After deleting few tasks, I was able to add new tasks. But those old tasks, don't have any attachments. Finally I removed old buckets and working on the plan now. I will raise the support ticket.

How do you get support? I've been "managing my space" by deleting tasks, however I can't "make" anymore space, I can't use planner anymore.

Got below response from the support.
Reason for this issue is the user reached the 250 task limitation.
On further search found the below URLs, which may be useful.
I feel this limitation is not correct.

I run an IT department of two people and we can't use planner anymore because "we are out of space". I can't imagine how a larger company is using this. I keep thinking there must be something wrong with our setup.
I've just created a brand new plan and can't assign a single task to my assistant.

Support, well that's another thing, yes we have opened support with Ingram Support since Microsoft support directs us back to our supplier.
PS. Thank you!!!

Thank you. I found a quick way to delete all of my 2016 work, so I am doing that this week so I can start working in 2017. We'll see how far into the year I get! If not, there's always Trello to go back to.
PS. My Microsoft partner also got about the same answer, they replied with "There were no further updates other than Support repeating the same suggestions. I made it a point of emphasis that this is something they should be looking at since the limit is rather restrictive. I did reference your threads and the information found there as well. I will close out the ticket for this issue since there isn’t much else we can do about it at this time unless MS changes the limit."

Again, thank you very much for your reply and help. I REALLY LIKE Planner! Just so bummed I'm stuck. Your reply isn't exactly my experience, for example, I wiped out entire plans and created new ones. The new plan says "out of space", one with zero tasks. Knowing the true limits will help, maybe I can figure out how to use it again. Please and thank you!

More people are using planner in our organization. I litterly used Microsoft adoption strategries to roll this out. Now I am getting blamed for interference with business project planning.
NOT GOOD. Microsoft, please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Planner got the ability to add multiple peope to tasks, cool...which means now they will run out of space even faster???
07-25-2017 01:37 PM
Yes I have this problem too i have assigned 1400 task and this erorr appeared , anyone know what to do ?
09-14-2017 05:04 AM
When will the limits be erased? Need all planner limits to be erased (user can only create 1500 tasks and user can only have 250 assigned tasks).

Hi @Deleted, please go through this post which discusses in detail about the limitations in Planner.

@Brian Smith, Is there a place where planner constraints / limitations / constraints are documented yet? Can't find anything in technet. We're setting up Team & plan combos for a couple projects as a test-bed for how we might use them more widely to democratize task creation, assignment, status updating, etc. - and it sure would be great to know what we're up against before we get in too deep.

The latest from the Planner team from their Roadmap blog post - https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Planner-Ignite-Review-and-Roadmap/ba-p/126858/ju... was that all functional limitations were being removed.
"Removing task limits from Microsoft Planner
Many users have asked about overall task limits within Planner, and by the end of December, we will have removed all functional limits to tasks. When users open their Planner boards, we will surface the tasks that are most relevant to them and provide options to fetch older tasks as needed."
Was there some other limit that was concerning you? @Joanna Parkhurst might also be able to comment.

Nothing further, just zero awareness it happened - hard to use blog posts (form a source I didn't know existed... still used to technet/msdn blogs) as the go-to place for product documentation. Also, the (or at least one that returned from a google search) uservoice entry isn't marked with any comment or status saying it's been delivered or was being considered https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/16700584-re...
Thanks for pointing out this blog (and post) exists - I just followed.
01-09-2018 11:27 AM
I agree we don't make it easy to follow along Ian. Certainly for Planner I think the team can confirm that the TechCommunity blog will be their primary announcement site going forward and @George Bullock has taken over from Dave Heller - so he can confirm. Major announcements might be on the Office Blog at https://blogs.office.com/en-us/ . I do some support posts on Planner and a few light dev topics on my MSDN blog at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/brismith in case you haven't seen them. KB style documents can be found at support.microsoft.com - such as the FAQ at https://support.office.com/en-US/article/Answers-to-top-Microsoft-Planner-questions-d1a2d4e6-a4d7-40...
I hope these few links help.

Thanks for the info. I now have my bearings... but wow was it difficult to find them. If you're looking for a user story...
I struggle with the comparative disconnectedness of techcommunity.microsoft.com and support.office.com versus what I had been used to with Technet. FWIW, beyond just using search engines (which didn't land me the blog post or article you linked), I went from:
And I would have expected to be able to navigate to https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner/ct-p/Planner ... which ideally also provides a way to get you back to some sort of consolidated help landing page.

I hear you Ian. I think I lost some readers and search ranking when blogs.msdn.com moved to blogs.msdn.microsoft.com - and I often find my content via search on other peoples blogs where they just scrapped it (If I'm lucky a credit and with a reference back) rather than seeing my own post higher in the rankings. Hopefully we will get some longer term consistency when the current migration to docs.microsoft.com - the real new home for TechNet.
Thanks for the feedback on the navigation - I'll share that with my colleagues from UA and Marketing.
