How do I set up the new Cookie Consent?


To use the Cookie Consent feature in a Content Track you must first:

  1. Enable Cookie Consent in your Organization Settings
  2. Customize the look and messaging of your Cookie Consent with Appearances and Languages (Optional)
  3. Toggle On Cookie Consent within each Content Track
Make sure you read the Cookie Consent Checklist to ensure you are implementing the new Cookie Consent feature everywhere necessary.

Enabling Cookie Consent does not affect the availability of the Cookie Message function. Turning on Cookie Consent in your Organization Settings means that you will now have the option to add Cookie Message or Cookie Consent to your Content Tracks.
  1. Select Organization Settings from the drop-down menu under your username.
    You must be an admin user to access Organization Settings.

    • If you only want Cookie Consent to appear for visitors with IP addresses from specific countries, select Enable Cookie Consent for web visitors with an originating IP from selected countries, and then select the countries.

  4. If you want all newly created content tracks to automatically have Cookie Consent turned on, check the box for Apply Cookie Consent to all new tracks.
    This will only affect content tracks created after this point; it will not turn on cookie consent in existing content tracks.
