I am currently setting up a webinar (linked to GoToWebinar). I don't want those who register with a personal email address to be automatically sent a confirmation, so I am setting up a filter: If the email address does not contain @yahoo, @gmail etc then send the confirmation email with the URL link.
Can I go into those members who have registered with a personal email address and manually change their program status to registered if I approve them after checking them out?
Yes, go to the members tab and select change status
It would be better to route such email addresses to Wait Listed and then use that filter in the Program Members tab to decide to Change Status to Registered.
Smart List=@gmail, etc...who fill out X form on Y Page for this webinar
I think you'd be better off going with:
Great Idea about the wait list. I will add that in the flow. I assume then that the wait listed group is not sent a registration link until I manually change their status to registered in the Members tab.
Annoyingly, Marketo assumes any local form fill out in your campaign is a registration, and will automatically advance a lead through to registered status.
Again, annoyingly, you can't take this registered status off someone from a GoToWebinar perspective - they are stuck with registration whether or not you make them "Not in program" in Marketo.
