Hello everyone,

I had created a form ( application) in Airtable to take register vendors for a farmers market.

I am at full capacity and need to temporarily pause the application ( form link) that has been widely circulated.

I want to start a waitlist of some sort that will be stored in a separate base.

any suggestions will be helpful.

thank you,

I would duplicate the form view, then in the original form remove all the fields and change the text at the top to be a warning about registration being full. When you can accept new rsvps then you can use the “copy another view’s configuration” option to replicate what was there before.

Deleting a form view or creating a new link will break whatever link you sent out previously.

I would leave the form but create a label or a thank you message that mentions they are on a waitlist.

Then create a status to differentiate your farmer markets in the waitlist from the “active” ones, and change the status on the form so that they can only see and select “Waitlist.”


I hope that it helps
