Member.webinar URL on a Landing Page

Hi everyone,

I put a {{member.webinar url}} token on my webinar program's confirmation of registration/ Thank You landing page in case they register last minute and would like to access webinar directly from landing page.  However, when testing the page the URL will not display and instead the token's default value is displayed.

I'm not sure why token works in the email but not the landing page. 

Thanks for your help!  - Tom

Hi Tom,

No, AFAIK, it will not work on an LP.

Create a program token, cope /paste the URL in it and put that token on your LP.

Thanks for fast reply Greg,

I thought about doing that but the URLs are going to be different for every member of program who registers.  But I think there is also a generic one for all attendees to use.  I'll try using that one instead.  Thanks again!

When you say testing the LP, how did you test it?

Did you preview it in Marketo editor?

Or

Did you actually went through the flow as a test lead?

In preview, the tokens will not be evaluated and will be merged as their default values

Here is what Marketo says: Include a Calendar Event ICS File in a Landing Page - Marketo Docs - Product Docs

What i am interested in is if i put the token {{member.webinar url}} into an ics file on a landing page, will the webinar URL be added?

Are you using GoToWebinar?

Re: Member.webinar URL on a Landing Page

The webinar.url token won't work in a landing page because there is not enough time for Marketo to send the registration information to the webinar provider and then receive back the unique URL. In my experience, you want to only include it in confirmation emails, and even then I typically put a 5-10 minute wait step on there before sending it out to ensure it is going to work every time.
