How many taxonomies and terms can be in the SharePoint Term Store?"

SharePoint Managed Metadata Question of the Week Each week we will be featuring an audience question from WAND's recent webinar, "Managed Metadata 101: Taxonomies and Tagging in SharePoint," and sharing the answer with our blog audience.

This week's question is: "How many taxonomies and terms can be in the SharePoint Term Store?"

Answer: There are some maximum supported limits in the term store per Microsoft:  Maximum number of term sets in a term store is 1000. The maximum number of terms in a term set is 30,000.  The maximum total number of terms in a term store is 1,000,000.    Finally, the maximum number of levels of a term set is 7. 

The good news, is that in the vast majority of cases the practical limits occur before you will encounter SharePoint limits.
