Question: Text block

Rafaela Basso Updated by Rafaela Basso

For Landbot (Web)

Note: Text block has the limitation of 255 characters. If this limit is exceeded, the text will be cut off when you export the data.

If you need a long text input, we recommend using more than one Text block, to split the answers into them.

โ€‹โ€‹The thing is that the Question: Text block was not though out to receive texts that are too long, so my recommendation would be to either split the question into different Question: Text blocks (in order to fraction the answer), or to just inform the user that there is this limitation ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Text question: Probably the most flexible question type available, it allows users to type in anything. It can be short or long, but let's start by showing to you what the block looks like:

  1. First, drag and drop the green dot and type in "Text" to create this type of question.
  2. You'll see a menu where you can add text, format it, and customise the variable name where the answer will be saved (by default @text):

  1. You can also select whether you want the text area to be Short or Long by clicking on the option with the same name.
    1. The Short text area looks like this:

    2. The long text area looks like this:

      The size of the text area suggest how much information you demand from your visitors, so use it wisely to avoid monosyllable-based convos!
