Form: Add a consent check box

Learn how to add a consent check box to your pages and forms.


You can add consent text to your survey that respondents can check to agree to.

The consent block helps demonstrate consent for privacy regulations, such as the EU's GDPR and CASL.

If your page or form is assigned to a contact data field then the consent data is stored as ConsentInsight against the contact.

When you export a page or form containing consent, the export includes the text and whether it was agreed to or not.
