If you would like to add a waiting list for when your Optional Extra becomes full, follow these steps:
Step 1: To begin the process of creating a waiting list for an Optional Extra, hover over ‘Payment Options’ in the main menu and select ‘Optional Extras’ in the drop-down menu that appears.
Step 2: Next, select ‘Add new’ if you are creating a new Optional Extra, or ‘Edit’ if you would like to add a waiting list to an existing one.
Step 3: A pop-up box will then appear with options for setting up your Optional Extra.
One of the questions you will be asked is, ‘Limit the number of people that can join this Optional Extra?’. To set up a waiting list, select ‘Yes’.
Step 4: Once you have selected ‘Yes’, additional fields will appear. Here, you can type the maximum number of people who can join the Optional Extra.
Step 5: You will also be asked, ‘When full, give prospects an option to join a waiting list?’ – to set up a waiting list, click ‘Yes’. Once you have clicked ‘Yes’, you will be able to set the name of the waiting list. By default, this will be the name of the Optional Extra with ‘- waiting list’ on the end.
Step 6: Complete the Optional Extra setup process and click ‘Save and Finish’.
Once this is done, you will have successfully set up your waiting list!
