# field.textarea

Box for entering multi-line text. Use in tasks that require an extended response. For single-line responses, use the field.text component.

The size of the box does not automatically adjust to the length of the text. Tolokers can change the height by dragging the lower-right corner. To change the default size of the box, use the rows property.

Note that formatting is not available in the text box.
