What is it that makes a great waitlist?

A good waitlist feature is super important since:
We will tell you how!
Before discussing the feature, let us establish the fact that a waitlist feature is extremely important.
What happens if you don’t enable waitlists?
It is possible that you have a high demand for a particular class but it gets fully booked. The clients who couldn’t get a place, will feel dejected and might start looking for other options.
It is also possible that you get some cancellations and end up having empty spots in your class even when there was excess demand for your class.
Making your clients happy involves giving them a great experience.
Great experience means automating operations for ease of the process.
Your software should automatically send a notification to your waitlisted clients asking them to confirm their spot.
Have you ever faced the hassle of booking clients into your waitlist?
Let us take you through the process most businesses take.
Why go through all the trouble when tasks can be automated?
The issue that we were running into with Mindbody was that it did not automatically add waitlisted people when the spots were cleared. When a spot was open, we had to manually call the waitlisted people and add them to the class. This waitlist management system did not work for us given the volume of our classes.
