          Dustin, neither have I when I'm under 5000, but once you go over 5000 items, you cannot create new indexes, therefore you can't create new views.

          Many times now, we carefully plan architectures to store hundreds of thousands of files, many folders, none going over 5000 items. We thing we have everything accounted for, indexed columns the whole nine yards. Then something needs changed down the line, maybe it's a new column or a new index or permissions on a subfolder need changed to not inherit. If you are over the limit you just can't do a lot of these things.

          Yes there are several out there, this one is more directed at increasing the priority of this issue as it pertains to their roadmap. It is a general we will get to it sometime in 2017, I'd like to see a specific quarter or date this is targetted for.

              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…

              Eric Alexander commented  · 

              No matter how much you preplan for large lists, something always changes down the line and you become powerless to do anything about it. Users can keep adding, and adding, and adding, and you as an administrator have NO means to help them. Moving or deleting files to get under 5000 items causes a whole range of problems; it's clumsy, slow, difficult, time consuming, and can lead to 404s as people try to access content that has been moved. Increase the limit, give us a happy hour, or update TechNet to show the actual boundary of SharePoint Online to be 5,000 items, not 30 million.

                It is a pain yes, but I'd rather let site owners manage their access that IT support requests
