  • The maximum size of a file is 1 GB.

Apps

Item Limit Value Notes
Records No upper limit on the number of records
 
An app might run slower when it has a larger number of records. The responsiveness in viewing or processing data depends on filter conditions, the number of fields, and other usage conditions. We have verified that users can add or view records comfortably on an app that has 1,000,000 records.
Views Up to 1,000 per app  
Graph Up to 1,000 per app If the number of summarized items or the total number of Level 1 to 3 items exceeds 500, the graph can display leading 500 items.
Pivot Table
  • Up to 1,000 rows displayed on a vertical axis
  • Up to 50 columns displayed on a horizontal axis
 
Plug-in Up to 20 per app For each plug-in, you can use kintone.plugin.app.setConfig to set key-value pairs unless the total size of the values exceeds 256 KB.
Size of files for plug-ins JavaScript files, CSS files, icon files: 20 MB
HTML files: 64 KB
 
Total size of files contained in a plug-in package 100 MB  
App Templates Up to 100 apps contained in an app template This limit also includes the number of apps that are associated through Lookup, Related Records, or App Action.

A table counts as the number of fields placed in the table plus one.

Field Name Up to 128 full-width or half-width characters  
Field Code Up to 128 full-width or half-width characters  
Field Entry Limits See Field Entry Limits.  
Number of record filter conditions No upper limit on the number of records
  • You might be unable to open a record from a record list when 70 or more conditions are specified.
  • If you use a record filter with contains or does not contain condition and more than 100,000 records with specified keywords returned, a warning message appears and the record filtering does not work correctly.
  • The filter fails to return records correctly if it returns over 2 million fields or the total size of records exceeds dozens of megabytes (attachments are not included in the total). If this error happens, reduce the number of fields or records to retrieve.
Excel files to be imported Up to 1 MB with 1,000 rows  
CSV, TSV, or TXT files to be imported Up to 100 MB with 100,000 rows
