Hi all. I am returning to Marketo after several years working with Eloqua. One thing we desperately need that Eloqua has that Marketo doesn't apparently is having wait lists for Events. We have events throughout the year where we are limited in the number of people we can have attend. We have a 15-city tour coming up which would be very cumbersome to manage manually and would love some way to automate the procedure and once the attendance cap is reached people get put on a wait list and are sent an email saying the event is full. If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Josh's article has the right approach. Currently there is no way to keep an even registration counter in Marketo. We've designed something similar for another customer. The external app does not only keep a count, but will also redirect to a 'wait list' page when the event is full, and will redirect to an 'event closed' page after the event has taken place.
Thanks Jep. We're a bit under the gun with getting this thing out so I think we're going to have to do the Cvent route. This might be something to consider in the future. Hopefully Marketo can implement this as it's a pretty crucial function for us.
