      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…

      SharePoint stores it's content in a SQL database. The 5000 items limit in a document library makes no sense especially when there is an item limit setting in the view, which btw is ok if it's lower than 5000. Many of my customers have up to 20000 documents in a single document library and wants to find duplicates which requires the use of "Show all items without folders" in views. A view without folders but with a item limit of lets say 1000 would work just fine. But it doesn't.

        Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now.

        Corporate lifecycle is a real and constant pressure in business, often resulting in a need to rename the Office 365 Tenant. To that end we are working on the solution to change the SharePoint domain URL (contoso.sharepoint.com renamed to fabrikam.sharepoint.com). This capability will also then enable the renaming of an individual site collection (contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/abc to contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/xyz).

        While we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share at this time, we’ll update your suggestion with details as they become available.

        I can only agree with others. This is a must!

          I can't understand why Microsoft hasn't built in a tool for copying/moving files and folders BETWEEN document libraries. This a very common request! Keep in mind that SharePoint was released in 2001. 15 years later, the product STILL lacks this tool.
          Many users are now on Macs or run FF or Chrome without support for the Explorer view. Keep in mind that Microsoft has developed the SiteManager (/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx) but for unknown reason stopped the development of that tool. Yes it's there in SPO but lacks move/copy capabilities (!)
