I can't join my session
If you're having trouble connecting to your webinar, try some of the troubleshooting tips listed below.
First, select the situation that's most applicable to you:
If the software installation was stalled or unsuccessful, the most likely culprit is a firewall or browser issue. Whether you're trying to get into session ASAP or you're trying to prepare for a future session, we've got multiple options laid out for you.

If you successfully accessed the GoToWebinar software but encountered an error when you tried to connect to your webinar, it's possible that one of the following scenarios occurred.
- The webinar is full. If you are trying to join a session but received a message stating "The GoToWebinar is full", then the session already has the maximum number of attendees that are allowed. You will not be able to join the session unless one of the attendees who has already joined leaves the session. Learn more.
- You are waiting for the organizer to start the meeting.If you are trying to join a session and see a screen that says "Waiting for organizer", then you have successfully connected to the session! The organizer is the individual who is hosting the session (i.e., they scheduled it and invited you to it), so if you joined the session before they did then you can just sit tight until they get there. We call this the "Hallway", because you have arrived to the session but are still waiting for the organizer to "open the door" so you can come in. Learn more.
- The webinarID is invalid.If you are trying to join a session and encounter "The webinar ID is invalid" message, it means that the webinar ID you entered does not match with the session you are trying to join because it is incorrect, was mistyped, or the webinar ID has expired.Learn how to fix it.
- The password you entered is incorrect.If you were invited to attend another person's webinar and are asked to enter a GoToWebinar password when joining, it means that the organizer who scheduled the session has password-protected the it for added security. This does not mean that you need to log in to a LogMeIn account; you just need to enter the password that the organizer set. Learn how to fix it.
