In the Survey App can the TEXT/AREA be larger than 255 characters?  Is there a text field that can be larger than 255 characters?

    All the answers for questions are stored in one large text field in the DB as JSON, so the only limit is something like 40000 characters for the entire survey plus the JSON overhead. Are you finding your text field limited to 255 characters or are you just asking out of curiousity?

    Yes, the user was trying to type longer than 255 characters but the field is limited to 255.  Is there another field that a user can type more than 255 characters?
