Establishing character and number limits
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.
Can I limit the number range for numeric text questions?
Yes. Follow the same steps as listed above for a numeric text question. When you enable the Required box, in addition to the Character Limit field, a Numeric Data Range (optional) field will appear. If you leave the range as “0” to “0”, the range will be limitless. You can also enable the Whole Numbers option.
