There may be instances when the time you want to select for your appointment is taken or or the class session you want to attend is completely booked, in these cases TimeTap has created a waitlist feature to allow you join the waitlist and notify you if a time slot or a seat in the class become becomes available. 




How to join the waitlist


 If the time you want to book is not available and the business you're booking your appointment with offers the option to join a waitlist you'll see the following message under the times that are currently available "Click here to join the Wait List for another date/time" (it may read differently, depending on the business you're booking with, but it will always be a blue teal link under the timescalendar). Click this link to see for which time slots you can join the waitlist:

At this point you will have the option to join the waitlist for unavailable time slots, specific time slots (1) or for the first available time (2). Choosing to join the waitlist for the first available time slot will make it so that you'll be notified via email and/or text message about every time slot becomes available regardless of the date and time. Keep in mind that the business you're booking with may not offer the option to join the waitlist for the first time available spot:
