This is the very first step of creating your Cookie banner. In this step, we will be fixing up the essential settings of your banner.

In this article

Working Name

Enter a working name for your cookie banner.

The working name is internal and will not be seen by your visitors. Its purpose is for you to be able to tell it apart from other Cookie banners in your APSIS One account.



Click on the drop-down menu and choose a Section.

Choose the Section that corresponds with the desired Audience of this Cookie Banner.

When choosing which Section you want to use for your activity, please bear in mind that the Sections visible are dependent on your User role and permissions. Read more about User roles here.


Once you choose a Section and click next, you will not be able to change Section for this particular email activity.


Choose the Domain in which you'd like to display your banner.

Make sure to have a cookie bar in all of your domains!


If the domain you chose already has a cookie bar, you will get an error message. If you wish to change the cookie bar of a specific domain, delete or pause the active cookie bar or edit it to fit your needs.


Language Options

You may create more than one cookie banner for your domain by matching the domain's cookie.

Enable this feature if, for example, your domain can be shown in different languages. If you want to enable it, click on a language on the right side drawer.

To enable this activity for all the languages in your domain, simply click only on the domain.

Remember to create a separate cookie banner activity for each language that you support.


Cookie Strategy

Choose your Cookie Strategy. These two options are very different, so pay close attention:


Soft Consent means that the cookie banner will inform visitors about their cookie policy and that, upon navigating the website, they are providing consent. Visitors may leave the page if they do not agree.

By choosing Required Accept, visitors must provide cookie consent by clicking accept. The cookie banner will not disappear unless they accept, and the Tracking Script will store the website interactions in a Profile only after consent is given.
