With waiting lists, users can register on the list to wait
for a computer to become available. Users may elect to wait for
a specific computer, or they may request the next available
computer. When a user reaches the top
of the list , that user will be assigned a computer that is
reserved exclusively for their use.
Users are assigned generic sequence numbers to protect their
privacy on the waiting list display. The display is available on any computer via the
functions, or you may choose to set up one computer as a "kiosk" to allow users
to register on the waiting list as well as monitor the status of the list.
Additionally, marquee systems
are available that will allow
you to make the waiting list status viewable from virtually
anywhere in the facility.
