  1. Remove the list view threshold (5000 by default)

    This limit has always been a bit laughable, and is even more so as we develop more client side applications. In SharePoint 2007 we didn't have this limit and were allowed to make our own mistakes. Now that hardware is so much more powerful, we need this limit removed so that we can build enterprise-class applications.

      We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

      Spring 2018 update:
      - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
      - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

      What we are working on now:
      - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

      In our backlog:
      - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
      - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

      • Bulk check-in/check-out

        I need to be able to check-in or check-out multiple files. I'm not able to do this currently, when selecting multiple documents.
