Waiting list

You are most likely familiar with the burden of cancellations. It is especially tricky when the cancellation is close to the day of the appointment. One way to manage this would be to make the time available for booking again! To make sure that other clients are going to see this newly opened spot, you could employ a waiting list.

1. Setting it up

Once activated, you can find the waiting lists on the calendar page next to the button for creating appointments.

Guide for setting up a waiting list for clients

Clicking on the ‘Waiting Lists’ button will allow you to add clients to the waiting list, and to have an overview of all of them. Adding a client will allow you to pick who it is, their preferred time, and the service they are looking for.

Once you have put the clients on the waiting lists you can have an overview of the list. You can delete, or reschedule the clients, and send an invitation to the clients for their appointment.
