Project Maximums

OVERVIEW

The following project maximums are designed to improve product performance across the Enterprise Work Cloud, and enhance your experience with Workfront. The server load for timeline calculations, which is based on all tasks and issues associated with a project and are run whenever dates change, is reduced.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TASKS

The maximum number of tasks per project is 5,000. A warning message will be displayed when the number of tasks approaches this maximum. When the maximum is reached, an error message displays and additional tasks cannot be added to this project. To avoid reaching this maximum, move tasks that are closed to another project designated for closed tasks. Reports on these projects may need to be adjusted.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ISSUES

The maximum number of issues per project is 10,000. A warning message will be displayed when the number of issues approaches this maximum. When the maximum is reached, an error message displayed and additional issues cannot be added to this project. To avoid reaching this maximum, move issues that are closed to another project designated for closed issues. Reports on these projects may need to be adjusted.

MAXIMUM DURATION

The maximum duration of a project is 15 years. A warning message will be displayed when the project duration approaches the maximum. When the maximum is reached, a warning message displays and the automatic timeline calculations cease. The automatic timeline calculations will resume as soon as a project's duration is reduced below 15 years by adjusting the tasks or issues in this project.

TIMELINE CALCULATIONS

Timeline calculations will cease for projects that haven't been updated in 6 months and will not resume until an update is made.

For projects that haven't been updated in 3 months, timeline calculations will be done weekly instead of nightly.

CONSIDERATIONS

You can avoid reaching the maximums by deleting closed tasks and issues or moving them to another project designated for closed tasks and/or issues.  Likewise, you can stay away from the 15-year duration maximum by adjusting task or issue dates.

Adjusting Reports
After moving closed tasks and/or issues to another designated project,  adjust the filter of the report(s) to include this project.
