      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.

          The 5,000 item threshold is likely here to stay. We are aware that it takes awareness on both sides to get past this limitation: list owners have to build the right fields, indices, and indexed views so that end user queries can run successfully in large lists. And then, end users have to run the correct queries – they can’t just open the root of the list, they have to use a filtered, indexed view.

          We want to pursue work that helps on both these ends – for example, proactively indexing more lists, making suggestions to list owners for views to create that will help end users, and helping end users at query time pick filters that will unblock their queries. Additionally, we want to increase our support for running more types of queries in large lists when an index is present – for example, instead of requiring an indexed…

          "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.

            Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we like your suggestion—to allow external folder sharing without requiring recipients to sign-in—and are working on it.

            Within this thread, we also heard feedback that we should simply our account creation process. We listened to your advice, and have a new and improved lightweight sign-up experience, which you can see here when you click “Create Account”: https://account.microsoft.com/about

            Finally. Please give an ETA though we need this for several projects and it would be helpful to know if I have to commit to google drive for the next 2 months or 2 years until this is finally available here.

              We understand how important it is for you to be able to sync every document library, not just ones with this surprising limit, and how confusing it is that OneDrive for Business no longer has the same limitation with our new sync client.

              As we announced in our recent OneDrive for Business updates, we’re working on enabling our new sync client to sync team site libraries, which will also remove this limitation: https://blogs.office.com/2016/04/12/onedrive-for-business-recognized-as-an-efss-leader-and-continues-momentum-with-spring-updates/

              Thanks again for your patience.
