It is not possible to exceed the 4000 character limit in text fields. It is an expected behavior for the Comments box as this section is designed to capture brief comments, as opposed to larger documents, feedback, or information.


  • If you would like to have this functionality added to the system, feel free to provide your feedback to the Product Management team via the Customer Community as per the KBA 2090228, where other customers will also have the opportunity to support your functionality request. 
  • If you need to allow more than 4000 characters of text, as a possible workaround you should consider adding some custom field to capture this information.
