For Call Aheads:

Call Aheads are based one whether there are any live guests waiting on your Waitlist in the app. When there is no wait, your online widget for Call Aheads will look like the image at right.






When you do have a live wait, guests will click Get In Line and simply add in their name, party size and phone number to add them selves to the Waitlist. They will see a confirmation on the screen when their request is received.


























When your widget is live on your site your guests simply put in their party size, date and time and click Continue. Then, they enter their name and phone number along with any notes if applicable.

After clicking on Make Reservation, they will see a confirmation and will also receive a text message. If the reservation is for another day, they will receive a reminder text the day of the reservation. The guest now appears under that date on the reservations tab of the app.
