      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…

      Simply syncing a library with a local machine fails if there are more than 5000 items in the library. You can't expect admins to create a new library, migrate part of the old library and configure new sync jobs, then reconfigure the network shares, every time a library hits 5000 items. If the list view limit can't be addressed the OneDrive for Business sync client needs to be more intelligent in splitting up the queries and running the job in chunks.
