"Need to Know" Items for GoToWebinar Connection

After creating this Tool, if you reschedule this webinar in GoToWebinar then you must remove this tool and start over for it to function properly. Deleting this tool will not remove those who previously registered. Existing registrants will remain registered for this webinar

This field map will be used in both directions. When PlusThis is used to register a record for the webinar, it will use the data (as mapped below) from your CRM to perform the webinar registration with GoToWebinar.

When PlusThis pulls the attendance data for the webinar, the map will use the data (as mapped below) from GoToWebinar to update/create contact records in your CRM. 

If you select a recurring webinar PlusThis will process attendee information automatically after each webinar session completes.

PlusThis depends on your webinar's scheduled start and end times. We recommend that you start your webinar no sooner than 30 minutes before its scheduled start time and end the webinar no later than 30 minutes after the scheduled end time. Also, PlusThis will attempt to push your attendee data to your CRM 15 minutes after your webinar's scheduled end time. If your webinar runs late (after the scheduled end time), PlusThis will check back every 15 minutes until your webinar is finished, before pushing data to your CRM.

FAQs / Tips

Implementation Types

HTTP Post

Run your tool virtually anywhere in your campaign using an HTTP post element.

1
This Tool should be triggered by an "HTTP Post" from Infusionsoft. This can be done using the Campaign Builder's "Send HTTP Post" option found on the left hand side of the sequence builder, under the "Process" section.
2
Decide where in your campaign you want to trigger this Tool. It can be part of virtually any Campaign Sequence.
3
In the Campaign Sequence, place a "Send HTTP Post" action where you want to run the Tool.
4
Use the Tool URL, provided above, in the "POST URL" field of the HTTP Post.
5
Leave the default "Name / Value Pairs" as is. There should be an entry that looks like this: contactId = ~Contact.Id~
6
Leave the Merge Fields as is. PlusThis gets all of the data necessary to run from the Contact Id Name / Value pair.
7
Mark the HTTP Post (and Sequence) as "Ready".
8
Publish your campaign changes and test! The "Send Test" button in Infusionsoft is not a good way to test PlusThis Tools. Instead, create a test contact record and push that record through the appropriate sequence.
