Limit the number of characters in a text field
When you use text option limit the maximum characters in the field.

Without this ability it makes using Power Automate really difficult, as it can fail your response copy over to Sharepoint lists, with no ability to catch and handle this.
Google Forms makes this so easy. We definitely need the ability to limit character counts in both short and long answer responses. Please!
I suspect a lot of companies use Forms as an simple data input method and use Sharepoint to then track the data post form submission. As the text questions on Forms are not character controlled, the Flow to write the data into a SP list will simply fail. This needs to be fixed.

Allow both to be set or independently.
I would like the ability to set a custom character limit on individual text answers. My teams are turning to Survey Monkey because of this feature
Essential! I had to use a different form program, since Forms does not have this capability.
