Any user with appropriate permissions can add himself/herself to the event waiting list (up to 3 users in the queue). In case the initial event is canceled, the first user in line gets the reservation. An email notification is sent to all users in the queue to let them know about their waiting list position change. The reservation status is also updated in the Personal Agenda and, of course, in the Calendar.
If an aircraft or simulator is moved to maintenance, a reservation is moved to the waiting list. This means that if the resource maintenance is cancelled or shortened, the initial reservation is active again.
Waiting list reservations don’t have to have the same starting/ending times as the blocking reservation.
