Auto-subscription to future webinars

This article is for WebinarJam only.

Enable Auto-subscription

Auto-subscription to future webinars lets attendees register once to automatically be subscribed to all future WebinarJam events configured in your account.

Important: Subscription to new webinars requires manual action from a webinar manager when each new event is configured. While subscription will be “automatic” for the user, you control whether to complete the action in each new webinar.

To enable auto-subscription:

  • Go to the Registration step of the webinar configuration wizard
  • Open the Auto-subscription to future webinars module
  • Click Enable auto-subscription and Save the module

If enabled, the webinar registration form will display an extra check box labeled Auto-subscribe to future webinars from this host. The registrant must check the box to accept auto-subscription. This option cannot be turned on by default.

Register Auto-subscribed Users

Each time you create a new webinar, manually add auto-subscribed registrants from previous webinars to the new session.

Auto-subscribed registrants

  1. In Webinars, find the new event
  2. Click Your Links > Attendees
  3. Select a session from the drop-down under Auto-subscribe registrants from previous webinars
    • A bubble appears with the total number of auto-subscribed users registered in your account
  4. Click Subscribe to register all saved users for the selected session
    • The auto-subscription down-down and button disappear when the action is complete

Auto-subscribed registrants will receive the confirmation email with the details for your upcoming webinar: the webinar topic, scheduled date and time, their unique link to the live session, etc.

Customize the confirmation email at the Notifications step of your new webinar configuration.

Important: Auto-subscription must be enabled at the Registration step of the new webinar’s configuration or the auto-subscription option will not appear in Your Links.

Opt Out of Auto-subscription

A mandatory unsubscribe link appears in the footer of every email notification sent by your account. Registrants can click the link to opt out of future notifications for each webinar they are subscribed to.

One-click registration link

This article is for WebinarJam and EverWebinar. 

One-Click Registration

One-click registration allows people to click a link to sign up for a webinar if they are already on your mailing list.

The benefits of using one-click registration include:

  • Reduced sign-up friction, making it more likely that people will register.
  • Integration with your autoresponder, so you can apply tags or fire automation based on the link click.
  • Ability to bypass the registration page, register a subscriber to the webinar in the background, and forward the user straight to the Thank You page to get an access link for the event.

Take Note

  • An API key is required to use one-click registration. If you are not already approved to use the API, apply for a key.
    • Access to the API is not available for trial accounts. To access an API key, upgrade to a paid plan if needed.
  • The configured one-click registration link must be sent in an email from your autoresponder to contacts that already exist in the autoresponder. The registration will not work in any other context.
  • One-click registration can not be used for EverWebinar Just-in-Time or Instant Replay. On-demand session types do not have a session ID for use in the URL parameters.
  • This article refers to shortcodes, dynamic variables, and merge fields. These all refer to the same thing: a piece of code from your autoresponder that is dynamically replaced by an email subscriber’s unique information.
IMPORTANT: To maintain compliance with anti-spam regulations, one-click registration may only be used with well-reputed autoreponders using the method described in this article. Any other use or abuse of the link is forbidden and may result in the termination of your account.

Get the One-click Registration Link

In Webinars, find the webinar you want a registration link for:

  1. Click Advanced above the event module, then One-click registration
  2. Copy the registration URL into a separate window where it can be edited
    • A plain text editor is recommended to avoid any unwanted formatting

Notice that some information is URL-encoded: %40 in place of ‘@’ and %2B in place of ‘+’.

Advanced menu dialogue with the one-click registration link

One-Click URL Parameters

The one-click registration link uses URL parameters to capture a subscriber’s information and register them for your webinar.

Your default one-click link will look similar to this:

Example of one-click registration parameters

The URL is made up of two parts:

  • Base URL: https://event.webinarjam.com/register/1click/8/UNIQUE
  • Parameters: ?first_name=First&last_name=Last&email=YOU%40YOUREMAIL.com […]

The parameters portion of the URL begins with ? and individual parameters are separated by &.

