Custom Field Character Length

We are looking to send an email to our customer with a personalized link. I would like to use a custom field to upload each customer's personalized link. I just wanted to know if there is a character length to the custom field?


I read in another post that it was 50 characters but after account migration you could get 255? what is the current character length of a customer field?

Re: Custom Field Character Length

Hi @VanessaB03463


That's a great question! When it comes to a custom field, for the field name there is a length limit of 50 characters. However there is a 255 character limit for the contact detail that is going into that custom field, so in this case the personalized link. I apologize for any confusion there may be for a custom field character length.
