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.

is this going to be implemented?
Looks like I get to be the 100th commenter asking for this!
Please implement a way to group teams together.
This is feeling more and more like an essential feature. I am the Teams champion for one of your key accounts and I am being asked for this all the time. Please implement ASAP
whats happening to this beauty?
we use teams very much at work.
People start to complain about it being hard to remember where things are, what team is for what etc.
I would love to see the ability to move teams to groups/categories.
Let my list of teams be divided in smaller islands so i can see where my IT teams are, my economy teams etc.
Stop reviewing, start implementing!
Hi, this request seems to be around for quite a while. We in the company move now more and more to Teams. Saying this - the feature of grouping Teams becomes more important to us.
With the closure of my school because of the coronavirus, Microsoft Teams is going to be used to attend classes by distance. With the creation of a lot of groups, it seems that there should be a way to be able to regroup under different categories to not get lost.
Do we have any news concerning the progress about this topic, which the last "under review" message dates from august 2018, approximately more than a year old?

Any updates regarding the possibility to group Teams?
Agreed, one more level of categorization would be help greatly. I am not big on naming conventions, having to see prj or dept prefixes. But if I could easily tag or categorize a group of Teams like "Internal Projects", "External Projects", "Departments", or "Communities", it would be glorious.
Could not agree more with these comments. We need an approach that enables you to group and organise the TEAMS folder view on our screen in a logical manner that suits us the individual. What we have now can only eveolve into a disorganised mess especially if you have dozens of TEAMS sites you are a member of. Surely this must have been thought through in the Use Cases at the development stage?
Its clear Teams is a golden egg here. Some of these rather 'small' requests often have more of an impact than the larger ones. Its all about polish in the app, and being able to group teams, is incredibly important for larger organizations.
Its already possible, because Teams auto-hide's low used teams within the 'hidden' group, so clearly it can be done. Please push this forward as it makes more of a difference than you may realize. This and and easy toggle to sort all (or independently within said groups) by alphabetical order, etc.

It would be nice to handle Teams as we handle AD. On the manager side, we should be able to create Teams groups and sub-groups.
We (admins) should be able to assign or remove users from any specific group.
Users should also to be allowed to create "group folders" to better organise 20, 30 or 50 different groups.

This is a really important and key missing feature.
I agree, this is needed urgently.. and so does most of my team

I agree, why is this still under review. It seems like an obvious development feature to me.
Frank Smith commented
I'm surprised this feature has been in review for so long. There is a real need for it !

I'd have hoped that MS Teams had at least the same functionality as Skype when first released. We've been told at work we have to use and it is just a pain.
@warren: When can we expect to be able to use such feature? My teams is getting overcrowded!
Bob Richard commented
This feature is under review for an year, so when are you guys planning for next update?
Aristos Constantinou commented
I agree we need to categorise our teams into groups and to be able to give a name to every single group.
