Wait List Manager

The Wait List Manager add-on allows you to automate the process of capturing wait list signups when your events sell out.

View quick links for this add-on –>

If the wait list is activated on an event, and the event sells out, a button will automatically display on the event details page that encourages attendees to join a wait list. If an attendee joins the wait list and someone cancels, the wait list attendee can be auto-promoted to the next available spot.

Need to Buy a Support License for the Wait List Add-on?

Wait List Installation

This add-on requires Event Espresso 4.9.49 or newer. It cannot be used with old versions of Event Espresso 4.

This add-on is a plugin for WordPress and can be installed through your WP dashboard (WP-admin).

Download the latest version of the Wait List add-on from your Event Espresso account.

Then login to your WordPress dashboard (WP-admin) and go to Plugins. Next, click on Add New –> Upload and browse to the plugin on your computer. Then select the zip file and begin the upload process. Wait for the plugin to upload and then click on Activate.

Setup and Configuration

Login to your WP dashboard and go to Event Espresso –> Events –> Choose an event.

You’ll now be viewing the overview screen for the selected event. Scroll about half way down the page, until you see the Event Wait List settings.

Event Wait List Settings

Event Wait List Settings


Once you’ve added a wait list to an event by adjusting the value of the “Wait List Spaces” setting and the event sells out, the ticket selector is replaced and a button will be displayed on the event details page. The “Sign Up For The Wait List” button allows potential attendees to sign-up to be on the wait list if spaces open up. Spaces can open up if someone cancels or is removed from the event list.

Wait List Front-end

This image shows a sold out event with the option to sign up for the wait list:

When a registrant uses the button to sign up for the wait list, then a popover is displayed to capture the attendee information:

Once all wait list spots are taken, the “Join The Wait List” button goes away:

Sold Out Event w/o Wait List Sign Up

Sold Out Event w/o Wait List Sign Up

Manually Processing Standby Registrations

Once registrants are added to the wait list, you can easily follow-up with them or promote their registration to approved, pending payment, and more, if any spaces open up for the event.

To manually promote registrants, head on over to the Registration List table filtered for the wait list:

Wait List Registration Overview

Wait List Registration Overview

Here you can get an overview of wait list registrations, promote registrations, view registrant information, and resend notifications.

To promote someone on the wait list to an open spot, simply click on the persons name or select the box and use the bulk actions to change the status. For this example, I will click into a single wait list registration to view the details:

Wait List Registration Manual Promote

Wait List Registration Manual Promote

From there you can change the registration status and send related messages. If you are running a paid event, you can use the “Pending Payment” option to make sure the attendees pay before taking a spot in the registration list. However, if you’ve promoted multiple attendees to “Pending Payment” and only have a limited number of spaces, then the first attendees to pay will receive their spot on the “Approved” registration list.


Reducing available spaces after promoting registrants should be avoided at all costs.

Auto-promotion Settings

The Wait List Manager auto-promotion setting helps you by making sure wait list registrations are automatically promoted whenever a space opens up in the event. You can also leave some spaces on manual control if desired.

Wait List Manager Auto-promotion Settings

Wait List Messages

The Wait List Manager creates three additional messages that send when your customers sign-up for a wait list. To edit and manage the Wait List messages, login to your WP dashboard and go to Event Espresso –> Messages –> Default Message Templates.

Once on the Default Message Templates dashboard, you may need to navigate to the second page of messages. Once you are on the second page of the messages overview, you should see the newly added Wait List Messages:

From there you can edit the content of each message to meet your needs.

How to set up a class that meets weekly

When you set up an event in Event Espresso you can create multiple datetimes, which works well for classes that meet weekly or bi-weekly.

  1. You go to add a new a event or edit an existing event
  2. Scroll to the Event Tickets & Datetimes box
  3. Input the first day and time the class meets. You can optionally give this datetime a name,
    such as “Week 1”
  4. Click the Add Datetime button
  5. Input the second date’s day and time, then click on Create Datetime
  6. Repeat


  1. Setting limits for datetimes is optional if you set a Ticket Quantity and there’s only one ticket option. If there are multiple ticket options and there’s a class size limit, then it’s best to set a limit for the datetimes
  2. If you also sell “one-time” registrations for a single class, these can be set up as individual tickets that grant access to a single datetime. You click on the advanced options (gear icon ) to connect a specific ticket to a specific datetime

EE4 Automated Upcoming Event Notification add-on

Currently in Beta Testing: The add-on is available for beta testing from the pre-release channel (PRC) within your Event Espresso account page. Once you’ve signed up for the PRC, the download will be available in the EE4 tab of the PRC. users can download the add-on from our Github page (under the name “eea-automated-upcoming-event-notifications”). Please note that you might have to manually update the plugin when we roll out the full version of the add-on.

The Automated Upcoming Event Notification add-on will allow you to send a reminder email to your attendees about an upcoming event automatically. This can be used as a courtesy reminder to your guests about upcoming events and you can also customize this on a per-event basis. For example, you can automatically notify attendees/registrants three days before the start of one of your events.

View quick links for this add-on –> 


This add-on requires Event Espresso 4.9.39.p or newer. It cannot be used with old versions of Event Espresso 4.

This add-on is a plugin for WordPress and can be installed through your WP dashboard (WP-admin).

Download the current version of the Automated Upcoming Event Notification add-on for Event Espresso 4 from your Event Espresso account.

Then login to your WordPress dashboard (WP-admin) and go to Plugins. Next, click on Add New –> Upload and browse to the plugin on your computer. Then select the zip file and begin the upload process. Wait for the plugin to upload and then click on Activate.

Setup and Configuration

You will not see any new WordPress administration menus for the add-on. Upcoming Event Notifications (event reminders) are set up through the existing Messages System which can be found in WordPress admin > Event Espresso > Messages > Default Message Templates page. If you do not see them on the page, then try adjusting the pagination through Screen Options in the top right area of your screen. Increase the value to a higher number such as 25 and then click on the Apply button to save changes.

Messages - Upcoming Event Notification

Please note: if the new message templates (shown in the screenshot above) are missing, then please make sure the Email messengers are active in Event Espresso > Messages > Settings.


This add-on introduces two new message types:

Automated Upcoming Event Notification

In this message type, the automation is triggered by the threshold against the earliest date-time on the event. This is ideal if you have an event with multiple (or single) datetimes but want to send out the notifications for just the event.

Automated Upcoming Datetime Notification

In this message type, the automation is triggered by the threshold against specific date-times as opposed to individual events, which is ideal for when you are using an Event to represent multiple occurrences of that same event via datetimes.

Activating automated upcoming notifications for ALL events or datetimes

First, you need to decide if you want to send a single automated event reminder or a reminder for each datetime across ALL events. If not, then please move on to the next section. However, if you would like to have the reminders to sent automatically, on a default schedule, then simply follow these steps:

  1. Visit the WordPress admin > Event Espresso > Messages > Default Message Templates page.
  2. Choose the message automated upcoming message type you want to work with (Upcoming Event or Upcoming Datetime) and click edit.
  3. Scroll down the page a little to find the Scheduling Settings meta box in the right area of the page, where you can turn the scheduling on and set the number of days before the event or datetime to send the automated notification.

Once you have activated the scheduling, Event Espresso will email the registrants X days before the event.

Activating automated upcoming notifications for a single event

To activate the automated event reminders for a single event, visit the event editor for that event, then scroll towards the bottom of the page where you will find the Notifications panel. From there you can decide which upcoming notification (event or datetime) to send for that event, then click the Create New Custom button to create a custom automated notification for your event.

Event Editor - Upcoming Event Notification

Next, once you’ve created a custom template, click the Edit button. Then scroll down the page a little to find the Scheduling Settings meta box, where you can turn the scheduling on and set the number of days before the event (or datetime) to send the automated notification.

