Here at MIDAS HQ we get numerous suggestions for new functionality and features our customers would like to see in future releases of our scheduling software system. As part of our ongoing commitment to the development of our software, here we'll list some 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!

Choose which email types are BCC'd

At present the global BCC setting only BCC's manually typed emails to a specified address. Automated emails & notifications that are generated by MIDAS itself are not BCC'd. It would be great to define what should be BCC'd and what shouldn't

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. To avoid confusion, I'd like to rename "venues" to "rooms", or "locations", or "spaces", etc

Smarter automated booking reminder 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

Ability to add photos/descriptions to resources

Can we have the ability to add photos/descriptions etc to resources, like we can with venues?

Votes

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)

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

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?

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 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?
