Instructions

To configure your character limit, navigate to the display tab for the form field.



To configure the character limit, enter the amount in the Max Length box. If 0 is entered, there will be no limit and the user will be able to enter as much or as little as they want. 0 is the default and if no configurations are made, there will be no limit.



Once you enter the max length, save your work. You can test the configurations by navigating back to the forms Layout tab and click the drop-down next the to save button to view your form online



By typing in your text box, you will be able to test and determine if the Max amount needs to be updated.
