Double Opt In?
This checkbox is located under the Contact Lists field. If you select this option, any new contacts that sign up to your form will be sent an email that verifies they want to be on your contact list. This will happen as soon as you connect to the internet.
The three form fields will be what your contacts see when they sign up. Your “Company Name” is the name of your company. The “Headline” appears below the Company Name and your “Descriptive Text” explains what contacts are signing up for. You can also include information for how often they will be emailed.
Set the option to “On” to lock your signup screen. A password ensures that users cannot close out of the signup form or see your desktop content.
