Waiting List for Events

Re: Waiting List for Events

Thanks Brandon but I hope you can understand my skepticism. It seems this was showing up for a long time as a highly desirable item. Here it is - seven months later - and still the same answer.

Re: Waiting List for Events

Hi,

 

I wish I had a time frame as to when this feature would be implemented but unfortunately, I do not. We've passed on your feedback regarding this to a product owner so I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Waiting list

I think it would be really helpful to create a waiting list option on the event side. Say we can only have 40 people at an event. Set the cutoff at 40 and the keep the ability to register open and create a waiting list for those who can attend if someone has to cancel after registering. If someone cancels, then the program would notify the first person on the waiting list that a spot is open and they can go in a accept (through the notification email).

 

Just a thought...

Re: Waiting List for Events

Hello. I'm registering my vote for a waiting list feature. This is a significant shortcoming of Constant Contact.

Re: Waiting List for Events

Hi

This thread was started a year and a half ago.  Would you please give an update on the decision to add a waitlist feature.  I was seriously considering using eventspot, however, the waitlist and freedom to edit the responses to a full event are vital features.   I'd like to know more than if a vote has been cast.....

Thank you.

Hi Deirdre,

Thanks for your post. A waitlist function is under review currently so I do not have a timeframe. I'm happy to add your comments as a vote as we make improvements based on what customers are looking for. 

 

As for editing responses, are you looking to add to the details a registrant provides or are you looking to customize the registration form more? 

 

Thanks for your help,
