About field sizes
If you are uploading or mapping data to fields that already exist in OpenAthens, you will want to make sure your data fits.
Bulk uploads will reject fields that are two large and mapped attributes will be truncated to fit. These are the maximum field sizes.
We've been around for a long time, so some of the fields are smaller than you might expect.
