Using Cloudflare to proxy ONLY my website A records

If I want to use Cloudflare to protect ONLY my website, and not the other services in my DNS zone file (i.e. Microsoft 365 services, etc.), should I only have Cloudflare import the A records for my based domain and www records (i.e.domain.com and www.domain.com)?

Also, do I have to have Cloudflare become my DNS zonefile nameservers, or can I just change the A records for domain.com and www.domain.com, to point to Cloudflare to proxy my site?

Cloudflare needs to be your only name servers. All your DNS records should be here, and :orange: Proxy just your site. Everything else can be :grey: DNS Only.
