Having a waitlist is an excellent way to ensure that your event stays sold-out even when there are last minute cancellations. This article illustrates how you can enable the waitlist function, design the automated waitlist invitation email, and manage who gets to receive it.
To enable the waitlist function, head to the Registration Website Form Section page within your correct Event Workspace (Registration Website > Ticketing & Form). Click on ‘Notifications’ followed by ‘Ticket Class Full Message’.
Turn on the switch labelled ‘Add guests to waitlist when they sign up after an event or ticket class is full’ and click ‘Save’ for your waitlist to be enabled.
