How to set up the Eloqua app with RingCentral

There are three key parts to setting up the Eloqua Integration:

  • Setting up a form in Eloqua
  • Using the above form in the events in Eloqua
  • Configuring the app in RingCentral

Guide for setup in Eloqua

To import registrations from Eloqua to RingCentral or for exporting the data from RingCentral to Eloqua we can use the same form.


You can also use one form to send the registration data from Eloqua to RingCentral and another form to export the data from RingCentral to Eloqua.


Note: Please be aware that we would be posting the data to the form that would be chosen during the configuration of the app at RingCentral in later stages.

 

If you want to use only one form for both import and export, you can follow the steps below

  • Login to your Eloqua account. On the top panel, click on the house icon and click on Forms from the drop down menu that appears.

  • Click on Create a Form, or use an existing form.
    • This form will be used to export all the data from RingCentral.
    • The form will need to have the fields to capture First Name, Last name, and Email. Create a hidden field for storing the RingCentral Magic Link (the event invite for the participant).
    • The form will also need to have a field that contains the RingCentral Ticket Integration Code(s).
    • If you only have a single ticket for your event, you can add this as a hidden field in the form that pushes the Ticket Integration Code to the field you have chosen to hold this value.
    • If you have multiple ticket types, you can have a form element type “Single picklist” that holds the Integration Codes as stored values
    • This will push the stored values to your Ticket Integration Code field when the form is submitted by a participant.
    • If you want to capture more information related to attendee status, UTM parameters or custom form Qs & As configure the hidden fields as required.

Testing the Eloqua Integration

Testing Import Registrations:

  • You'll need to make sure the correct Ticket Integration Code is being used when a registration is created. RingCentral's Ticket Integration Code can be found by selecting an event, and navigating to Registration > Tickets in your event dashboard. You'll need to copy the ticket URL, paste it anywhere, and copy the 'code' portion as in the second image below:

  • The value that is copied over is added to the Ticket Integration Code field that you have created for that purpose in the import form. In this example, we'll use the Ticket Integration Code as a single picklist option in a Eloqua form:

  • When you're done, save the form.
  • Click on Processing.

  • Select Post Data to server option.

  • Paste the URL that was copied in step 6 during the setup of the app at RingCentral and also map the fields for first name, last name, email and ticket id.

  • Once done click on Save.
  • Click on Actions and select View Form HTML as below. Copy the code and embed it somewhere in an editor and create a registration through form.

  • Complete the form, and verify that the data has been submitted to the form.

Screenshot_2022-11-08_at_10.20.15.png

  • If you are using the same form for both export and import then you would see that the magic link is created for that registration and posted to the same form.
  • If you have used a diff form for submitting the registrations than which was selected at the configuration of the app at RingCentral then the magic link would be posted to that form.

Screenshot_2022-11-08_at_10.23.21.png

  • You can then go to your Event Dashboard > People > Magic Link Invites page in your RingCentral event to confirm that the person has been added there as well:

Congrats, you've successfully set up registration imports!

 

Testing Export Functionality:


If you have configured the fields during the app setup at RingCentral, once the guest registers or attends the event in RingCentral, the status of the guest will be updated to registered and attended respectively. Also if you have configured fields for UTM parameters or custom registration Qs & As they will also be exported to the form.
