I have done lots of research trying to answer this question but nothing seems to work correctly. I have a list that stores tons of values and when interacting with it there is always a throttle limit reached message.
I have tried solutions such as the ones in Disable Throttling on a single list
Below steps will help to change list view threshold view at the web application level.
• Login to Central Admin.
• Go to Application Management -> Manage Web Applications.
• Pick the Web application for which you want to change the threshold value.
• In the ribbon above, click General Settings. That will bring down a menu, from which you should pick Resource Throttling.
• Change the List View Threshold value.
Nothing seems to work unfortunately so any help is deeply appreciated!
