MIDAS Documentation v4.20
Selecting the icon in the main toolbar opens the "My Messages" screen.
This screen contains three sections:
My MessagesThis section displays internal messages you've received from other MIDAS users.
See Also: Messaging Another User
My RemindersThis section displays reminders of important bookings you've chosen to be reminded of, and any other custom reminders you have set.
See Also: Setting Reminders
My WatchesThis section displays activity for the venues, booking types, and/or resources you are currently "watching" for booking activity, as well as notifications of low consumable levels.
See Also: Watches
Tip: Clicking/tapping on the "My Messages", "My Reminders", or "My Watches" headings will expand/contract that section
Tip: The numbers in brackets after the "My Messages", "My Reminders", or "My Watches" headings denote how many live items are currently contained within each section
SettingsThe "Also send messages I receive to my email" and "Also send new watches to my email" options, if selected will also send to your email address any messages and watch notifications you respectively receive. If the "Only if I'm not logged in" options are additionally selected, you'll only be sent these notifications when you're not logged in.
The "Send Booking Reminders as Calendar events to my email" option will cause booking reminders you set to be sent to your email inbox as Calendar events. If you email software has a companion calendar application (i.e. Outlook/Thunderbird Lightning, etc), you'll be able to add these reminders directly to your companion calendar.
By default, if you have Messages, Reminders or Watches, these will be displayed to you whenever you login to MIDAS. You can supress this popup by unticking the "Show My Messages popup on login" box.
