How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

File column sort order

Make column sort order "sticky" so that if I prefer to sort my files by Name instead of Last Accessed, Team will remember my preference within a Team

        It's 6 months later, is there an update? This is super annoying to have to resort each time I go into a folder.

        Hey Warren, I'm also interested in having this feature available. So I vote for a realization. Could you post when it will be ready to use?

        Warren,
        any update on the status of this functionality? When is it getting released?

        Thanks Andi

        @warren Could you update us on the progress of this? It is very very hard getting customers to start using the files tab i Teams as long as this feature isn't implemented.

        Yes, it is quite annoying the column sort does not stay. Please help push that forward. Thanks in advance

        Yes - please make the sort by name a 'sicky' sort. We often number our folders 1_foldername 2_foldername and it is very time consuming and frustrating to always have to resort each time i access the hierarchy. thanks!

        @Warren, any update on this? I have many users asking to be able to choose the order of their files and folders in Teams and keep it always displayed like this.

        Decades spent with a default sort order (alpha), and then this. Who is running the UI team? And seriously, how long does it take to change sort order, even if it's not sticky?

        This needs to be done yesterday. Do we have an ETA for delivery of this "feature"?

        Any update on this? I can't believe it wasn't implemented in the first instance. There should be so much more functionality for organisation in MS Teams. Even the inclusion of Folders for Teams would be useful.

        1. Requested on March, 11th 2017,
        2. Last update from MS on July, 8th 2018 - almost 6 month ago!!!,
        3. Current status on December, 14th 2018 - still nothing.

        Great and customer orientated approach MS (sic!)

        Man, how long could it take to implement such a simple, and helpful feature? This is one reason, why acceptance of the teams app is still weak in our company.

      • JPL commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Really looking forward to seeing this implemented. It will make the File app more useful / flexible.

      • James commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        My god this is annoying. Who designs these products?

        Why contradict a UI paradigm that has existed for god knows how long? If I sort by a column, remember it and stick with it.
        If I sort alphabetically, go into a folder looking for something, then go back and it has changed my sort, I have to resort to find my next folder to look in........that's just dumb.

        Really, really, really need this feature - completely illogical the way it is, and this should not be hard to implement ! People have been asking for this for 18 months
