GotoWebinar add to calender email and token

Hi!

I would appreciate your urgent reply (help)!

I am sending a confirmation email from Marketo and am facing these 2 issues:

- Can't seem to create calendar events for the different calendars (google, iCal and outlook).

- The Save the date token is not populating the {{webinar.member url}}

so when someone ads this to their calendar - they get not link attached but the unpopulated token.

Thanks in advance!

Can you move this to Products​ please? (Move link at the right.)

To start with, the {{member.webinar url}} (you have it backwards in your example) isn't available immediately. Unfortunately, much as I hate arbitrary/useless Wait steps, in this special case you should pause ~5 minutes to ensure the data has been written back to Marketo.

We send confirmations via Marketo using 3 text tokens for Google, Outlook and iCal that use the URL structure from GoToWebinar's confirmation emails:

The tokens are part of our program template so they just clone over and never have to be updated...you just have to create/update the Event Number token. We haven't had success with using these on thank you landing pages, likely because of the delay Sanford mentioned.
