Maybe a few tables are lingering a bit too long or maybe you are lucky enough to have a plush area for guests to relax in before their meal. Either way, did you know that you can add bookings to a waitlist in simpleERB?add bookings to a waitlist

When your diner arrives, locate their booking on your screen and open the booking details screen.

On the right hand side, you’ll see a drop down menu. Open the menu and select Not yet seated – Add to waitlist. You can add the designated waitperson and the customer’s location too if you want.

Remember to save the booking.


When you go back to your bookings screen, you’ll notice that waitlist at the top of the page will now have a number next to it. Expand waitlist and you’ll see who is in your waitlist and how long they’ve been waiting.


When you’re ready to seat them, click available tables, and choose where they are to be seated.

Add bookings to a waitlist… another simple solution from simpleERB.





We just wanted to share some light relief with you this Friday courtesy of the clever folks at yelldesign. Drawing on their mutual love of food and papercraft, they have produced a series of videos that look good enough to eat. Papermeal is a collection of videos showing the ‘cooking’ of some of their favourite meals. We are particularly fond of the fish and chips video, but it would be unfair of us to pick a favourite! They are all great!


Now, a weekend of papercraft or maybe I’ll just stop for Fish and Chips on the way home tonight…
