        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…

        I cannot believe that anyone would scroll through 5,000+ list items (& documents), BUT we do need to be able to easily filter a 5,000+ lists and/or retrieve calculations on the results of 5,000+ so is a possible solution.....

        Provide with every list a filter/refiner web part that appears above the list if switched on lets say in the view settings. The web part could auto show the fields that have been set in the view settings, so users can select from option fields, select dates, etc...The list on open can either show no data or the first 'x' number of results based on the view and a message informing the user that only 'x' is being shown. If the refine/search results is over 5,000+ show the max amount but provide any count/sum set in the view. Just putting it out there (maybe someone below has !).
