Creating a Waitlist

If you have a program that is currently full, you can create a wait list for anybody wanting to sign up. You can do this easily with FamilyID.

Step 1) Go to your Programs page. You can access this by going to the "Programs" button in the blue bar at the top of the page. Then, click "Edit" next to the program of choice. 

 

 

 

2) Once you are into your program, just click Tab 2, "Sections."

 

 

3) On this page, you can see all the sections currently being offered. To create your waitlist, click the green "Create New Section" button.

 

 

4) Enter the name of your waitlist. Make sure to mark it clearly as "WAIT LIST" so that registrants do not select the wrong section. Enter the start and end dates. Make sure to leave your "Space Limit" blank. Enter in any remaining information and press "Save."
