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.

I would really like to join this bandwagon. I think this is a necessary change for business efficiency as well as general communication efficiency. There have been many examples here of people requesting the recency posts be prioritized to the top and I could not agree more. I run a Safety Management Program through Teams and am trying to get my company to switch entirely to teams for business communications and it is impossible to do if the most recent information is not first thing present and maybe even include a search feature to find old posts. This surely has to be addressed and not ignored. thank you, Tony.
re-open please and do something with our comments!
This is becoming an issue with more conversations it becomes time consuming to scroll down the list. Can this be expedited. The code should not be that hard to change.
This is a basic usability requirement and should be re-opened.
I notice that this comment list is sorted with the new comments at the top....
fully supportive to the request. it is a basic function and really vital.
+1 on this. Surely an option to display discussions by newest first would be fairly easy to achieve and a quick win. I can't think of many (any?) online tools where the new stuff is displayed at the bottom of a pile of old stuff!
Other options may include the option to collapse threads but one step at a time.
re-open please. This doesn't make any sense as to why it should be at the bottom
reopen please, I think the voice of customer is coming through! What was your rationale?
It is hard to understand that this was "thought thru" from an end user standpoint?
It's a very big disadvantage to a Team, especially a large Team. Great product with a very major flaw. Great opportunity to turn a negative experience to a positive one!
Has this really been a feature request for over 2 years?
This is critical, cannot believe this was overlooked in the first place, when this very feed works in this manner

Agree with other comments. A toggle to choose a Twitter-like feed structure that many people are familiar with seems highly do-able.
Attention is a precious resource that I conserve. I need control over what I see, or I'm not going to participate.
As a business we have just started to use MS365 and can see real benefit in teams, but not this, will soon be very unwieldy, surely a simple and quick fix. Seeing the newest posts first is a must, please can this be sorted and soon.

I agree with everyone else's comments regarding this issue. It is completely asinine that Microsoft refuses to listen to its customers and address this issue!
Birgit Benson commented
It is extremely disappointing that you'd value the user experience so little … it is accepted common best practice to display the most recent posts on top … considering that Microsoft wants Teams to be the 'one all be all' going forward things like this item are a priority for heavy users of the platform … hoping you will reconsider for one of the next releases!

two an half years and still declined. wow. I thought MS was supposed to make things better and more proficient.
Tomas Kejzlar commented
can you imagine yourselves having more than 100 posts ? I guess no. Please give us the option to sort the list in reverse
This is interesting that this has been closed, logic says that the newest post should be first, the mind has been trianed to look at 1,2,3,4 and not 4,3,2,1 - hope this will be looked at at a later date even somebody at MS has said its closed. I would say keep voting for it.
this is really a pain to have to scroll down each time and make this option in team unusable.
Cathie Atkins commented
we can't use teams for various projects until you provide an option to change the order to newest first - just doesn't work for us otherwise
Leon McNamara commented
What a stupid decline, why would you not want to see today's messages first. Fix it, any half decent programer can write the code to do this in a couple of hours!
