Automatically add to waitlist if a registration is full - or allow player the option

Right now, we have to manually monitor the registration numbers and enable a waitlist option when it fills. Our club has worked with other systems, including League Athletics, that had an option to "enable waitlist when full" and "require payment if waitlisted". These were all as simple as a checkbox and then it was all done for us. I would like this feature should be integrated into Sports Engine. It seems like waitlisting, especially for camps and clinics, would be a fairly common need in the sports club community. And asking webmasters to monitor numbers daily and enable a waitlist at exactly the right time doesn't seem like the best option.

    yeah, this would be great to have implemented for our 2020 Spring Baseball season!  However, we're starting up registration sign ups in a couple weeks.

    I posted this request nearly 3 years ago, with an Admin stating, "How is this not possible with the way wait-lists work today?" To my knowledge, "Wait-List" registrations are a manual process, however, could easily be incorporated as registration type or template with all the examples we have provided. In my post, I included the URL to Bluesombrero version of how they do "Wait-list" registrations. Let's get this done people!

    This would be great!   We run into this often, and there is no good method to it.  Since these are done like Inventories, well, it seems that this could be equivalent to a backorder or something?   Once over the max, their registration would go into backorder (or equivalent).  If we decide to move them onto a team, the the invoice could be automatically generated to bill the parent (Net 30, 60, 90?)

    This would be great for soccer as well. for example some of our age groups are full but others are not so we have the registration open still. if someone signs up for on of the full groups we then have to contact them and determine if they want to be on the wait list, or want a refund. It is a lot of extra work when it could be decided at the time they register.
