      Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now.

      Corporate lifecycle is a real and constant pressure in business, often resulting in a need to rename the Office 365 Tenant. To that end we are working on the solution to change the SharePoint domain URL (contoso.sharepoint.com renamed to fabrikam.sharepoint.com). This capability will also then enable the renaming of an individual site collection (contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/abc to contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/xyz).

      While we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share at this time, we’ll update your suggestion with details as they become available.

      definitely an issue which I am now facing. we have merged with one company and then taken over another company within the last two years. now we are rebranding. I am faced with having to find a way to reflect the new brand while stuck on a tenant that has the original company name (that will completely disappear soon) in the url.

      needless to say marketing and product are not too happy with that and I currently have to use google drive for all external shares - which is a lot of overhead that could be avoided if I just could change the name to the new domain that already is fully integrated and verified on my tenant.

        We are changing the status here back to “Working on it”, as we are not yet done with all that we want to do here, and as many of you have pointed this out. We apologize for prematurely changing the status to done, please keep the feedback coming.

        The video on https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53861 (focusing on large lists at 42 minutes and 25 seconds) describes some of the changes that we delivered back in the second half of 2017:
        - Modern UI now has a lot of support for adding indexes to large lists and libraries on the fly, reducing the number of throttling errors experienced by our users, and some new UI for browsing through items in large lists with our paging model
        - SharePoint runs predictive indexing jobs to automatically add indexes as lists get larger based on your view definitions, and updates these indexes when you add/update your views…

        "The 5,000 item threshold is likely here to stay"
        This arbitrary number is the worst limitation you could have thought up to cripple online sharepoint.
        Every single other cloud storage has no such restriction - even worse, on premises sharepoint can be configured too in that way - making transition of existing structures de facto impossible.

        Personal onedrive folders (private and office365 business) are not limited to 5000 files either.

        Counting versions of documents against the 5000 limit just is the cherry on top of this whole craziness. Not even small companies can work with this without completely rebuilding their structures, which is definitely NOT a goal when moving to office365.

        This issue has repeatedly blocked transitioning from google docs and is causing all kinds of problems with people ending up on dropbox, box.com with business data because office365 azure sharepoint is just not fit for use.

        I do not care wheter it has a gazillion super nifty features to work with (that roughly 0.0005% of all customers use or care about) it has to be able to compete with other cloud based solutions when it comes to the basics.

        number of files in a given library - you do not get more basic than that.
