In ChurchDesk we have made it simple to manage consent. Essentially you can quickly create the consent statements that you would need. Everything from photo consent to consent for promoting the activities in your church.

Create consent statement

Before creating your consent statement, you need to have a webpage where your contact can read what they're agreeing to when giving their consent.

You can choose to either set up a regular page on your ChurchDesk website or, if you already have a consent statement as a document, upload it to your ChurchDesk file archive and link to it directly.

  1. Go to the homepage
  2. Click the green (+) create button and chose "Page"
  3. Giv the page a title and write the information about the consent
  4. Scroll down to the bottom and save the page
