To pass this challenge, add a new section 'Phone Numbers' to the default 'Contact Layout'. Add the Phone, Mobile, Home Phone, Other Phone, and Fax fields to this new section.
-->The 'Contact layout' Page Layout should have a new section named 'Phone Numbers'.
-->The 'Phone Numbers' section should include the 'Phone', 'Mobile', 'Home Phone', 'Other Phone', and 'Fax' fields.

Please follow below step:-

Okay, I did as you recommended, and I'm still getting the same error message. Here is my updated Contact Page Layout with the phone numbers section:

Also, I didn't understand the logic behind your recommended fix. The error message is telling me that it can't find the Event object "Showing Mobile Layout". Why would changing the Contact Page layout change that?

Please note that this problem is still outstanding. I'm still getting the same error message as above. As a result, I have not been able to complete the Challenge.

Any additional thoughts on the resolution?

I was having a hard time as well and this is what I was missing. Hopefully it helps you.

Make sure that you have selected the "Compact Layout" Section (by clicking it) (1). Then select the Compact Layout (2), then hit save(3).

Let us know if that helps you.
