      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…

      This could be resolved if lists wern't so horribly inefficient in SQL. How many SQL queries you want to do just to get a list of items!

        I have to agree with this. We do not use the utterly broken "sync" function of Onedrive for business as we do not need syncronised content. All our staff work directly from the library. We open with explorer and create an explorer favourite. That way we can then save directly to this location from any app like word or even non-microsoft apps. It gives us a more seemless experience to go File-Save As - Favourite location (1 of up to 30 doc libs typically). In stead of:
        File - Save As - Desktop - Go to Desktop - Drag, drop, wait, edit metadata. Save. It's a rediculous user experience.
