If this is confirmed, maybe add the 250 limit for read-only view mentioned here? How to Publicly Share a Calendar Over Task Limit

Thanks @Bastien_Siebman for raising this. As a result, I’ve added an entire section 10 :smiley:
Also added 2.2 & 2.3

Happy NY everyone :partying_face:

@Julien_RENAUD @Arthur_BEGOU make sure to look at section 10, there are limitations we were not aware of I believe.

@Richard_Sather I have a new one for you (and no answer on what the limit is)

:scream: how many tasks have you got @Bastien_Siebman ?? No filters I assume, all tasks visible?
I wonder if it’s a temporary bug… perhaps multi-sorting in My Tasks may soon come to ‘sort’ this out? :person_shrugging:

I had over 1000 incomplete tasks. I decreased it and it is working again, but would have loved to know the limit.

Hey @Bastien_Siebman , I just ran a test and the answer is 1,000 tasks but interesting to discover that some sorting works ok, see 8.2 added above.

Also added 8.3 & 8.4 as well as 4.8, inspired following your discussion on subtasks with @lpb

How about converting custom fields, noting that we can’t change multi-select back to single select.

Hi @lilrkt , good point, I’ve added it to 1.6, thanks!

Btw all, also added 3.4 last week.

How come 1.6 is a data limitations? :thinking: seems off to me

I thought about it too… but then I thought it’s more like a technical limitation, like some sorting issues and collapsable sections, no? or maybe it’s a BUT :peach: ? :person_shrugging:

Could be a BUT :peach: indeed, but I am sure you want your amazing post to become a list of missing features :sweat_smile:

I’m with @Bastien_Siebman - I don’t think it fits here as a “limitation” in the context of what your goal is in this particular listing.

Thanks @Phil_Seeman , @Bastien_Siebman for your inputs. The clear goal of this topic is indeed to focus on the ‘numbers’ in regards to the limitations of the platform.

So reconsidering, I have removed 1.6 as well as a few others which, in hindsight, could be considered missing features rather than limitations. So moving onwards, will be open to suggestions that include ‘numbers’ - thus new emoji added in the title to remind us :wink:

@lilrkt , I hope you found what you were looking for here

Hello, I need to add about 400 options to my single select custom field. Will I be able to do this? I mean do I get it right that the limit for this now is 500?

Yes!

@Grigory_Krasovsky if you are ok starting from scratch, maybe my tool “Custom Field Creator” can help with this task!
