Also add 3 Hidden Fields (from the Custom Fields list):-
Ensure that each of these fields has the correct “HTML Name” value:-
Use the Pre-Population button (third from the left) on the Hidden Field Properties panel to set a static value for the 3 Hidden Fields. These should be set as follows:-
wrk_redirectsuccess = https://www.workcast.com/registerthanks.aspx
wrk_redirectfailure = https://www.workcast.com/registerthanks.aspx
wrk_datatype = dcdcfr
Please change the https://www.workcast.com sections in the above example for the wrk_redirectsuccess and wrk_redirectfailure fields to match your URL mask.
*Please note that the active option is shown with a light blue background.

The meid in the URL should be set to the WorkCast Managed Event Id.
The pak in the URL should be set to the pak code of the WorkCast Event.
The ‘Meid’ (Managed Event Id) and ‘Pak’ (Public Access Code) values can be found in the Event Session Summary section of the WorkCast Platform. The ‘Pak’ is shown at the end of the Form URL value.
The Field Mappings should be set as follows:-
