    Is there a way to increase the # of allowable letters in the fields?

    Asked by Ivy  on September 02, 2015 at 10:07 AM

    For example, in the name field, it only allows for 7 letters.  What if someone has more that 7 letters in their 1st or last name?


    Thank you.

    You can indeed increase the width of your fields.  The easiest way to do so is in the form designer.  While editing your form, click on the designer tab to open your form in the designer.  Once there, click on the Name field, then change the width:

    We can also help you customize the CSS of specific fields to look the way you would like.  Just let us know the form you are working on and how you would like the field to look and we will be happy to help.
