The number of items in this list exceeds the list view threshold SharePoint

When you view a SharePoint list Enterprise and receive this error message

The number of items in this list exceeds the list view threshold, which is 5000 items. Tasks that cause excessive server load (such as those involving all list items) are currently prohibited, This issue occurs because SharePoint uses the Large List Resource Throttling feature


By default, SharePoint list view threshold is configured at 5,000 items,. When the defined item limit in a list is exceeded, the message is displayed.

For best practices, I don’t recommend to exceed the limits and instead of change that limit is to work on planning and indexing your library…
You can change this limit from central admin as below, but for SharePoint online please refer to planning and managing the large amount of contents files on O365 … Manage large lists and libraries in Office 365
Applied on SharePoint on-premises:
  • Go to your SP2013 Farm’s Central Administration
  • Go to the “Manage Web Applications” under the “Application Management” section
  • Select the “Web Application” where you would like to do the changes…
  • Click the “General Settings” dropdown and select “Resources Throttling
  • Increase the “List View Threshold

Post a comment or contact me for any questions or help that we can provide for you, hope those information are helpful for you,..See you again on new post
