The waiting room is a way to keep track of the students that check in for drop in appointments. When a student checks in for a drop in appointment they will be added to the waiting room in the order that they check in. To start an appointment with a student in the waiting room click Start Appointment. To cancel an appointment with a student in the waiting room click Cancel Drop-in.
Handshake recommends that you keep the waiting room open in a separate tab when you are taking drop in appointments. If you have a place to have the waiting room visible in the lobby of the career center, it is a great way to let students know where they are in line for appointments.
To open the waiting room:
- Click Appointments on the left navigation bar
- Click Waiting Room from the tabs at the top of the screen
- Example of the waiting room:
