How participants will sign this document?

Choose the preferred method how participants will be able to sign the Consent activity.

a) Checkbox "I confirm". With this method, participants will have to select the checkbox "By checking this box I confirm that I have read the Terms and I am willing to participate." to confirm their consent.

b) eParaksts. With this method, participants will be able to confirm their consent choice only with the site eParaksts. eParaksts is a personal electronic signature available to residents of Latvia and is the electronic equivalent of a physical entity's signature by hand.
While the "Checkbox "I confirm"" consent method is available to all Engage participants, in order to confirm their consent with eParaksts participants must also be authenticated on Engage with their eParaksts identity.
Who can complete this activity?
This section allows the administrator to control the functionality of registering participant activity submissions about participants by the administrator themselves.
Learn more about Registering participant activity submissions.
Edit consent
Once published, the Consent activity can be edited by selecting the button Edit in the top-right corner of the activity card.
Edit consent view will next be opened. This view allows to:
- update the sections Title and Short description for all language variants of the activity,
- change the Consent document if no participant submissions have been received in the activity yet,
- alter the permission settings.
Consent documents cannot be changed, once at least one participant has given their consent in the specific Consent activity.

To ensure transparency, immutability of information and protection of participants, consent documents cannot be replaced after at least one participant has given his or her consent in the published Consent activity. For that reason, cases where Consent documentation requires changes after the the activity is already in use call for a completely new Consent activity to be created.
Unpublish consent
It is possible to unpublish the Consent activity by using the slider in the top-right corner of the window in the Edit consent view.
