      The 5,000 item threshold is likely here to stay. We are aware that it takes awareness on both sides to get past this limitation: list owners have to build the right fields, indices, and indexed views so that end user queries can run successfully in large lists. And then, end users have to run the correct queries – they can’t just open the root of the list, they have to use a filtered, indexed view.

      We want to pursue work that helps on both these ends – for example, proactively indexing more lists, making suggestions to list owners for views to create that will help end users, and helping end users at query time pick filters that will unblock their queries. Additionally, we want to increase our support for running more types of queries in large lists when an index is present – for example, instead of requiring an indexed…

      the 5,000 is pushing us to pursue other solutions outside SharePoint.
      We created a list to hold user's stats; and for stats purposes it is worthless to retrieve chunks of data when you want to know how many selected a, b, or c, or group them by hour.
      As a workaround, we connected the list to PowerBI. From there we created a dashboard which actually can work with all the data at the same time. Until now, this workaround worked just fine, but we just got a message saying that dashboard sharing will no longer be part of PowerBI free.
      We just want SharePoint to work and not to start thinking on workarounds or 3rd party applications to make it effective and efficient.
