If you'd like to attend a session as an attendee, you'll first need to register for the session using the Registration URL in your GoToWebinar invitation. After you register, you'll receive a confirmation email with information on how to join the session when it's time.

Register to attend a session

2. Click the Registration URL to open the registration form.

3. Fill out all required fields, including your first name, last name and email address. Then click Register.

4. Once you've successfully registered, you'll see a Registration Confirmation page.

  • If the organizer sets up automatic approval, you'll immediately receive a confirmation email with information on how to join the session.
  • If the organizer sets up manual approval, the organizer must first approve your registration before you'll receive a confirmation email.

You can add a GoToWebinar appointment to your calendar as a reminder to join the session at the specified time and date.

  • If you're registering for a webinar sequence, you can use the same Join URL to join all sessions.
  • If you're registering for a webinar series (where you can choose which sessions to attend), you must use a different Join URL to join each session.The Join URLs will be provided in the confirmation emails that you'll receive for each session once you register.
