    Actually a lot of the table functions aren't there:

    - Can't shade cells
    - Very limited color options for font and highlighting (which is separate from shading)
    - Can't insert images into tables (this is huge for the Modern proof of concept I'm trying to create right now)
    - Can't merge cells
    - Cell highlighting is not user-friendly (in Chrome) and doesn't seem to extend to the end of the row
    - Of course, we can't embed custom HTML so this keeps us from working around the above limitations

    What we really need is a full rich-text editor where we can have a lot more options. I have to include Ye Olde "This is going to be a big impediment to adoption" line when it comes to creating basic web-publishing content.

    We need a lot more table options in general. For instance:

    Table and cell widths
    Border, margin, and padding options (including borderless)
    Merge cells
    Cell shading
    Draggable points in the UI to resize tables, rows, and columns

    Identical post Scott mentions is https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/35200339-additonal-web-part-functionality. Together these have 72 votes.

    We use accordions on our intranet a lot--they're custom-built with CQWPs and item styles. I know nothing's simple, but this would be a really straightforward thing to design and release, and should include the ability to style the panes and headers with colors, font sizes, opacity, custom image for the collapse arrows, borders, and margins.

    In addition to this, MS could include all sorts of standard UI widgets in SP: Flyout menus, sliders, cover flow-type carousels, buttons, etc. Go wild! These are really easy ways to allow us to customize SP, especially since lots of customization is going away in Modern.

    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…

    It seems like this isn't really an increase of the LVT, but indexing to try to work around it.

    "Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled." - This is possibly the most important point. We use K2 and are finding throttling issues with the API calls to SP lists. Not fun.

    A consolidated admin view of where published content types are being used is still being evaluated, but for folks voting for the related use case of “better creation and management of content types” please refer to site designs (aka.ms/spsitedesigns) as a modern mechanism to create/apply content types to site libraries. We are also looking at how this could be more easily supported from hub sites.

    Something visual would be fantastic here, like a network chart/mind-map showing what lists/libraries a content type is associated to. At the very least, a tree view showing the same info.

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…
