Maximum Length is a setting on custom fields that support text entry, such as Text – Multiple Lines, Text – Single Line and Special - Rich Text.

  • Maximum Length: Sets the maximum length of the text entry.
  • Show Counter: Determines whether a counter will be shown to the user.
  • Count Words: Sets the counter to count words (instead of characters, the default).
  • Exceeded Maximum Message: Message the user will see when they reach the maximum length

Users can enter content that exceeds the limit initially and then edit appropriately before saving/submitting the record. The content is not truncated if pasted into the field from another source, but the character/word limit will still be enforced on save/submission.
