Hi, I am in the 'settings' tab of a survey editing using xls through Survey123 Connect.

I am using inbox method and surveys that are sent to my users have a title, and that title is configured under "instance_name" in that 'settings' tab.

The name of my features become way too long, and I was wondering is there any code that would only display the first 10 characters of my feature? Such like in Excel if I use the code =LEFT(X, 10) it'll only give me the 10 first characters.

This is what I am currently using to display the surveys in the List view to my users: 

${Site_Name} + ': ' + ${Map_Label}

Would be great if I could only grab the first 10 characters from my ${Site_Name}

Hi @BenWan,

Use the substring function: substr(${Site_Name},0,10). If it doesn't work in the instance_name create a new question in the main form and feed it to the instance_name.

Hope this helps,
