This article explains how the Text Box Control with a 64 character limit works and how to add it to the Order Form and/or the Online Scheduler.

The Text Box Control is normally used when you need to add information that is not in the Order Form and/or the Online Scheduler and want to have the inspectors, the office manager, and/or the client enter a specific piece of information about the order, such as extra property details, any location reference, or whatever else you need to know.

These are the Text Box settings that you have to set up before adding it to the Order Form Sections:

1.- It is a preview of how this Control will look like in the Order Form

2.- The Control Type Dropdown

3.- How would you like to name the Control in your ISN

4.- Short description of this new Text Box Control

5.- How would you want to name it in the Order Form

6.- How would you want to name it in the Online Scheduler

7.- Select the length of the characters for this Text Box, the limit is 64

Once you have finished setting up the Control, click on the Add Control button to save them.
