    When editing Users under Setup, it will not allow me to update a user's information without putting 9 digits in the Phone field. Why is this a required field now? Many of our users only use Mobile Phones for their work number, however even when Mobile Phone field is filled in, the Phone field still says it is required to update.Can you please remove the required restriction on the Phone field? Or remove the Mobile Phone field, so it is less confusing. "

    What problem will this feature solve?:
