How to increase the PWA Project site Limits RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    In my organization, we are using Project Online. In PWA, every project is mapped to corresponding project site. 

    As per the Project server limitations, the project sites for these projects must not exceed 2000 sites in any one site collection. We almost reached the 2000 Project sites in our organization, but we don't want to create the new site collection, to create the project site for the new projects. Because, the site collection is mapped to many areas, to store the Project Online and Project sites data into our internal servers/database.

    Please suggest the alternate way, on how to increase the Project sites or how to archive the existing Project sites.

  • Hello,

    There is no way to increase the 2000 site / sub web limit in a SharePoint Online site collection. You would need to look to delete old / unused project sites but if you need the data from lists and libraries you'll need to export those out to somewhere else. How come you can't support additional site collections in the internal database process?
