Description: A description can be added to the field so that users have better information when filling it.
Select the lists available in the interface: In this option of the field, you must select the lists that you want to be shown in the interface of the form for the user to subscribe.
The option for multiple selections: By checking this option a user can subscribe to several lists at the same time. It should be noted that if the Checkbox option is checked, the Multiple options cannot be checked.

Hidden: By checking this option the field must be hidden in the frontend.
