 +~~NOTOC~~
 +====== Set Browser Cookie ======
 +This action will let you build an [[Expression Builder|expression]],​ and then save the results of that expression into the browser cookie you specify.
 +===== Explanation =====
 +Set browser cookie actions are used to set a piece of data into the browser'​s collection of cookies, which can be later read out of the browser with the [[Expression Function - Read Cookie|Read Cookie]] expression function.
 +
 +Example: Suppose you're building an application to allow people to receive links in their email that bring them to a [[Form Type - Page|page]] in your application that is a survey; and you only want to allow them to take this survey one time.  You can use a set cookie action to write a cookie into their browser that identifies each survey they'​ve taken so that if they try and take it a second time you can read that cookie from their browser and redirect them to a different page.
 +===== Settings =====
