2. Scroll down to the bottom of your table of list fields
3. Add a new custom field “Consent”
4. Then select Small Text

6. Confirm you see green notification “List field information saved”
7. Click Lists up in the blue toolbar again. Then click Opt-in Forms

9. Click Design Your Form
10. Click Add New Field
11. Click the dropdown and select Custom.
12. Then type in “Consent” to the textbox. Make sure it exactly matches the custom list field you added above.
13. Select field type Checkbox from the dropdown.
14. Add a form label with information about what they are consenting to.
15. Make sure you DO NOT make the checkbox a required field. This would prevent contacts from denying consent.
16. Click Next
17. Click on the Publish tab
18. Copy the HTML and place on your website. You can see the opt-in form by copying the URL on the first line of code
19. Now that your form is published, you can distinguish consented contacts by going to your Master List, searching for a contact, and viewing member details.
If Consent = 1, it means the contact consented.
If Consent = 0 or is empty, contact has not consented.
All old contacts will not have a value in this field until they update it.
