⚠️ Data is only collected when the feature is enabled before use and is only available on the Pro and Select plans ⚠️

Simple Booth cannot share participant information after your event is over if the feature was accidentally disabled.

Enabling Data Capture

Data capture can be enabled for the HALO app from your preset settings.

All Pro tier fields can also be enabled in-app and from your online dashboard. The custom Select tier fields must be enabled from your account online.

Pro Tier Fields

Six standard fields are available and include:

  • Email address

  • First name

  • Last name

  • Phone number

  • Postal code

  • Date of birth

Select Tier Fields

The select tier plan also supports adding up to 10 custom fields, described below.

  • Text Fields: Allow participants to type in an answer to a question. 

  • Checkboxes: Allow participants to check a box (or not) in response to a question. 

  • Required Checkboxes: Must be checked by the participant in order for them to submit their data for your use.

    If a participant chooses not to check this box they will be unable to submit the form and you will not collect their data as a result.

Custom Legal Terms

Custom legal terms are available on the Select plan only.

Add your own Terms of Service and/or Privacy Policy to your data capture form.

Optional vs. Required Data Collection


Allow participants to opt out of sharing their information by enabling one or more send options from your "Send Option" panel.

When enabled, participants can skip the data capture form and receive a copy of their picture via one of these other sharing methods.


Data capture can be set to required by disabling all send options from the "Send Options" panel.

Participants will automatically receive a text or email with a link to their photo by filling out your data capture form. 

Accessing Data

The data you collect will be available on your analytics page where you can download a CSV file.

Find the CSV download about halfway down your analytics page, on the left-hand side.



The MailChimp integration will automatically send the information you collect directly to your MailChimp account without the need for any technical knowledge.

Open API

Our API integration feature works seamlessly with data capture to collect first-party data from participants and deliver it to your server, database, or CRM for marketing purposes.

Please note that utilizing this tool typically requires work from a developer or technical team who knows how to write code.
