Why have my members who RSVP'd yes gone onto a waiting list?

Why have my members gone onto a waiting list?:

When enabling RSVP's for an event, you can set a reply limit.  Anyone who replies 'yes' after this limit is reached will go onto a waiting list, which can be viewed in the details of the event.


Admins can sometimes inadvertently set an RSVP limit of zero, so check this via your team's website dashboard.   Click into the event, click 'edit' and remove or amend the RSVP limit.

I really need people who are NOT members of the team to be able to RSVP to an event this Saturday. Help!

      Hi,

      Unfortunately this is not possible. Only people who are members of your app (ie. in your member's list) can RSVP to an event you create.

      Kind regards,

          This would be a good enhancement for the future. We often invite others (sponsors, community leaders, the public) to our events or fundraisers and they should not be required to register on the app if the event is “public”. Thanks. Haley.

              Hi,

              Thanks for the suggestion and I agree at times it would be a handy addition. But it would also just give you purely a number without any identity of who has said yes. So you may get hundreds of 'yes' replies with no identity or commitment as anyone 'public' can reply, plan for that many attendees and then have only half that show up, with no idea where all the replies have come from.

              We will think about a way to perhaps require non-members to provide a name or some form of identity if replying 'yes' - but any development in this space won't be short-term.

              Thanks again for your suggestion as I agree it's a good one.

              Regards,
              Craig.

                  Did this solve your problem?
