Over the years, one of the requests has been to increase the size of the Production Notes field. While working on the Checklist/Timeline project we have increased this from 50 characters to 2000 by implementing some creative approach. The default remains unchanged at 50 characters which means no reports, labels, etc., would be affected. However, if you would like to take advantage of the increased field size, you can do this by adjusting the appSettings.
However, keep in mind, this might require some report adjustments.
