We have a custom object and out of the box Name field is used for Title. It is limited to 80 characters. Is there way to increase the size?
Thank you for all your replies. I am going with a new attribute.
If you cannot do it in the GUI it is not supported and doing that in the database might make it not upgradeable.
Using search on communities:
Increase the length of the attribute
Out-of-the-Box (Default) attribute's properties are not editable, you can play around with custom attribute properties.
The default attributes which you cannot edit do not have a check box
while the custom attributes have and for a custom attribute the properties look like this.
As you do not have the check box you cannot delete the field either and crate a new with the same name, but bigger size.
I agree to all the answers posted above. There is a Description field as you should be aware, where more characters can be entered. Alternatively, you can rename the out-of-the-box Name field to something sensible within the Project Object Views page and create a new custom Name field with more characters. Hope this helps!
