How can I set a 'maximum characters' to be used on a form? (e.g maximum of 800 characters allowed for entry)

    I think you need this for a textarea. Unfortunately, we do not have anything to limit the number of characters on a textarea question. You can get the full form source code and use a script like this:

    http://javascript.internet.com/forms/limit-textarea.html

     

    Here is how you can get full form source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:
    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Share Form"
    3. Click on "Advanced Options"
    4. Click on "Full Source Code".

    We have just released this feature. You can now limit textarea questions by words or characters.
