Add Opt-In Checkbox


Add Opt-In Checkbox

Hello. My company is currently trying to comply with the new GDPR regulations and have found that we need an explicit opt-in checkbox for our email sign-up form. However, I can't find any way to add one. Even trying to add custom fields only gives me text or date inputs, no checkboxes. Is there a menu I missed somewhere or is there truly no way to add a checkbox input?


Thank you for taking the time to consider my question.


Hello @ElainaH49,


Thank you for reaching out to the community!


I understand that you are looking to add a checkbox for the sign-up form; however, this is not a function that is available right now. I apologize for any inconvenience. By filling out this form your contacts are giving permission to email them. For details about GDPR and the requirements, I recommend reviewing this help article.


I hope this helps. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
