Temple Reservation Limits
Are there any limits to how many people will display in your "reserved", "completed" temple ordinances?
Completed ordinances: If you go to help and type "completed temple ordinances" in the search box you will find an article that provides this information. "How do I see and print my completed ordinances list?"
I was unable to find an article that gives the limit for reserved ordinances. I did find one "My temple ordinance list won't load" by typing "temple list" in the help search field. This does talk about quantity of reserved ordinances, but does not give a limit.
Hopefully these 2 articles will help.0

Large ordinance or family names list • FamilySearch
FamilySearch is not designed to handle or display large numbers of family names on a single temple ordinance list. You can experience trouble loading a list with as few as 800 family names. This number includes family names shared with the temple.
To keep your temple ordinance list manageable, please do the following:
- Try to not reserve more family names than can be completed in a reasonable time, approximately two years or less. This number includes family names reserved and shared with the temple.
- Share family names with family and friends. Sharing names with others moves the ordinances from your temple ordinance list to theirs.
- If you have a long list, consider unreserving some of the names to allow other relatives the opportunity to find and perform ordinances for their ancestors.
Note: Ordinances for male ancestors usually take longer to be completed than ordinances for female ancestors. Sharing with family and friends may result in the work being completed more quickly.

Hello @Dennis J Yancey
I listen to Ron Tanner's Facebook Live sessions.
I while back (last year??) he talked about Temple Reservation List limits again.
My recollection is that Ron said that a number had been agreed upon as a limit, but that it had not yet been implemented. And he said that there was no time frame for this to be implemented at that particular time.
My understanding is that when the limit is implemented, that people with a larger number of reservations will just not be able to reserve further ordinances until their total is under the nominated limit.
I have "assisted" people with large reservations lists - 3000+ and more. They just cannot load their lists as the system can not handle a large number.
The number mentioned in the knowledge article posted by @SylviaSteny1 mentions a number of 800. So 800 might be a good guideline. I do also have a faint memory of hearing Ron mention a number of 300 as being a good guideline.0
Dennis, to clarify—if you are referring to the number of persons on the list of ordinances you have submitted which have been completed, the answer is 3,000 or those completed within the last 2 years.
