Issue/Introduction

Is there a limit to the number of tasks that can be on a project in Clarity?

Environment

Release : All Supported Releases

Component : Clarity Project Management

Resolution

There is no limit in the number of tasks you can have on an investment in Clarity. 

However,  if you are exporting projects to Open Workbench (OWB) or Microsoft Project (MSP), as the number of tasks increase, it could cause performance to slow down, dependent on other factors such as:

  • the number of assignments per tasks
  • the duration of the tasks
  • the number of baselines exported to the scheduler

For more details on this for MSP, see also: MSP Integration and the Number of Tasks and MSP Integration performance best practices 

So if you do see slower performance when exporting to a scheduler, it would be recommended to break the project out into separate sub projects under a master project where possible or use other best practices such as exporting only the current baseline. 

  • The change to only export the current baseline is made in Clarity under Administration->Project Management->Settings.
  • IMPORTANT: Make sure no projects are currently checked out with baselines when this change is made or you will lose baseline data.
