How to make a text field??

Hi!
I’d like to know if there’s any template that allows the user to submit a text.

As i want feedback with the players of the game i’d like to know if it’s possible to create like a form or a text field in order to recieve any message from the users.

Any help will be apreciated!
Best,

    If it's long form text, you would want to use the text input behavior, which pulls up a text input sheet. Otherwise, you will need to write all the rules for handling each character yourself or build a custom virtual keyboard.

    You'll need more than that, though, if you want to receive text from an app. You'll need to connect it to either Google Sheets or your own server. I've struggled to do both and the support for these approaches comes and goes.
