Participant Consent & Letter Templates

Downloadable Templates for Key Survey:

There are two ways to include your Participant Consent Form or a Cover Letter into your survey:

  1. Convert your form to PDF and EMBED it in a Key Survey Section Header; OR
  2. Insert a coded template into a Key Survey Section Header.

Both methods are accessible but Embed PDF is recommended as it is easier and less time-consuming.
