To configure the communication consent sections within your booking system, navigate to Config > Settings in the top menu, and select the “Messaging” tab.
Consent Duration (months)
The default consent duration, in months. Consent expiry will be calculated based upon this value. Adding consent within VGM will default the expiry date to this number of months past the current date.
SMS / Email Label
The labels that display next to the SMS and Email checkboxes within the booking system. Suggestions for this field would be simply “SMS” or “Send me SMS Messages”.
Whether or not the SMS and Email checkboxes within the booking system are pre-ticked by default when loaded. GDPR guidelines require that consent checkboxes are opt-in, therefore not pre-ticked by default, so we recommend leaving these un-ticked.
The preamble is the text that appears before the SMS and Email checkboxes within the booking system. You may wish to customise this to be more specific about which types of messages are affected by granting or withholding consent.
