Application Workflow - Add Disclaimer

The Legal Disclaimer action item is used for applicants and agencies to accept terms when completing an application. This action item can be used multiple times within an application workflow.

To add a legal disclaimer:

  1. Click Disclaimer in the Add Action Item drop-down on the Application Workflow page. This opens the Edit Action Item pop-up.
  2. Select a language from the language drop-down, for portals with multiple languages. The language selected defines the language in which the fields will be translated. Before saving the action item, you can provide a translation for as many languages as desired based on the languages available. Selecting a different language preserves each translation that has been entered into the fields, even if you have not yet saved the action item.
  3. Enter a title in the Title field, up to 100 characters. This is a required field.
  4. Enter the disclaimer text in the Disclaimer field. There is no character limit. This field is required and accepts HTML.
  5. Select an Input option, either Yes/No or Agree/Disagree. This determines the answer options that display for applicants when choosing to accept or not accept the terms of the disclaimer.
  6. Select the User is prevented from continuing option to require applicants to agree to the disclaimer before continuing with the application.
  7. If the option is unchecked, applicants can proceed with the application regardless of how they respond to the disclaimer.

  8. Enter the error message that appears for the applicant if they attempt to continue without agreeing to the disclaimer. This is a required field and it accepts up to 250 characters.
  9. Click Save. Or, if you would like to provide translations for additional languages, you can select another language from the language drop-down. This clears the fields and allows you to enter a new translation.
