Integration with GoToWebinar's Simulated Live Feature

GoToWebinar currently offers a 'simulated live' beta feature which allows you to present recordings as webinars. However, HubSpot cannot currently sync these over!

I upgraded my GTW because of the Simulated Live functionality. If HubSpot isn't going to ensure that the 'Simulated Live' feature isn't intergrated - that's a problem for our webinar strategy. Our webinar strategy is a large component of our CRM.

 

Hope this integration is completed in this quarter. How different is a Live Webinar as opposed to a Simulated Live webinar? From my standpoint, it looks the same within GTW when the webinar is created. Curious as to the difficultly level here and also the HubSpot Ops teams roadmap along with the ability to get things done quickly.

 

Please, pretty please?

GoToWebinar should be pushing for this because people are leaving their platform, not HubSpot's, to achieve this functionality. Pretty frustrating to basically have no compatibility if running a Simulated Live webinar. Will have to use Zapier to achieve getting GTW attendance and did not attend data.

This integration is really needed. Simulated Live webinars were introduced by GoToWebinar in March of 2017 and there has been no movement forward to introduce the integration on Hubspot's part. Stop changing the menu bar and work on the integration.

I also agree we need this integration. It stops us from being able to properly track registrants - and especially to see the new leads that come in. I hope there will be an update that this integration will happen!

I've noticed that you can sync contacts and information with Simulated-Live webinars after they've already occured. 

 

However, this is a huge pain if you need to get ahead of marketing to folks registered prior to the webinar. 

 

HubSpot please consider making this upgrade soon!

Who wants to bet Hubspot is stalling on this because they have their own simulated live webinar feature they're going to roll out?

 

Otherwise why would they wait on this? Hubspot reps and advocates alike (e.g. Neil Patel) all toute how crucial Simulated Live webinars are as a lead gen tactic at all the HUG events.

 

To the laymen dev person (which I surely am), it feels like syncing Simulated Live contacts from GotoWebinar should be more like flipping a switch than developing an entirely new system? 

 

I dunno - just feels like this feature should have happened much sooner than it has taken, since I've been following this thread for over a year now.
