The Form Documentation is really good - it might be worth having a look at it? There is also a helpful 6-min video that tells you exactly how to make a form: https://www.adalo.com/videos

Hello Adalo.ers,

is there any way we can show on screen the character count of an input field so the user can know how many characters he entered/have left ?

cheers!
