When adding a party to the waitlist you have the option to assign them a color coded status.
The statues can represent different options for your business. For example a restaurant could different colors to represent indoor and outdoor seating. A salon could use the colors to indicate different types of services. It is flexible for you and your team to decide what you'd like the colors to represent. It makes it easy to visually distinguish different groupings of customers, and you can sort your waitlist by these colors if you like.
If you don't use the color statuses the default color is purple for all parties. The app also lets you remove colors from the Add Customer flow altogether (Tap Settings Gear icon > Customization > Adding Customers).
