You would use the Custom Field of Group of Checkboxes if you need to collect more than one piece of optional information from a Contact.

For instance, if your Organisation wants to know if people will volunteer for certain tasks or committees when the Contact is a Member.

In this case, you could use a Group of Checkboxes (and create Smart Groups from the results).

You could then include the Custom Field in the Membership Field Options.
