Latest News: MIDAS v4.28 Out Now | Refer-a-Friend | MIDAS Turns 15

Posts Tagged: v4.18

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)

MIDAS Room Booking & Resource Scheduling systems come with a set of basic booking fields enabled by default, which allow you to record the type of booking, the number of attendees, resources, and booking notes, in addition to venue, date/time, and client details.

Booking fields can be re-ordered as well as made optional or required, and can also be selectively hidden from individual users.

Furthermore, MIDAS also gives you even more flexible control by allowing you to add your own “custom” booking fields as well!

A variety of different custom booking field types may be added to MIDAS, including:

Last year, we expanded the types of custom booking fields available, with the inclusion of a new “Range” (or “slider”) custom booking field type.

For MIDAS v4.18, we’re adding a further custom booking field type to the available range with the introduction of a new custom “Checkbox” (tick box) booking field type:

Custom Checkbox/Tickbox Booking Field
Custom Checkbox (Tickbox) Booking Field

When adding a new “Checkbox” custom booking field to MIDAS, you’ll be able to title it, specify whether the box should be “checked” (ticked) by default, and also whether the checkbox is required to be checked/ticked in order to proceed in adding/modifying/requesting the booking.

This new custom booking field and associated options will certainly find uses in a variety of applications – for example, it will now be easy for MIDAS users to ensure that their hirers/customers have accepted any Terms & Conditions of Hire, etc before making their request/booking.
