Is it possible to add check boxes to the signup form? In turn, not allowing signups to submit info unless the box is checked?

Hi there -- You have the option to add any member field from your account to a sign-up form. You can require it or hide it, but all are available. You can create you checkbox field using the manage contact fields button on the audience page, then choose to *require* it on the form like the last field here (the left column of check boxes is the required option, the right is the hide option):


If you're looking to have contacts add themselves to specific audience/interest groups, you can do that using the add/remove groups option on the sign-up form edit page. When you click that button, you see this:


You can give subscribers the option to add themselves to one or more groups using the Display boxes, and checking the Add box will add them by default to that group. 

I hope this helps!
I did this to display different groups for the audience. They could choose whether they are non profits, government agencies, researchers, or businesses. However the preview page shows this note "Select your interests" above the different groups. This could potentially be confusing because I'm not asking them to select what they are interested, but what they would describe themselves as. And I cannot seem to edit the "select your interest." Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi there -- There's not currently a way to edit the text that displays above your groups on the signup form. I'll add a feature request on your behalf for that functionality!
