Estimate attribute limit

There is a limit of one work year for the estimate attribute of the work item.

Is this limit associated with the presentation?

If so, would it be possible to create a new presentation associated with the estimate attribute that would increase the limit? Would there be any implications for the work load calculations if this limit is increased?

Yes, the limit is enforced by the presentation part. Technically its a
long storing milliseconds, so with a different presentation part you
should be able to provide higher values. However, load and progress
computations might fail due to large numbers - this is untested. Just
out of curiosity, why do you need such large estimates?

Thanks for your quick reponse, Johannes.

We are creating work item types to represent initiative and other concepts for a PPM solution and initiative can require an effort that is greater than one work year.
