Long Text Control

The Long Text control allows you to capture multiple lines of text from the user.

The Long Text control consists of a multi-line text box and a label. The label should be used to inform the user of the type of data to enter in to the text box.

Add to the Template

The Long Text control can be added from the controls toolbar in the Template.

Once you have added the control you must set the label text that will be displayed above the text box.

You can change the height of the text box by dragging the handle on the bottom right of the text box.

If you would like the Long Text control to be a required field, you can check the "Is Required?" checkbox.

Use in the Checklist

The Long Text control displays in the Checklist as below.


When a Long Text control is marked as required we will perform validation when the user completes the task. We will not allow the task to be completed until a value has been entered in to the text box.

Validation error messages are shown below the text box.

If you try to complete a task outside of the checklist (e.g. from the Dashboard) and it fails validation we will notify you of the validation failure via a pop-up message.
