Max number of characters for a SP List URL

Hi,

Is there a way to change the max number of Characters that a list item will allow? I have a hyperlink column but it only allows 255 characters and I need to add more than that, is there a way to do it?

Hi @kmason,

 

There is a max number of Characters limit for a sharepoint URL as you said, and we could change the max number of Characters for a sharepoint URL currently.

 

However, you could refer to workaround below for your situation.

  1. Add a Multi-Text column to your list

  2. Edit the item that has long URL

  3. Go to the Multi-Text field and you will get Rich-Content Ribbon

  4. Click Insert on the Ribbon > Hyperlink

  5. Add your Title and long URL in the respected field

 

 

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

 

Best regards,

Alice
