🔢 List of technical and data limitations in Asana

Terrific post, @Richard_Sather, and thanks too, @Phil_Seeman.

See also for some related info:

For example, #11 here mentions 500 projects in a portfolio, but B1.1 in the other post notes the 250 project limit in Workload.

Richard, maybe this list as it grows could be made more scannable with titles like:

Limit of 500 Projects added to a single Portfolio

Thanks so much for doing this–great reference post; bookmarked!

Thanks @Phil_Seeman & @lpb for your encouraging feedback!
I’ve edited the post so it reads clearer under headings of subjects and renumbered to allow for growth :wink:
Sorry, I completely missed @Bastien_Siebman 's fantastic post on the BUTs :sweat_smile: I will keep an eye on it to add relevant items to this post! :+1:

Apparently the CSV import has a limit of 2000 rows you can import, maybe you can add it to the list?

Amazing post by the way, I am jealous I did not have the idea before :slight_smile:

Thanks @Bastien_Siebman !
Done, added to the list :wink:

Hi everyone!
I just added three more additions to the list: 3.3, 4.1 & 9.1
Cheers :wink:

Regarding 1.1:

I tried this again today and I can happily report that I can re-sort as I please!! (now over 100 options in a single select dropdown in over 5k tasks in over 100 projects)

Can anyone else do the same now, so we can cross this off the list? :slight_smile:

@Richard_Sather,

In 3.3, I think you can link instead to this:

@Bastien_Siebman , do you think these two could be added to your BUTs :peach: ?
i.e. you can export 140k rows from a project BUT only 2k rows from search results…

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.
