Getting started with consent management

Learn how to set up and enable consent management.


Setting up consent management

These instructions explain how to set up consent management for the first time. The steps must be implemented in the following order as each step is dependent on the previous step:  

  1. Configure consent management for the user or user group. 
    Note: Only Editors can configure consent management. This includes creating consent form templates. For more information about user types, see How the Fotoware user types work.
  2. Enable consent management.
  3. Create at least one consent category.
  4. Create at least one consent template.
  5. Define the archive settings.

Administrative permission

Turn on the Configure consent management administrative permission for at least one group.


To do so, see Assigning administrative privileges to a group.

When this is done, the Consent Management option appears when you open Site Configuration



Tip: You may need to log out and log in again for the new settings to take effect.
