    Sadly, JotForm builder does not have the option to have a minimum number of characters on a field, but it is possible to have a max limit - on regular text fields and text areas.

    For text boxes, click the Max Size button

    For text areas, click the Entry Limit button

    What do you mean by "defined number region"? If you're referring to the minimum number of characters, like I said, we do not have that option.

    If it's about something else, please provide more information so we can be able to come up with an accurate answer.

    Unfortunately, this is not currently possible to set the minimum number of characters through JotForm. However, you may find a workaround provided by our colleague Abajan in the following thread.
