    Hi there!

    Thank you for posting to the SurveyGizmo Community!

    Thank you, Jim, for your above input – I couldn’t have put this better myself.

    There is not a programmatic limit that I have previously encountered and just now pasted over 500 words of Lorem ipsum into a question title without issue. I would echo Jim’s statement that the only limit is practical from a respondent’s point of view.

    Are there any specific concerns or problems that you are encountering with regard to the number of characters in a question? If there is something specific to your survey that you would like assistance with, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Support team:

    I hope this helps!

      I have flagged your posting for the attention of SurveyGizmo support.  They are in a better position to provide you with an authoritative answer than your fellow users.

      I can tell you from personal experience that you can include a lot of text in the question field.  In some surveys we have included several paragraphs of text in addition to the question.  In other cases we have included a graphic file.  I would say that the only limit is what is practical/usable from the respondent’s point of view.  You should also consider how an unusual amount of text will appear on tablets and smart phones.
