  1. Click on the ‘Add consent form’ button. 

  1. In the ‘Create New Consent Form’ window, specify the details of the consent form.

  1. Click ‘Create New Form’ to create a form. Once the form is created, the status of the form will be changed to ‘Draft’ and it will be displayed in the Consent Forms overview.

Once the form is created, you need to add the form text and set the relevant form properties. This can be done in the ‘Content’ and ‘Settings’ tabs. It is also possible to Preview your form and Download it in pdf format.


On the ‘Content’ page, you are able to define the form text, add checkboxes and signature statements, and preview and publish your consent form.

Form text: here you can include the form text and format the text

Checkboxes: allows you to add checkboxes to the end of your form. Click ‘Add Checkbox’ to add a new checkbox. When adding a new checkbox, you need to specify whether a checkbox is required, include the checkbox statement and its label. The label of the checkbox is relevant for the Subjects overview, so you can see at a glance whether a participant ticked that box before signing.

Signature Statements

In this section you can define both subject and investigator signature statements.

When editing a form, you need to click on the ‘Save changes’ button to make sure that all the changes are saved. 

Publishing the form

Once you have finished editing the form, you can publish the form by clicking the ‘Publish’ button. Once the form is published,  it will no longer be possible to edit the content. Please ensure you have completed the necessary review and approval processes prior to publishing. Click ‘Publish now’ to publish the form. You can still modify the form settings after publishing.


In the ‘Settings’ page, you can change the form settings such as Form name, Country, Site(s), Language, Version number and Version date.
