Increase Name field length from 80 to 255

Customization & App Building

When you create a custom object and use the text type for the name field, you are limited to 80 characters in length.

However on the CRM Account object, the name is allowed to be 255 characters.

Custom objects should be allowed to have names with a length of 255 characters.
