            To expand upon this, it should be the full compliance suite we currently see in SPO/ODfB today. DLP, tags, etc.

              Thanks for your feedback! Your idea sounds interesting, but we need more information to understand. Can you tell us more about how you would like to use this feature?

              Is your primary intent to use these logs for reporting and for troubleshooting? Will collection and centralization of these logs in a DB, such as the usage DB, provide the functionality that you seek (if these logs contain data of who performed the action, what the action is, what the target of the action, and when the timestamp of the action is)? How important is having a UX, in addition to the centralized log location, on a scale from 1-5 (1 being least important, 2 being somewhat important, 3 being neutral, 4 being important, 5 being not important)?

              Anonymous... :) I've had extensive conversations with the PG directly on this topic; don't worry, they do fully understand the request. It's a complicated solution and goes above and beyond 'just implement some logging'.

              The idea would be to audit actions taken place on SharePoint objects, similar to the AuditLog/EventCache we have today, but more detailed. If I ran '$wa = Get-SPWebApplication https://webAppUrl;$wa.AlertsEnabled = $true;$wa.Update()`, I would want that string recorded to a log with a date/timestamp and username attached to it and if the command encountered an error or not. This would go to a queryable database (through the OM or T-SQL); such a structure could be simply a datetime: occurred on, nvarchar(255): username, nvarchar(MAX): action/cmdlet/script run, bit: success/error during cmdlet execution, uniqueidentifier: CorrelationId, if applicable. UX would be the least important (1), I'd be happy with a CSV export from a Get-SPAdminActionLog. Centralized Log location would be a must (5). If there is an option to clear the log, then much like the Windows Event Log, I would want that to be the first action recorded with the administrator's name attached to it. Ultimately, what I want is to be able to tell which administrator took such an action against an object in order to place responsibility with that administrator. Right now, I simply cannot do that with ease, or at all depending on the scenario. SharePoint Insights will not always be appropriate for this -- this needs to be available on farms that do not have any sort of Internet access or for companies who do not have O365 Subscriptions.

                    We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

                    Spring 2018 update:
                    - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
                    - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

                    What we are working on now:
                    - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

                    In our backlog:
                    - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
                    - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

                    For…

                    This is a SQL Server limitation, where requesting >5000 items introduces a table-level lock, versus a row-level lock for <5000 items.
