Monday will accept any number you put there; you can put the number of sandwiches you consume yearly, and it will accept it as a phone number.
Disable/Enable User Notification Not all Users need to be notified when their name is added to a record; that’s why you can toggle notifications for each of your user fields on or off as you see fit.
