How do I set up an apply-to-attend event page?
Whether you're looking to approve event attendees or just collect initial interest, you can set up your event to be an apply-to-attend page. By using a waitlist first instead of after your event, your guests automatically end up in the Guests tab, awaiting a coveted confirmed spot.
Think of it as a virtual velvet rope. It's your club now!
1. Close RSVPs on the event page in the Form tab.
2. Activate the Waitlist feature.
Default waitlist text will appear on the button, but you can change it to say whatever you'd like. Fan favorites are "Are you interested in attending?" or "Apply to Attend."
You can customize the button text for each stage of your event. How do I design my RSVP button to look different when RSVPs are Open, Closed, or on Waitlist?
3. From the Confirmations tab, edit the Waitlist confirmation messaging guests will receive, both On-Page and via email.
4. Once a guest is approved, add them to the confirmed list in the Guests tab. Check out how to do so here: How do I move someone from waitlist to the confirmed RSVP list?
