Note: To use the webinar variables in emails, landing pages, segmentation, etc.n you must request the activation of this feature to the Webmecanik support.
With the synchronization between Webmecanik Automation and GotoWebinar, you can retrieve the contacts who registered / participated to your webinars and send them to your Webmecanik Automation database. You can also register your contacts to webinars using Webmecanik Automation forms.
Of course, it requires a GoToWebinar account.
