It allows you to assign nonlinearity (linear, tension only or compression only) to the selected members.  The member stiffness will be ignored if a tension only member is subjected to compressive forces or if a compression only member is subjected to tensile forces. The presence of tension only or compression only members makes the model nonlinear and requires iterative solution for each load combination.
