Consent report

Available from 15.3.0

Analytics

Note: Stats for this report are available only if you use Consent Manager.

The consent report shows how many people agreed or not to data collection and usage on your site. It also tells you which consent types visitors accept and which buttons on the form they click on.

You can use this report to learn about consent trends. As a side note, we observed on our sites that only 25 to 75 percent of people give full consent. These stats can be true on your site as well. To see all of your traffic, you can collect non-sensitive data from visitors who don’t consent.

In the consent report, you’ll see three subreports:

  • Decisions about consent
  • Consents by type
  • Consent form interactions

To see the report, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Analytics.
  2. Navigate to Reports.
  3. On the left, click Consent.
  4. View the report.
