Custom Group Categories for Teams
As I create more and more teams, I need to be able to group or categorize them. It seems like the only native groupings are "favorites" or "more". I would like to be able to create other categories. Once I get over 30 teams, grouping them into detailed categories is going to be imperative to stay organized.
Still under review by the feature team. Nothing new to report at this time.

I now have 25 teams and its become unwieldy - no update for nearly a year @warren

Definitely worth more than just a vote. The ability to create your own categories and place teams inside those categories (e.g. Corporate Teams, Dev Teams, Ad-Hoc Projects, Process Teams, etc) would be incredibly useful.
I love the fact our organization is moving more and more to teams rather than each group having it's own random location of updates, but I'm afraid that we will start losing engagement as trying to organize the information provided becomes overwhelming and decreases engagement.
Any progress on this one? My list of teams I am a member of is growing by the day and becoming almost unmanageable. Thanks.
At least a way to keep the teams sorted by either alpha order and/or most recently viewed and/or most recent activity, etc. would be helpful over the pile of mess that is developing. I know you can re-arrange at will, but when you get added to another team, you have to manually re-sort them again.
I like Teams, and will love it when I will be able to sort, classify, group by categories.

Complete agree with the overall idea. There has to be a better way to manage teams - i am currently in about 30 different teams within my organization, each time someone adds a project or some other activity that I am involved with I end up having to add it to my list and it makes it overly crowded and easy to miss important notes. The whole idea of teams is to collaborate better than currently applicable with Email; but as more and more projects are added or other activities it is creating a mess. Simply hiding some of these is not practical as some of these projects are long term...

Teams has changed the terminology to being "Your Teams" and "Hidden Teams". More categories are needed, ASAP
A simple visual grouping of all available Teams would be greatly appreciated

My company is starting to transition more and more into Teams. It certainly has a lot of cool and better features than Skype but organization/categorization is lacking big time. I've come up with my own way of organizing and grouping teams by creating 'placeholder' teams. This is NOT ideal by any means but the only way I know how. It would be FANTASTIC for Microsoft to come up with a better way of doing this. Please prioritize this

We are about to start using teams and this is one of the first things i looked for. Very surprised i have no ability to categorise groups.
Our managers are part of many teams, and it gets hard to keep track of everything. If they could group their Teams the way they want to work, this would be a huge step in helping them work more efficiently.
We also need this for Group display in Outlook
I would also like to see this functionality. I have a cluster of Teams set up for our IT team (projects, network, HR/admin, printing, etc) and it would be great to be able to link or cluster these so that it is clear that there is a relationship between them. I am going to make the central SharePoint site behind the Teams a Hub Site with the others as satellites, but it would be great to have similar functionality for Teams.
are there any news for this feature?
Please, please, please add this functionality. Our company love MS Teams, but without cub-categorisation we have to scroll down the teams we are assigned to. I have 20+ teams. Thanks!

Any updates Warren? Microsoft says they listen but we have not heard anything on this very important topic in months. Please fix this before it becomes a deal breaker for many.

We need this feature. Warren, Any updates?

Dear MS, Teams does NOT have feature parity with SfB until this feature is implemented. \goto is not an acceptable way of managing 100s Teams.

Microsoft - Can you please add sub-channels and categories on Team-item? This would help alot

We are going to integrate all our supplier into Teams with external users as well.
We really need a way to categories teams, like e.g. A, B or C Suppliers.
Because we deal actually with more than 250 vendors clarity is lost.
