    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…

    List throttling the way it is implemented, while good intentioned, seems to cause more problems for end users AND administrators than it solves. If a list is over the threshold limit, it won't let you do anything without upping the threshold, rendering the list useless. When you up the limit, you defeat the purpose of having that limit in the first place. I don't know if getting rid of a limit is necessarily the answer, but it should behave more like the maximum page amount that one can request at one time, rather than the maximum total items you can have before you are blocked from doing anything. As a farm administrator and a developer, I have seen absolutely no benefit to the current implementation. My vote is to fix it or forget it.
