Consent Type: This is the Parent Consent Form's Title

Description: This wording is shared with the parent/guardian when they received the consent form.

Automatically Request from Guardian?:  If the user leaves this option unticked, they will have to manually select which parent will receive the consent form. Selecting this option will automatically make the consent form visible/accessible to every guardian to approve.

Updating, Declining & Confirming Consents

Clicking on the consent form will lead you to an overview page.

The top section gives you a breakdown of 'Consent Details' which can be edited by clicking on the consent name.

Student Consent

Students over 16 are able to provide their own consent for the use of their photographs and more, so now you can also record that consent in the system. Just go to a student profile and click View > Consents (or scroll down), and you can now use the green plus icon in the top right to add consents from students as well as guardians and upload any attachments as proof.
