Increase max values for Controlling Picklist Fields

Knowledge Article Number 000221068
Available in: Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited and Developer Editions

Some Organizations find that the default size of a Controlling Picklist (300) 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 value allowed is 500.
First, please review our documentation on how Dependent Picklists function in Salesforce. 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. Include 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. 

Tip: We encourage the request to be made based on your Organization's business need and not for the maximum limit allowed.
