The "min" and "max" attributes are not supported for Custom Fields.


  • The Minimum Value and Maximum Value fields in the Custom Elements dialog of Manage Templates (corresponding to "min" and "max" attributes in the <fm-element>) have been deprecated.
  • These attributes will have no effect on the Custom Field's behviour.
  • There are currently plans to remove the Minimum Value and Maximum Value fields from the Manage Templates UI to prevent confusion.

Grant Required Field Permissions for the Custom Field

  • To validate Minimum Value or Maximum Value attributes for Custom Fields, the Custom Field must be defined as a Required Field.
  • In Manage Templates > Custom Section, "select Required Field Permission(s) defined. Click to modify."
  • The Minimum Value and Maximum Value can be defined here, and this will be validated in the PM form when sending a form to the next step.
