Waiting Room keeps wait times low by dynamically managing traffic. As soon as a user leaves an application or their cookie expires, a new user is let in.
Set activation thresholds based on incoming rate of traffic or total active users. Admit queued visitors using multiple queuing options — first-in-first-out, random, or lottery.
Customize your Waiting Room experience with custom HTML and CSS, multiple languages, and more branding options. Getting set up is extremely easy and you have complete control.
Waiting Room continually syncs data across global points of presence in seconds so wait times are always up to date
Waiting Room remembers users for as long as their cookie is valid, so they do not lose their place in line
Dictate your own custom application thresholds, session duration limit, queueing methods, and more
