How to Set Character Limits on Fields

Follow

Often users are required to set limits to fields of text. Character limits can come from brand and style requirements to maintain brand compliance. Or to support rendering content on mobile devices with smaller screens.

By setting character limits the user is automatically blocked from entering characters when the text reaches the maximum character allowed. This removes human error and saves a lot of time and resources reviewing and fixing content.

Agility provides a quick and easy way to set character limits on Fields for both Content and Module definitions.

  1. Navigate to agility Settings

    Please note the maximum length applies for characters not words
