We are facing issue with creation of new or edit form in SP designer for SharePoint Online list where list view threshold reached 5000 items. List contains more than 5000 items and when we try to create new form in list its throwing an error for threshold limit reached. We have created filter on list default view but still its not allowing us to create new form.
