  1. Manhole Schedule Numbering

    For MH tables and report outputs, it would be good to have an option to report chronologically, e.g. 1-30.
    I understand it numbers them on the first Manhole built in the model however I think it would make more sense to go from shallowest to deepest, e.g. U/S to D/S. As is quite common in design additional MHs need to be incorporated further into the model due to clashes or change in direction etc, so it would be best if all outputs and MH tables followed the numerical order.

  2. Exceedance Level in Infodrainage

    It would be good to have an option in underground stormwater controls to have a separate option for exceedance level and Ground Level
    By taking the exceedance level as GL, it makes the Long sections look distorted when in reality it is common for our designs to have circa. 1m+ cover from top of tanks/soakaways etc to ground level.

  3. InfoDrainage - level bench in basin/pond configuration

    The sizing calculator in the pond build pop-up enables one side lpe only.
    There are now LLFAs that require level benck of at aleast 1.5 m width after 0.6 m depth in a basin.
    It is currently not possible to use your calculator to establish such basin properties.
    This would be useful.

  4. Provide Enhanced Manhole Schedule Details

    It would be great to have the option of providing an additional level of customisable detail which could be configured on MH Schedules.

    As an example including practical details around the cover – contractors want to know and see more from a MH schedule when out on site.

    Examples of details around the type of cover:
    Cover Size
    Opening Size
    Recessed
    Solid Top
    Loading Class

    Currently this level of additional detail is often added manually to MH schedules exported from software.

  6. InfoDrainage - Time of entry to be called time of entry, not time of concentration

    Te has specific meaning in the UK when using the rational method (modified).
    Tc also has speific meaning (Te + sumTf).
    It would be better if the software wants the user to input a Te, that it calls it Te. At the moment it calls the Te Time of concentration, which is very confusing.

  7. Assess scenarios based on annual water balance (runoff, infiltration, evaporation)

    Assessment of the annual water balance is an important criteria to evaluate drainage design at neighbourhood level.
    Functionality to assess scenarios in a chart (similar to typical pre-urban vs. urban) would save time in GIS-postprocessing

  8. manhole and pipe size files

    when I start a new network, the criteria automatically selects my default manhole and pipe size file, can you change it so when importing a file for the first time it selects my standard default files, older versions did select the default file

  10. Change the size / dimensions of multiple manholes at once

    MicroDrainage Network

    It would be very useful if it was possible to change the dims of many manholes at once. It'a a very laborious and time consuming task to change each dimension one-by-one, especially if the network is very large!

  11. "Copy to clipboard" alongside print/export on Microdrainage spreadhseet input/outputs

    Would greatly simplify the process of getting results/details from MD into a report, skipping a stage in the current process (Export to CSV/Excel - Open)

  17. Flood Studies Update: Ireland

    Add support for the Met-Eireann DDF Irish Rainfall Data. The IDF data can be downloaded from a website and automatically uploading this data would be a big time-saver for users in Ireland.

  18. Allow SOIL values < 0.15

    The Rural Runoff estimate tool in MDSUDS does not allow values of SOIL below 0.15.
    The UKSUDS greenfield runoff tool defaults to a value of SOIL=0.1 where SoilType=1
    This produces a significant difference in results. This difference results from using values of SOIL from FSR vs Wallingford Procedure and FSSR7
    It would be better if the MDSUDS tool allowed values of SOIL down to 0.1 for compatibility, and if the default values were standardised across the industry.

  19. Print Tickbox for Manhole Schedule Layout option

    In MicroDrainage 2019.1 the Manhole Schedule printout also includes a manhole layout, sometimes this is unnecessary and it would be helpful if there was an additional tickbox option in the printout settings.
