’t just for booking meeting rooms you know! Our software has successfully been implemented and used to manage bookings and resources for all kinds of venues and facilities, including libraries, bowling alleys, vehicle rentals, recording studios, hire companies, flight simulators, airports, hotels.. and more!

To better accommodate those businesses that book facilities “by the night” – like hotels, guest houses, B&B’s, hostels, and camping & caravan sites, we’re introducing an exciting enhancements to v4.14! The ability to book by a number of nights stay.

MIDAS already allows you to control (on a per user basis) the type of time selectors each user sees on their Add/Modify Bookings screen.

By default, this are simple start/finish time selectors, but can be changed to a start time + duration, or a drop-down list of pre-defined time periods.

For v4.14, there’s now an alternative option of booking by a number of “Nights”:

Tentative Booking Types

For users who have this option enabled, they simply need to select a check in date and a number of nights, and MIDAS will do the rest!

Tentative Booking Types

Administrators can pre-define your check in and check out times, as well as the maximum number of nights stay permitted.

Tentative Booking Types

For example, if your hotel’s check in time is 2pm and check out time is 11am, then a user would select their check in date and the number of nights stay, and a continuous booking will be created starting at 2pm on the check in date and running until 11am on the check out date.

Furthermore, if you’ve enabled the Public Booking Request features of MIDAS, administrators will also be able to enable the ability for the public to request by number of nights also!

We believe these exciting enhancements further increase the flexibility of our scheduling software and helps make it even more even more flexible to hotels, guest houses, B&B’s, hostels, camping & caravan sites… and more!
