Waiting Lines

AccuCampus allows you to create wait lines for locations, specific services at a location, specific courses at a location, and specific staff members at a location. Additionally, wait lines can be made “virtual” meaning that students can add themselves to a wait-line via the mobile-app rather than signing in at the location itself. This allows students to better manage their time, and centers to better manage their space. Before waiting lines can be created, you must first have built locations, services, courses, and sign-in stations.

There are some built-in notifications for waiting lines; however, you can use Rules to create new or more specific notifications for your waiting lines. This could include messages for virtual waiting lines providing an estimated wait time and notifications when the center is ready for the student.

Create Line

Name - This is the name for the Waiting Line.

User is unknown - Use this option if you do not know who the Student was but you need to create a Session Log (for headcount purposes).

Location - This is the Location that you want this Waiting Line to be associated with.

Description - This is an optional field to add a Description.

Active - This option marks the Waiting Line as Active(checked) or Inactive(unchecked).

Tracking Information You can set this line to a specified service, event or staff member. Whenever attendees sign-in they will be put in the corresponding line based on what they select. This way you can have multiple waiting lines at the same time in the same location. If you want to have a single line in the specified location, leave the next fields empty.

Service - Use this option to set a Default Service.

Course - Use this option to set a Default Course.

Staff - Use this option to set a Default Staff.
