When creating custom fields, Admin users are able to specify the length of a field. However, users are able to provide values that exceed this length.

If the length of a field needs to be enforced, an Admin or a Data Manager needs to create a Validation Rule to monitor field value lengths. For example, a Name field can be limited to 100 characters as shown below:
