Consent management overview

Get an overview of the components that make up a consent workflow.


The handling of consent for the use of pictures and other media is central to many organizations and is often time-consuming.
By creating consent templates directly in FotoWare and obtaining the user consent electronically through our apps, it is possible to create a complete consent management workflow that integrates with your existing workflows.

Steps involved in creating a usage consent workflow

Creating a usage consent workflow in FotoWare involves three steps:

  1. Creating the consent form templates. These are the forms with the consent description that are presented to a recipient when obtaining their consent for use.
    A consent form typically contains a usage description and a number of consent categories as well as fields for information about the signee - the person intended to sign the consent form.
  2. Obtaining consent for use via a web browser or the FotoWare Mobile app.
    A photographer can, for example, use the FotoWare Mobile app to open the consent form and have the signee sign directly on their device, or a link can be sent to allow the person to sign the form in a standard web browser.
  3. Managing consent
    Pending consent forms as well as submitted consent forms are available on a separate consent management page in FotoWare, where extensive filtering makes it possible to quickly obtain the consent and review it when the need arises.
