SharpSpring enables you to integrate your GoToWebinar account to collect information on webinar attendees with SharpSpring forms. Dynamic forms pass first name, last name, and email address information to GoToWebinar. This article will detail how to integrate GoToWebinar with SharpSpring.
The following user roles can modify GoToWebinar settings in SharpSpring:
Adding a GoToWebinar App

- Log in to GoToWebinar's developer web page.
Note: You must have a GoToWebinar license before proceeding.
- In the top toolbar, click My Apps.
- Click Add a new App.
- Insert the following information:
• App Name:
• Product API:
• Application URL:
Note: Replace YourCompanyDomain with the domain you are using with SharpSpring. For example, if Franco's Franks, Inc. is using SharpSpring, their domain may be https://francosfranksinc.marketingautomation.services/settings/gotowebinar/save.
Be aware that the integration will not work unless the application URL is correct.

Creating GoToWebinar Forms
After integrating GoToWebinar with SharpSpring, you need to add the GoToWebinar field to a SharpSpring form to gather information on attendees. When a visitor finishes filling out the form, they will be registered for the associated webinar.
To create a connected form for GoToWebinar, do the following:
- Create or modify a form.
- In the form's Fields tab, click the Fields drop-down menu.
- Add the following fields:
• First Name
• Last Name
• Any other applicable fields
- Click the GoToWebinar drop-down menu.
- Select the webinar to add to the field.
Note: Do not make the GoToWebinar field hidden.
- Click the Required checkbox for the following fields:
• First Name
• Last Name
Once a form is created, be aware that changes to existing webinar names in GoToWebinar will require re-saving the form in SharpSpring to reflect the changes in the live version of the form.