Parameters Default (Replace) Description
first_name * First Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the first name of a subscribed lead.
last_name Last Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the last name of a subscribed lead.
email * YOU%40YOUREMAIL.com Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the email address of a subscribed lead.
phone_country_code %2B1 Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the phone country code of a subscribed lead.
phone_number 1234567890 Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the phone number of a subscribed lead.
timezone GMT-7 Dynamic variable from your autoresponder that will populate the timezone of a subscribed lead. The timezone parameter is only required for EverWebinar events configured to take place “under the user’s own time zone”. If that is how you’ve configured your webinar, you must enter the time zone in GMT terms (example: GMT-7, GMT+7, GMT-2, etc).
schedule_id * 1 The schedule_id is the Session number for the webinar session. Get the schedule ID from the Schedules > Webinar schedule step of the webinar configuration wizard.**

* Required fields

** EverWebinar Just-in-Time and Instant Replay sessions do not have session IDs. One-click registration cannot be used for these event types.

Configure the One-Click Link

Important: Registration fields that are required in your webinar settings must have a matching parameter in the one-click registration link in order for the attendee’s information to populate correctly. Parameters for information that is not required for registration can be removed from the URL.

Using the table provided in this article, identify the parameters that represent information you want to collect for registration to your webinar.

  • Remove any parameters you do not need.
  • Replace the default value of each remaining parameter with a shortcode or variable from your autoresponder that matches the type of information the parameter calls for.
    • The terminology for this type of code varies depending on the autoresponder you use. This type of field is typically found in email editors or builders and may be called something like: shortcode, variable, merge field, merge tags, etc.

Modification rules:

  • The section of parameters that follows the base URL must begin with the ? character. DO NOT remove the ?.
  • Individual parameters must be separated by a single & character. After modifying the link, double check to make sure every parameter is separated by a & and there a no doubles left by mistake: &&

Modified URL Examples

Examples shown using Kartra dynamic variables as the value for each parameter. Replace the defaults with the correct format from your own autoresponder.

First name and email address only:

  • https://event.webinarjam.com/register/1click/16/74qn4cw?first_name={first_name}&email={email_address}&schedule_id=1

First name, email address, and phone number only:

  • https://event.webinarjam.com/register/1click/16/74qn4cw?first_name={first_name}&email={email_address}&phone_country_code={phone_country_code}&phone_number={phone}&schedule_id=1

Get the Schedule ID

The schedule_id parameter is the Session number for each webinar session. Get the schedule ID from the Schedules > Webinar schedule step of the webinar configuration wizard.

Session numbers are the schedule ID number

In the example above, if your one-click link includes “schedule_id=2”, then the user will be registered for the webinar scheduled for 2024-07-19 at 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada).

Important: If your schedule is configured as a series of events (multiple sessions or recurring series of sessions), the end user will be registered for all webinars in the series.

Presenter and moderator access links

Send unique access links for each webinar presenter and moderator so they can join and support the event.

In Webinars, click Your links > Presenters

Presenter and moderator links

Each participant has two unique links that can be sent by email or copied to share through another channel.

Live Room is used to access the live room as the associated presenter and join the broadcast. The unique links register the presence of individual presenters as they join and create a video panel in the broadcast with their name.

Control Panel is an administrative center for the event where presenters or moderators can monitor the chat, view statistics on attendees, deploy live injections, etc.

  • Click the email icon to send a link to the associated user in an email
  • Click the arrow to immediately launch a link
  • Copy the unique link to share it with a presenter or moderator

Registration links

This article is for WebinarJam and EverWebinar.

When your webinar is fully configured, distribute the auto-generated links to start collecting registrations.

Registration is available in two formats:

  • WebinarJam-hosted page (configured in the webinar setup)

Access webinar links

Attendee registration link

The Attendees tab contains all links used by people who attend your webinar.

Registration page is a link to the default WebinarJam-hosted page.

Embed in your website gives registration form code snippets for use on external websites.

Direct link to live room is an emergency bypass link that will let an attendee skip the registration process and go straight to your live room.

  • Attendees who enter the room through a direct-to-live link cannot be recorded or tracked in the event analytics. Use this link only when tracking doesn’t matter, or there’s no other way to give the person access to your event.

Pro Tip:

Click the pencil icon to the right of the registration or direct link field to customize it. Note that the domain cannot be changed.

Customize the registration URL slug

Check your plan: Link customization is available in EverWebinar, WebinarJam Professional, and WebinarJam Enterprise.
