Limit the Number of Characters in your Text Questions

When you are collecting open text answers from participants in an online survey, one problem you may run into is that there is no limit to the amount of text the participant can submit. This can become frustrating when you only really require a short answer from the participant and you end up getting a small essay.

Today we are happy to announce that you now can limit open text answers to a maximum number of characters.
