Introduction

For those using GoToMeeting, GoToTraining and GoToWebinar for web training, your Docebo LMS can integrate with these tools, so your users can access live training sessions directly in webinar courses in their Docebo platforms. This integration is available for Docebo Enterprise plan and Growth plan clients.

Please Note: At this time, GoToWebinar does not support launch URL, thus webinars hosted by GoToWebinar cannot be launched (started) from directly inside your Docebo LMS, but users can still access these webinars directly from the LMS. Please check back for more updates soon.

You must have an active GoToMeeting account (not a trial account) and remain in agreement with the terms and conditions in your contract in order to successfully configure this integration.

Activating the GoToMeeting App in Docebo

Begin by logging into your Docebo LMS as the Superadmin, then access the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner and press the Add New Apps button in the menu. Once you’re in the Apps and Features area, select the Web Conferencing tab in the tabs menu on the left side of the page. In the list of apps in this tab, find GoToMeeting, then select the Try It For Free button.

In the pop up box, read the description, then press Try It For Free. The app is now activated in your platform and you can configure the integration.

Configuring the GoToMeeting App in Docebo

To begin, access the Admin Menu by scrolling your mouse over the gear icon. Then, find the GoToMeeting section, and press the Manage item. On the settings page, begin by pressing the New Account button in the Accounts section.

In the pop up box, fill out all of the information, retrieving it from your GoToMeeting developer account. Follow this link if you need assistance from GoToMeeting. Refer to the section below to learn how to get this info from GoToMeeting.

Please note that the number of concurrent rooms is the one agreed in your GoToMeeting licence. 

Configuring the Integration in GoToMeeting

You can create a developer account on GoToMeeting by following this link. Once you’re logged into your developer account, Go to the My App area, then press the Add a New App button.

You will then be prompted to fill out a page similar to the one pictured below. You will need to add your application name, description, which system you’ll integrate (GoToMeeting, GoToTraining, or GoToWebinar), and the URL of your LMS. Please note that the URL set in the Application URL field must be the URL from which the authorization request is made. If you are using the Custom Domain App, remember to fill the Application URL field with the custom domain URL, do not use the SaaS URL. When you’re finished, select the Create App button.

Best Practices

Keep the following best practices in mind when using the GoToMeeting integration:

  • Make sure you have set your role as an organizer in GoToMeeting, or you will not be able to create video conference sessions from the platform.
  • In order to run a web conference, all of the webinar attendees must be associated with an email address in the users’ details area. Users with no email address will not be able to access the webinar. Learn more about creating users in your Docebo LMS.
  • If you need to change or remove your account in GoToMeeting, please make sure that there are no active or scheduled webinar sessions using that account in your LMS.
