Setting up the Long Waitlist Registration Form
When you create a Mywaitlist account, a unique URL (Internet link) will be created for you. You should place this link somewhere prominently on your website. If you are unable to update your website yourself, you may need to ask whoever built your website to do this for you. If you do not have a website, you can simply email this link to parents who wish to go on your waitlist.
Parents will then be able to create a username and password, submit a waitlist request and come back at any time to update their waitlist.
