Text Validation - Character Limit

Character limit and numeric range validation

How can I enforce a limit on the number of characters that can be entered in an open ended text type question?

  • Click on Login » Surveys (Select Survey) » Edit
  • Click on Settings.
  • Enable the Required box to require a response. This will bring up the Character Limit (optional): field. 

    Note: character limits cannot be applied without also making the question required.

  • Enter the desired character limit. If this number is left as “0,” no character limit will be applied. Note: Blank spaces and special characters will be counted towards the total character limit.
