Hi @sarvarshaikh,

Can you detail the reasoning behind your recommendation to remove the period from the end of the sentence? Looking through the Add New and Edit User screens, it looks like the period is more consistently included than not.

Having looked at that, I lean towards leaving the . on that screen and adding it where it's missing on Edit User.

I'm going to tag this for Design/UI feedback in case there have been changes elsewhere in Core towards either option.

  • Keywords needs-testing added; 2nd-opinion reporter-feedback removed

I've opened a PR that adds periods to the fields on the user edit screen, so everything is consistent.

From my point of view, I think dot (.) should be removed from the checkbox label. Checkbox label has no dots on other User sub menus as well as Settings sub menus.

Text which has dot (.) at the end are more likely short description of the field.
