I have a question about the "Subscribe" options that are automatically added to broadcasts (see attached images). First up, I love that ConvertKit does this -- it's a great feature.However, the subscribe box only collects email addresses, and I would like to collect First Names as well for newsletter greeting personalizations. Is there a way to add a custom first name field to the sidebar and footer subscription forms on broadcasts? Note that I know how to add custom fields to forms in general, what I want to know is how to access and customize the forms that show up in a broadcast specifically. Thank you!

On the edit page, hunt for a very pale grey plus sign.  :-)  This stumped me at first too.  It looks like a border but you click the plus and can add lots more fields.
