Form Enhancements

With this release, two new Forms enhancements are available:

  • Character limit increase for Approver Comments
  • User ID field now available for use with Form Configuration

Character Limit Increase for Approver Comments

Prior to this enhancement, the Approval Comments field had a character limit of 250 characters, which did not allow for all of the details needed for approval or rejection.

With this release, the Approval Comments field allows for up to 1500 characters, including spaces. This applies to the Approval Progress Overview page and the approval comments at the top of a Form page.

User ID field Available for Form Configuration

The User ID field is often used as a unique identifier for target users or custom-specific API calls that require this information.

With this enhancement, the User ID standard field is available for configuration in forms as a read-only field that cannot be edited or overwritten.

This field is available and reportable in Reporting 2.0.



This functionality is automatically enabled for all organizations using the Cornerstone HR module.
