How to exceed SharePoint list view threshold

SharePoint libraries and lists come with a default limitation of 5,000 items per list (SharePoint Server 2013) or 20,000 items per list (SharePoint Server 2016 and SharePoint Server 2019).

If you need to upload a bigger number of documents than is allowed by your SharePoint threshold, you can create a new library or list and then add then add indexes to the required view columns.

If a SharePoint list column is indexed, then you will be able to upload any number of documents to SharePoint and still be able to search and sort all documents by indexed columns.

Note that the SharePoint library or list will need to be set up with column indexes before you begin uploading any of your Notes data.
