    You can easily crate a form with our form builder, all you need to is:

    1) Logging with your Jotform account at

    2) Click on Create Form, then click on Create to start with a blank form

    3) You will see our form builder, you will see the Form Fields on your left in order to create your desire form:

    4) On regards of the Drop Down list of newsletter the user would like to be subscribed, we have an integration with MailChimp, it's a great tool to sent  beautiful newsletters or announcements to your web site users and customers.

    Here is the guide on how to integrate with MailChimp:

    Then only thing is that there is no option to let the user decide to which list or group they want to subscribe, selection of the groups is done when you setup integration with MailChimp.

    Let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you. Your point 4. is not in fact what I meant.

    so, I want to create a form that can be completed for me, by other colleagues. 

    so when building the form I need to include a list of names or email addresses. (The submitter name in other words) I'd like users of my form to pick their name from the dropdown list. How is that done?

    I think your next question deserve a separate thread on its own as it was about a different topic than the topic of this thread.

    I created a separate post for it here

    We will attend to it shortly.
