      Let's start with nothing fancy - just give us the ability to grab the real estate we need. I will continue to use and recommend "classic" pages with a single CEWP until this capability is available in the SharePoint Framework. Most of the work I do is not a "Web Part", but an application that happens to sit in a SharePoint page and use lists and libraries for its data sources.

          Thank you for your feedback! Just letting you know that we absolutely have this in our backlog, but unfortunately this currently is not included in our short term engineering tasks. We absolutely understand the request and seeing vote counts around this, will help to further prioritize this work for next sprints.

            I did a blog post on this which explains in much greater detail why I've made this suggestion.

              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…

              Search for "5000" here and see how many different items dance around this specific topic.

                The only way to expand SharePoint events from a calendar is using CAML. There should be a way to retrieve the recurring events fully expanded using REST.

                        Apologies for the delayed update on this suggestion. We are aware of interest in better creation and management of content types – especially as we’ve moved forward with modernizing many facets of the product. While we aren’t ready to share specifics yet, this is an area we can say we are looking at in 2018. Thanks!

                        Issues like this are great for "partner opportunities", but they are horrible for end users.

                            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…
