Administrative Contacts (On-Demand hosted systems only)

Allows you to enter one or more email addresses to be notified in case of system downtime or other critical issues. These addresses are used by the Agility online operations group to broadcast important updates to on-demand customers on an as-needed basis. This list is not used for marketing purposes. Typically, this list includes system administrators and other key users.

For readability, separate email addresses by new lines. Below are examples of valid email formats:
