Waitwhile supports some autofilling query options that can be added to the URL you use to direct customers to your waitlist check-in or booking page from your own website or other external website.

If you already have a customer portal or customer form on your website, you can use that customer data to pre-fill customer information into your Waitwhile URL.

The supported URL parameters that you can use are:

  • ?name=John Doe → Prefill guest name

  • ?firstname=John → Prefill guest first name

  • ?lastname=Doe → Prefill guest last name

  • ?phone=8881234567 → Prefill guest phone

  • ?email=john@doe.com → Prefill guest email

  • ?externalcustomerid=abc123 → Prefill guest Customer ID

  • ?partysize=10 → Prefill guest party size and SKIP this step in flow

  • ?locale=fr-FR → Set the language to e.g. French

  • ?redirect_url=yourwebsite.com → Redirect the customer to any website of your choosing after they complete the registration
