For those teaching in-person classes, students are craving being back in person and we're here to help support that! Safely of course :)
Basic Waitlisting (default option)
Once a spot opens up all names on the list are emailed notifying them of the spot. From there it is first come first serve who books the spot.
How it works:
If class fills up, your class will now be marked as waitlist only. Students can now sign up for the waitlist to be notified when a spot opens up.
Click join the waitlist
If a spot opens up, all students will be automatically emailed that the class now has an open spot. From there, they will be directed to your website and sign up.
How to view who is on my waitlist
Tap into any class page to view who is on the waitlist. Indicated by a small stop watch to the left of the name:
When a spot opens up automated waitlist automatically adds a client to class based on who was first on the waitlist.
The client experience is the same and will be asked to join waitlist at checkout. The only difference is they can see what number they are in line from their booking screen.
To enable Automated Waitlists head to you Settings tab > Waitlists toggle Enable waitlist and choose a waitlist close window. Since clients are automatically added and charged we recommend having you window be at least 30 minutes or more for the them to have adequate notice.
Once a spot opens up the client in position one will be automatically added and sent a confirmation email.
Clients on the waitlist will still appear in the client roster and be indicated by their position in the waitlist:
Allow overlapping reservations is an option you can toggle on to allow a client to make multiple waitlist reservations for the same time slot.
