⚠️ Data is only collected when the feature is enabled before use ⚠️

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.

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. You can also add a custom Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Pro Fields

The Pro plan supports adding up to 10 custom fields, including the following.

Text Fields

Allow participants to type in an answer to a question. 


Allow participants 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 participant chooses not to check this box, you will not capture their information.  

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.


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