Your app does not collect data from your guests unless the data capture feature is enabled. 

Enabling Data Capture

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

Standard fields can also be enabled in-app, while Pro tier (or custom) fields must be enabled from your account online.

Standard Fields

The Standard plan supports collecting email address, first name, last name, phone number, zip code and date of birth.

Pro Fields

The Pro plan supports more custom data capture fields, including the following:

  • Text fields allow guests to type in an answer to a question. 

  • Checkboxes allow guests to check a box (or not) in response to a question. 

  • Required checkboxes must be checked by the guest in order for them to submit their data for your use. If a guest chooses not to check this box, you will not capture their information.  

  • Required legal terms allows you to add in a more extensive Terms of Service or Privacy policy. When guests submit their information, they will see that they are agreeing to your TOS/PP and can read it if they would like. 

Optional vs. Required Data Collection


Allow guests to opt out of data capture by enabling a couple send options in addition to the data capture fields you want to collect. This can be accomplished in your Send Options panel.

When enabled, these send options will appear less prominently below the button that brings participants to your data capture form.


Data capture can be set to required by disabling all send options. They'll 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.

Data Capture Integrations

Our MailChimp integration will automatically send the information you collect directly to your MailChimp account. 

The integration can be configured at the bottom of the data capture panel on your preset page.
