How to limit the length of a single line text?


#1

Hi there, has anyone found how to limit the length of a single line text? I need my users to enter a few words as a description, but would like to prevent them from entering a roman (say more than 100 chars) in there. Any idea?

There’s no way to set a hard limit on the field in Airtable. Typically in a case like this, I’d use an alert triggered by LEN({Input})>{Limit} — but since you can’t make use of calculated values in a form, this won’t work for you. About the best you can do is to mention the desired length in the form’s field description and hope for the best…
