Longer Character Counts for Comments/Questions

Hey Exaptive Community - Anyone have any tips or idea if character counts can be increased from the 200 limit to add comments to questions, etc.?

Thank you so much for this information! This makes total sense and is an easy fix.




Yes, you can increase the character count by changing he field from text to "longtext". You can do this by:

1. Selecting the element type in the planner and on the field you wish to change, click the ellipses and then "Change data type"

2. This will open a modal that will to select which type to change to. "longtext" has no character count limit and allows for a simple text area or a rich text editor.

3. Click confirm and the change will be made across the cognitive city. If there are a large number of elements in the element type, it may take a while to finish. In some cases it may even time out and looks as though it failed. If there are more than a hundred elements being modified by this operation and you get an error, try waiting 5 minutes and refreshing the page.
