Why do text fields have character counts?

  • Updated


At Quickify AI, we want to help you create amazing learning experiences that are fast and easy.

The problem with many online training courses is over writing.

When there's too much text on the screen, we've learned that some users skip blocks of text and don't read them. 

Why do you have a character count?

Our character counts are set based on years of best practice for the right amount of text, so a user doesn't feel overwhelmed.

They are also set, so text isn't overwritten and breaks the visual design of our activities, providing the user with a better experience overall. 

If you go over the character count, anything over the character count limit will be cut off when you publish.

Where can I see my character count?

The character count is the number in the bottom right corner of a text box in the editor.
