This field can contain a maximum of 140 characters.

This field can contain a maximum of 2,083 characters.

Up to six objects (channels, specific channel content, pages, or spaces) can be added to the Subscriptions integration widget.

For example, if a page has four blogs under it, you can enter the relative URL of the page, and users who then subscribe to that entry will be subscribed to the four nested blog channels and the page itself.
