      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…

      The 5,000 file limit is a massive problem for small business users of Office 365. Those wanting to move to a one-stop modern Office/Email/File management system face unreasonable restrictions due to this limit. While SharePoint is powerful and does make overcoming this limit possible with customized list views, most small businesses aren't going to take the time to administer SharePoint sites. Instead they're stuck paying the monthly subscription fee for Office 365 and paying more for a Dropbox or Box licence.

      You have to fix this and make the SharePoint/OneDrive for business services more appealing for those wishing to migrate from Dropbox or Box.
