Max # of values in a custom form field?


Not applicable

From either a practical (length of user scrolling) or performance (will Workfront choke on the data), what's the recommendation for max number of values in a drop down field in a custom form? The reason: we have a data set of about 1,600 values we need to bring into the tool and we want to see what the system limits are first. Thx!

I'm not sure what the limit is, my largest dropdown "only" has 440 values, but if I click that dropdown and start typing what I'm looking for it jumps to that selection - I don't see the text I'm typing, but it jumps to that item - so that at least helps with limiting the scrolling needed.
