Subscription mode: If you select multiple email lists, you can add the email to different lists using the subscription form. You can add the email addresses to all your selected lists or you can allow your user to select a single list or multiple list.
For example consider you have 2 lists, List 1 and List 2. If you select these 2 lists and the subscription mode is ‘Add to all list’, the subscribed email will enter to these 2 lists.
If the subscription mode is ‘Allow users to select multiple list’, the subscription form will show these 2 lists with check box. The subscriber can select the lists.
For the subscription mode ‘Allow users to select single list’, it will display the lists in a dropdown menu and the subscriber can select a single list from the options.
