🔢 List of technical and data limitations in Asana

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

Thank you! I will have a look :slight_smile:

Added 4.9 as reported here and here. Thanks @lpb!

Hey @Richard_Sather,

Just reading through this post again, and one note regarding 4.2: it’s actually not as simple as stated here.

I’m told that the internal technical limit is “a maximum of 45 total dependents plus dependencies on one task”. However, in addition to this limit, there are some other limits in a few various parts of the Asana UI - these are not currently consistent with each other or with the “45 total” limit, unfortunately, and I don’t have a list of what all of those UI limits on dependents and dependencies are.

I’m told there is a backlog item for Asana developers to clean this up and make the dependents/dependencies limits consistent across the product, but I have no idea if or when that might happen.

Thanks for the update @Phil_Seeman ! I’ve rephrased 4.2 and linked to your post above… until this inconsistency gets ironed out. :wink:

Hi @Richard_Sather

A new one, maybe for your list :wink:

Goals
Maximum of 10 projects connected to a goal (or subgoal)

Remark: this concerns only the “contributing projects” connected to a goal with Automated progress, not the projects added as reference.

This has now been increased from 30 to 100 :slight_smile:

Hi @Richard_Sather

A very fresh one about Universal Workload :slight_smile:

Something I wasn’t able to find in the above list and I stumbled across today is a limit of 1000 comments per task @Richard_Sather

max comments per task

@Andrea_Mayer , @Arthur_BEGOU , you two are on :fire: Keep them coming :clap:

I’m not sure what is more impressive; that Andrea reached 1000 comments in a task or that @Bastien_Siebman has over 300 tasks this month! :sweat_smile:

PS: 4.12 & 5.4 added

@Arthur_BEGOU , is it possible for you to easily recreate this limit within a Portfolio to test whether this also applies to Workload within a Portfolio (not just Universal Reporting)? Cheers :wink:

Hi @Richard_Sather

I’ve tested it, and indeed, the same limit applies with “Workload within a Portfolio”.

Amazing list - I wish I saw this a few months ago when we started building our Asana instance. Thanks @Richard_Sather !!

Thanks @Bill_Manley , glad you have found it useful! :smiley:

As you can see, this post is turning into a community-built one… it wouldn’t be soooo long without the help of my friends @pforumleader @ambforumleader

And there’s more limitations coming soon… :wink:
