My company is moving from a dedicated MS Project server to SAAS MS Project Online. I am wondering if there is going to be any performance issues due to the size of some of the project plans we will be migrating over. Microsoft does not post any project size recommendations that I can find for MS Project Online. Example of a project I am concerned about. Project is approx. 5000 lines, fully resource loaded Can MS Project Online handle projects that are that big?

@pmikota -- Yes, Project Online can handle a project with 5,000 tasks.  If you have dozens or hundreds of resources assigned TO EACH TASK, that can slow down the saving and publishing operations where it might take the software a minute to save or publish your project.  But yes, the software can easily handle a project of your size.  Hope this helps.
