Each PlanGrid license comes with a certain number of available sheets. All sheets available in your account count toward your total sheet limit. This includes sheets you have uploaded as well as those shared with you by other users.
In order to maximize your subscription, it’s important that you manage your sheet count. Subscription plans have the following number of sheets available to them:
- Nailgun: 550 sheets
- Dozer: 5,000 sheets
- Crane: unlimited sheets

Exceeding sheet limits
If you exceed the sheet limit on your plan, you’ll see a screen informing you of this:
If you are over your account limit, you can unlock your account by either upgrading to a plan with more sheets or by reducing the number of sheets on your account.
For full instructions on upgrading your account, see How do I Upgrade My PlanGrid Subscription?.
Leaving projects from the "Over Sheet Limit" screen
If you don’t want to upgrade your subscription, you can reduce your sheet usage by removing yourself from projects. This can be done directly from the “Over Sheet Limit Screen,” which notifies you that you’ve exceeded your subscription’s sheet usage.
- Log in to your account at www.plangrid.com
- Choose a project to remove yourself from and select “Leave Project”
Managing sheet usage
It’s important that you manage your sheet usage to make sure you don’t exceed your subscription’s sheet limit. You can do this by removing yourself from projects that are completed or that you no longer need to access or by removing unused sheets from existing projects.
Removing yourself from a project
When a project is finished, you can remove yourself from it so that it no longer counts against your sheet limit. There are two ways to do this: from the team page and from the settings page.
From the Team page
Select the project you’d like to remove yourself from and enter the “Team” page. Once there, select your name and click “Remove From Project”
From the Settings page
Select the project you’d like to remove yourself from and enter the “Settings” page. Once there, click “Remove Project From My Account.
Confirm the removal by typing “LEAVE” in the confirmation box and clicking “Leave Project.”
Removing sheets from a project
If there are sheets in a project that you no longer need, you can simply delete them. This frees up space, but keep in mind it will also remove the sheets from the project for all users on the team.
Only project Admins are able to delete sheets from a project.
Deleting sheets from the Sheets icon
- Select the project that you’d like to remove sheets from, then click on the “Sheets” icon.
- Choose the list view of sheets and then find the sheets you’d like to delete by using the search bar, filtering by tag, or filtering by version.
- Select the checkboxes next to the sheets you’d like to delete.
4. Click on the “Delete” button to remove these sheets from the project.
5. Confirm the deletion by typing the number of sheets you're deleting and clicking "Permanently Delete Sheets"