Once you have activated the scheduling, Event Espresso will email the registrants X days before the event.

You can then save changes to your event by clicking on the Update button in the event editor.

Default behavior across both message types:

  • The “default” templates for these message types apply globally to all events but have a toggle for turning the messages off or on globally, which ensures that if you have a more simple setup, where you just want the same template to be used across all of your events/datetimes. You can just toggle the default template on or off.
    Please note: the setting defaults to off because having both on means registrants would receive multiple “upcoming” notifications for the first datetime on an event.
  • By default, the message types will be sent to the contact details for registrants (only one email per contact, regardless of registrations sharing that contact) and would only get sent to APPROVED registrants.
  • Event specific templates can be created that will override the default and would also have an on/off toggle for the message type.
  • The ONLY option (besides the on/off toggle) for these message types is how many days before the event/datetime (depending on message type) the messages get generated and sent.
  • This will only send to approved registrations for Events that are “upcoming” or “sold out” active status. The actual query will be based on whether there’s a date in the future for an event (matching whatever optional – the only option – threshold people pick.). For the upcoming event message type (not the upcoming datetime), there will only be ONE message go out and it will get triggered against the earliest datetime for that event.
  • The shortcodes available for the templates will be the same as the registration message types because the recipients are registrations.


The plugin will not activate. Can you help?
Are you running a current version of Event Espresso 4? This add-on needs at least version 4.9.39.p to activate.

Where is the menu screen for this add-on?
This plugin does not create any new menus in the WordPress admin screen. It uses the messages setting screen along with the event editor for Event Espresso.


  • If you have ever experienced email deliverability issues with your server, or are on shared/inexpensive hosting, or emails are getting lost or marked as SPAM or junk mail? Then a transactional email service is HIGHLY recommended when using this add-on for Event Espresso 4.
  • This add-on uses Cron tasks to run scheduled callbacks or spawn cron for all scheduled events. This means that you will need a server that is capable of running Cron jobs (a unix program which runs unattended scheduled tasks).


Our support team cannot write custom coding for you. Below are some examples on customizing this add-on.

Using Contact Form 7 to create wait lists for your events

First install Contact Form 7 through the plugins manager within your site, navigate to Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add New and search for ‘Contact Form 7’. This first result should be Contact Forms 7 and looks like this:

Click ‘Install Now’ and activate, you’ll now have a ‘Contact’ section in your admin menu which you can use to generate contact forms.

Within the Contact section click ‘Add New’ to generate a new form:

Create a new form and add the details you want to see on that form, at a minimum we recommend name and email, although you can request any details you need and also include any additional text on the form, for example ‘Join the waiting list for this event?’ For example:

When any users submit the form you’ll receive an email with the details they submitted, however currently we don’t have any details of the event within the form, or the email so we won’t know which event they wish to sign up for but we can add those details within the ‘Mail’ tab.

The sections you will need to edit are ‘Subject’ (your form likely does not have a ‘subject’ field so manually set this) and then within the message body you’ll need to include details of the event. You can do this using the Contact Form shortcodes [_post_title] which shows the title of the post the form was submitted from and [_post_id] which shows the ID of the post the form was submitted from. Here is an example:

You may also want to update the text within the ‘Messages’ tab to suit, the text there is shown to users through various steps of the form.

Now you have a waitlist form within Contact Form 7 we need to use a small function to output that form on sold out events. First take note of the shortcode shown at the top of your contact form (the blue box in the screenshots above), you will need this to pull the correct form, in my example this is `[contact-form-7 id=”107″ title=”EE Waitlist”]` so we can use this function:

You can add that function to your themes functions.php file or create a Custom Functions Plugin and place it within that, be sue to use the correct shortcode to pull your form in.

Now on your sold out events you should see something like this:

Whenever a user submits the form you will receive and email from contact form 7 with the users details along with the event title and ID.
