          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.

              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…

              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
