Hi Lee,

Can you please make sure you have added “Wait List Spaces” within the events?

For that, you need to edit the event and scroll down to the “Event waitlist” section and there you can add the required amount under “Wait List Spaces”:

Also, if you want you can set the “Auto Promote Registrants” to “Yes” so that when you have added more spaces to the ticket the waitlist will automatically promoted/added to the ticket.

Hope that helps.

All the available tickets for one camp are fully booked but there are more tickets available in other camps. Are you saying ALL camps must be full in order for the wait list to show up?

Waitlist button only shows up when all the available ticket is purchased.

here’s the documentation

If you want to create a registration and their status set to waitlist by default, then you can choose this option.
