    I've signed up and your integration is asking for it.

    I also signed up for dropbox and when I tried to integrate, the dialogue box disappears.

    The list that is referring to, is any mailing list you might have created into Mailchimp. Check this external guide for further details

    From there, you can set it up, in order to send the information directly to a Opt-in mail

     

    Or, you can allow the user to decide if she wants to be added to the Opt-in list by using a Send If Choice is checked , so this wil lwork  if a checkbox into the form is ticked

    On regards to Newsletters building, you would need to consult with Mailchimp support. Once you have the newsletter and list setup into Mailchimp, you can go ahead and make a contact form in Jotform and integrate it with Mailchimp as I explained to you above

    I have managed to integrate it thanks to your advice, but wondered that now the checkbox is on the for and is only for the 'yes' option that there would be a way of adding a 'no' too, but in the same box so I can make that question a required one... Should I still contact MailChimp???

    Rather than making a yes/no verification box, you need to add a hover text to the checkbox, explaining that if they leave the box unchecked , they will not be added to the opt-in mail list, therefore there is no need to make a required dropdown menu

    Genius!!! Thank you... 

    I guess I should steer away from giving people too much to click/do...
