In some countries, you are required to ask your clients for their consent before you can send them announcements or promotions.
One easy way to get clients consent is to ask them to provide it when they contact your business through the system - when sending you a message or scheduling an appointment.
This article will review how you can add an 'opt-in' field to your Client Portal forms, and how to send announcements only to clients that have opted in.
Add an 'opt-in' field to the Client Card
When adding a field to the client card, you can also make it part of the Client Portal forms. Clients will be required to complete the form before submitting their request.
- Navigate to Settings>Client Card.
- From the Add Field section select an Opt-In for Campaigns field and click on Add.
- The default field label will say I'd like to receive promotions and special offers, but you can customize it to your language.
- Mark this field as a Required field, and also check all the options under Request from clients online.
