        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…

        Just so people aren't honeydicked by your misleading "Boom! It's Done". The issues IS NOT FIXED!!! Microsoft failed to deliver on this and are abandoning all hope. The SQL limit is a sad excuse and shouldn't be used as a technical limitation.

        I understand the technical issue and how to overcome it, but not all users are willing to do the leg work up front for several reasons. The biggest reason is probably because they don't initially know their list is going to scale to that size. We are moving from SharePoint 2007, where the LVT didn't exist so how do we migrate content or tell users they have to follow new rules now. MS get it together and get this fixed or make it look like it's fixed, stop passing the buck to the end-user
