Here's how to establish these limits and manage waitlisted participants:
How to set up capacity limits and waitlists
- Access the registration in Edit mode.

Managing waitlisted participants
Once participants are on waitlists and spots open up, you can easily manage the waitlist status for individuals from your registration form management screen.

Add the 'Waitlist Status' column by clicking Manage Columns.
- Filter the view based on specific statuses using the "All Waitlist Status" dropdown.
- If the filter dropdowns are not visible, click the Filter button.
- Status definitions:
- Waitlisted: The participant is currently on the waitlist.
- Offer Extended: The waitlisted participant has been offered an open spot.
- Offer Accepted: The waitlisted participant has accepted the offer.
- Enrolled: The participant has been moved from the waitlist to the roster.
Released: The participant has declined the offer or has been removed from the waitlist.
Hover over the three-dot button to access waitlist management options for individuals.
- Choose the desired action for waitlisted participants.
- Accepted participants who also accept their offer automatically receive an invoice for any fees due.
