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
We are happy to share that the column sort order can now be preserved in the Files Channel tab!
Please see the below SharePoint documentation for creating and updating custom views of a document library. This is now honored in Microsoft Teams.
Thanks for your feedback!

Also, some of the columns aren't even sorting correctly. Currently, selecting to sort by "Name" actually sorts on the "Modified" column.
This is definitely an issue, can't find folders at a quick pace. Also to find a folder the function of just selecting the first letter is not an option, having to scroll through several folders before you can get to the one you want. Please fix asap.

still an issue.
Yes, completely agree. Not being able to sort the folders the way I would like to is extremely annoying.
Please fix asap Microsoft!

I would say this is a vital function for the Teams library. Please implement that the same order as Sharepoint applies to the Teams Files View.

It would be great if it was based on the default view in SharePoint since that is the source of the documents anyway.
This is a pain point for me. retaining the chosen sort order by Channel would be fantastic.

I would love to have this implemented.
It may make sense to sort files by 'last modified' in a view designed for catching up, but this sorting is useless when browsing through a Team's files.
We are experiencing this as well. I have tried to change the sort setting via sharepoint, but the two are not linked.When you sort by Name, leave, and then return to the files section, Teams reverts to sorting by date modified. Teams should remember the last setting and be "sticky".

Isn't there any way to solve it? I think it must be included within the existing configuration options

Yes. This applies to files tab and existing sharepoint sites added to Tabs and the files and folders within them. It's a pain when you have a folder structure that reflects a natural flow or sequence of folders for quick comprehension that gets muddled by the default modified sort order coming back every time the view is loaded.
