Pros: We like that we are able to determine who many children are on our wait lists at just a glance. We are able to keep notes about contact with the families. It is easy to use!

Overall: We are able to quickly assess how many children we have on our waiting list. I like that the children are automatically moved into the different classrooms as they get older based on the criteria we put in.

Pros: It is very easy to use and the parents can add themselves on at their convenience, it has made enrolling children easier

Cons: It's frustrating that you can't search for family and see what number they are right away, it takes too much time to find what number they are

Overall: increases enrollment

Simple, dislike new format

Pros: I like how simple it is to search for families and their contact information, and that a regular email goes out to families to ask if they want to change any information.

Cons: When you click on a child it does not display where they are on the waitlist, so you have to search through the list to find the child's name within the age category. Parent's cannot edit their own information so they have to call in for any changes that are needed (to my knowledge)

Overall: Makes keeping a waitlist easier

Pros: That I can see in the future! This helps me work on rolls for next year so that we can plan for classes early and I can project the next year's enrollment schedule.

Cons: I do not like the new format as much as I liked the old one. I am getting accustomed to the new look, but it is not as simple.

Before, everything was bold with straight columns and rows - easy to see everything. Now, my list looks all haphazard, woppy-jawed and flippity- floppity.

I have a screenshot of the way it used to be and the look of the program today, even if it might have more capabilities, makes my eyes confused. I will be happy to send you the pictures of what I am talking about - it just is a visual thing for me. I might be the only one who feels this way, but when I get into our waiting list, I spend more than an hour working in it and the larger, simple font was easier to read and the straight lines were pleasing to the eye.

Overall: Ease of access for future enrollment planning

This has saved us so much time and has made keeping track of our wait list so much easier!

Pros: It's so easy to use! You can modify the lists so they work for your specific center and it becomes so easy to see who is next on the list when a spot opens up!

Overall: Saves time and brings in money by keeping our center full!

The software made it easier to manage our waitlist.

Pros: 1. User friendly
2. Has the option to specify priorities and see the future
3. Great response time when I contacted them about getting a receipt
4. A good BASIC software

Cons: 1. The character limit under "Notes"
2. There's no space if you want to separate information and create another line/paragraph.
3. No boxes to enter the child's gender, address and parents' employment information
4. On the recently updated version, the font is smaller so it is kind of difficult and confusing to look at each child's information.
4. Date of Birth/Due Date is not showing on the main page, but it has AGE, ADDED and REQUESTED
5. When using the search box, there are times when you just have to type a part of a name and it pulls up results, and there are times when it doesn't give you any result unless you type the exact full name.
6. Downloading information of JUST a certain age group, birth month/year and/or email addresses is not possible
7. The reminder email is good, however, it mostly goes to spam or parents ignore it because they do not know the sender

Overall: Makes it easier to manage waitlist and the site can be accessed anywhere.

Much easier than the old notebook! More organized and simple to use.

Pros: No notebook to keep track of. My assistant and I can easily add to the list as people request to be added. The automatic email reminders to parents keep us in touch with the waitlist family. Organized and simple to use. Great tool to stay organized and save time.

Cons: When removing a family because they have moved out of our area, there is no option to choose this. Would like to have that added.

Overall: Saves time
Organized
Easy to maintain
Nothing to download
Can view from my phone when away from the office

Pros: It categorized by age and rolls from one age to the next as the child ages.
Easy to use.
Reports are easy to print.

Cons: I wish there was a spot to add address so labels could be printed for mail outs about registration, etc.

Pros: My favorite feature is the automatic email function, which emails my waitlist families regularly, who receive a personalized email from me letting them know they are on our waitlist. This feature helps us stay connected with our waitlist families and lets them know that they are valued.

Cons: I would like to see a inport feature added to the software., which would allow the user to upload and make changes to the current waitlist.

Overall: This software helps me manage my ever-growing and ever-changing waitlist.

DaycareWaitlist has been a very helpful resource for our busy small office!

Pros: I like the fact that students name are automatically moved up as they age and it puts them in the order they were put on the list. I also like that it will send an e-mail reminder to the families that they are still on the waiting list.

Cons: I would like to see the whole family when I click on a child's name; It would make it easier when calling the parent to notify them.

Pros: Ease of use and how quickly we were able to convert our paper applications into the software. The email reminder feature to families on the waitlist is also a wonderful feature.

Cons: The order families appear can be confusing at times. A feature that allows reports to be generated would be great.

This will keep me organized

Pros: Saw this and instantly thought how great it would be to keep me organized and be able to better help me figure out who is on the waiting list

Cons: Like anything I'm sure this program isn't perfect but at least it will help me stay organized and be able to get kids in faster
