Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom
Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).
Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones down the page. Conversations in Teams starts at the bottom and forces old ones up the page. Recommend you standardize on one method please. Confusing UX if you move between them.
Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.
We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.
It should be easy to be able to sort to the order that you want. It is surely needed.
How hard can it be to customize?
Teams have set back regular office work to 1985 before Windows.
Our employer has recently starting to push more use of all the Office 365 apps. We're now using Teams, Yammer, OneDrive, OneNote etc.
But one of the main pieces of feedback is that Teams is not popular as it isn't intuitive to read from the bottom - when Yammer, Outlook, news feeds, other chat systems etc all have the most recent item at the top.
I fear this will reduce take up as people don't like systems which are different or take more time to access.
this is ********... do it now!
We would also find this very helpful for Teams to have the most recent on top instead of having to scroll down all the time. It ids a time waster for sure. I hope this is getting closer to completion?
Being able to sort newest messages is a real need. What is the reasoning for declining the request. Please re-evaluate.

I guess I will move to a different collaboration tool. I hate having to scroll to the bottom to see the latest entry. I know what was written before and don't need to read them all again every time I enter Teams.
I just started to use teams and this is the first point of true frustation. It could be a deal breaker
This is such an easy win that can greatly improve the end user experience.
Why would you not prioritize this?
Oh, that's right; Lack of competition means you need not care about what we think.

This is surely a basic functionality option and given that we are forced into conversations at the start (for the moment) - at least let's have them looking up to date on the landing page. PLEASE make this is priority. It ruins usability.

Sort/Filter preferences on any messagin app should be the norm.
This is a low hanging fruit, people read from the top and down
Joe Murphy commented
Think with logic this time, the current sort; oldest on top is just silly.

Please provision to sort the Conversation in O365 Teams in Descending order. That way, we can see the most recent on the top than scrolling down several pages!

Please add this, feels awkward to look as generally every other platform has newest at the top.
People in my organisation simple wont use Teams because of this.
Should be standard feature to have newest topic on top, what good is it for anyone to see the same old post every time and scroll waaay down to reach what's new and relevant.
Martin Cooke commented
Seems ridiculous that I have to scroll through hours of messages in the same chat to get to the most recent. Add an option in to sort by oldest or newest, come on it's not hard
Every other application I use has the ability to sort. I read my email from newest (top) to oldest.
This feature is the default in Workplace for entreprise by facbook, so if you want become a challenger ....
