Hello Thomas,

There is a limit of 80 projects and 150 tasks within a project on Todoist (which allows you to have a total of 12 000 active tasks).

Please tell me, how many tasks do you have in the project you want to add more tasks to? Do you see any error messages when you try to add a task?


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

What's the reason for this limit? Does this also concern Premium users?

Thanks and best regards,
Andreas

Hello Andreas,

Yes, this is a limitation for both free and Premium accounts. The reason for this limit is that we can't guarantee flawless performance for accounts with so many active tasks (more than 12 000), it also creates many issues with mobile access, caching etc.

We've chosen this limits based on our statistical data according to which there's a very minor amount of accounts that may be close to such amount of tasks.

Please tell me - how many tasks do you have per project and how many projects do you have? We would appreciate if you could clarify how your using our app for your task management so we can better understand it or advise you how to work around these limitations with a different approach (using sub-projects, or labels, different distribution of tasks across projects).


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

Thank you for your answer. Now I understand why there's such a limit.

I'm very far away from this limitation so I don't have any further concerns.

Best regards,
Andreas
