Creating a Waitlist for Shifts


Waitlists are useful when you may want to have additional volunteers for a shift that is already filled.

To enable a 'Waitlist' on a shift, you must navigate to Events > Shift List and select mceclip5-May-04-2022-01-46-58-09-PM and Update.

Under the Advanced tab, select 'Enable Waitlist'. This will allow Users to apply into a waitlist if the Shift is full.

Enable waitlist

After you select Enable Waitlist, you will be prompted to enter the Maximum Waitlist Number.

Once this value has been met, no more applicants will be accepted into your Waitlist.

If someone withdraws from a shift, and a spot opens up, people from the waitlist must be manually confirmed by an administrator. 

Waitlist can only be enabled when the default shift user status is pending or confirmed.
