How to Remove Section Opt-out

On the top of the Profile, you'll notice the Remove Section Opt-out button. If a Profile has migrated into APSIS One from APSIS Pro with an opt-out all type of consent, they will gain a Section opt-out. If this was a mistake, you can adjust their type of consent in the channel by clicking this button.

Moreover, when subscribers report your email as spam, they gain the Email - Abuse Event in their Response Data and get a Section opt-out corresponding with the Section related to the email they received.

What is a Section Opt-out?

A Section opt-out is a unique type of consent, different than opting out from all Topics, as shown in this table.

It prevents the Profile from receiving emails from all Topics in all Consent lists that exist within the Section. Read more about the types and levels of consent here...

Important Note: For now, this option will be available for Profiles with a Section opt-out, Profiles without any Topic consent, or that have opted out from all Topics.

If a Profile has a Section opt-out and you use this feature, their opt-out will be removed and their consent will be restored to how it was previously. If a Profile does not have a Section opt-out, but multiple Topic opt-outs, you will see an error message. We're working on improving this feature, so stay tuned.
