        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 5000 limit causes me endless problems. I keep creating and changing views, have all key columns indexed but still get call from irate customer every few months saying 'Threshold Limit has been reached'. The issue is that to pull all items back on an individual (patient) we have a link that searches all the items in the list. Please, please find a way to fix this biggest frustration.

          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.
