Waiting List Option & Closed Registration Message

Waiting List Option & Closed Registration Message

Could you please create a waiting list option for events with an area to include a custom message saying that "this session/event is currently full. Please click here if you would like to receive notice of changes in availability openings or additionally scheduled sessions/similar events. It would be good to know who is wanting to register after an event is closed. Perhaps that information can be generated by looking at who is clicking on the registration links from the event announcement. Thank you!

PLEASE develop this sooner than later. We currently have zero way of tracking how many contacts "would have" signed up for events that were at capacity, nor do we have a way of finding out who was next in line when we have cancellations to fill. This issue alone is enough to make me research your competitors (sorry)...

Hi.  We'd like to be able to add text and a link to the page that displays in place of the registration page when an event is full.  I know that can'r be done now, and would like it added to the enhancement list.  Thank you.

Need a mechanism for wait list management

Couldn't agree more.  Why is this not completed yet? Very big demand over a good amount of time...

In the Event Set-up, if I want to offer my newsletter, the only choice I'm given is an Opt-Out. For many circumstances, this is too aggressive a marketing tactic. Please give me the choice to decide Opt-In or Opt-out for each event. Thanks!

It would be helpful for users to be able to edit the "event capacity default message" to add a name and phone number of a person to contact for participnts to be added to a waiting list for the event.

I suggest having an option for the event coordinator(myself) to be able to enter an attendees name and hold a seat. This could be linked to an email with an 'expiration hold date' and also represented by a different color in the registration circle. The hold should require name, email, phone and place for notes about the situation, for instance "waiting funding"

Once an event is full and automatically closes, it would be nice to have an option to default to send people to a wait list.
