MIDAS Feature Request

Request New Features

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!

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?

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

Smarter automated booking reminder notification scheduling

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

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 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?

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

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?

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

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?

Swap the time / 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
