Work with the Waiting List in enforePOS

  • Updated

If there is no table available in your restaurant at the moment, you can put guests who come without a reservation on the waiting list via the reservation module in enforePOS. This way you can keep track of all your waiting guests and work through them in order as soon as the next table is free. 

To get an accurate overview of which tables are actually free when you add a new reservation, deactivate the Allow overbooking option in the Reservation Settings.


The Active Reservations section displays your restaurant's occupancy.

To add a customer to the waiting list, create a new reservation:

  1. In the POS menu, open Reservations > Active Reservations.
  2. Tap [+].2_EN.png⮕ The Select window opens.
  3. Select a service.3_EN.png⮕ The Details window opens.
