Manage Miscellaneous Settings

The "Miscellaneous Settings" screen (accessed via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Miscellaneous) contains a number of additional settings which may be adjusted in your MIDAS system.

Miscellaneous Settings

Enable links for phone numbers (Skype integration)
If enabled, phone/cell numbers displayed within MIDAS will become clickable/tappable (prefixed with callto://). If you have compatible software installed on your device, such as Skype, clicking/tapping these numbers within MIDAS will initiate a call to the corresponding number.

Maximum Search Results To Display Per Page
Sets a limit on the number of search results to display per page when searching for clients/bookings, listing invoices, or viewing pending booking requests, etc.

Maximum File Upload Size
If a custom "file" field has been defined (to allow attaching of files/documents to bookings), this setting controls the maximum size of file that users will be permitted to attach to bookings.

File Uploads are only available in self-hosted editions of MIDAS

Keep Temporary Logs For
Specifies for how many days MIDAS will keep logs, such as "Recent Activity", a record of "Deleted Bookings" (for restore), and certain "Statistics" etc. Higher settings will keep logs for longer, but will take up more server space, and may reduce performance. Note: This does not affect your actual bookings

Reference Booking Reminders sent as Calendar events back to UTC
By default, when a user sends a Booking Reminder to their external calendar, the times included in the calendar event match those booked in MIDAS. However, depending upon how your external calendar is configured and the timezone its running in, you may find that the times included in the emailed calendar event are offset. To fix this, enable the "Reference Booking Reminders sent as Calendar events back to UTC". MIDAS will then adjust times sent within calendar events back to UTC, based on your current timezone settings in MIDAS.

Enable Debug Logging
If debug logging is enabled, error messages generated by your MIDAS system will be logged to a file within your MIDAS installation.
This option is only available in self-hosted editions

Debug logging should only be enabled if instructed by MIDAS support to troubleshoot a problem with your system


MIDAS can notify users if their browser is obsolete (their browser version is less than the minimum version supported by MIDAS) or falls short of the recommended version to get the best experience out of MIDAS. If these options are selected, and the user's browser falls short of the minimum/recommended versions, a small bar will be displayed across the top of their MIDAS, prompting them to update their browser to the latest version.
