A popular feature for Formsite form owners is the Results Docs, which creates a document from individual results.

How to Limit Registrations and Create a Waitlist

Formsite waitlist examples

Formsite’s registration form templates give event managers a fast and easy way to collect ticket orders. Whether the registrations are ongoing or a one-time event, organizing registrants is essential. There are times when an event has limited capacity and the demand for spots exceeds the number available. When that happens, a waitlist can be useful.

  • “Please sign up for our waitlist
  • “Click here and we’ll wait-list your information”
