We are migrating from on-prem SP to Sharepoint Online.  Traditionally when our list got close to 5,000 items I would move the older items to a folder. Now with SPO I would not like to do that.  Is there a way to have 10's of thousands of items in a list on SPO without having to worry about the 5,000 item limit?

 

Thanks!

I would say that you don't have to worry as much as before, lists in SharePoint are getting better and better in terms of performance and holding there thousands of items is not a problem
