Hi Doug, what action are you doing that is triggering a message regarding the 512 character limit? I believe the limit is larger, but there is a constraint on how large the field can be for certain actions (integrations, forms, etc.)
Max Character Limit in Description Field: Possible to Increase?
We are running into an issue where there's a maximum of 512 characters in the "Description" field. We are getting this error: "Maximum characters allowed 512 has been exceeded"
Can that be increased? I saw a post that indicates it is 1600 characters, and there was a feature request (CR-234866) to increase it to 3200 or remove it altogether. What is the status of that?

Hey Josh, we are just trying to paste plain text into that field. I just tried again, and NOW it is telling me the limit is indeed 1600. Perhaps that was just a glitch yesterday?
Ah, could be. That is strange that you would have received a message referencing 512 characters when just pasting in information. Please let us know if you see this again. Thanks!
Whoops...spoke too soon. It's telling me the limit is 512 characters for the Description field on a Customer card, but 1600 on a Project, Milestone, or Task card.
Hmm, can you submit a ticket and we will escalate. Thanks!
