Here at MIDAS HQ we get numerous suggestions for new functionality and features our customers would like to see included in future releases of our room booking system. As part of our ongoing commitment to the development of our room booking software, here we'll list some of the suggestions that haven't yet made it into MIDAS, and offer you the chance to influence which ones you'd most like to see in a future update! - If you have an idea for a feature not listed on this page, please let us know about it! Why not take a look at some of the previously implemented feature requests too!
Search/Filter these results: No matches found
Add Clients Icon
I think there should be a button in the main toolbar to add clients, instead of having to add them via the booking or search screen
I'd like to be able to assign a color to each venue and have the venue display in that color
Attach a document to Booking Confirmations
When I send Booking Confirmations through MIDAS, I'd like a way to all attach a .pdf or other document to the email (i.e. a booking contract/terms and conditions, etc)
Ability to generate Quotations for prospective bookings
I'd like to be able to generate and send a quotation to a client for a provisional booking, which they could then accept to convert their provisional booking into a confirmed booking and be invoiced accordingly
Repetitive Booking indication
Is there a way to distinguish repetitive bookings from one-off bookings in the booking grid?
Currently in Planning
Send "Invites" to meetings
I'd like to be able to send out e-mail invites/Outlook meeting requests to required staff attendees when I book a room for a meeting
Ability to resend booking confirmation emails
Is there a way to re-send a booking confirmation email?
Currently in Planning
Could MIDAS generate 'Booking Contracts' for my clients, showing dates of usage, terms of hire, signature line, etc?
Could there be an unbranded "white label" edition of MIDAS that contains no references to "MIDAS", and which I can fully re-brand with my own name/logo instead?
Selectable Invoice Templates
At present I can only have a single invoice template. I'd like to be able to define more invoice templates, for example, if there are different payment terms, etc for different clients
Print "Staffing Schedules"
As we can assign Staffing to our bookings, could MIDAS generate a schedule for each staff member?
Recurring bookings that recur "forever"
Can I make a recurring/repetitive booking that repeats "forever", rather than the repeat ending after a certain number of weeks, or after a certain date?
Specify discounts by client
At present, we can assign discounts to bookings based upon the booking "type" - could we have a way to assign these discounts based upon the client instead of the booking type?
Print Individial Bookings
I know I can print out a day's bookings, a client's bookings, or bookings over a date range... but is there a way I can print out specific individual bookings?
Ability to add bookings to existing invoices
When generating an invoice for a specific booking, it would be ideal if there was a way to add the booking to an existing invoice, rather than generating a new invoice
Option to compare two date ranges when viewing statistics
I'd like a way to compare one date range of statistics to another date range
Cut-off time for booking modifications
I'd like to be able to prevent further modifications to bookings if there's less than 24/48hours, etc, to go before the start of a booking
Currently in Planning
Improve Hours of Operation to set different hours for different date ranges
At present, the Hours of Operation I set for my venues are applied to all dates. I'd like to set different operating hours during term time/holidays, etc
Option to book by entire venue "group"
It would be useful if there was a way to quickly book all venues in a particular venue group, rather than having to manually select each individual venue in the group
Daily email of the day's bookings
Could MIDAS automatically email me a list of all the day's bookings first thing each morning?
Option to "ban" someone from making further booking requests for a certain period
Can there be a way to limit the number of booking requests one person can make in any given time period/at any one time?
Ability to change all references to "venues" to something else
Whilst self-hosted customers can modify language packs to change wording/phrases within MIDAS, cloud-hosted customers can not. For my organization I'd like to rename "venues" to something more suitable like "rooms", or "locations", or "spaces", etc
MIDAS allows me to have automated booking reminders set to clients a specific number of hours before their bookings are due to commence (i.e. 24 hours). This is fine if their booking takes place on a Tuesday, as they'll get a reminder the day before. But, if their booking is due to take place on a Monday, I'd instead like the reminder sent on the Friday before
Ability to retain the multi-day feature if a user's hours are restricted
At present, if I restrict a user's hours, they loose access to the multi-day view. Can the multi-day view be made available even if a user's hours are restricted?
Filter Booking Grid By Booking Type
We can filter the Booking Grid by Venue Group, but it would be useful to also be able to filter the grid by Booking Type
Ability to add photos/descriptions to resources
Can we have the ability to add photos/descriptions etc to resources, like we can with venues?
Automated Post-Booking Follow-Up/Feedback Emails To Client
Using the "Scheduled Tasks" features, MIDAS can automatically send booking reminders before bookings take place. Could there also be a way to automatically send follow-up emails after a client's booking has taken place (i.e. to ask them for feedback on their experience, etc)
Printable Address Labels
Could MIDAS generate and print address labels for clients?
Show blocked venue slots in the booking grid
Similar to how closed periods are indicated in the booking grid, it would be useful to see a similar visual indication of which venues are currently blocked by others
Ability to limit users to a sub-set of clients
The "Client" field on the Add Bookings screen allow a user to select any existing client. I'd ideally like to be able to limit specific users to only be able to add bookings for certain clients
Ability to restrict users to only view bookings of certain types
Whilst we can restrict which venues each user can see bookings for, it would be useful if we could also restrict which "types" of bookings each user can view
Tax exempt resources
I know I can already make certain clients tax exempt, but I have certain resources which I'd like to make tax exempt too - is this possible?
Allow theme modifications in cloud-hosted editions
Presently, the visual "themes" for MIDAS can only be edited in self-hosted editions. Can cloud-hosted customers also have the ability to modify themes?
Swap times/venue axis in the booking grid
Currently MIDAS shows times of day across the horizontal axis, and venues down the vertical axis of the booking grid. I'd prefer to see venues across the horizontal axis and times down the vertical axis
Ability to only trigger watch notifications for bookings within a certain date range
It would be great if I could further customize the triggers for "Watch" notifications to only trigger for matching bookings between two specific dates
Make "Booking Spacing" a per-venue rather than a global setting
The "booking spacing" settings to maintain fixed "gaps" between bookings currently apply to all venues. It would be useful if they could be set on a per-venue basis instead
Charge interest on overdue invoices
It's great that MIDAS can automatically remind clients of their upcoming and overdue invoice payments - but could there be a way for MIDAS to automatically start charging interest on invoices that are more than x days overdue?
Ability to override venue blocking rules on a per-user basis
Venue blocking rules currently apply to all users. It would be useful if these could be bypassed for administrative users (like operating hours can be)
Ability to make individual venues tax exempt
Whilst we can make individual clients exempt from tax on generated invoice, could there be aware to exempt individual venues from being included when calculating tax on invoices?
