Create a GDPR compliant form with checkbox

Please note that we do not provide general legal advice and can only make recommendations for which we assume no liability.

We recommend that you contact your legal advisor regarding the GDPR, as you are responsible at this point.

This article explains how to add a checkbox to a form so that it is mandatory. And how a linkable text can be arranged directly below.

Please also take a look at the general instructions for forms here.

Let's create a form like this one:

/hc/article_attachments/360004809554/dwe_Snap_2018.05.08_10h02m48s_005_.png

 For this you need the elements "Checkbox" and "HTML".

/hc/article_attachments/360004847533/dwe_Snap_2018.05.08_10h04m56s_009_.png

The HTML element is below the checkbox.

You can link, for example, your Privacy Policy in the HTML element . This is only possible in an HTML element.

Just click on it to create one. A new element appears at the bottom of your form. Drag it to the right place. Click on the element to edit it und place a link:

/hc/article_attachments/360004847713/dwe_Snap_2018.05.08_10h03m34s_007_.png

The checkbox is a little more complex.

Click on the item and configure it as follows:

/hc/article_attachments/360004807894/dwe_Snap_2018.05.08_10h04m01s_008_.png

Determine the headline in "Description" and at the very bottom the text, that you want to appear next to the checkbox. Also don't forget to determine a data field in which the click and the text should be saved.

Select that the check box is a mandatory field. Now the form can only be sent if this box is ticked.

The most important setting is the margin to the bottom. Select a negative margin, I have determined -35 pixels.

This moves the following HTML field closer to the checkbox, so that it looks like the text belongs to the same element.

Click [Save] to pass the checkbox to the form and drag it across the HTML area.

Now your form looks as the one shown at the beginning.
