    Can someone explain what the issue is here? I am using Win 10, IE11 and SharePoint 2013 OnPremises and I have no trouble logging into SharePoint as a different user. If you have a shortcut to IE on your desktop, just [Shift]+[Right-click] and choose "Run as different user." Is it a problem with SharePoint online?

    The additional problem with "Manage files with no checked in version" is that if the document library contains more than 5,000 items, you can only use this feature during the large query window (if someone has a way around that, let me know). So being able to allow an admin to do a force check-in would be very useful on large document libraries.

    I'll add on to this idea. It would be nice if you could group the site contents page items by the type of app just like you can create views on lists and libraries that are grouped. Like in the example above, when you have a lot of apps on a site, it becomes difficult to find what you're looking for. If they were grouped by type, it would make finding items much easier especially if you could use filters and sorting options.

    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.

    For…

    I think a lot of the problem is education. Maybe Microsoft could produce some training materials or another edX SharePoint course specific to overcoming the threshold limits and explaining them. I attended this one back in August, which was very good: https://www.edx.org/course/sharepoint-basics-it-professionals-microsoft-cld202x.

    Today one of my users encountered the 5,000 item limit. After speaking with him, I found out they have no need to retain items in the list more than 90 days old. The simple solution was to delete everything that was more than 90 days old and then set a retention policy to dump things in the recycle bin after 90 days. Now they'll never run into the problem again (unless their normal daily volume increases substantially).
