Waitlist Export Option

We need the ability to export our waiting list participants into an excel spreadsheet. Currently it only pulls the class registrants with no option to add or pull the waiting list.

Hello, dear supporters!
We’re happy to announce that now, in version 6.17, the Waitlist Export option is available for all our clients.

Now you can include waitlisters in your regular export file along with other registrants.

Check our help page for more information about these changes and others, that we added in this release – https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/1662

    I have 65 on the waitlist for an event. it is not practical to deal with them one at a time. Please work on the ability to export a list. Would be even better if the waitlist was searchable in contacts.

  • Chuck Tyger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We are a small organization and most times our wait list is small. Hosts for our events can and do make exceptions. Providing that information to hour hosts now is strictly a manual effort now.

  • Jeanne Huber commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We often have multiple similar events with waitlists and would like to be able to email ALL the waitlists at once, sorted to remove duplicates, when we post a new event. The best solution would be to have an advanced search option that allows "waitlisted for specific events" (like we have now for "registered for specific events." But if that's not possible, it would at least help to be able to export waitlists to Excel and do the sorting there.

    You must be able to EXPORT the wait list like you can the registrants. We have to add criteria for selection in excel, but I cannot export, because I can't export the wait list information.

  • Tammie Tippie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Need to have the ability to export all people on a past or present waitlist giving the class name, date, and their contact info by searching the entire site, not just remembering which classes had waitlist and having to export individually from each class.

  • Endres commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    If you can export the registration list then you should be able to do the same with the waitlist. Please fix this as it’s a flaw. The capability should work on all the event lists.

    I can’t see my waitlist! We really need to be able to see it as a list and export to excel in the same manner as registration list. Our waitlists are for classes. It should be a very easy fix. Please add the feature as I’m certain it was accidentally omitted.

  • David Yarusso commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I wholeheartedly agree. The inability to export the registered as well as the waitlist is a serious lack of capability.

  • Ines Arismendi (iwcb.org) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Just like "export registrants" which we use all the time to help the event organizer, an "export waitlist" would be super-useful. Currently we do screenshots, or copy the waitlisted members one by one - PLEASE let us export the waitlist!

  • IWA Media commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be great if we could
    1. Export the list of waitlisted members
    2. List of registered and waitlisted is automatically emailed to event chair upon closing of registration

  • Brian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes we need this to. Just a check box on Export Registrants to include wailisted people would just fine

  • Bob Oswald commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We have many people, without admin rights, managing our events. The need to export the wait list is very high. It is a way to get the list with email and phones to the people who need it.

  • Women in Animation commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There are a few things that would make the new event and waitlist features even more useful for my organization's needs. Firstly, if we could set a limit to the number of guests a member/user can list. Secondly if members/users could edit their registration (i.e. cancel, change guest information) up until a certain point. I would love to be able to set a cut off point when users are no longer able to edit their registration. Additionally, it would be very helpful if there was an export option on the waitlist.

    Keep up the great work Apricots!
