      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…

      Dear MS, I'm a SharePoint admin working for a company with about 230 users. I've been working with SharePoint 2007 and 2010 on prem and about two years ago we decided to migrate our documents to Office 365, SharePoint Online.

      Basically since then I have been struggling with the list view threshold and other list/column limitations. I've learned everything there is to know about it and how I'm supposed to work around it and all I can say is:

      You are currently not providing a usable product and your workarounds are insufficient and unrealistic.
