Your integration is now set up.

Adding Auto-registration Links to Emails

When editing an email after setting up the WebinarJam integration, choose Insert and select the WebinarJam auto-registration link option

In the resulting modal, you can now choose between any of your upcoming webinars:

Note that only webinars that have been scheduled sometime in the future will be listed. Past webinars will not. If you don't see your webinar in the list, make sure you have a schedule set up in WebinarJam.

When you've found the webinar you want people to be able to register for, click "Insert link" and a link will be inserted into the email with the name, date and time prefilled by default. Feel free to change the title of the link it's the URL that's important.
