    Unfortunately, it is not possible to set a minimum number of characters in a text field, but it is possible to set Maximum number of characters. 

    It is possible to set Minimal and Maximal number of words and letters for Text area field. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/53026779167969? 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
