Character limit on opportunity name

Hi, We have a character limit on hte “Opportunity name” which is not long enough for what we need.

Is there a simple way to increase that character limit?

In Opportunity custom Vardef, create file as (/custom/Extension/modules/Opportunities/Ext/Vardefs/sugarfield_name.php)
and put following in that.

$dictionary["Opportunity"]["fields"]["name"]["len"] = '255';

Run R/R and test.

Hi @cherub-chum Thank you for your reply. Sorry I am not a developer, nor familiar with this process. Would you mind detailing in more thorough instructions as I’m sure my colleague will be able to do this but we would need a step by step as such if you wouldn’t mind providing this? Thanks for your support.

It can be done from Studio as well.

cherub-chum’s instructions are thorough and complete. just create that specific file with that specific content, then Repair and Rebuild.

Thank you for all your replies.

@BrozTechnologies we were able to achieve this via STUDIO > EDIT FIELD - Thank you!
