Knowledge Article Number 000213412
Description Available in: Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited and Developer Editions

Some organizations find that the default Multi-Select Picklist Value limit of 150 is not sufficient for their needs. In the event your organization encounters this hurdle, Salesforce Support can assist in increasing the limit. Currently, the maximum allowed value is 500. We encourage the request to be made based on your organization's actual needs and not for the maximum limit, if it will not be fully utilized. 

We would also encourage reviewing the following documentation prior to requesting this increase: 
Multi-Select Choice Fields Overview

NOTE: While the limit of total values can be increased to 500. The maximum select-able values at one time is still limited to 100. 
Resolution If you've reviewed all relevant information and would like to move forward with increasing this limit, please take the following steps: 
  1. Have a System Administrator log a Case with Salesforce Support 
  2. Please include all essential details. This includes a business reason for the request as well as the actual limit being requested.
  3. Support will review the Case and action it as needed.
