Within SimplePractice, there are two different types of documents you can share with a client through the Client Portal to receive an electronic response. You can find each type below:
A Consent Document, or practice document, is any text document that you want your client to sign and agree to. These are documents that only require an electronic signature from a client to acknowledge that they've read and agreed to the terms.
Setting up your consent documents is an essential part of managing your practice well. Below, you'll find a table that shows you where to easily find consent documents like the Notice of Privacy Practices, Informed Consent for Psychotherapy, and Practice Policies.
|Document...||Where to find it...|

An intake form is a form that allows you to collect responses from the client in different formats like multiple choice, long answer, short answer, electronic signature, etc.
The following table includes where to go when you want to create custom intake form and progress note templates, as well as where you can find the pre-made templates in the Template Library.
