You can have millions of items in a list, but as soon as the view you are using returns more than 5000 ítems then you get an error, the only solution is to create filters and indexes to this view, and it has to be done before reaching the 5000 ítems limit, otherwise there won't be a way to create the indexes / filters.
I know about this workaround because I created a support case in Microsoft Premium, here you have the reference: [REG:116022413747778] Sharepoint History list has been lost or can't be seen51 votesboom! it's done · AdminSharePoint UserVoice Admin (SharePoint UserVoice Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Apologies for late update here. We’re going to close out this suggestion, directing folks to recent updates we shared at Ignite 2017 around smarter indexing and UX improvements to better manage querying and displaying content from large lists (for more details check out this Ignite session: https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53861). For specific scenarios or feedback on this approach please post new suggestions (noting that SQL will never scan more than 5k rows, so specific feedback/suggestions where the current approach still blocks scenarios would be welcome). Thanks!
Now we're trying the display list using new experience which released recently.
As announced at Ignite 2017 and recently released – we now support column formatting, SPFx customization, and modern theming. For details check out the following Ignite talks: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Ignite-Content-2017/Geek-out-with-the-product-team-on-SharePoint-lists-and-libraries/m-p/98886#M425 and https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Ignite-Content-2017/What-s-new-and-what-s-coming-for-branding-and-organizing-your/m-p/98884#M423
SharePoint supports dragging files from your desktop into a SharePoint document library, but as soon as you want to drag in a folder containing multiple files/sub-folders this is not supported. You have to recreate the folders manually in document library and then drag in files separately, this consumes a lot of time.48 votesboom! it's done · AdminSharePoint UserVoice Admin (SharePoint UserVoice Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
This works in Chrome and Edge now.
The 'Navigate Up' button on the library ribbon tab is too hidden for users and it also requires an extra click every time you need to go up. The breadcrumb also requires an extra click because you have to click the 'Browse' tab in the ribbon to see it every time.47 votes
Take a look at the new modern document library experience!
When using the "Copy" function in a library, it seems the intention is to create a copy of the document in another library.
But when users want to just create a copy of a document in the same location with a different file name, SharePoint throws an error.
Why can the copy function not simply allow a new copy in the same library with a different filename?40 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We’re going to call this one done as the specific action of copying a selected item to the same library is supported in the modern UX. If there are other related scenarios you have feedback on please open and drive support with new suggestions. Thanks!
When sharing a Communication Site with external users (activated with Set-SPOSite -Identity https://... -SharingCapability ExternalUserSharingOnly), they dont see the top navigation unless they reduce their browser window size below 1024px. Below 1024px window size the burger menu for mobile viewing shows up.
This is obviously a bug that requires immediate fixing.
Please fix this asap.37 votes
Modern pages allow the addition of news, links, activity, etc., but there is no option to display list view web parts. We use lists constantly and rely on list view web parts. Specifically, I would like to continue using the very cool "Promoted Links" list in new sites and use the standard web part for that list. The tiles have been very popular for key navigation elements for a site, and I don't want to lose that when moving to modern pages/sites.31 votes
We’ve just starting rolling this out to First Release customers now
See the TechCommunity thread here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Blog/Introducing-SharePoint-modern-list-library-web-parts/ba-p/64581
In document libraries and in the List View it would be great if the column widths and text size could be adjustable. This would make larger lists a bit more readable to the user rather that letting Sharepoint decide the column width.30 votes
This works in modern lists and libraries.
Currently only links with associated URL's can be added. It would be great to be able to add headings without associated links to assist with grouping27 votes
We have added support for labels on the hub navigation.
give an easy way for users to copy a file from a SharePoint site document library into their own OneDrive For Business. It was announced at the "FutureOfSharePoint" webinar that users will be able to copy a file from their OneDrive to a SharePoint site and I think it would also be beneficial to allow users to copy files the other way. I
m hoping this is already planned but just not mentioned.23 votes
Copy/Move within library, between libraries and across sites including to/from ODB is now possible.
For questions, please reach out via the SharePoint Techcommunity: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/ct-p/SharePoint
For any additional features, please search for or open new UserVoice suggestions.
It is crucial for many of our customers that they do not get their top-menu in SharePoint removed when accessing document libraries (the new OneDrive for Business look). Please make it possible to activate this so the users are not "lost" in their own intranet.23 votes
Top (Global) navigation works in modern libraries now — but not if you’re using managed navigation. We’re working on managed navigation support now.
Ok, so quick edit views seem to be not supported in the new UI...you can create a new quick edi view, but you can only use in the old UI. It could be nice, and necessary, to add support to quick views in the new UI23 votes
Apologies for delay on updating – quick edit is available for modern library UI!
I should be able to right click on a document in a library and open it in a new browser tab.23 votes
This is how it works in the upcoming new document library experience.
Make the "(+) new document" button in doclib match available ContentTypes in the New button from Ribbon.
Please make the "(+) new document" button from the web part and document libraries match available CTs as the ones available under the "New" button from the Ribbon. Please also include "Document sets" in the available CTs :)19 votes
Try this out in SharePoint Online and let us know what you think!
We love the new hub site feature, and the roll ups for sites and highlighted content. What we really need is a roll up web part for events, so that all event calendars accross the hub can show on one webpart.
Uses for this would be to show all events, company wide, happening this week.17 votes
Option to roll up events from “all sites in the hub” is now available
Please make the navigation items of the Hub site navigation bigger. More in taste of the command bar for instance or the normal site navigation. It is to small at the moment and I get a lot of comments on this from clients.
Thanks in advance,

Whilst the modern pages are improving all the time, with new web parts and layouts, I would like to see web part connections being made available in modern pages. This is extremely useful, especially when creating dashboard pages.17 votes
Thanks for your patience, we now support dynamic data between SPFx webparts. see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/dynamic-data

Hi everyone, we added this capability earlier this spring! Hope it helps!
I heard that in SharePoint 2016 there was NOT going to be any SharePoint Designer! PLEASE! I use it almost daily to provide simple workflows such as email to colleagues and other options that "Out of the Box" functionality can not allow and where InfoPath does not provide "If Then" statements for the ability to create Calendar items if conditions are met.17 votes
There is no new version of SharePoint Designer, but the 2013 version will continue to work with SharePoint 2016. We’re not taking it away, we’re just not investing more in SharePoint Designer
In SharePoint Online, the site settings option is missing in all the modern pages. It looks weird for all the users as they don't find the direct option to access the site settings page from the landing page of the site. It would be great if you include the site settings option in the modern pages/sites.16 votes
The site settings link is now in the gear dropdown on any modern page.
