Updates limitations

Hi, does anyone know if there is a limit to the amount of updates you can write in the ‘updates’ section? I am being told it is a maximum of 1000 per board but I wondered if anyone has written more than this? Thanks

Hey @Lloyd! I can confirm the limit is set to 1000 updates per board - CORRECTION to my response - the limit is 1000 updates per item.

@BiancaT, is there an item limit as well or just the board limit? Also, how do replies play into this limit?


I just tested to 2000+ and it worked. It does not appear that 1000 is the limit.

This is really helpful to know - perhaps the limit is not yet enforced…? I will share this internally - thank you Jim!


Please let us know what you find out. A limit of 1,000 updates per board seems extremely severe. 1,000 updates per item seems more in line with how the rest of monday operates.

To the best of my knowledge there’s no limitation in updates, I think I’ve seen it go to over 4k in one item in the past.

Thanks for the response, everyone. I am currently using the ‘notes’ to keep my updates on as Monday.com team told me it allows more than the ‘updates’ tab. I would prefer to use the ‘updates’ section as it is a lot cleaner and you can do more with it. We are a legal services company, so as you can imagine we do a lot of updates on each clients record. If someone can confirm that it is 1000 updates per item/ client (rather than per board) then that would be great!

Hi everyone - thanks so much for your patience with me! I have recently heard back from our developers who confirmed that the limit is in fact 1000 updates per item not per board - my sincerest apologies for the confusion caused here! As for replies, they’re not included in the limit :slight_smile:
