Please note, this feature is still in beta. If you are not comfortable using a beta feature, please wait until this feature is out of the beta cycle. 

The waitlist feature allows patrons to join a standby list for sold-out events, providing them with an opportunity to be notified if more tickets become available.

NOTE: Waitlist and Pre sale (tickets not on sale yet) can not be done at the same time! If you're doing a pre-sale event, disable the waitlist on the event first under the marketing tab for the event. 

PLEASE NOTE: To use the Waitlist function 

1. The promoter account must be in multi-step checkout under SET UP > EVENTS > EVENT SETTINGS.
Click the GENERAL SETTINGS icon and make sure the ticket selection process and set to Multi-Step Checkout.
