Appendix B - Field Variables
Field variables must be contained within a set of "booking tags" within your template - these "booking tags" define the section of code that is to be repeated (looped) for each booking to be displayed. Here's a template example.
The following variables can be used within a set of booking tags in your Screen Templates and correspond to booking fields within MIDAS. These variables will be automatically substituted with booking data on your display devices.
|<bookings></bookings>||This will display ongoing and upcoming bookings for the rest of the day|
|<bookings_now></bookings_now>||This will only display bookings which are taking place at the present time|
|<bookings_next></bookings_next>||This will only display bookings for the remainder of the day which have yet to start|
|%ATTENDEES%||Number of attendees||10|
|%CLIENT%||Name of client||Joe Bloggs|
|%FINISH%||Booking finish time||10:00|
|%NOTES%||Booking notes||This booking may finish early|
|%ONGOING%||Assigns an "ongoing" style class to the template element if the booking is ongoing. This could be used to display bookings currently taking place in a different color to other bookings. See Appendix C for examples|
|%ORG%||Client's organization||My Company|
|%RESOURCES%||List of resources assigned to booking||x1 Laptop|
x1 Data Projector
|%START%||Booking start time||09:00|
|%TYPE%||Booking type||Internal Meeting|
|%VENUE%||Name of venue||Meeting Room A|
|%CUSTOM_x%||If you've defined your own custom booking fields within MIDAS, you can include them on your screens using the "%CUSTOM_x%" variable (where "x" is the internal name of your custom booking field).|
For example, if you've added a custom field to your MIDAS named "Room Layout", you would include data from this field on your signage screen with the variable "%CUSTOM_ROOM_LAYOUT%"
