New Feature: Strict/Loose Text Limits

text limit screenshotFor a while now, the ProposalSpace form builder has allowed call admins to place limits on text fields. For example, you could set a 200-word limit for a bio field or a 75-character limit for a title field. Any limit, however, was purely informational, which meant an author could exceed it and still submit the proposal. (The system would highlight the answer for call admins and reviewers, though, so they could easily tell if the author went over the limit.)

Now, if you set a limit on a text field, you can tell the system what to do if the answer exceeds the limit:

  • Allow the proposal to be submitted and highlight the answer for call admins and reviewers.
  • Consider the proposal incomplete and do not allow it to be submitted.

Thanks to the call admins who suggested this improvement… Keep the great ideas coming!
