To hopefully reduce confusion what the 'shared' checkbox does.

I saw it one time too many where users were a bit confused as to what
this checkbox is for. Since we have a hard time to find a better label,
maybe we want to put a small hint below it?

The phrasing can probably be improved upon. But I think having something
there that can hopefully explain it enough, transporting that the
sharing itself needs to be configured beforehand by the user, would help.
